$69 per panel
Yes but dont use cedar it absorbs to much when wet, use pressure treated pine and seal aleast 1 inch above ground, helps the post last longer, cedar will hold water longer causing rot, do it right the first time
For your professional look, use 3 ½” x 10 exterior screws with a T-25 star drive head (the driver bit head comes in the box). Depending on your choice of stain, use tan or green colored coating screws. Since this type of cedar is soft wood, no predrilling is required (if your posts have been placed 8’ on center) because the course threads are designed for that purpose and you’ll want a good fasten on the fence board itself. Be sure you have a good drill that has an impact feature or allows you “set the head of the screw” just slightly below the wood’s surface. Place no more than 3 screws at least 1 inch from the edge of the panel at the horizontal 2 x 4 support; so for an example, you’ll need two boxes (50 count) of screws for six posts. The fastener quantity for 18 screws per post will be fine because if the panel becomes damaged or needs to be replaced or moved, it will be more difficult to extract the existing screws.
James - One of these fence panels weighs about 135 pounds.
Charlie, We do not recommend installing this fence panel to a chain-link fence. This panel is meant to be installed with a wooden fence post.
Your question is sent across the country so the prices for this and most items will differ on the location. Keep in mind that many locations offer a discount for bulk orders as well. In my area, each panel is ten bucks cheaper per panel compared to buying just one panel. Be sure you look at the delivery charge if you choose that. In my area, the standard delivery charge is $60.00 but it may be different where you live.
I think it could be done, but I would probably want to update my cuss word vocabulary first. Structurally, they just aren't made to be mounted horizontally, so you'd have to beef them up. Most municipalities frown on fences higher than 6 feet, so you would probably need to cut these down to 6x6. You would also have to space your posts more closely, and since the most expensive part of a properly built fence is the time and cost of properly installing posts, you'll increase that by 25%. Bottom line, You could do it, but I'd recommend that you visit the store and have a look at these first before you commit.
The panels will not shrink, but the individual pickets will, and over many seasons, some will come loose as they work the fasteners. Keep them well treated with a stain type sealer and you will reduce the seasonal swelling and shrinking. To the extent that I have had any nails work loose on these, I replace the nails with screws.
