8 foot fence pos

A standard 8-foot fence post can have a weight range of nine to fifteen pounds, depending on the material chosen. Opting between wood, metal or plastic will also bring forth varying benefits and disadvantages. To assure you make an informed decision, familiarize yourself with the various offerings of 8-foot posts!

Pressure-treated wooden fence posts are the most popular fencing material, lending themselves to both a traditional look as well as customization via staining or painting. However, since wood is a naturally occurring material, it can be susceptible to the elements; warping, cracking and splintering are common over time.

For long-lasting protection and minimal upkeep, metal fence posts, crafted from aluminum or steel, are a top choice. These sturdy structures are impervious to rot, warping, or splintering, unlike wooden posts. While metal posts may require a greater investment upfront than wooden ones, they remain virtually care-free – no need to worry about staining or painting! On the downside, during warmer months the material can heat up and become difficult to handle.

The latest trend in fencing is plastic fence posts, which represent an eco-friendly solution. Made from recycled materials, these posts require little in the way of maintenance and do not need to undergo staining or painting. While plastic posts offer convenience and environmental-friendliness, they may be less resistant than that of wood or metal in harsher conditions such as when exposed to strong gusts of wind.

Seemingly minor errors while setting 8-foot fence posts can pile up to create major issues, such as slanting fences, splits in the fencing, and even full-on disaster. To ensure the fence stands up to its expected life-span, be sure to insert it correctly.
