Can anyone tell me if the standard 6' fence panels are actual size, or
nominal (I.e. some allowance for post thickness)? I guess I could answer
this by taking a tape measure down to B&Q, but this group has not yet
let me down!
I ask as I need to replace a fence which is about to collapse due to the
fence posts having rotted through. These posts are (were) located in
metal pegs, which I'd hoped to re-use, leaving them in their current
locations. However, measuring the existing panels reveals these to be
between 179 and 180 cm, about 71". Once panel is only about 4' long, so
I'd have to cut one panel, but I'd rather not have to do the lot!
The other alternative is nail feather edge boards up individually to
arris (sp?) rails. Or closeboard panels - are these nailed to rails, or
do these also fit inbetween posts? I'm somewhat loathe to follow these
options, as they're more costly, and we don't intend to be in our
current house for more than another year.
Many thanks for any response,
