Many property owners decide to do projects themselves to save money. There’s nothing wrong with that! However, for many first-timers, fencing installation is overwhelming. There are many mistakes than can be easily made when certain aspects are overlooked or the proper equipment is unavailable.
Incorrect Property Lines are Marked
Perhaps the most costly problem to remedy, having the fence not properly located on your property and along the property line. It’s incredibly easy to no have the property line’s marked properly, and if you happen to end up installing the fence on your neighbour’s property, you most likely will have to remove it. Professional installation companies will ensure that the property lines are marked by professional surveyors, which essentially eliminates the risk of this mistake being made.
Posts Not Buried Deep Enough
Another common mistake is not burying the fence posts deep enough. Generally, for most fences a two-foot depth is required. Of course, this varies due to the fencing type, the soil type, and the installation’s purpose. It’s very difficult for a novice to accurately determine the optimum depth for their fencing to be installed.
There are a number of other issues that can come up during your fencing project if you’re attempting to tackle it yourself. Deciding on the appropriate materials to use, acquiring specialized equipment, getting the appropriate permits, and then ensuring you have enough help to complete the project in a timely manner can be overwhelming. Many types of fencing simply cannot be installed without professional installers.
Why would you want to take the risk? When you use a professional fence company, you give yourself peace-of-mind knowing the job will get done, and it will be done well. Properly-installed fences last significantly longer than poorly installed projects, which ultimately ends up costing you less.
