The first question most owners planning to use a Mid Century Modern Fence in the winter ask is ‘can it’s done’? Our answer at All Seasons Vinyl is often a definite ‘yes’ – if it is done properly. As a budget-conscious homeowner myself, you can easily understand exactly how important it is usually to do-it-yourself.
What most contractors won’t let you know could be the trade secret to battling the frozen winter ground so you can successfully install a whole lot of needed Mid Century Modern Fence – on your own. While our experts at All Seasons Vinyl are staffed for your very intent behind assisting our customers with such issues, let me extend many ways your path – for that easy reply to the most frequent misconception: you can’t install in the winter.
This idea couldn’t be further from the truth. First, let’s comprehend the challenge that awaits you. The primary dilemma is that frozen ground pushes posts and concrete out from the ground. This makes it necessary to adjust the way you dig and fill the hole in order that it remains solid and stable. The best winter months to completely tackle this project occurs when snow blankets the floor, actually acting just like a warming blanket to keep the floor pliable. Vinyl fencing is the foremost material to use anytime of the season, as there is less compression and expansion of the fabric during installation.
Whether there is snow you aren’t, and regardless of harshness of the weather, one particular tool and a quick tip will quickly bring success to you on that DIY project. The tool to obtain may be the auger, to make the hole inside necessary shape. The key to defeating that frozen ground is to shape the hole just like a bell while it freezes, the concrete will actually push down, not up, making your posting sturdy and solid.
Further techniques such as adding gravel on the bottom for drainage before filling with concrete are standard to your post installation. For greater detail on installing your fence, visit our How To Install on our website.
