What are the steps for a fence installation?

You’ve determined it’s time for a fence installation and chose the right fence installer for the job. Now what? Well, the experts at Hercules Custom Iron will handle most of the details. However, you can do some tasks to prepare for this process as a homeowner. Here are several insights from the professionals that can help prevent those surprises on installation day.

Clear Out Everything

For us to receive a clear project scope, we must be able to see everything. Landscaping, grading, and other fences will affect the layout, so it’s critical to have a good view up front. If you can also eliminate any problem areas or excess foliage before we arrive, we can quickly and easily complete a fence installation!

In addition, we love dogs, but we know not all of them love people. They can be distracting regarding installation, so please keep them in a safe space for the duration. The same goes for adult and children’s toys. Additionally, any bikes, tools, balls, and heavy equipment that can be put away will assist us in moving materials quicker and reduce your fence installation costs. So, help us help you with your installation! 

Don’t Hesitate to Ask Questions

Communication is essential for a smooth fence installation day, so ask many questions as you can beforehand. If you believe you have an easement, let us know so we can work around it. Also, if you need a permit for your fence height, will we apply for those, or do you? Moreover, our team might recommend a specific style to mask the steps regarding how much slope we’re dealing with.

Don’t forget to ask about any warranties or hardware we’re using. Talk to us about your timeline too. Find out the project’s duration and what your maintenance schedule looks like. Remember, some materials do require more maintenance than others, so make sure to ask about our low-maintenance options.

Make Yourself Accessible

Make yourself and your property accessible for a smooth fence installation. While you don’t necessarily have to be present on-site during the installation, some homeowners prefer to do that. However, please leave your gate unlocked because we need access to your yard.

Now that you know what to expect, Hercules Custom Iron looks forward to collaborating with you on your next fencing project! Call us for a fence installation!
