Our crew at Fence Masters is all about saving money and tackling do-it-yourself projects! But installing a new fence in any material is not something that should be taken on without the expertise and knowledge of the industry. Here we look at what can go wrong if you try to install your new fence without the expertise of a professional team.

The Right Tools: While you may have a lot of the tools that are necessary to install a new fence, you may be lacking some and not have access to them. That leaves you needing to purchase new items that you may not need or use again. If you are spending money on tools, how are you saving money on a project? Larger and expensive tools that are needed include: a post hole digger, batter boards, nail gun and level. If you have to remove an old fence first, you have to put in the time to do this and dispose of the pieces properly on your own. 

The Proper Permits: Depending on where you live, a new fence project could require certain types of permits. At Fence Masters, we will help with this and make sure that your project is legal and meets all of the required local laws. You do not want to face a fine for not properly launching your fence project by yourself. 

The Safety Zone: Any type of project that is using tools and digging into the ground can be dangerous. You want to have a team working that understands the dangers of the project. Our Fence Masters employees are licensed, bonded and insured for your peace of mind. They are knowledgeable about how to handle all of the necessary tools in a secure manner, so that your family and neighbors remain safe throughout the project.

The Project Timeline: DIY projects are often squeezed in on the weekends or before or after your workday. That is why a seemingly simple project can take way longer than expected. We can turn around your fence installation quickly as we keep our stockyard full and our team will put in the work all day. As we have the experience, we also have the process down in an efficient manner.

The Essential Expertise: While we can all be good at some things, we are not good at everything, and that is especially true when it comes to specialized construction skills. As a DIY installer, you cannot match our team’s time on construction sites as we have been around for decades. We have had the honor of installing thousands and thousands of fences and being in business for 40 years.
