Build and Maintain Chain Link Fence


After much back and forth, you finally decided to build a new chain link fence. If you wanted to be smart then follow these steps.  


The most important thing, of course, is: "What tools and materials do you need to build a wrought iron gates?"


wrought iron gatesAt the beginning of each fence is the consideration: "Where should the fence go?" First, you should pay attention to exactly the property boundaries. Usually, measuring points are misplaced or there is already a fence that needs to be renewed.


In order to stay in line, it is advisable to hit 2 pegs (1/2 to 1 m from the beginning or end) into the ground and connect them with a string. Then just the earth picking on the knitting means and the planning is done.

Where should the foundations go?


Next, mark the holes for the foundations. These should be between 2.5m and 3m apart. Calculate the distance best based on the length of the fence and the number of posts, which is the ideal distance. Not that you end up with a 20 cm piece of fence.


At the end posts and early post you also need a strut attach a 45 ° angle. These also require foundations. For large fence areas, also use 2 columns for the middle column.


Tip: Distance from foundation to strut = fence height. (At 1.50 m fence = 1.50 m distance). Prick the lawn with about 10cm of earth to use it again. Once the holes are marked, lift the foundations at least half a meter deep. Use a shaft spade and a small shovel or a bur. The holes should be between 30 and 40 cm in diameter. (Just below the line average).


Make sure that the foundations at the bottom have the same diameter as above and of course the same depth; otherwise the posts will have different heights. Once all the holes have been excavated, the concrete can be mixed.


Make the cement

The ideal ratio when mixing cement does not exist. Usually a healthy sense of proportion is required. But you cannot go wrong with foundations. As a rule of thumb: for foundations cement to sand in a ratio of 1 to 6 and for plaster work 1 to 3. If you use a tub, make your job easier with a mortar stirrer. Either put cement and sand in a big tub or lay a blueprint on the grass or slabs to protect them and pour on both.


If you find all these too trick then just contact with the Chain link fence contractor, he or she will do all for you.
