What to Expect During Your WOOD Fence Installation


The first step in the wood fence installation process is getting an estimate. An estimator will visit your property when you are available and will measure the property. During this visit, the estimator will take measurements of the precise area you wish to fence and discuss fencing options and features like materials and gates.


Once you and the estimator agree on a fence that fits your needs, the preliminary work can begin. The fence company will write up a contract, obtain materials, and check for issues with existing utility lines. Depending on where you live in the Columbus area, you may also need to check if any permits need to be pulled before construction commences.


The first step in the actual physical process of fence installation is drilling holes for the posts. Done correctly this will ensure a durable and well spaced fence. Once the posts are ready a crew will come in and begin installing the fence. Your fence contractor will secure whichever fence material you chose to the posts with quality hardware. This part of the fence installation proceeds quickly.


Once the fence is completed you can sit back and enjoy your new fence and the peace of mind that comes with a durable and secure fence lining your property.
