When it comes to fence installation, many individuals in St. Petersburg want to go the DIY route. Professionals are a great way to get the job done quickly, expertly, and successfully, but many residents like to be hands-on and are excited by a new home improvement project. If you choose to do it yourself, here are three tips and tricks to keep in mind.
1. Measure Once, Measure Twice, and Measure Again
The mistake we see time and time again with DIY fence installation projects is that people measure incorrectly. Even worse, they measure one time and cut panels, resulting in wasted materials and supplies. To prevent this, we recommend measuring three times before cutting, just to be on the safe side.
2. Use Quick-setting Concrete for Fence Installation
When you have everything trimmed, aligned, and holes dug up, you are ready to set the fencing. This requires a secure, lasting bond so that wind, rain, or hurricanes in St. Petersburg don’t knock it over. Many professionals use concrete because of its hardening properties, but if you go this route, use the quick-setting kind. You won’t want to be standing around holding each post for hours or trying to prop them up and prevent them from falling over while it dries. To eliminate this issue, quick-setting bonds will move things along.
