If you’re considering fence installation
, the thought of doing it yourself may have crossed your mind. While there
are certain home improvement tasks you can tackle by yourself, some jobs
are simply better left to the professionals. Fence installation is one
of them. Installing a fence is a huge task, and one in which it’s
easy to make mistakes if you don’t have experience. Professional
fence companies can help you avoid such mistakes as:
Destroying underground infrastructures: There is a reason why utility companies stress the importance of calling
before you dig. In order to make a new fence sturdy and straight, post
holes will have to be dug deep into the ground. There’s no real
way for you to know where underground utility lines lie, including electric
lines, gas lines, and water pipes—all of which have potential dangers.
Professional fence companies know how to install your fence without disturbing
any underground structures and will research the layout of your property.
Not planning ahead: You will need your fence to have at least one gate, and many homeowners
prefer more. Placing these gates at the wrong location, however, can leave
you with a fence that is inconvenient to use and aesthetically unpleasing.
You will have to allow enough room for a gate door to swing open and ensure
that it is high enough from the ground. A professional fence installation
starts with thorough planning, including taking into consideration where
the best gate locations would be.
Installing a fence that you can’t use: Many counties and neighborhoods have ordinances outlining the type, size,
and style of fences that are and aren’t allowed in the area. You
don’t want to invest a lot of money in your fence installation,
only to be told by the authorities that you’ll have to take it down
because it violates regulations. In addition, fences that are not built
with the best material for the location can become easily damaged or weaken
