A privacy fence may be what you need to allow you enjoy your peace of mind in your background. When it comes to building sturdy fences, cedar is the best material to use. The material is sturdy, naturally water resistant, attractive and long-lasting. Elkhart Fencing Company has vast experience in this field and here is how to build a cedar fence.
Our professional team begins by measuring to define the location of the posts and then mark the point using a specific paint. The depth and width of the holes, but it’s essential for the holes to be 4 X4’. Also, the distance between two holes must not be more than six feet to ascertain the strength of the fence. Concord Fence Company uses this same tactic.
After everything is measured, we start digging the holes. We always confirm with the local government authority for the guidelines on the necessary depth of the fence post holes. We also ensure that the area does not have any buried cables on the ground before digging post holes.
After digging holes and excessive soil has been removed, we then mix the concrete. Then, we place every post in the hole and fill it with a concrete mixture. A shovel is useful when mixing it. The hole is filled up to the top, else we leave a few inches and fill it with soil to cover the concrete.
The next step is securing the level of cedar fence. After the concrete have entirely thickened to the point of firmly holding the fence, it is the time to level the ground around the post. Our Company allows the concrete to cure overnight before backfilling it with soil.
Another crucial step is cutting the posts to the desired level. After that, we attach the rails. Mostly, the top rail is placed an inch above the height of the posts. We use two-inch nails to connect the rails. Also, a lever is used to guarantee that the rails are straight. For a double sided fence, it is useful to attach rails on both sides of the post.
After the rails are correctly in place, we then install the fence boards. We always ensure that the boards are slightly above the ground to prevent them from attracting moisture. Thereby, they will not rot. It is essential for the boards to be on the same level with the posts. The next thing is nailing the boards. After all the boards are fitted, it is time to add a cap. We usually cut 1X6 cedar and install it on top of posts.
Installing wood face panels is another service our proficient firm provides. To begin with, we prepare the posts by ensuring they are firmly placed in the holes. By use of the best panels in the market, we install them on the rails. The next step is staining the panels.
