What to Expect During Your Fence Installation

You’re itching for a new fence installation. You want the beautiful design to border your front or backyard, giving it privacy and border safe for your children and pets to roam without worry. However, you have no idea about the fence installation process.

Well, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s everything you need to know about fence installation!

Choosing a Fence

The first step in the process is to study the options and designs that best fit your situation. Here’s a brief list of KNO Woodworks fence styles:

Privacy Fence

A privacy fence is best for you when you want to separate yourself from the rest of the outside world! Typically standing around six feet tall, a privacy fence will give you maximum privacy and added security. You are not limited to having just high parts in your privacy fence.

A great thing to know about privacy fences is the ability to shorten the height of the fence if you want a better view or already have trees that block that section!

Picket Fence

Picket fences are perfect for front yard installation, boosting curb appeal while tightly bordering off your front yard. However, just because your yard is now bordered off, picket fences are great for neighborhood relations as you can exchange pleasantries as they pass by!

Horizontal Fence

A horizontal fence is excellent for boosting security while allowing you to keep the view in your backyard. Horizontal fences are popular in many neighborhoods for a modern and clean look that increases your property value.

Hog Wire Fence

A hog wire fence lets you border off a specific area, like a garden, while allowing the sun to soak through. There are plenty of building benefits to hog wire fences, such as affordable cost and ease of installation.

Craftsman Fence

Crafted with a variety of wood and styled with interwoven boards, the lattice fence is the most luxurious design KNO Woodworks have to offer! Whatever you desire for your custom design, we have what it takes to get the job done.

Adhering to Zoning Rules

One thing to remember is that fence installation is under your city’s specific zoning rules. Height, design, and fence color are taken into consideration when it comes to zoning for your neighborhood. Additionally, you may be subject to other zoning codes if you're part of a homeowners association.

Post Placement

Now that you’ve figured out what fence style best fits your situation and adheres to local zoning codes, it’s time to install! Once the post holes are dug, and fence posts are put into place, your fence is professionally installed. Each type of fence presents several different installation processes, but it should only take a day or two to finish.

Final Examination

KNO Woodworks prides itself on craftsmanship and attention to detail. After installation, we will inspect every square foot of your fence for quality assurance. If there are any issues with your installation, we will resolve them thoroughly before leaving!


For the most extended lifespan, a wood fence should be inspected for water or storm damage at least once or twice a year. To keep your wood fence pristine, you will want to repaint it every two or three years and restain it every five to six years. Painting and staining also help preserve the wood against the elements.
