    Default How to install Post & Rail Fencing in details?

    Hi, may I know how to build traditional Post & Rail Fencing like https://www.stratco.com.au/au/fencin...-rail-fencing/ ?

    Since my old fence is treated pine fence with steel post + rails, I don't want to change everything.
    If to install colorbond fence correctly like https://www.bunnings.com.au/diy-advi...olorbond-fence, I need to replace post too, which is I want to avoid

    I found a video online https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y__c...annel=DIYDORIS, but it is not very detailed.

    I'd like to know
    1. how to connect two panels, that is, how to overlap one panel to another panel?
    2. can I use bunnings panel https://www.bunnings.com.au/colorbon...main_p0910327? or I have to buy https://www.stratco.com.au/au/fencin...-rail-fencing/ for post and rails fence?

    I tried to find a detailed youtube video how to install this post + rails colorbond fence, but sadly unable to find anyone

    Seems like you want to keep part of the old fence eg posts etc it would be handy if you post a pic of your current fence.

    The are using wood post & rails bet essentially same as your metal post and rails. Have a look at the 2min mark of him putting up the sheets.
