We offer two options for fence post installation. Learn about each type below and decide which is best for your project.
Driven Fence Post
Using the driven post method, the post is inserted directly into the ground using a post-driver. This method requires no digging, no concrete and no set (cure) time. The result is a faster installation, no heaving and an overall stronger fence. Post driving works best for compacted soil and clay. Contact us with any questions about your ground material.
Post drivers can be purchased or rented at most hardware stores.
Concreted Fence Post
Using concrete to set posts is the traditional method for fence installation. This method requires digging a hole, filling it with concrete, setting the post in the concrete, back-filling the hole with dirt, then tamping down the earth around the post to secure it in place. A post set in concrete needs to cure for 3 to 4 days.
While common, this method is slowing being replaced by the driven method. However, if your soil is rocky, uneven or has pockets of loose or unsettled earth, the concrete method may be your only choice. Contact us with any questions about your ground material.
