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.
Get to know what you really require either through the net or visit a professional fence company for guidance and inquiries.
Once you have layout the fence line with a string determine where to place the posts and the best place to start off is at the corners.. 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. Once you have poured your concrete ensure the post is still in position and let the concrete to set overnight.
To prevent moisture and decay position your rails leave a two-inch gap at the bottom and for animal and children crossing over or passing through your fence bury a small section of wire fencing along the fence line and fixed to the gap. Gates are highly recommended for property and homeowners and therefore ensure you have a strong and good gate.
After the paint has dried you can now attach the handles and latches.As you can get to see wooden fence installation can be done at home without requiring you to get to hire someone to do the job for you.
The cost of wood fencing varies on several factors such as did you have the fence installed by yourself or hired a contractor or the length and height of the fence. Then pace off the distance to get a rough estimate of the number of posts required then measure the length of one panel and calculate your cost. 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. Also, the terrain you want to have your fence on will impact on the cost since a rough terrain will require more work and also materials.
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. when getting a contractor don’t always go for the cheaper one cause you may end up getting the work done poorly but rather get to do some research on the contractors works and projects before doing so.
Also take in to figure the cost of the gate and materials needed like nails, cement and paint but they are all depended on the number of posts you use. The cheap panels may seem suitable but only for repair purposes and not when you are doing a new or replacement 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.
