How A Fence Is Installed

Now don’t get too worried, these are quite basic.

  1. Posts have to be installed at the proper depths. Wooden fencing needs to be treated to prevent decay or infestation. Spacing of each post is very important or else it will be very obvious to see an off-spaced post.
  2. The rails must be parallel and firmly attached to each post. Leave it to the experts who know how to do this even on slopes!
  3. The cladding or covering must also be firmly fixed and spaced evenly to the rails. Your cladding could be pickets or panels, depending on your choice.

Then he will ask you what material, style and design you prefer. Once you’ve agreed to his quote, all you need to do is wait for his team to arrive with their equipment. After a thorough clean up, you can admire your beautifully built fence.
