Self-Installation

Whether you opt for a vinyl fence, a pre-fabricated option, a metal railing, or an old-fashioned wooden fence, proper planning and professional guidance are the keys to success.

Although many people think they can simply start sticking posts in the ground and there won’t be any problems, proper installation of a fence has to be entered into wisely. In some cases, there are necessary permits, construction considerations, and hiccups that you’ll come across if you don’t plan ahead. However, with thoughtful preparation, and a little help from the experts, you’ll have your brand new fence up and ready in no time at all. Here are some things you’ll need to consider as you start your fencing project.

  • Finding your boundary line
  • Know what’s below (Why call 811?)
  • HOA requirements
  • City ordinance regulations and permits
  • When you share a wall with a neighbor: what you need to know
  • What kind of fence is best for you?
  • Can you install a fence yourself?
  • What to know if your ground is uneven
  • What to know before installing a gazebo

Your fencing project might be a measure that you take in order to increase security around your yard, house, or a special area like the pool. It could be a necessary addition to a deck that you’ve had attached to your home, or a way to make your back yard be more private.
