Are you thinking about DIYing the fence you have always wanted on your property? Even though fence building may seem simple, it’s deceptively difficult. If you have ever driven past homes with floppy, sagging fences, you can see that there’s more than one wrong way to install a fence. Fence builders know how to handle every step of a fencing project. They simply don’t make the same mistakes that homeowners do.
The video on this page discusses five of the most common mistakes homeowners make when installing a fence themselves. Many homeowners don’t bring in an off-site team to trace all of the pipes and wires running under their lawns before starting a project. They also don’t bury their fence posts deep enough to ensure they are stable. Homeowners also frequently rely on pre-built fence sections that can’t adapt to the shape of the ground they are installed into. They also don’t use metal frames behind wooden fence gates. Finally, they often don’t transition between fence heights well.
The video goes into greater depth, so if you’re about to take on a fence project, give it a watch before you start. You can also contact local fence builders for a consultation. You may be surprised at how well-priced their services are, and you’ll know that the job is done right.
