When building your first fence you see all these different options for your posts panels and don’t know what to buy. This blog posts aims to help you pick your fencing that will suite you.

The First step on purchasing your materials for your fencing will be post selection, we stock 3 different types of posts including timber, concrete and Steel post. We will be going throw the aspects of each post to let you decide:


Our timber fence posts come in different styles we have the slotted ribbed posts which come in intermediates corners and ends to suit the direction of your fence and our sawn timber fence posts that come in 3” square 4” square and a 4” x 3” post these post type will need

The Average timber post will last between 10-15years giving you plenty of use out of these posts.

When installing post you can either dig post holes and secure with post mix having at least 2 foot in the ground to allow enough support for the fence , if you are using sawn timber post you can also use post spikes stab straight into the ground and secure the post inside bracket or if you are place this fence on a wall or on paving slabs you can use a bolt down simply secure the bracket to the ground using bolts then insert the post.

With the Slotted timber post to attach the fence panel to the post all you will have to do is correctly space the posts and slot the panel in the gap. Our sawn timber posts have two options for securing the panels. Panel clips can be used to easily attached the panel to the post or you can screw through the post into the panel.


Our Concrete posts are slotted and have 4 different types to suit the fencing area, this includes intermediates, ends, corners and 3-way corners.

Concrete post last around 25 years and will easily out live the panels uses only issue with concrete post is they will chip and crack over time.

When installing concrete post you will need 2 people as the concrete posts weight a lot, the only way to install these posts will be digging a 2 foot hole and using post mix to secure the posts in.

The concrete posts have slots to allow easy installation of fence panels as they slot straight in.


Our Steel Duraposts come in 4 different types/styles coming in brown, olive, Galvanised and anthracite. The steel posts are similar to concrete posts as these posts have slots and come in intermediates, ends and corners to suit your area.

The steel posts have the same 25-year lifespan as concrete but due to them being steel they wont crack or chip and will keep looking pristine for much longer.

Steel posts are the easiest post to install as they have the built-in slots for easy panel securing and because these posts are lightweight this mean these panels are easily installed by one man making the installation process much cheaper. When installing these posts, the only way to do so would be digging a 2-foot hole and securing the post with post mix.


The next step would be selecting which fence panels you are after. As fence panels are much more than just for show we have broken down the reasons for selecting these panels.


-European panels are your much more expensive and stronger panels with the added benefit of many different design options including privacy panels and panels suitable for windy areas.

-English paling panels are a strong panel made in either single or double sided that allows the wind to pass through easily and can provide come privacy with the double option.

-English lap is a simple privacy fence our cheapest option in fencing panels with the draw back of not being the strongest panel for windy areas and this panel won’t allow

-Featheredge has the privacy aspect of the lap panel with the increased strength of the over lapping timbers which makes it an ideal panel.

At our Fencing & Decking branch located in Allerton (BD15 7QE), we have just completed a 12-week yard extension to give us some much-needed Room for our Fencing Timber.

During the summer it became quite challenging to match supply to the increasing demand for fencing & decking products however with this extension we now have the capacity to take our stock holding to a whole new level. This means we can supply more customers with their fencing and decking projects next year.

A special thank you to Buntons who took on the project! http://www.rbunton.co.uk/contract-services/construction-civil-engineering/

The following images were taken throughout the construction of our New Extension:

1. The plant starts to arrive as we prepare to get underway

2. The grass bank has been completely dug out (looks a little tidier already!)

3. The material begins to arrive to create a solid foundation using Gabions.

4. Plenty of baskets to fill!

5.  The sun is shining but there’s a long way to go yet…

6. The Gabion baskets are slowly getting higher!

7. The level isn’t quite there just yet but getting closer

8.  Preparation begins for the concrete pads:

9. Really starting to take shape now…

10. Last couple of pads to go!

11. A proud moment as the first load goes into the new area – a load of sleepers ready for next year!

Manningham Fencing & Decking - Expanding our delivery fleet - 08/05/18

At our Fencing & Decking branch located in Allerton (BD15 7QE), we now have a second delivery wagon to cope with increased demand! Allerton started as a timber mouldings specialist over ten years ago before we added a fencing and decking element to the branch. Originally we began without any wagons and relied on deliveries by our other branches – This seems a long time ago now!

1½ years ago we got our first wagon our little 7.5-tonne merc. After much growth we decided to upgrade our delivery force so in April of this year-  just in time for the spring rush - we received our 26 tonne Iveco. This has increased our delivery capacity significantly and now we can take larger and increased numbers of deliveries, meaning more and more people can get there fencing and decking done this year.

Our new and bigger wagon is a 26 tonne Iveco. This wagon has a maximum carry weight of 14,000 KG and maximum length of 7.4 Mtr. No need to worry about the size of your job this wagon can bring it all. With Hiab offload we can easily drop tonnes bags and concrete fencing, saving you time having to help offload the wagon!

Our smaller wagon is a 7.5 tonne Merc (which we have been running with for the last 1½ years) this wagon has a maximum carry weight of 2500 KG and maximum length of 5.4 Mtr. This wagon is for the smaller jobs (weight wise) this wagon is primary used for timber orders and can also carry bulk bags depending on the load.

If you wish to place your own order and see one of these beauty’s for yourself, please call our Allerton branch on 01274 548861 or place an order via our website.

Composite Decking- Product Info - 07/02/18

Composite Decking is becoming all the rage. As we head toward spring, we are fielding more enquires each week at our fencing and decking branch located at Allerton (BD15 7QE). At Manningham concrete we sell 3 Ranges of composite; from the competitively priced MC Deck to the premium Trex boards.

Composite won’t warp or splinter, it will never require staining or painting, it is fade, stain, mould, rot and scratch resistant and will look as good in years to come as when it was first installed. No screws, no screw holes, just an easy hiding fixing system. nothing to interrupt the smooth texture and comfortable feel of your new Composite Deck.

Installing your composite decking might seem like something you’d want to leave to the professionals but this video from Trex will explain it. This might not be as tricky as you think! Watch these Trex Transcend boards being put down without any hassle!

Rock Salt - Product Info - 19/12/17

With temperatures plummeting over the past couple of weeks and plenty of Ice around it’s the right time for a blog post on Rock Salt. At Manningham Concrete we sell Rock Salt in either a brown grit or a translucent white. Both forms are available in 25kg or 850kg Bags and we’ve special offers available depending on how many you purchase! Although white is a little more expensive it creates less mess when walking inside buildings, unlike brown which can leave quite a bit to clean up! Rock Salt is a natural substance that will help you remove ice quickly. In this article we’ll cover how to use salt to melt ice on driveways and pavements.

Step 1 - Shovel Snow from the Area

First shovel as much snow and ice as possible from your driveway or Pavement.

Step 2 – Apply Salt

Apply the salt to the icy areas on your driveway or Pavement using a shovel. You should notice the ice start to melt away quickly, with thin patches of ice gone in a matter of minutes.

Step 3 – Remove Ice with a Brush or Shovel

Whisk the remaining ice away. Your thin icy areas may completely melt away, but you’ll likely need to shovel away the thicker patches.

Step 4 – Reapplication

Reapply the salt only as needed after shovelling. With a healthy supply on hand you should keep the dangerous icy patches away for the duration of the winter months.


Consider purchasing salt in bulk. It can sit quite happily for extended periods of time without losing its effect. The benefit of buying in bulk is money saved in the long run and when the cold snap hits, there’s guaranteed to be supply issues.

Try to keep the salt away from your lawn if possible. The chlorine released from the salt will kill the grass.

Keep your salt away from anything metal. It will start to corrode metal when it gets wet.

Salts besides magnesium chloride only work well when the outside temperature is above -7 degrees Celsius. If it is colder than that, sand might be a better option. Sand won’t melt the ice, but it'll provide you with traction to avoid slips and falls.
