The first question most householders planning to use a Faux Bamboo Fence in winter ask is ‘can or not it’s done’? Our answer at All Seasons Vinyl can be a definite ‘yes’ – if it’s done correctly. As a budget-conscious homeowner myself, it is possible to understand exactly how important it is usually to do-it-yourself.
What most contractors won’t inform you is trade secret to battling the frozen winter ground to help you successfully install a whole lot of needed Faux Bamboo Fence – all on your own. While our experts at All Seasons Vinyl are staffed to the very function of assisting our customers with your issues, allow me to extend some suggestions your path – to the easy solution to the most typical misconception: you can’t install in winter.
This idea couldn’t be further from the truth. First, let’s see the challenge that awaits you. The primary issue is that frozen ground pushes posts and concrete from the ground. This makes it vital to adjust how we dig and fill the hole so it remains solid and stable. The best winter months to completely tackle this project occurs when snow blankets the bottom, actually acting like a warming blanket to help keep the bottom pliable. Vinyl fencing is the best material to use without notice of the season, as there is less compression and expansion of the pad during installation.
Whether there exists snow or otherwise, and regardless of harshness of weather, one simple tool and an instant tip will begin to bring success for your requirements on that DIY project. The tool to get will be the auger, to make the hole in the necessary shape. The key to defeating that frozen ground is always to shape the hole like a bell when it freezes, the concrete would really push down, not up, making this post sturdy and solid.
Further techniques like adding gravel to the bottom for drainage prior to filling with concrete are standard to the post installation. For greater detail on installing your fence, visit our How To Install on our website.
