Semi-privacy fences usually have solid panels and maybe some lattice work at the top, or there is shadow box style where individual fence panels alternate on either side of the support boards. Decorative fences have pickets which help to keep children and pets safely inside the yard. The other option is to plant a natural, or living, fence. These can be created out of arborvitaes or some other tall hedge bush. They offer privacy as well as being good at absorbing sound.

A chain link fence or wrought iron fence will incur a different cost than a wooden fence. A short wooden fence will cost less than a tall wooden privacy.

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

Marylou Stanley Fence, 2018-07-06 13:12:09. There is no fencing material that has the natural beauty of real wood. Most people assume that a wood fence requires yearly maintenance and that it will not last very long. But that is certainly not the case. If a wood fence is installed properly there is actually very little maintenance and the fence can last for many, many years.

The concrete will require a month to reach its full strength. You can begin to work with the concrete in as little as 24 hours after placement given decent weather. In very cold weather allow at least 48 hours before resuming the remainder of the fence building project. During warmer weather or in the summer you can plan to be building the remainder of the fence 24 hours after pouring the concrete posts in place. As part of the post setting process it is critically important that you take the time to set up supports for your fence. If you do not set up supports for the fence the fence posts may slip out of plumb during the concrete curing process. If this happens you will come back the following day to discover that your fence posts are no longer plumb and square. This would require the removal and resetting of the fence posts. This is something that you want to most certainly avoid so taking the extra time to set up a system to hold your posts perfectly in place is a great idea.

These differences will determine the strength of the fence. 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.

In high wind areas six foot centers may be necessary. The diameter of the hole for a fence post is recommended to be 3 times larger than the diameter of the post itself. Make sure that the hole goes down below the frost-line. The frost-line can vary anywhere from 0" to 48" depending on location. All fence posts should be set in concrete. Fill the hole with concrete that has the consistency of thick oatmeal. Slide the post down into the concrete making sure that the post is plumb. Fence posts are normally set two feet deep into the concrete. A string line can be used to insure that the posts are at the correct height. Or, the posts can be set high and then cut to the correct height after the concrete has set.

Whatever the case, whether it's to keep other people's things out (noses, dogs, eyes) or to keep your stuff in (children, pets, sanity), choosing to build a fence leaves you with one big, resounding question. No, we're not talking about choosing between a vinyl fence and an aluminum fence (though we will in a minute); we're talking about how is the fence going to get up there?
Rhea Dalton Fence, 2018-07-06 13:12:11. When it comes time to dig the post holes you have a few different options. There are hand tools that can do the job however these require fairly extensive physical effort and should only be considered for smaller jobs. There are gas powered tools which can make quick work of even large jobs requiring many post holes to be drilled however this powerful machinery can be dangerous to use and has a bad reputation as being something that has the potential to cause injury.

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.
