A residential fence installation is a process that requires many different steps. These steps vary depending on the type of material used and the amount of fencing being installed. Watch this video for a step-by-step look into an aluminum residential fence installation.
To start, you want to make sure that the holes for the fence posts are dug to the correct specifications.
Also, before you dig any holes, should call to make sure you are allowed to dig in the desired area. You do not want to dig into any underground utilities that are usually marked. The holes should be deeper than the frost line of your area. You can use manual post hole diggers or gas-powered augers.
This depends on personal preference as well as the availability of the tools. Then you will need to fill the holes with concrete making sure that the posts are level in all directions. As you work down the line of the fence, you will want to fill the holes with concrete. Depending on how wet the ground is, you can “dry pack” the concrete or mix it before filling the holes. You should be marking multiple different things throughout this process.
If you are unsure about the prospect of taking on your own residential fence installation, be sure to contact a local fence company to see what your available options are.
