Vinyl fencing is beautiful, and certain styles offer superior privacy because they are designed as single panels. However, while the fence style is lovely, the panels do require a certain level of precision when it comes to installation, which is why it is usually best to hire a professional. Any fence installation will require similar steps though, and it is good to understand these steps before the work begins.
Before allowing any company to begin work on your property, be sure they have the necessary permits. Every municipality has different regulations, and it is essential that you or the installer receive the city’s approval before starting the work or you could end up with having to pay fines and penalties and still not have a fence or worse have to remove the fence you just put in.
Tie Off the Area
Once you have the proper permits and an installer, they will likely come out to your property and tie-off the area. This temporary boundary allows you and your contractor to make any necessary adjustments before the final fence installation, ensuring that when the work begins, there are limited, if any, hiccups.
Measure Posts Locations Precisely
One job that is extremely important to the installation process, especially for single panel fencing, is the precise placement of the posts. This precise step is why you will likely want a professional installer in the first place. If the posts are cemented in the wrong place, it can negatively affect the rest of your fence and may even inhibit the rest of the installation.
Vinyl fence Installation is similar to any other fence install, but when it is designed as single panel sections, there is an increased level of precision required. For that reason, a professional is usually your best choice, especially a contractor who has experience with vinyl fencing and is willing to prove that experience by providing referrals and a portfolio.
