Steps for Fence Installation or Repair
Fence Installation can vary depending on the type of fence and the degree of damage. Your Fencing contractor will assess the situation and make recommendations. But if you need a new fence, here’s the process your fencing contractor is taking you through:
Step 1: Choosing the Fence
The first step in installing fences is the choice of the type of material you need. Some of the most used fencing materials are included below:
Solid panels: Colorbond panels and Good Neighbour fences are the most popular options known for their high durability, low maintenance cost, classic style and privacy.
Timber: wood fence installers in here in Melbourne can add value and charm with a suitable garden fence, a pet fence for the back, or even do the fence staining or painting for you.
Brick: Brick fence installers can adapt the fence to your home style, make sure your new fence mixes with neighbouring features and even build a retaining wall.
Glass: Glass fencing is often used in swimming pool fencing and balcony fencing.
Chain wire: The wire fences of the coupling chain are an affordable option, consisting of a wire mesh and held at regular intervals with metal poles.
Screening: hide an existing fence or create a private projection with the bamboo fencing or the brushwood fencing.
If you are not sure which fence to choose, your fencing contractor will help you in selecting the most suitable fence for your area.
Step 2: Fence installation preparation
Fence installation begins with the preparation site. This involves measuring and marking the area of the fence, controlling the border and removing trees and other obstacles. Once done with fence line measurements, your fencing contractors will dig holes for the intermediates, the corners and the gate post.
Step 3: Installation of the fence post
The next is that your fencing contractor will install the end, corner and the gate post with a ready mix of cement. As concrete blocks, it will be checked whether the post is leveled, plumb and focuses on the fence line and the then correct height. Then they’ll install all the post in between. Your fencing contractor can leave them overnight, to ensure that the concrete is completely dried before carrying out the next step.
Step 4: installation of the fence panel
Once the posts are secure, the fence will then install the fencing material and the panelling and will ensure that it is safe and stable. Your fencing contractor will finish off the task with matching edges and cappings to declare edges of a fence and internal bits of damage and rust. They will then install the fence gates and check if it opens and closes smoothly.
