Planning your project…
Homeowners who wish to install their own Country Estate Fence and professional fence installers who have a reputation for good quality work find that most of the procedures they use with traditional fence materials are directly transferable to Country Estate Fence. Because of the versatility of Country Estate Fence Products and the varying needs of the property owners who purchase our products, there are numerous design and installation options available. Discuss these options with your Authorised Independent Country Estate dealer/installer before ordering.
Finding a good installer.
An experienced professional with proper tools makes a job look easy and he produces a quality product. He will provide you with your total cost before the project begins.
His expertise will help you with:
- Building codes and permits, plus licenses and insurance as needed. Each political sub-division establishes its own requirements so they vary widely.
- Buried utility lines can pose a danger. If you are not familiar with the “locator service” in your area, contact a utility and they will place you in touch. Most locator services will mark all buried lines to the metre—you will need to identify buried lines between any meter and your residence (including electrical, gas, water, sewer, telephone and TV cable). Errors can be very expensive and may put your fence contractor and his employees at great risk.
