Get concrete posts with the recess in them for the fence. Won't blow over and when they get old and knackered you just slide them up and out and slot a new one in. My neighbour keeps replacing his fence like every year because he has wooden fence posts. They literally rip the supporting batten off the post every time theres wind more than 20mph

cheap and weak, they are not rigid enough. You get what you pay for in life, the wind here snapped these like twigs. Money down the drain and a massive lesson learnt.
Good luck claiming on warranty. B&m 6x5 17.50.at weekend.
Good deal for overlap, but from my experience if you buy this cheap stuff you'll be buying it again in 10 years or less. Even if it doesn't rot the wind will blow it down or someone will fall through it.

It's better to pay more for feather edge.
Wickes don't provide the warranty the manufacturer does. Read the reviews of the people who tried to claim....
B @ Q are £19.90, bought some 4 years ago about same price and as stated have three vertical pieces supporting the other side... diy.com/dep…prd

What happens to some are there wet when fitted and when they dry out they shrink and become a loose fit, then on a windy day they blow out?
B&M are selling the same size for £17.99. Their fence panels are actually the same as the range from B&Q i.e. the Grange ones and are slightly cheaper.

Voted hot as it depends whether you have a B&M near you.

B&Q are the same price as Wickes as mentioned above: diy.com/dep…_IL

They are like sheets of paper
I get mine from the local fence
feather edge treated panels are the best. To buy these panels will bukle in the heat .just from
Any links to the windproof ones, I've had a look around and nothing to suggest the more expensive ones will last longer or windproof.
Im on the fence with this deal
Wicks often have big stack of slightly damaged fence panels for a fiver each.
I just sorted through the pile and bought ones that have come apart a bit rather than being smashed.
Bought and extra panel for spares and a pack of ring shank nails from screwfix and did the garden for less than £60
Saw this deal and the +324 heat and thought I was going to be a lone voice saying don't buy this type of fence!

Despite the heat most comments ae negative toward the deal for the same reason I was going to say - these are effectively 'sails' on a windy day and want to take off! When it's windy enogh they will take off!

Spend a little more on a vertically slatted fence - which will last a lifetime unlike this type - I know from experience sadly!

I don't see this cheap, local garden centres even provide panels with like mini feather boards.

Feather edged are also prone to snapping in the wind.
Anyone know where to get bargains on concrete gravel boards and posts for fencing please

Here here. As a Structural engineer stuck in a rut designing metal fences, it's 99% the post that fails (or the post's connection to foundation if there is a concrete foundation).

I found lawsons very cheap and was very shocked to find the prices even cheaper instore compared to online, When i repaired my fence I brought one 9ft post and two extra tall gravel boards for about £30.

Voted hot. Hmm to DIY fix my ripped fence but not sure if it will fit in my outlander PHEV for click and collect.
There £22 normally
Voting cold
I’d buy them but they won’t fit on the bus.
Pinterest has lots of DIY groups including making fences out if old pallets ideal if you can source the pallets for nothing.

Fences are no different than any other building, they depend on the foundation. Like the question how does the sky scraper stay up? Ask what is put in underneath!
I bet a lot of fences came down last night!

I have feather edge. It didn’t come as panels - the chap made it up. Personally I find Wickes wood in store warped, knotted, split. I suspect that is because people have sifted it leaving only the dregs! Unsure whether the fence wood is the same

I always buy 2 6x3 panels instead of 1 6x6 its dearer but a lot stonger.
If you’re using these with concrete gravel boards you can always secure an additional piece of wood either side of the fence panel at the middle point to slot over the board. This will minimise the panel wobbling about in the wind.
the thing with most fences is they dont allow the wind to pass through, best type is a staggered horizontal or vertical either side of posts

This is not the case.If you have an issue related to a warranty then Wickes have a legal obligation to sort out the issue bc your contract is with Wickes and not the manufacturer.

You can buy galvanized brackets to stop the wind blowing out your panels.Screw three of these brackets onto the base panel (concrete gravel board) and it should stop the wind blowing out your panel.You can buy different bracket designs,there is one bracket that goes the full length of the base panel.

Not cheap this, local fencing companies do them for 15...or much better quality for 20 pound...shiplap for 30
delivery cost for wickes big & bulky has not been factored.cold

Any good tutorials you would recommend?
Wickes are a bunch of crooks in my experience, not voting cold, but I'd avoid like the plague.

I don't need luck bc I don't buy these sort of panels off anyone.I have lived in my property for nearly 30 years and never have I experienced any panels being blown out ;). Next doors have bc they have the same panels Wickes sells and you just can't educate some ppl.

I did have one issue with Wickes over a hozelock hosepipe I took back for a refund.The manager refused to give me a refund bc I would not give him my details.I then complained to the CS who gave me a full refund plus the hozelock 2415 worth £47.99 free.I told the manager to eat humble pie XD.

10 Year anti rot, but will fall apart after 3 years or less. Standard price really. Not voted either way.
