It’s surprising what a few home improvements can do. Fencing the deck, painting the walls, or taking on a new DIY project in the yard-they all add value. At Fence Supply Online we know that DIY projects also make you feel good, and that sense of achievement is certainly one way to put a smile on your face.
Fencing your deck can be a big project, but if you approach it correctly, you will have an elegant fence in place for the summer barbecue. As in all DIY projects the detail is in the planning, and knowing what you are doing before you begin is half the battle.
One of our regular customers called recently. She was thinking of fencing the deck area and wanted a few ideas.
“Well Patty,” said our expert, “there are a few guidelines to follow to get this project done properly.”
“What should I do?” was the next question.
Luckily this wasn’t the first time a caller asked about deck fencing and our expert was able to help Patty straight off the bat.
Our list of guidelines for fencing your deck includes:
Draw up a plan
Use vinyl for fencing your deck
Installing is easy – when you know how
Add lighting to the deck fencing
Let’s take a closer look at each point on the list.
Draw up a plan
Failing to plan is like planning to fail, so a wise man, or more than likely a woman, once said to me.
The saying is worth remembering and following.
Take a look at your deck and decide on the style of fence you would like on it.
Measure the deck and think about height and make sure you do not block any views of the sunset.
You will need tools, so make sure the toolbox is full and all batteries are on charge.
