The Do’s

  • Do double check to make sure you have received all parts and materials before beginning construction.
  • Do make sure the concrete, for corners and ends, is completely set before tightening or hanging the fence.
  • Do use a leveler, this will ensure perfectly plumb posts.
  • Do gather all your tools before beginning and make sure they are all in working order.
  • Do add gravel or crushed stone to the bottom of your postholes. This gives posts a solid base, but is unnecessary when installing in areas of heavy clay and rock.
  • Do plan your gate placement before beginning construction to avoid issues with post and brace placement.
  • Post should be 3 feet below the ground level to avoid dislocation of post due to high tension
  • Every corner of field should be fixed with c – channel post , c – channel post should be installed at interval of 50 meter in straight length also to tension fence properly.

The Don’ts

  • Don’t install your fence without first checking your property lines carefully.
  • Don’t eye ball post placement. Measure carefully for evenly spaced fence posts, making sure to mark all post placements in a line before digging.
  • Don’t skip corner bracing. Corner posts carry the weight of your fence stretched in two directions, this means bracing should be adding in each direction for a more secure fence.
  • Don’t skimp on the depth of your postholes. Corner posts should sit a few inches below the frost line to prevent posts from heaving. This means in most areas your post should be dug to a depth of 3.0 feet.
  • Don’t install your line posts before marking layout. Installing the mark line first gives you a perfect guideline for placing your posts
