So, how to build a fence system around your building, home, or residential? In this article, we will talk about some important issues that you should pay attention to. After that, we will mention the different applications and product types.
The first and most important issue about choosing and building a fence system, according to us, is working with experienced people. Because if you don’t have enough knowledge and experience about fence systems, a single tiny mistake may cause a whole failure. Fence systems, as in their nature, are linked systems and one mistake can affect the whole structure. On the other hand, we are building them to be exposed to many kinds of outside effects; like weather conditions or physical forces. So, working with professionals is always a wise decision.
Building a Fence Around Your Home
All types of fences have different processes and difficulties in installing. Wire fence mesh and grass fence systems are just a little bit easier than the others. But the concrete and metal fence posts are harder to build. So, labor costs also will be higher. If your residence or home doesn’t require high-level security, it will be non-sense to build these two systems. Further than that, if you also want to have good landscaping, grass fence system will be a perfect solution. But if you don’t, a wire fence system will be enough for you.
The first step of building a fence system around your building is the field reconnaissance. In this part;
- the dimensions of the field,
- what type of fence system will be used,
- what type of materials will be used,
- the state of land and surface
and some other technical issues are considered. After reconnaissance, we start manufacturing the materials. The customer demands will determine the interocular distance. Standard measures are 15×15. But, it is up to the customer demands and can change. After this, we manufacture the materials sensitively.
After the manufacturing process, our expert Saglam Fence construction team start installing process. If the fence system has posts, the team will dig holes into the designated spots. Then they will place the posts to the holes. And then, they install panels between these posts. Perfection is a must while installing these panels. We use special wires in order to combine these posts and panels. If the surface is not plain in the beginning, there is also extra land work before the installation process.
Which Type Should you Choose?
This is also a very important and hard decision. It is being searched very commonly. According to us, the best choice is the grass fence systems. Because this will also provide landscaping, naturality, and privacy. But if you want to have cheaper prices, a normal wire mesh system without artificial grass will be enough. But metal or concrete posts have so coarse view; so we don’t recommend using them for residential usages.
Grass fence systems are our favorite and we highly recommend them. Because it has more than one benefit that we mentioned above.
