Does the Weather Affect the Installation?

The concrete will be in the wet condition and as a result, fence installation around your property will not be properly. Moreover, if the temperature is too low or too high, it will create contraction or swelling in the fence materials. Therefore, a warm day will be an ideal option for the fence installation.

How Tall Should My Fence Be?

We deliver a wide range of fence materials. Different fence can have different height. Now, the entire matter depends upon the customer’s requirement. If the customer wants to prevent abductions of child and pets, customers can go with fences that have a small height. For example, a fence having 4ft. of height will be ideal in such a situation. On the other side, if the customer wants to install it in the basketball or tennis court, the fence must be tall. Otherwise, it will not be able to block the basketballs or tennis balls and the audience will have to compromise with safety.

Should the Fence Touch the Ground?

Generally, fence materials should not touch the ground as it has several negative aspects. First of all, if the fence materials are adhered to the ground, it will catch moisture from the soil and therefore, you cannot have it for the long run. Your fence will have moisture damage and so, you have to spend a good amount of money for the replacement. But, there are cases where fence materials touch the ground. The entire thing depends upon the customer’s requirements. If the customer wants to stop small animals and rodents entering into the garden area, the fence can be installed in such a way so that there will be no gap between ground and fence. Moreover, if you have small pets and want to prevent abductions, you should have your fence touch the ground.
