FENCE CONSTRUCTION

PROTECTING YOUR PROPERTY HAS AS MUCH TO DO WITH KEEPING STRANGERS OUT AS IT DOES WITH KEEPING THE DOG AND KIDS IN. THE PLAIN PICKET FENCE OF YESTERYEAR IS OVER. TODAY’S FENCING CAN BE WORKS OF ART WHETHER THAT’S BY INTERWEAVING METAL AND WOOD FENCING OR RUNNING THE BOARDS HORIZONTALLY.

QUALITY FENCE CONSTRUCTION IS ALL ABOUT ACCURATE MEASURING. WE MARK THE LOT LINE CORNER POINTS, CHECK THEM AGAINST THE LEGAL PROPERTY DESCRIPTION AND THEN SNAP CHALK LINES. WE INSTALL OUR 4.4 FENCE POSTS AT LEAST ONE FOOT DEEP IN THE GROUND (MORE FOR TALL PRIVACY FENCES) AND WE SET THE POSTS IN CONCRETE EARLY IN THE DAY TO ENSURE THE CONCRETE IS DRY AND THE POSTS ARE ACCURATELY POSITIONED AND ARE STURY BEFORE LEAVING THE JOB SITE.

WHILE A LOT HAS BEEN MADE OF THE TERM “LEVEL PLAYING FIELD” MOST YARDS ARE NOT COMPLETELY LEVEL. BEFORE WE DIG THE FIRST POST HOLE, WE HAVE ALREADY LEVELED THE PROPERTY SO THAT GATES OPEN SMOOTHLY AND THE GATE LOCKS ARE FULLY FUNCTIONAL. WE CONFIRM THAT THE TOP RUN OF THE FENCE IS ALSO PERFECTLY LEVEL. NOTHING LOOKS MORE AMATURISH THAN THE TOP OF THE FENCE THAT IS UNEVEN POST TO POST.

ONCE THE PANELS OR WOOD ARE INSTALLED BETWEEN THE POSTS, WE MEASURE AGAIN TO CONFIRM ALL IS LEVEL AND EVEN. THEN WE SPRAY ON STAIN THAT IS SPECIFIED FOR OUTDOOR WOOD USE.

ORNAMENTATION IS ONE WAY TO DISTINGUISH YOUR FENCE TODAY. ORNATE SCREWS, HOUSE NUMBERS, AND EVEN MAIL BOXES ARE ATTACHED TO THE WOOD FENCE PANELS. OTHER POPULAR FEATURES INCLUDE SOLAR LIGHT
PANELS ATTACHED TO THE FENCE PANELS. CAN WE SAY MEASURE AND LEVEL AGAIN IN THIS POST? IT’S IMPORTANT THAT WE MEASURE TWICE AND INSTALL ONCE TO ACHIEVE THE PERFECT FENCE INSTALLATION.
