Should I Install My Fence?

April 13, 2023

Proper installation of a fence

Are you thinking about installing a fence yourself? We should tell you at the outset; installing a fence is one of the most significant “do-it-yourself” (DIY) backyard projects that you will ever attempt to tackle as a homeowner. You’re probably thinking, “I will do it myself, how hard can it be, right?” The idea here is that by doing it yourself, you’re going to save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.

But what people fail to realize is the significant amount of time that is required to install a fence properly. A project of this magnitude might take you weeks, even months, when most local fence companies can complete the project in 1-2 days, depending on the size of the yard. Not to mention, you are going to have to enlist the help of friends, family, maybe even neighbors to be able to complete this project in a reasonable amount of time.

While installing a fence is not rocket science by any means, there are still best practices and industry-standard methods that need to be used to make sure your fence will last the test of time. From ordering the right materials, setting posts in concrete, to putting the finishing touches on your new fence, there are plenty of things that can go wrong. When problems do arise during the fence installation process, this inevitably leads to more time and money invested in your project.

After installing thousands of fences in the greater Chicagoland area over the last few decades, we can tell you with certainty that most homeowners prefer to have professional fence companies install fences on their behalf, as opposed to doing the project themselves. While you might be able to save some money doing it yourself, it is not a project for the faint of heart. Most homeowners that install a fence vow never to install another fence again. We recommend that if you are in the market for a new fence, that its a better idea to hand the project off to a professional.

With a quick online search, you will see that there are dozens of local fence companies that you can hire to install your next fence. We would recommend, however, that you hire an “actual” fence company, as opposed to a landscaping contractor or local handyman. With so many different fence companies competing for your business, and with the arrival of online public reviews from companies like Google, Yelp, and Facebook, it may be harder than you think to choose the right fence company.
