Installation of fences — professional installation with your own hands (110 photos)

Your own house must be protected by all means, a fence is the best helper for this purpose. Undoubtedly, a country fence is able to provide coziness and completeness of the entire design composition. Usually this product is made of traditional materials: most often wood, less often stone (expensive), iron and other versions created by modern manufacturers.

Many people think that it is easy to install, and it will not take much time. Externally, everything looks easy, it is necessary to dig the pillars into the ground or into a cement solution, then nail the wooden slats and the installation is completed. And with other versions it is even easier, the stone fence itself is already brought almost ready-made.

But in order for everything to work out well, you need to have a lot of specific skills. Now we will understand the subtleties of this important business for every private dwelling.

It carries a practical purpose or decorative application. For some localities, there is no need for protection from intruders. Usually these are remote villages with a small number of inhabitants.

On their territory, everyone knows who is who, and everything is perfectly visible. A small wooden fence is often used, which is symbolic in nature, and helps to decorate the living space.

If we are talking about some kind of factory or housing located in an area with a dangerous criminal situation, then we will have to create a massive structure here. To install the fence, you will have to hire experienced specialists who are able to build a monolithic structure for a specific purpose.

Namely, to protect a certain territory from the encroachment of thieves, hooligans or various wild animals, whose presence there is considered inappropriate for the owners. This may be the territory of the store where there are many meat products.

And tell me why are there dogs or cats here? You can protect yourself from various birds by installing a mesh iron structure around the perimeter, covering the airspace from penetration.

What to build it from and what price to expect?

If the type of product is selected and it is clear from what material it will be made, it is necessary to think about the price. Usually the price of the fence with the installation is calculated, since no one will mount it for free.

And now let's look at the most popular materials, and how they differ, let's evaluate their positive and negative sides:

The tree is considered the most accessible for creating a fence of any complexity. But not all of its types belong to cheap and affordable options for the construction of a barrier.

But its beauty, stylishness and advantageous properties are difficult to deny, they lie in such moments:

When making a picket fence, you can count on a reasonable price. But it is distinguished by its beauty, shape, selection of the right height, and it is successfully equipped with decorative elements.

The ranch is created by mounting uncut boards, and bars fixed on powerful pillars. It is advantageous to use it to separate the agricultural territory from the rest of the zones of private housing.

Wattle refers to economical types of fences that have ease of mounting. It is created from wooden twigs, closely intertwined with each other to form a common structure. On their basis, unique fences used in rural areas are formed. The villagers loved them for their accessibility and functionality.

The fence with the help of a lattice system is formed by slats or perches. This helps to reduce the cost part for this type of product.

But, what about other materials?

Among them, too, there are excellent modifications suitable for various purposes:

Sometimes it is necessary to install a fence made of corrugated board — it can be a fence for a garage. In this case, it is important to correctly install the first sheet, and from it to do all the work.

The whole process is quite complicated, it will take a lot of tools. First of all, a drill bit for a good drill, a riveter, at least two clamps and a long construction version of the level. But such a product is not considered a reliable defender of the territory, it is referred to as conditional assistants in this matter. It is easy to overcome and can be deformed quickly.

If it was necessary to install a fence from the grid, it is recommended to contact experienced craftsmen. The work will be carried out with the use of concrete and a complex process of pulling the product on the installed poles.

Not everyone will be able to do it correctly with their own hands. And you will need a concrete mixer to create it in sufficient quantity. Such a fence is often used for fencing schools, kindergartens, and, for the most part, is decorative in nature.

Which option is suitable for the cottage?

Fences based on chain link mesh are most often used, since this is an affordable and not expensive type of material. It helps to ensure the formation of high-quality barriers for aviaries with animals. And it can fence off suburban or garden plots.

Now many are interested in fences for cottages, the price with installation, because not everyone has the opportunity to invest a lot. Most often, a galvanized modification of the mesh is chosen for the construction of the fence. It is outwardly beautiful, has anti-corrosion characteristics and has a favorable price.

The fence formed from it easily copes with various precipitation, strong wind or exposure to high temperatures characteristic of the summer period of the year. And it perfectly passes the rays of the sun, which is considered a necessary condition for the proper development of plants. Sometimes they wrap around her and this helps their stability, and also looks very beautiful.

But the work on installing a fence of this type is characterized by certain difficulties. We will have to use concrete to fill the pillars, then to fix it on their basis. But in general, it reliably protects the territory from unauthorized unauthorized visitors.

For this purpose, an additional grid barrage line can be created from above at an angle. This will help to provide additional reliability. It is believed that in this case it is easier to overcome concrete, metal or other fences.

In addition, it is durable, does not require special supervision, but sometimes it is necessary to replace individual parts or repair them. It is advantageous to paint only the pillars, and the grid itself should already have painting or you can leave it in its original form.

The installation process by the hands of masters is carried out quite quickly. But its duration will depend on the area of work performed. It can be stretched or installed in sections. The latter option is used for school territories, kindergartens and parking lots.

And it is advantageous to perform tension precisely for the cottage. The most important thing is to properly install the fence posts, and from them to create the rest of the structure.

Reinforced concrete fences

Many people think that the installation of a concrete fence is characterized by very complex installation work. This is partly true, but now many have learned to do them with their own hands.

Usually the fence is formed not just of concrete, but with the addition of a steel frame. The result is a reinforced concrete structure, characterized by strength, durability and incredible functionality.

More often, such structures are used to fence various protected areas. These can be sites where construction works are taking place, production is underway (factories, factories), parking lots. But now such fences have also been used for private homes.

But for their own purposes, a decorative version of this product is usually installed, which is distinguished by beauty. But for the others listed above, large plates with barbed wire are installed along the top. They differ in height and incredible strength, so that they are very difficult to overcome.

If you install it yourself, then you need to consider one important point. The usual section weighs about 70 kg, but the process of its installation is quite simplified. Because of the weight, you can attract another person from among friends or relatives to do the work.
