Cenflex at Home Depot w/ free shipping to store ... thoughts?
I'm looking at re-fencing my paddock / dry lot -- which is an almost perfect 120 x 120 square on three sides, with the barn making the fourth side. I just saw that Home Depot now has Cenflex flexible rail fencing and supplies ... and if you choose ship-to-store and pick up at the store, you get free shipping.
Has anyone else ordered through Home Depot? Any thoughts?
Wow, it would be great if they started selling more Centaur products. Pricing seems to be a touch higher than through a distributor but that would offset itself in freight expense. I've used Home Depot alot for home improvement stuff and prefer them over Lowes. Have not used them for fencing supplies but I can't imagine having issues with them.
Hi Bluey -- the paddock borders the actual "lawn" of my home. I'd like something with a little more "curb appeal" than portable panels, though they definitely are a good idea. I won't need portability because the paddock is ... well ... unless I move the barn and/or the house ... the paddock stays where is / as is!
I put in Cenflex fencing last year and I love it!!
My farm website below my signature has pictures on the farm page. I had it professionally installed for the perimeter fencing with pounded posts. DH and I put up a small pasture ourselves with the posts also pounded in. It was fairly simple to put up, the only hassle being when you have to splice the rails together and when you have to brace the corner posts.
I went with brown rails on the posts so I wouldn't have to paint. My posts are spaced 10' apart and the top rails is 5' high. We did buy the hotwire to go between the top and middle rail.
Saw this type fence over in La. after a few years the heat and wind caused it to stretch, and sag.
It might have been same type, but doubt it was Centaur if it stretched much. Heat and cold will cause some slight expansion and contraction, easily remedied by tightening or loosening. Just part of the minimal maintenance needed for it. But there are good and bad versions, and Centaur makes a very good product.
Thanks, Horsepoor. There is one version of flex rail that has you install the brackets by screwing through the rail....no way to tension it. Have seen several
such installs around here that make me want to get out with bolt cutters and cut it down. Any product not properly tightened and/or installed can look like s___
after time. Then I've seen Centaur fence up for over 20 years and still looks
