Katy Luna Fence, 2018-07-14 17:10:17. As I mentioned in the beginning we thought installing a fence on our own would be no big deal however after settling on a fence we loved we knew we were in over our heads. The aluminum decorative fencing we ordered was elaborate and needed professional installation. Being that there are a number of fencing companies available throughout Michigan it is important that our first stop was the BBB in our area. Along with checking in to make sure we were dealing with only people known to be rated as professionals we next went to our family, friends and co-workers to determine if anyone had recently had a fence installed and used one of the BBB recommended professionals. Thankfully one stood out as a reference from a colleague. We were able to determine that the company operated in a manner that was expected in a professional arena.

As always when hiring a contractor, combine related projects to get better value, get multiple bids on any job, check the BBB and licensing department for complaint history, and be sure to verify references and inspect prior work before making your final selection - the lowest cost quote for the wood privacy fence installation may not save money in the long run if the job is done with poor workmanship, low quality materials, or the contractor doesn't stand behind their work

Cedar stringers will more closely match the look of the fence boards and make for a more uniform looking fence. Treated stringers are not recommended as they have a tendency to twist as they dry. The stringers are attached directly to the sides of the posts without any brackets required. Usually only two stringers are needed. The bottom stringer is often installed about a foot up from the ground. The top stringer is installed at very the top of the post. In high wind areas three stringers are recommended.

Existing growth or trees in the fence line may need to be removed to make room for the fence. Rocky soil conditions may make it difficult to dig the fence post holes and sandy or marshy soil conditions may require additional groundwork to ensure the footings will hold the fence posts securely without leaning. Installation on a grade or other difficult terrain will also increase the cost. Replacing an existing fence presents other challenges, in most cases it is advantageous to re-use the existing fence post holes which means the current posts must be removed. The Wood Post Puller makes it easier to remove fence posts with any lifting method - even broken, rotten posts set in concrete footings or in difficult clay soil.

Try to avoid the thin pickets that are sold at the big box stores. They may cost less but in the long run they are not worth it. Thin pickets will cup and warp over time. It also helps if the pickets are rough sided rather than smooth. Rough cedar will accept stain and/or preservative much more readily than smooth wood will.

The second offers you immense personal satisfaction but may see your quality suffer (no offense, we just don't know too many professional fence builders who search for fence articles on the Internet). And lastly, you can have a blend of professional quality and personal satisfaction.

Having considered a business as a viable option to make fences for you, the final check can be done by asking them to provide you with references of those whom they have provided business and the fences that have been installed subsequently have always been considered the best that there are. If such references happily inform you that they are fully satisfied with the fences that have been made, then you can give this business the opportunity to do your fences.

Here's are some ideas for personalizing your privacy fence Basic Privacy Fence A standard cedar privacy fence typically measures six feet in height and features tightly-fitted boards. The top is usually flat for a smooth, even appearance. One way to add interest to a basic privacy fence is to use dog-eared boards instead, resulting in a dynamic pattern along the top. You can also experiment with different board widths or alternating board heights.
