To keep your space private, secure, and heighten the boundaries of your abode, adding a rise to a vinyl fence post can be an easy and successful undertaking. Extending the post will bolster the shelter of your garden or yard, while safeguarding kids and pets alike.
If you’re looking to add a bit more height to your vinyl fence post, you have two effective options – metal or plastic post extensions and wooden fence posts. The former can be conveniently picked up at any nearby hardware store, whereas the latter requires a bit of maneuvering; you will either need lumber of similar thickness as your existing post or opt for something broader, requiring the drilling of a hole through the center for the vinyl post’s insertion.
After acquiring your extension, the next step is to figure out the elevation of the vinyl fence post. Combine the total height of both the post and the extension, then spot this measurement on the extension itself. Subsequently, take a saw and cut the extension at this boundary.
At this point, it’s time to join the extension to the vinyl fence post. Whether the post extension is fashioned from metal or plastic, screws should be used to attach it to the main vinyl post. On the other hand, if you are using a wooden fence post, you can adhere the extender using either nails or screws. Remember, it’s essential you have the extension in an even alignment before attaching.
By simply mounting an extension, you can easily furnish your fencing with whatever material you deem fitting to provide yourself the seclusion that you wish for.
