Top Palisade Fencing related questions
Palisade fencing is a kind of security fencing that uses two horizontal rails connected by vertical rails. They are usually 1 to 3 metres tall, and property owners have the option of adding spikes to the top. Palisade fences are easy to maintain and affordable to repair. They’re also quite secure since they’re practically impossible to climb. Want to install a burglar alarm to increase your protection? You can find a reliable security system specialist through Airtasker.
This may depend on your location and community. According to networkrail.co.uk, for example, there are specifications for steel palisade fencing that covers galvanising, steel grade, and the strength of nuts, bolts, and washers. Their regulations also specify bedding concrete grade. There are also British Standards for wooden palisade fences (BS 1722-5:2006). To ensure that your wooden or metal palisade fencing complies with engineering standards and building codes, ask the Tasker you hire for their licence and certifications.
To start installing your wooden or metal palisade fencing:
Mark off the perimeter and make sure that any utility lines won't get hit while digging.
Dig a hole for each post, following the manufacturer's instructions.
Use concrete and gravel to support the posts, then check that they're level.
Once the concrete has set and the posts are secure, install the rails and pales.
Hang the gate.

Wood palisade fencing looks great and adds a classic look to your property. It's also a natural material, and bamboo fencing is seen as "eco-trendy" since it's a type of wood that grows back quickly. What you do need to watch out for when working with wood is its durability. Untreated wood is particularly attractive to rot and bugs. Plus, it requires regular cleaning, refinishing, and treating. And eventually, all wood will warp.
If you choose to install a metal or steel palisade fencing, note that the design may not work with the look you envision for your home. Next, some types of metal may require regular scraping and painting to get rid of rust and other signs of wear. The good thing about choosing a metal palisade fence, though, is that you get a long-lasting, inexpensive, and generally low-maintenance way to secure your property.

What do palisade fencing services include?
Palisade fencing services generally include everything from positioning the post holes to hanging the gate. Some Taskers may also be able to purchase the fencing materials on your behalf, contact utility companies, and get the necessary building permits. This doesn’t apply to all fencing installers, though, so make sure to add these services to your task post or check with the Tasker you hire.
Usually, a palisade fencing installation consists of the following steps:
Setting up the posts
First, the palisade fence installer marks the perimeter to be fenced off. They also make sure that no utility lines (water, power, sprinklers) are hit. Then, they determine where to place the posts. This depends on the length of the horizontal rails in your fencing system.
Next, the Tasker digs a hole for each post. This step usually depends on the manufacturer's instructions, plus some allowance for concrete. Once the first hole is ready, the Tasker mixes the concrete, then puts 5-10 centimetres of gravel at the bottom of each hole (for drainage).
Palisade fence installation
They stick the post into the hole, pour the concrete, then check to see that the post is level. The installer then stakes the posts using wood, wire, and rope. This stops the post from slipping out of place while the concrete dries. Your installer then repeats the process for the rest of the posts. After this, they usually wait until the concrete dries before proceeding to the next step.
Laying out the rails and pales
After putting up all the posts, it's time to layout the rails (horizontal railings) and pales (vertical railings) for the fence - first, the Tasker drills and bolts the rails into place.
Next, the Tasker measures the distance between the first post and first pale, lines it up, then attaches the pale.
Once all the pales are attached to that section of the fence, the Tasker fixes a support footer to the centre pale. This support footer is usually a piece of metal driven into the ground to support the weak middle part of a fence.
Once the palisade fence is done, the Tasker may install or hang a gate themselves. If this is not part of their services, or you have a different design or material for your gate, you can get a gate installed by a local expert.
After that’s done, why not use our platform to see to your other chores and errands? You can hire a local handyperson or security system specialist through Airtasker.
