Fence repair and new gate

This was a nice job at a house near St Austell. The owner has moved in recently and the existing fence had never really been completed and there was no gate.

Our remit was to make and fit a gate and to improve the fence so that it all matched. We utilised the existing fence posts and rails to keep the cost down and finished the fence off with the same round top treated timber that we used to make the gate. We used good-quality hinges and a catch and capped both gate posts off with galvanised caps to prolong their life.

We also mounted the owner's existing wooden postbox onto one of the gate posts to make it easier for him to get his post.
