Here at Chainwire Fencing Specialist, we have a great deal of experience in designing and constructing fences for all sorts of clients. With this blog post, allow us to give you a few tips and clue you into the procedures related to designing and installing a chainwire fence, from start to finish.

Firstly, you must be aware of your property lines.

Often times, this is quite easy to figure out by simply observing landmarks, curbs and signs around your property. Other times, it might be necessary to have your property surveyed; we at Chainwire Fencing Specialist can have this arranged before we begin any work on your property.

Next, you must finalise the exact function of your gate. Does it require gates? Will you be setting the posts in concrete or putting them straight into the ground? Your fencing contractor will need to know these things so they can begin putting a precise plan together and arranging equipment and materials.

A great deal of care is required when finalising things like the aforementioned specifics because your decisions will greatly impact the amount of time you spent maintaining your fence. For example, if you decide to forgo setting the posts in concrete like we typically recommend, you may find yourself frequently having to reset the posts after wet weather or harsh activity in the case of sporting enclosures.
