Easy Install Fences

Easy Install Fences

Fence installation can be tough and labor-intensive, but fence producers have developed numerous solutions which make installing a fence a job that any homeowner can accomplish. A number of these easy-install designs simplify the setup process by doing away with all of the frills and concentrating entirely on the fence’s function, while others try to be as elegant as a custom-built fence.

Vinyl Fence

Because vinyl fence systems are designed with prefabricated parts, their setup requires less labor and time than comparable wooden fences in which the parts are measured, cut and assembled onsite. In a typical vinyl fence installation, the contractor installs the fence posts and then secures a horizontal rail in the base of the poles. Tongue-and-groove pickets are subsequently inserted into the bottom rail between the poles; when all of the pickets are set up, the contractor installs the top rail, that secures the pickets and completes the fence panel.

Bamboo Roll Fence

Rolled bamboo fencing consists of fence panels made from bamboo canes which are attached to one another with strings; the bamboo is rolled up for transport and unrolled through setup. Like most fence installations, the setup of the type of fence begins with the setting of vertical poles and the installation of flat rails between the poles. The contractor then unrolls the bamboo, pushing it against the flat rails; screws spaced 12 inches apart secure the bamboo into the top and bottom rails.

Deer Fence

Simple containment fences are only functional, serving only to keep animals inside a boundary or to prevent unwanted animals from entering. The fencing material is a plastic mesh that arrives from the manufacturer in rolls; through setup, the mesh is unrolled and attached using zip ties to steel poles which have been driven into the ground. The bottom of the fence can also be secured into the ground with stakes at regular intervals in order that animals are unable to push beneath the fence.

Metal Fence

Decorative metal fences made of iron, iron or other metal are accessible as prefabricated fence panels, making their setup less complex than that of fences that are fabricated on-site. Installation of these fences consists only of setting posts and then attaching the panels to the poles. Many metal fence systems feature panels and posts which are pre-drilled using holes for connecting the parts to one another, that eliminates the need for measuring and drilling during setup.
