How to Build a Fence
First, plan where your gate posts are going to be. Gate pickets should be aligned with the posts’ inside faces. Your gate size should enable use of full pickets.Note gate and post locations on the graph paper you use to draw a fence plan. Take gate hardware into account. Keep in mind each set attaches differently.
Planning Your Fence
Map out all fence corners, lines, gates, and lanes. Mark the future location of these fence elements using lath, bright paint, surveyor tape, or a long tape measure
Fence Post Repair
Before our teamstarts work on your fence repair, we will saturate the damaged parts with a wood preservative. This is if the reason for the fence repair is rot. Wood preservativekeeps it from spreading. We make sure the rail is level before we start working on making a cleat to support the rail. It’s a good idea to fit a 2x4underneath and use galvanized nails to nail it to the post.
The next step is to carefully caulk the sides and top of the repair to prevent moisture from seeping in.Galvanized steel T-braces are a more durable fence repair solution, available at most home improvement centers and hardware shops.
To use T-braces to repair rail, level the rail, then drill pilot holes into the rail and post. Galvanized screws will fix the T-braces to the rail nicely.
Caulk the joint, then paint the T-braces in a color corresponding to the fence.
Reasons to Choose Our Fence Repair Services
Before you get to work on fence installation or fence repair, check homeowner’s association guidelines and local codes that might govern fence size, style, and placement. Posthole requirements may also be specified within codes. Find out if you need a permit.
Make sure you’re aware of property lines. To be safe, talk to your neighbours along your proposed fence line.
How to Install Concrete Fence Posts
You need to fix concrete fence posts into the ground the conventional way, which is by digging a hole. When you concrete the fence post into the ground, it should be at least 600mm deep. We recommend 760 mm for a 1.80 m high fence.Use either Post Mix concrete or a mixture of ballast and cement to install your concrete fence post. Slotted fence posts made of concrete are used with fence panels,the entire length of which is slotted to facilitate stepping on slopes. If you’re using slotted posts, you don’t need fixings to mount fence panels.
How high can a fence be?
Contact the local planning office to learn what’s allowed in your area. Fence height is a planning policy issue. As a rule of thumb, fences in rear gardens can have a maximum height of 2 metres.
