How to Install a Vinyl Privacy Fence

comments (6) July 16th, 2013 in Blogs

Produced by: Justin Fink, Andy Engel, and Colin Russell

Editors Justin Fink and Andy Engel layout and set posts, and assemble new fence panels at the Fine Homebuilding Project House.

Here's what you will see in the above videos:

Episode 1.
Tape measures and strings are the main tools needed to lay out a fence. Justin and Andy show how to establish a square corner and mark the ground for fence posts.

Episode 2.
Digging holes is easier with the right tools. With Andy on the digging bar and Justin wielding the shovel, we quickly get to the bottom of things.

Episode 3.
Justin and Andy reveal some tricks about mixing concrete in a wheelbarrow, and demonstrate how to install vinyl-panel privacy fencing.

TonyPreston TonyPreston writes: Great sharing! I find that the instructions were really clear and look pretty simple to achieve. Nevertheless, when it comes to measurements, we ought to be really precise and careful so as to prevent any unwanted works which would require a rework later on. Fencing might look simple from the outside but it also needs deep rooting to prevent it from toppling due to harsh weather conditions.

I have a neighbor that is wanting help with installing his fence. However, he is putting in a wood picket fence. I was wondering if this would require different steps, or would it be just about the same process?
