You must be present at the start of the installation process to review the project plans with the local fence installers. It is also important to be present at the completion of the project so that you may complete the quality review checklist and review the maintenance requirements of your newly-installed fence.

In this video, This Old House landscape contractor Roger Cook and fencing contractor Mike McLaughlin erect a low-maintenance, long-lasting vinyl fence. Steps: 1. Stretch a string across the yard to establish the fence line. Use a line level to ensure the string is level. 2. When starting against an existing fence post or other object, dig the first fence-post hole to 32 inch deep using a manual post-hole digger. 3. Prepare the vinyl fence posts by first cutting a pressure-treated 5×5 into 24-inch-long pieces. Insert a piece of 5×5 inside the hollow vinyl post. Secure it with galvanized screws. 4. Mix water and concrete in a wheelbarrow. 5. Stand fence post in hole and fill around it with concrete. Keep the concrete 2 inches below grade. 6. Use a 4-foot level to ensure that the post is perfectly plumb. 7. Use a power auger to dig the remaining fence-post holes. 8. Connect the first fence panel to the post, then secure it with screws fitted with snap caps. 9. Continue to install posts and panels to complete the run of fencing. 10.

Important Considerations for Your Fence Before planning and purchasing your fence materials, ask yourself these questions: What will be the function of the fence? What style will best accomplish this function? What style and material will blend with my landscaping and the architecture of my home? Vinyl fencing is a relatively new, maintenance-free type of fencing. It’s available in forms similar to both wood panel and rail fencing. Vinyl fencing isn’t subject to rot, fading or other effects of weather and time as wood fencing can be. Vinyl is a good choice for an attractive, easily maintained fence system.
