Concrete Fence Posts

12

Concrete fence posts are strong and long lasting and offer great fencing solutions for all kinds of property such as farms and home gardens/backyards.

A fence is only going to be as good as the posts that support it. No matter what kind of fencing you are planning to use, it is going to be the job of the post to support the weight of the fence.

The saying that “Good Fences Make Good Neighbours” is a good one and demonstrates the satisfaction that many people derive from good, secure fencing which can not only offer security for your property and keep unwanted visitors out but also keep your farm stock in.

 

Precast Concrete Fencing Posts

Concrete fence posts are strong and long lasting.

When working with concrete fence posts, you have a number of choices. You will have to decide what type of fence panels you want to have. The type of panel that you select will depend upon what you intend the fence to do. Do you want garden fencing, or are you looking for something that will offer more security?

 

Concrete Fences

 

Concrete fences are ideal for the person who wants to have a very solid fence. This type of fence does come in a variety of different heights and is often used to block backyards that face onto busy highways. Steel fences offer security, but enable people to see both in and out of the yard and do nothing to block out sound.

 

Concrete Fence Posts holding up a Chain Link Fence

No matter which fence you decide to use, you are going to have to dig holes in which to set the posts. These holes should be at least a third of the height of the pole that you want to use.  Most people want to have their posts set in concrete. This is the most permanent and stable way to build a fence. You can do it yourself or, if you prefer, you might want to hire at least part of the job out to a professional fencing company.

 

Choosing a Fence Company

 

A good fence company can help you with the right concrete fence installation for your farm or backyard and it’s worth your time and effort to look around for local concrete fencing contractors. Hoover Fence is a wonderful fencing company that has been around for years. They not only sell all different kinds of fencing, they also sell fencing tools. They can provide you with everything from levels to fast-setting concrete called QUIK-ROK®.

 

Concrete Posts for Fencing

 

Mixed fencing is an option that you could consider. You may decide that you want to use concrete posts, but you want to have a chain fence. Not all companies sell just the posts. Anderil is one company that does sell concrete posts. Buying concrete posts for fencing does not mean that you have to build an entire concrete fence. Many posts can be used with wood and chain or even vinyl fencing.

 

Wood Garden Fence with Concrete Fence Posts

Concrete fence posts can be used to support a wood garden fence.

Concrete fence posts will last for years and can be used to support almost any kind of panel. You only want to build a fence once. You do not want to have to be out repairing the fence every couple of years. Concrete posts will ensure that the job is done right the first time.

I am in SF Bay area (Walnut Creek, CA to be exact), I am looking to attach steel 2X2 to a concrete fence post in front of my house at front door. We need concrete fence posts that are 5 feet high to support open fence and a small gate. Since it is at the entry to our house I do not need much more that 4″X4″ or 6″x6″ concrete posts.

If you know of any suppliers in SF Bay area that provide this product would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for visiting our blog. Although there are many fence installers/suppliers in your area, please contact the following two (one is in Concord and the other in San Ramon) for your requirements.

However, regarding your specifications, it may be advisable to go for the 6″x6″ instead of the 4″x4″ as I read on a forum somewhere that if the 4″x4″ concrete post is used, there is a chance that water could “get to the rebar causing the rebar to rust & expand, which would cause the concrete to spall off” – maybe it depends on how much it is exposed to constant moisture.

Anyways, here are the two dealers:

1. Tib’s European Quality Construction Inc
1195 Court Ln, Concord, CA 94518
PH: (925) 935-3752 | Fax: (925) 825-4015
Email: TiborAmbrus@yahoo.com
Website: http://www.teqceastbay.com/

2. C & J Fencing
12893 Alcosta Blvd. Suite P, San Ramon, California 94583
TEL: (925) 355-1380 | FAX: (925) 355-1512
Website: http://www.candjfencing.com/

I hope you’ll find what you’re looking for. Do let us know.
Good luck.
Thanks.

Hi Michael. Thanks for your kind words.

Most of the fence builders in and around Ventura use Vinyl, Wood or Iron as fencing materials. Your best bet seems to be Fenceworks Inc who are based in Riverside but they do have a location in Santa Paula close to where you live (right off Freeway 126, Exit no. 10). From my knowledge, they do carry concrete fence posts and claim to “service any job throughout California within one hour of our nearest yard”. Here is their Santa Paula contact information:

Fenceworks
891 Corporation St.
Santa Paula, CA 93060-3005
Tel: 805-933-4522

Main Office:
Fenceworks
870 N. Main St.
Riverside, CA 92501
951-788-5620
Toll Free: 800-350-5620
Fax: 951-788-5649
Website: http://www.fenceworks.us/

Give them a call and explain your requirement. Good luck and do let us know how it went.
Thanks.
Sandy.
