Installation Process

Before building a fence, determine whether or not you need a permit to proceed. Also, identify if there are restrictions on height. Some fence limits include restrictions to 6 or 8 feet tall. The material will play a huge role in the fence’s longevity. Treated cedar for example can last up to 40 years if properly installed and maintained.

1. Plan Your Fence

Plan out your fence by determining whether you need a permit or if there are height restrictions. Next is determining your property line and how your fence will be erected in relation to that. To avoid any future disputes with your neighbors, review your plans with them. This can save a lot of headaches.

2. Measure Out The Fence Posts

Our fence crew then marks the outline of your proposed fence line with spray paint. Then, we will measure the outline of your perimeter with a measuring wheel. At this point, we will position your fence posts on the fence line every 6 or 8 feet.

3. Dig Holes

The expert fence installers at Northern Fence will then dig holes with a post hole digger below the frost line; this is especially important for colder climates like Wisconsin to offer the most support. We are careful to avoid any utility lines or pipes while we work.

4. Add Concrete and Gravel and Position Posts

After the holes are dug out, we will pour 3 to 4 inches of gravel for drainage and 6 to 8 inches of concrete mix. We then position the pole in the middle of the hole, making sure the mix is sloped away from the post.

5. Attach Rails/Panels to Posts

After the concrete has dried, we attach the rails or panels to the posts. We then secure the rails in properly with either 2.5 inch deck screws or galvanized 10d x 3 inch nails. We save time by using tools like a power drill or claw hammer.

6. Attach Pickets to Rails

Now it is time to begin attaching the pickets to the rails that were just installed. Once again, the team at Northern Fence uses the proper screws and nails to secure the pickets.

7. Attach Post Caps

If you opted to use post caps for your fence we install them on each post using a rubber mallet. We line them up and begin lightly tapping them down until they are snug.

8. Stain or Treat Wood

After building the fence, the wood must be treated with paint, satin or weather-proofing finish. We apply wood preservative at the base posts to prevent rotting. Apply new coats every 2 to 3 years.

Our Reviews

The crew replaced a section of fence, installed a new gate, and put in support posts where needed - they did a fantastic job! I am very happy with the quality of their work and friendly service. Highly recommend and will be having them back next year to do the other gate.

Mychele responded and they are very helpful. We will wait until spring for a chain in fencing. COVID is putting a change in many plans this year.

We can HIGHLY recommend Northern Fence. They were incredibly professional and did what they could to find out property lines in a pinch. The installers were incredibly nice as well. It was super hot weather while they were installing so we supplied a cooler of water for them!! They were so appreciative!After the install, we noticed a couple boards had some issues. Right after I sent the email to Matt, I had a response that they would come back Monday to replace; which they did!!Incredible customer service!! Hands down the best. We are very glad we went with them.

Rough start as they were extremely busy but once we got our fence installed it is great. Looks good too. Our dog loves to be able to run now. The crew who did installation were very professional and pleasant to work with.

We had several quotes for a new fence and they were very reasonably priced and professional. Job was completed in one day and when we had one small issue they came back right away to fix it for us. We have nothing but good things to say regarding Northern Fence!

I can't say enough good things about Northern Fence. We had some questionable neighbors move in next door and we decided to build a privacy fence. Northern Fence was quick to give us a quote, quick to put us on the schedule and the guys that built the fence were fast. I checked other companies in the area and Northern Fence was by far the best deal. I highly recommend them if you want a job well done.

Our fence project turned out great! From the bidding process to the finished product, working with Northern Fence was an easy, positive experience. Small company, nice people. Because the project got pushed back a couple of times I almost gave them a four star rating instead of five. But the delay was due to weather - can hardly blame Northern for that!

Northern Fence did a great job. Came out for an estimate, got a quote, and had the job don all in a matter of 2 months. I called to get the ball rolling on this mid-season and figured there would be no way it would get done that quick. Very pleased with final product.

Northern Fence was awesome to work with. Matt took the time to not only answer my questions but educate me on what my fencing options were. They had patience when we were dealing with some property line issues with the neighbor and were flexible with setting my appointment.I really appreciated their no nonsense approach and the fence looks great - thanks guys !!!

Matt and the team were great to work with - they are always very busy this time of year and I know they respond as soon as they are able. They installed 72 feet of cedar fence and was done in just a few hours and looks great. Good work for a good price.

Contracted with Northern Fence to put in black vinyl coated fencing around our back yard to let our new puppy have room to run around. I was provided a very competitive bid fairly quick, but the weather pushed the project back. But once scheduled, it was done in less than a day and it looks fantastic. I would use them again.

They did an awesome job on our red western cedar privacy fence over a decade ago. It still looks awesome. Metal galvanized poles are the way to go. Their craftsmanship is TOP NOTCH.

Although I had to wait a few days longer than expected (weather not the company's fault), the guys were able to install the whole fence within a morning. They were very courteous and clean (I have not found a scrap of garbage in my yard). I am very pleased with how it turned out and my dogs love the new freedom in their yard.

Although we had to wait a little longer than expected for our fence to be put up, we were thrilled with the results. (Fence was actually built on July 4th!) Thanks, guys, for working on a holiday and for keeping us in the loop regarding the delays. Beautiful, well-built fence...worth the wait! Dunkin loves his new freedom!
