Building a fence sure is not an easy job to do. We have to make up our mind either by contacting the professional one or doing the build a fence thing using our own hands. It will be challenging though. Like we have to do some research first before we do the project? Sure we have to. Do not go randomly building the fence without getting known the process first. You know appearance and construction are two important things that should be considered whenever we are getting ready to build a fence. So you have to know that you have to make plans, measurements first before doing the job.
The first consideration is how you are going to support the fence. It is only as strong as the supports, a fence is. Best is you have to use cement as the supports for the fence. You have to place the posts in cement to make a strong fence you could ever had. A sealer or using pressure treated wood will provide you with a fence to enjoy for many years to come, so do your best do the project! You probably need to follow some basic steps in how to build a fence below here. It is a piece of cake you can do it even using your own hands. Just you probably need a help from someone to hold and lift up the fence.
First, you have to lay out the posts preferably six feet apart from each other before you begin to build the fence. After that you can stick up the string line in order to keep your posts in line. This is important, so make sure you do it properly. Third steps, you have to dig holes 18 inches deep using a post whole digger, and then you can put the posts in each post hole. Fourth steps, you can mix the cement for the post holes and fill all the post holes using cement to level with the ground. Next steps, you have to check each post to ensure that they are level and plum, so they will be ready for the next steps. You should also let the posts set for 24 hours before continuing to build the fence. Sixth steps, once the posts have set up you can cut the top and lower the fence rail, so you can nail them 4 feet apart from each other. Do these steps carefully. After that you can nail up your pickets maintaining a ¼ -inch gap in between them and then trim any excess wood off the top of the post, and voila, you have a brand new fence!
