Fence. Tuesday , July 17th , 2018 - 10:45:31 AM
Adding a fence to your home or upgrading an existing fence offer more value than what is visually seen. Your needs will determine exactly what fence you choose for your backyard. My girlfriend for example added a chain link fence to the border of her backyard. At first the fence was installed as a barrier for the dog. Years later they installed an in-ground pool and decided that a more secure fence was needed to secure the pool area. They installed a wrought iron fence about five feet tall with a locking gate. This fence provides safety keeping the pool area secure for when an adult is not outside. The chain link fence keeps people inside the space and the wrought iron fence keeps children and pets out of the pool. Your fence must meet your family's needs. A fence will only add values to your home and is an upgrade that will pay for itself.
The first planning step is to consider your reasons for wanting a fence. Do you need it for child safety, pet protection, decorative purposes, privacy, or as a barrier to trespassers?
Setting the posts in place for your fence is one of the most critical components of the project. If the posts are not set correctly or are set out an angle or offset slightly the end results will be very noticeable in the Esthetic of the fence. Be sure to double and triple check your measurements before committing to digging your post holes. You need to be sure that you have even spacing of the post holes in that you have accounted properly for any intrusions such as the gate on the fence. Also you must consider the length of material that you'll be using for the rails or stringers in the fence. The rails of the fence are the horizontal pieces that you attach the fence boards themselves to. If you put the post holes too far apart the stringers will not be long enough to reach from one post to the next. This is one of the most major problems that you certainly want to avoid when installing your own fence. The spacing for your fence posts should be equal so that is a quick and easy way to double check your spacing but nothing is a substitution for proper measurement with the correct tools.
