How Soon Can You Install My Fence?

Time taken for the installation of a particular type of fence depends on several factors. The type of fence that a customer wants to be installed and the time of the season when it is purchased are two of the many factors that can adversely affect the time frame of fence installation.
Material fabrication and the permits required for the project does take almost around five to six weeks to get ready. On the other hand, projects that don’t require any material fabrication or permits can be started just within a time frame of about two to four weeks. However, in peak seasons, a project might take almost around 8+ weeks to get going. We, at The Fence Company Of Detroit, always believe in transparency with the cost and the expected starting dates.

How Deep Should My Fence Posts Be?

Answer to the exact depth of the fence post is really very difficult to say. The exact depth of the fence post varies almost all times and it completely depends on the overall length and height of the fence. In general, 3 feet is observed to be an ideal depth and it can even be deeper in case of a tall fence. The holes made must be wide by a few inches than the posts in order to place the concrete that can help in supporting the posts. Therefore, the exact dimensions will be completely dependent on the fence height and the fence materials. These factors are especially important for posts that will be supporting a gate because there might be a need to install an additional support post along with the main post such that the concrete can hold both the posts in one place.

Should the Fence Touch the Ground?

In almost all cases, only the fence posts are the one that touches the ground, no other fencing materials should ever touch the earth by any means. Other than the fence post, if anything else touches the ground, it thereby makes the yard maintenance a very difficult task. Other than this, it may also make the fence materials to get damaged by moisture or catch rust depending on its type. If you are planning to install fences to keep away rodents, rats or other insects from entering your garden area, in that case, you can make your fence touch the floor or the ground.
