Aluminum Fences | The iFence Guide to a Successful Project
Measure Your Yard
Measure the outline of your fence. Always round up to the nearest foot to avoid running short on materials. Pay close attention to your grade. Is there a slope? How severe? Each style has specifications indicating how much a panel can rack (adjust) for installation on a grade slope. When the grade slope is steep, Xtra-Rack™ or Max-Rack™ adjustable panels are designed to negotiate the grade and are available at no extra cost. Certain styles, however, do not adjust at all. Our style specifications will indicate when this is the case. It is very important to note that it is your responsibility to make us aware of the grade slope of your yard. We want you to receive the proper materials for your project!
Make A Drawing
When you have finished measuring, make a simple, but neat, drawing like the provided example. Your measurements should be clearly noted so that fence panels, posts and gate materials can be determined. Fence panels come in standard six foot sections, but can be ordered in variable widths, or they can be trimmed to fit on-site. Standard Single gates are sized for four-foot openings. Double gates are sized for ten-foot openings, but they, too, can be ordered in variable custom sizes within a range.
