How To Install Vinyl Fencing

By on January 16, 2015 in Home Maintainence & Remodeling

You have a nice little lawn just in front of your house, or you have a nicely done up backyard, but you can never enjoy spending some time there as you always feel that there is a lack of privacy out there. It is almost like being in an aquarium where you are being constantly watched. May be you have considered putting up a fence around the lawn so that you can have a little privacy.

But before actually investing on a fence you must understand the basics of a fence and only then you would be able to take a proper decision. First of all what material should the fence be. Then, how tall it needs to be. Next, how it can be made to look good.

Although there are many options available when it comes to choosing the material for the fencing including wood and metal, these days vinyl fencing are also gaining a lot of popularity. Initial investment is a bit more than what you will need for a wood fencing but vinyl fencing works out to be cheaper in the long run. This is commonly because of two reasons first of all, it lasts much longer than ordinary wood fencing and secondly, it requires little or no maintenance. If you plan to install the fencing by yourself you need to enlist the help of someone else. You can get a friend of yours to work with you. However, you should make it clear to him that getting a fence erected would require multiple days. Before you start installing the fence you must have a clear idea as to which areas you want to cover. With a proper plan in place, there is less of a chance for you to make any mistakes which can prove to be costly and time consuming.

One more thing that you need to remember is that before you start constructing your fence, you must sought the permission of the zoning department in your area. The zoning department would have codes that will regulate the kind of fence you can construct. It is always better to get their permission and start work rather than being stopped midway during your construction.

The height of the fence is commonly kept at six feet. But the height should be decided keeping in consideration the houses around your house. If all of them are much taller then a six feet fence would not serve the purpose. The other alternate option would be to enclose a small area rather than the entire lawn which will give you enough privacy even with a fence of a smaller height.
