Fences come in many styles, and they serve different purposes depending on the type you get. Therefore, if you’re going to get one installed, you need to factor in many things before reaching your final decision. To help with the choice, you should ask yourself a few questions first. Here is what you should ponder to make deciding on a fencing style easier for yourself.
How is the Ease of Installation?
There will be fences that are easier to set up than others. This can influence the time it takes to complete the installation, so keep that in mind if you need your fence installed by a certain time.
There are people who will choose the classic picket fence. Wood has been the gold standard for picket fences for years, but vinyl has started to make a statement in recent times, proving itself as another viable option. Either way, you’re looking at around a day’s worth of labor to get a picket fence installed, and the installation is fairly straightforward.
Then, there are privacy fences. These come in a range of heights, colors, and styles, allowing you to customize your fence however you want to suit your home. As long as you have a dependable fencing company helping you with the installation, you’ll have no trouble getting it set up.
Lastly, we have ornamental iron fences, which are rumored to be more tricky to install. Fortunately, this isn’t the case. The material is light, so working with it is much easier than you may think. It still helps to have guidance from a professional just to be safe, especially if you don’t have experience installing fences on your own.
Can the Fence Be Built Without Needing to Sink Posts?
This is mainly a concern for wooden fences. You may be hesitant to sink fence posts, especially if you have temporary fencing. If your fence is only temporary, you can secure posts with the help of concrete blocks. Attaching your concrete blocks to a bracket is the first step, and this bracket is able to hold so many different possible fencing materials. After that, have your posts mounted to the bracket first, then to your fence.
Permanent fences do require sinking fence posts, though. Based on the material you have for your fencing, the way you sink the posts will vary. Your fence material will also impact whether or not your posts have to get cemented.
