Top 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Installing a Fence

A fence adds beauty, security, and privacy to your property. But before you grab a shovel and start digging post holes, there are a few crucial things to consider. Here at 76 FENCE, we've seen our fair share of fence installation mishaps, and we want to help you avoid them! Let's dive into the top 5 mistakes to steer clear of.

Fence Line Faux Pas

Knowing exactly where your property line sits is crucial. Building a fence on your neighbor's land can lead to disputes and costly removals.  At 76 FENCE, we can help you locate your property lines and ensure your fence is placed perfectly.

Material Mismatch

Pickets, panels, and posts come in a variety of materials, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.  For example, a wooden fence might not be ideal for a high-traffic dog park, while a chain-link fence wouldn't enhance the curb appeal of your front yard. Our experts at 76 FENCE will assess your needs and recommend the perfect material for your project, considering factors like durability, maintenance, and aesthetics.

The Permit Pitfall

Fences often require permits, and neglecting this step can result in fines and even removal of your fence.  Permitting regulations vary by location, so it's important to understand the requirements in your area.  76 FENCE can navigate the permitting process for you, saving you time and hassle.

Post Panic

Fence posts are the backbone of your fence, and skimping on their quality or installation depth is a recipe for disaster.  Weak posts can lead to a wobbly, leaning fence, or worse, a complete collapse.  The experienced professionals at 76 FENCE will ensure your posts are properly sized, installed at the right depth, and secured with the appropriate materials for long-lasting stability.

DIY Disaster

While some fences seem like simple projects, proper installation requires expertise. Uneven cuts, improper post setting, and flimsy hardware can all lead to a fence that looks less than stellar and might not withstand the elements.  At 76 FENCE, our certified fence installation crews have the knowledge and experience to build a beautiful, secure fence that will last for years to come.
