It doesn’t seem like there should be all that much to installing your own cedar fence. Its just setting the post, frame it and start screwing on the pickets right? Or maybe hiring the local cheaper handyman to install your fence would be the most cost effective way but there is a lot more to it than one might think or even a handyman might think! The reason I know? Bockman Group Fencing Company does this work professionally and we do it the right way. We continually bid projects that require removal of the old fence that might only be 3-5 years old! Talk about a money losing project. One of the things we see a lot of is the post are only concreted in on the top 1/4 of the post hole. We call this a pancake. The picture above is the result of a pancake post set. The wind eventually wins this battle. Another thing we see a lot of of top twist. This is where the top of the pickets start to twist and split because of the way it was framed. We have a method to totally prevent this but I can’t tell you how because it’s a trade secret!
The point is Bockman Group Fencing company knows exactly how to install your new cedar fence and we know how to make it last the full lifetime of the materials. Saving money on cheap materials or the handyman could in the end cost you much more than you can even imagine. We just did a bid for a lady and she is so scared of getting sued by her HOA she doesn’t know what to do. A lawsuit filed by and HOA because a fence was installed incorrectly will result in the fines and getting the fence up to code. This is a extremely expensive double hit that could have been prevented by spending a little more and getting it done right the first time.
