There are many fencing material options available to you when you are doing fence planning. You want to choose a quality material that will last, and a material that will give you the desired effect of decoration, privacy, or property barrier. Some of the options for fence types include picket fences, board fences, rail fences, lattice fences, PVC fences, aluminum fences, chain link fences, basket weave fences and custom fences. Any wooden fence can be constructed from different types of wood. A wooden fence can be painted, stained or left natural. A metal fence can also be painted.
Now that all the posts are in place and the concrete has cured enough for you to continue the project it is time for you to put up the fence stringers. These horizontal connection points between the posts are what you will mount the fence boards onto. You should use a minimum of two stringers for any size fence and as many as required to make sure that you have no more than a 24 inch gap between stringers. The method of attaching fence boards that you use will depend completely on the design and style of fence that you have chosen to build. Consider renting or using a pneumatic nail gun for the process of putting up the fence boards. Using screws is ideal however somewhat overkill for most fence projects. Using a regular hammer and nails causes a fair bit of trauma to the new fence and still only somewhat cured concrete fence posts. Using a nail gun for putting up the fence boards can be a huge timesaver.
Lattice Top Fence The lattice top fence is a typical variation on privacy fencing, with a section of decorative lattice along the top. Creative homeowners can take this concept a step further by incorporating lattice sections into the body of the fence to create an interesting, semi-privacy effect. You can use a narrow section of lattice as the frame in a picture frame fence, or alternate lattice sections with solid boards.
Before you start building your fence you need to lay out the area properly to get a good idea for where the fence is going to sit in proportion to the house and surrounding area.It can be helpful to run string lines at the elevation that the fence will be at in terms of its finished height. You can run these string lines both at the top and at the bottom of the finished height of the fence.
Iron Fencing Iron fencing has long combined both beauty and function in residential, commercial, and industrial situations. Also known as ornamental fencing, it was originally made from wrought iron. Steel or aluminum are now incorporated into production. Most commercial and industrial fences are made using welded or assembled steel. Aluminum is more common in the residential arena. Iron fences can be designed with pickets above or below the fence's top rail. Also, aside from its customized, ornamental appeal, iron fencing provides security by keeping unwanted prowlers out and pets and children in the yard.
