Before you start off you have to ensure all the required tools and materials to avoid interrupting the process which is rather not a good idea cause you may end up with something different from your expectations.
If this is your first time putting up a fence on your own keep in mind that a fence is a long lasting feature for your home so you better get it done right.
Step one in doing a fence installation is to find and map out the boundary pins and run a string along the fence line.. Before setting the posts ensure there are no obstacles that can hinder construction or damage equipment along the survey line that is where you intend to build your fence. To prevent the post from rotting add or rather pour two to three inches of gravel at the bottom of the posts hole, this will also allow adequate drainage.
After the concrete has fully set remove the bracing and confirm if the post is still in position, if it is then you are doing great and can this time start at the front and attach the rails with a wood block, screws, and nails or metal brackets . Gates are highly recommended for property and homeowners and therefore ensure you have a strong and good gate.
After all this is in place you can now get artistic and paint your fence to match your landscape. All it takes is to follow all the steps carefully and doing everything right.
The bigger the area to be fenced the higher the cost and this is because a bigger area requires more materials compared to a small area.To get a rough price of the posts measure the perimeter of the property using a tape measure and divide by eight. The materials you select the type of posts to use, whether the posts are made of steel or wood e.t.c will determine the cost. Additional groundwork as stated will cost you cash and therefore should be considered as a cost.
this then means the current posts should be removed and to remove them well you can use a wood post puller which makes it easier. Having to do the job yourself will cut you off some costs since you will work at your own pace and not have to pay a contractor everyday.
The easiest way of estimating the cost is to determine the cost of a single fence panel and multiply it with the required number of panels that can complete the job. This panels that are pressure treated are mostly made from pine and often sag after installation.
As said earlier having a change on the fence design will increase your cost from the estimate done above and should be decided on carefully.
