Ram Construction is proud to feature a wonderful and unique project with creating a fence for privacy and to increase curb appeal. The Challenge is unique in that the materials and design are custom built, this fence project is one of a kind.
We first had to consider the hurdle of the land layout. The change in elevation on the landscape created. The decision to move forward with a segmented joining of fence that would change to adjust to the drop and raising of the land. Each segment had to be custom and joined as one visual unit.
One of the trickiest installations is when you have a change in elevation. If you have to step the fence, set one section at one height and keep moving up as you go along. If you're going uphill or downhill, you'll need to account for this and do it in full increments or half-feet.
NEXT, all the proper permits were acquired. Designing the concept, considering use of material. We chose to go with a sharp contrast of metal contrasted by the natural beauty of wood. Accents with Metal hinges, door stops and holders were spread throughout the design.
Did you know, If you have a pressure-treated gate, which can be very heavy (and when it rains, the wood absorbs water and gets even heavier), you must set the posts much deeper and with more cement around them. In short: make sure the hinges are properly sized to hold enough weight.
We also considered both sides of the fence. It's important to realize that the nice side of the fence needs to face the neighbors, and the integrity side, with the wood rails and everything else, is going to face the inside. If the nice side faces your house, there could be hard feelings.
Some fences are for keeping things in or out, and some are for privacy. Fences are also great for decorating your front and back yard to accent your home and to indicate property lines. With so many different types of fences out there, you just to need to know your needs and your taste and build one that will last you and your family a long time. Ram Specifically chose to use Cedar for its wood accent and structure material. Custom corrugated metal would fill the visual space and add to the over all unique appeal.
