DIY Fencing 101: A Beginners Guide to Buying a Fence.

Building your own fence can be a personally and financially rewarding home improvement project for the do-it-yourselfer. Its hard to beat the sense of accomplishment that comes from being able walk outside every day and see the beautiful creation that sprung from your ideas and a little hard work. The problem is, many homeowners don't know where to begin when it comes to: choosing a type of fence, buying the right materials, and planning for installation. You could spend hours searching the web, trying to put together some form of coherent tutorial from the snippets of information available, but that just leads to frustration and a desire to give up.

We built this Beginner DIY Fencing Guide as a short, illustrative tutorial of basic fence information. It is designed specifically for homeowners that want to learn just enough to be able to make an informed buying decision, without having to become a "fence expert". If you have bought and/or installed a fence in the past, you may find that this guide is too basic for your needs, in which case we invite you to check out the other tutorials in our Fence Buying Guide section. If, however, this is your first experience with fencing, then you have come to the right place.

If you read this guide and you have additional questions, email us at info@signetfence.com and we will be happy to help you find an answer.

We try to constantly update our DIY Fence Buying Guide based on the questions that our customers ask, so you may end up helping our entire fencing community.
