There are many different fence types to install.

What could be better than installing a fence yourself? The satisfaction of doing the install, standing back, and looking at the completed work is the best part of any DIY project. Another great extra is that are so many fence types you can install yourself. Installing a fence does not take a long time, and it is a great way to spend the weekend.

At Fence Supply Online, we love to help with fence installs and to advise DIYers on the best ways to improve a project. The easier fence types make the work simpler and will encourage you to try out new styles later.

We put our heads together recently to think of ways to make DIY more attractive to our customers. After a lot of talking and plenty of coffee, we came up with a little list. Some examples are for the experienced DIYer, while others are more for the newbies.

Included on the list of fence types to install yourself are:

  • The vinyl picket fence is a good place to start
  • Try the vinyl privacy fence
  • Our ornamental iron fence for the experienced hand

Let’s take a closer look at each fence on the list.

The vinyl picket fence is a good place to start

The picket fence is an American classic.

You will see them in countless movies, TV shows, and family photographs. There is not a better place to talk to the neighbors than across the picket fence on a summer’s day.

Vinyl is a material that is light, though durable, and is very easy to work with on your own. The vinyl picket fence is very popular with DIY enthusiasts.

You can install the posts over a few hours and then just slot the vinyl picket panels into place along the line of the fence. The fence comes in flatpack form, and you just slide a panel off the top as you work.

Modern vinyl is low-maintenance, robust, and comes in a variety of colors and styles.

Try the vinyl privacy fence

Another popular fence style with the DIYer, which you will find very easy to work with on your own.

Vinyl privacy fences come in a variety of colors, styles, heights, and designs. The modern material gives you a product you can rely on and get value for your investment. When you need privacy around the pool, the backyard, or protection from the wind, then look at our selection.

At Fence Supply Online we stock BLACKline privacy fencing products. The black vinyl will not fade, chalk, buckle or flake under the summer sun. You will have the same black fence in place next summer as you did when you installed it this spring.

Vinyl is so easy to work with, and you only need to purchase one extra tool-the vinyl notching tool.

Our ornamental iron fencing for the experienced hand

Iron fencing gives you security but also a beautiful, stylish fence on the property.

Many people shy away from the ornamental iron fencing as they think it is difficult to install by yourself.

The truth is that modern iron fencing is a DIY person’s dream product. Our fencing is light enough to work with on your own, and our bracket system makes it simple to install. You install the fence posts, which do take time but need not take too long. The brackets fit around the post, and you use the nut and bolt system to secure each panel.

Working with ornamental iron fencing may take a bit of experience, but it is still easy to install.
