Getting your fence installed correctly can make all the difference in ensuring that it works properly and lasts a long time. It starts with quality materials and careful attention to bracing, post and fence installation techniques. Most failures are caused by improper construction of the end and corner post assemblies. These elements are critical to the overall stability of the structure. When end and corner assemblies are constructed correctly, a few line posts can actually fail without affecting the fence as a whole, and breaks in fencing wire can be easily repaired. The failure of a bracing assembly, on the other hand, may require that the entire fence be rebuilt. The final step in construction is the installation of the actual fence. Each style has its own set of challenges when it comes to building a successful enclosure. Pre-planning makes the process easier and more efficient. Therefore, make all the necessary preparations before starting the installation process. Have tools, materials and safety gear close by.
