Process We Follow for Post and Rail Fencing

Site Evaluation and Planning

The first step our team takes is a thorough evaluation of your property to understand your needs, explore layout options, take measurements, identify any relevant factors about the landscape or existing structures, and formulate a customized fencing plan optimized for functionality and aesthetics. Proper planning is crucial to building you a beautiful, long-lasting post and rail fence.

Material Selection

We only use the best wood and hardware materials for crafting durable, great-looking post and rail fences built to last for decades. We use graded, rot-resistant Western Red Cedar posts and rails along with reinforced posts and galvanized steel brackets and hardware selected for superior structural integrity, weather-resistance, and long term performance.

Fence Design Finalization

Once we’ve explored options during our site visit, we will present you with a 3D design rendering and proposal for your review and approval prior to starting work.

This allows you to visualize how your new post and rail fence will look on your property before building commences. We welcome any suggestions to revise the design until it meets your expectations.

Permitting and Surveying

We handle permitting paperwork on your behalf and coordinate any required permitting inspections by local building codes offices. We also work with surveyors to clearly mark property lines if needed to place your post and rail fence properly within your lot boundaries. This protects you from any boundary or permit issues down the road.

Post Hole Digging and Installation

We dig precise post holes using an auger digger mounted on our truck for efficient excavation while minimizing landscape disruption. Posts are set in concrete within the holes and reinforced for maximum structural integrity. For proper fence strength, we space posts between 8 to 10 feet apart based on fence height and other factors.

Rail and Bracket Installation

The fence rails are fastened securely to the installed posts using galvanized steel brackets and hardware designed specifically for fencing. Depending on design choice, rails may be installed vertically, horizontally, or diagonally in patterns optimized for an attractive finish and long term durability.

Gate Installation

Gates can be integrated seamlessly into the post and rail fencing for driveway access, animal pens, pool fences, and other applications. We install sturdy post and rail gates built with steel reinforcements for added longevity using galvanized hinges and latches.

Finishing Touches

The final step is a complete walkthrough to inspect the finished fence, double check alignments, remove any debris from the work site, and address any remaining client questions. We also provide documentation of permits and warranty information for your records.
