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.

One thing to remember when hiring a professional fence installation company is to know that handymen often offer their services under the caveat that they can do anything.

The phrase you get what you pay for is true when it comes to fence installation. The handyman (or your husband) may be cheaper but it will show in the finished product.

A general rule of thumb to estimate the cost of many home improvement projects is to calculate the materials cost and double it to determine the total project cost when using a contractor. For most fence projects this method will overestimate the project cost by 10-20% so it can be used as a conservative approximation. Installing a wood privacy fence is a significant project due to the amount of work, but not too difficult for the typical homeowner and the cost savings can be substantial. The American Fence Association estimates the average cost of privacy fence installation at approximately $17 to $24 per linear foot for a licensed, bonded, and insured contractor (2013 figures). This estimate doesn't include sales tax or permit/inspection fees that may apply in your locality.

For aluminum, the larger the picket, the stronger the fence. Aluminum fences are much cheaper than iron fences because they are much easier to install. On a broader scale, aluminum typically falls somewhere between vinyl and wood fencing in terms of cost.

Usually, a developed community will have written standards as to what is and is not allowed. Your HOA or local city or county government will have these guidelines, and tell you if there is a formal permitting process for prior approval. It's common to gain written pre-approval after submitting a plan that details the location, layout, size and materials. If the permit application asks for a Property Plat of your property, that is often found in your settlement documents or at the municipalities tax or records departments.

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.
