Common Mistakes People Make Regarding a Pine Fence
A wooden fence is only functional if installed by a professional contractor who has accumulated a wealth of experience in the field. However, you must be aware of errors that can occur so that you’re well placed to ask your contractor relevant questions about the installation.
As with anything, the foundation is critical to the success of the installation. People often get their pole placement wrong which inevitably affects the durability of the fence. Fence posts should be treated to withstand various elements underground. Preparing the ground for the poles is essential as you need to fit one-third of the pole below the surface for sturdiness.
Selecting any type of wood is a huge mistake and can result in your fence collapsing over time. Be wary of the effects the climate has on wood. Some types of wood don’t react well to moisture; therefore, it begins to crumble after being exposed to harsh conditions.
Whenever there is a fenced-off area, you require a gate to pass through. Consider the location of the gate in the fencing to allow you access to other parts of your yard.
