Installing a Trex fence isn’t difficult to do. To help provide you with the basics for measuring, scoping and installing your project, download Trex® installation guides and go from dreaming to doing. Additional help can be found on the Videos page. And if you’re feeling overwhelmed, consider hiring a Trex® Specialist to build your fence for you. Check to see if a Trex® installer is in your area.
Looking to install a gate? If you don’t already have your own plans, you may want to consider purchasing a pre-built gate from Trex®. Special installation instructions are also available to help you quickly mount and adjust the gate.
One of the benefits of a “stick-built” fence system is that you can modify heights and angles to accommodate slopes. There’s a little math involved, but don’t worry, it’s actually fairly simple to figure out with our slope calculator.
Sometimes posts need to go on top of concrete walls or on another flat mount surface*. It’s actually easier than you might think! Because the Trex® post is hollow, it can be installed over steel pipe or a tower. And, because the internal support is hidden, the result is a clean, attractive appearance without the utilitarian look of external post bases. Another popular design, particularly for perimeter fencing, is to install Trex® fencing between masonry pillars such as brick columns. The instructions below will help you integrate your fence seamlessly into the pillars creating an elegant and stately design.
*Whenever a post is installed, it should attach to a surface and with a methodology that ensures it will be secure from movement. Evaluate your installation environment to determine beforehand if the mounting surface is sufficiently strong enough to support the weight of the fence and the lateral pressure of elements such as wind.
