As a substitute for wood, vinyl fences were introduced in the early 1980s and are quickly becoming the material of choice for fences due to their simple assembly, simple installation, durability, and low maintainability. Although it is not difficult to install a semi-private vinyl fence, I know how to install it. But everyone must want to know the installation method that is foolproof. After all, the vinyl fence is not so cheap. If the installation error fails, it will be very difficult. Next, I will tell you something to do and something that should not be done.

Five things to do

1. Understand the local distinction

Make sure your fence meets the requirements of the city before building a vinyl fence. It can be very troublesome if you violate the city regulations. It may be required to be demolished, or it may be required to be fined, etc., which will result in heavy losses. Of course, you also need to discuss with your neighbor how to divide the location of the fence, after all, is a public property line. It is very good to maintain a good relationship. After all, distant relatives are not as close as neighbors. Know the privacy fence you want to set in advance and they may also help you. So understand it and avoid unnecessary trouble.


2. Find places without debris

When you want to install a vinyl fence, you need to dig out where the fence needs to be installed. But before you dig holes, you need to mark where the fence needs to be placed and remove anything that is authentic. You need to be careful to walk along the perimeter to remove any plants, rocks or debris that may cause problems during the installation process. But some yards may be slopes, then you need to adapt to it. After all, not everyone's yard is flat.


3. First install the end post and corner post

First, you need to install an end post, which is your first post. Install it at the end of the vinyl fence. Then install the second column, which is your corner post. You need to attach a rope and attach the end post to the corner post. This rope can be used as a guide for you to install your fence.


4. To use the level

One of the most important tools you can use when building a vinyl fence is the level. Don't use the eye test to see if the column you planted on the ground is straight. Before laying the panel, level it twice - after the pillar is installed, after pouring the concrete.


5. Need to install a panel at a time

Once your pillar is on the ground and everything is safe, you will begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Don't hurry to go there. Install one panel at a time. After installing the panel, grab your level and make sure it is straight before proceeding to the next one. If you try to blow this step and install the next panel, you will spend more time at the end of the process, trying to level the entire fence at once.


Five things that should not be done

1. The mounting column must not be too close

Once you understand the law of building your vinyl fence, it's time to see what it will look like. To do this, it is necessary to put a stake in the corner and the end of the column. Attach the rope that connects each stake. A stake is then placed in the middle to mark the position of the stake.


2. The hole you dug must not be too shallow

Shallow holes can weaken your column and are easily blown down in strong winds, putting pressure on other panels.

When burrowing a vinyl fence, you need to be 6 inches deeper than recommended. This will leave you the space to fill the hole with gravel, which will help make your column stronger.


3. Do not treat the doorpost like a normal doorpost.

You need to dig holes in a column that is 6 inches deeper than you need. This area of the vinyl fence requires extra strength to accommodate the movement of the gate. The other half a foot of the ground will give it the power it needs.


4. Do not hammer the material directly with a hammer

A hammer must be used when installing a vinyl fence. It is almost impossible to use a hammer, but be careful. Never put the hammer directly on the fence. Direct contact with the hammer can damage the vinyl. Cracking of the top of the column during installation is a burden that needs to be addressed when installing the column head. Wood blocks soften the directness of the strike without affecting its power.


5. Vinyl fence is best not to spray paint

When you install the vinyl fence, your first reaction is to apply a stain or paint as a protection. The benefit of vinyl is that it is not necessary to do so. Vinyl is naturally waterproof. You don't have to apply a new layer of paint. You can often use strong cleaning to remove dust and dirt. Paint can even weaken the material and is therefore not recommended.


To sum up

Installing a vinyl fence is very simple. If you notice the above method, you must be able to install the semi-private vinyl fence. If you are still nervous about this process, you can come to us and find a professional staff to install your vinyl fence.
