Are you sure the posts have moved?
My parents house have a fence thats gone over and can;t be put back as its broken.
It's their fence, and I suggested until until weather ******s off before replacing it.

My initial assumption was about £30 for a typical sized fence section.. unless someone can put be right...

Well good luck if youhave to remove concreted in old broken posts....you may have to hire a suitable tool if that's the case.

Any higher???

Alot of fences are going to be sold this weekend I think.

If anyone in the landscaping/building industry has any tips or guides please please post.

I won't be fixing my parents place until late next week as I reckon prices will be going up due to demand.

But any help would be much appreciated.

just had a call from one of my customers,for me to go and measure up for a new fence she as lost 10 on one side and 6 on the other, and 3 across the back !

Lost 3 of my own, neighbour lost 3, neighbour the other side lost two, and one of the the other neighbours alsatian decided to go on walkabouts and fell into next doors pond whilst drinking out of it !

I'm listening to Radio 5 and it sounds like carnage out there...so glad I'm not gridlocked in some traffic chaos...and so glad to be alive as there have been deaths from falling debris and even one when someone was blown into metal shutters.

Stay indoors this evening is the safe option.

luckily i have a fencing etc shop 5 mins walk down the road but i still have to pay to get them delivered i can't walk them up the road lol :giggle: not little me I cant remember what i pay for mine under 20 each pounds i think including vat and they are good ones .
#12
:p Probably the funniest post in a long time!! You guys make me laugh.:p

10 panels here :roll:

We should definately continue the theme deals...
banned#13
when we put our fence up last year i think we paid £12 for 6' panels and £6 for posts from wickes

so far the panels arent broken but the posts are leaning over alot, just hoping they dont snap, hubby has propped them up as best as he can and taken 1 down cos it looked like it would snap :-(
#14

i think lots of people will be thinking the same i know i am i hoping if i leave them they might do there side :whistling:
but we both need secure gardens for the dogs so it will be a matter of who caves in first lol
#16
we got a dog who likes to wander, but he is 15 and forgets where he lives so we have 2 guide him back to the house.:giggle:
The cheapest place i can find is wickes
#17
http://www.wickes.co.uk/invt/540053 thanks these ones look good they do a cheaper one but these are better
does anyone know if it is free delivery instore also on orders over 45 or is it just online
plus does that price include vat as my local timber shop adds it on after
#18
next door neighbours side (8 panels)
My side ( none ! mine are all still up ! )

My neighbour is a miserable old git so this is justice....one of those types that moans about everything all of the time for no reason.

This windy incident has now given him a purpose in life...he can moan about it till the cows come home... and the cows will find it a lot easier now because they dont have to climb his fence to get into the back garden.... just hurdle the gravel boards :thumbsup:

Hi,

Wickes prices include the vat. I have used their panels and found them to be of a fairly good quality, good support on the top rails etc.

B & Q 's panels (the more expensive ones, not their cheapo range) are also good.

Roy.

P.s

Parkroadwest, when did my father in law move next door to you !

I think its usually the left hand side boundry of property is yours, as you look at front of house, from outside.
I may be wrong, but all houses Ive had or worked on this is the case.

5 down here btw, but the 2 I had to replace last week are still up :p

It's clearly stated in the deeds who is responsible for what fence.

Sadly not as simple as that!

Boundaries are ususally shown on your deeds. For most new houses the deed shows the boundary and has a 'T' shown on the plan - if the 'T' is within your boundary on your land then that means the fence/wall is yours and you're responsible for it. H or two 'T' on their side! means its a shared wall/fence.
If the deeds say nothing then in the case of fences with posts or struts on one side the law presumes that the owner on that side owns and is responsible for repairing the fence. This can be problematic with posts and panels!
Even more complicated if, like our neighbour, you own the fence but, put the posts and struts facing our garden which is not strictly speaking playing the game:? I dont have the heart to ask him to get the guys back to put the boards facing me and the posts and struts him:oops:

Thanks for the clarification fixngrout...I have a 1989 built house and fortunately the fence responsibility is clearly defined...I have the same problem as you but because the house next door was a "showhome" I have the posts on my side on a fence that is my responsibility...so both sides I have the posts my side....suppose I ought to be pleased that mine is still standing....the other side fitted concrete posts after the wooden ones collapsed last year.

Something my lawyer explained to me when buying last house. In addition I had to explain to my next door neighbour when he recently asked if I fancied going halves on a new fence:w00t:
I think as revenge he must have asked the workmen to put the posts on my side:giggle:
#28
Is there a guideline as to which side the posts go on?

I suspect most people cannot easily carry home fences on their cars...

Any tips on how to get a good price and get it home? How much does wickes charge in-store for delivery?
#29
just got mine they charged me 14 pounds delivery but it depends on your distance from wickes
#30
got 2, 6x6 premium panels from wickes last night, just under £30.. good quality ! put my roof bars on my astra and strapped them down well....... hungover the sides abit, did about 8 miles through town and then to the village where i live... all home safely..
just need the wind to stop !!!! so i can put up !

watch out when you get out the car as you bang your head !! OW !

Posts should go on the side that is responsible for the fence. Effectively the posts are on the land that has responsibility.

Unlike my neighbour who has effectively put posts on my land. If I was pedantic I could ask them to take it down as effectively they have stuck 6 dirty great posts on it:w00t:
And it may cause confusion in future
#32
I redid my side (LHS) last year, decided that the posts rot every 10 years or so, well that's how long they give you on them anyway, so don't expect them to last any longer, and put in those channelled concrete posts in, then just drop the panels in. Also used that quick set postcrete, set the posts in about 15 minutes, solid as a rock.
