Get That Vinyl Fence Project Done With These 5 Simple Steps

Starting a fence project

Starting a fence projectIf you know how to build with LEGO blocks, then installing vinyl fences could come easily for you. South Jordan residents have been switching to vinyl fencing because of the advantages that comes with it. It doesn’t fade, rot or even need paint; the only thing it would need is some cleaning every once in a while. In this article, we’ll show you how you can install your own fencing, from finding a fence company to finally adjusting your post heights.

Clear the Area

Remove anything that might get in the way of your fence. This may include removing any bush or trees that are in the area where you want to install the fence. You may have to contact local utility diggers to make sure you don’t run into underground utility lines before you start digging for fence posts.

Take Measurements

Once cleared, it’s time to find out just how much vinyl fencing you’ll need. Place stakes in the ground and rope the area you’re planning to fence in. Take your measurements to your local fence company and they’ll help you with just how much fencing you’ll need.

Digging Holes

Once you’ve marked the corners, it’s time to dig holes for the posts. You will need a level and a power auger to properly dig your holes. Make sure that they are at least 10 inches in diameter and are deep enough to bury at least 1/3 of your posts.

Put Up the Posts

Fill the holes with 6 inches of gravel to secure the post to the ground. Next, use quick setting cement to fill the rest of the hole. You will need a mallet to hammer the post down and make sure that the middle is filled with the cement. Check if your posts are plumb with a level and continue with the other posts.

Install the Fence

Vinyl fencing is very easy to install because most of them just generally snap into place like LEGO blocks. Follow the instructions from the manufacturer to make sure that you do it correctly.

If you follow all these steps, you’ll find yourself enjoying your new fence before the weekend is over!
