Even though a backyard may appear level it is likely that adjustments need to be made to make a fence to apper level when the ground is not. It does help to have a professional installer do the work because they know what to look for.
Ron takes a look at how an explosion at the Escanaba Power Plant substation damaged a fence that was not properly grounded and the steps being taken to properly ground the new fence being installed at the substation.

We are working on a wooden fence job. It's a four foot tall privacy-type fence. It's just for keeping some kids in and some dogs in but it's a solid four foot tall fence, all cedar except for the posts. We use treated posts. Basically, we are going around the guy's front yard.
This video is primarily focused on how to clean vinyl fences, in this case, our line of Certainteed Bufftech Vinyl Fences. The simple solution talked about in the video was sourced from Bufftech's Care & Maintenance instructions which you can also find on our website along with specific instructions on cleaning other types of fence as well. Be sure to take extra care when cleaning fences with a power washer. Vinyl fences have the potential to crack and shatter when faced with high pressure. Excessive pressure could cause wooden fences to break apart and splinter. Ornamental fences may experience paint chipping if the pressure is too high as well. If you notice that your fence is not coming clean, do not increase the water pressure, rather seek a mildew remover from your local convenience store. Here is the simple solution: - 1/3 cup of detergent (ex. Tide) - 2/3 cup of trisodium phosphate (TSP) (ex. Soilax) - 1 quart of 5% sodium hypochlorite (ex. Clorox) - 3 quarts of water One thing to pay close attention to is signs of artillery fungus. Typically found in mulch, artillery fungus can wreak havoc on solid surfaces like fences, siding, decks, and other solid structures. The fungus explodes causing small dark colored specs to attach to surrounding surfaces. If you notice this on your fences or surrounding structures, be sure to wash it sooner rather than later since it can cause permanent discoloration. Adam, suggested using bagged mulch to help fend off this issue or use alternatives such as decorative rocks.

This is a video testimonial done by the production manager, Sam Reese, at Upper Hand Brewery in Escanaba, MI. Here we have three separate commercial installations. Our first installation as you will see is a 10' tall security barbed wire chainlink fence. The second installation was the ornamental fence just outside of their taproom which allowed their customers to enjoy an ice cold drink outside. Our most recent installation was a 6' chainlink fence that was put up to become compliant with their CO2 supplier. Sam, was great to work with during each project. We were happy to help fortify their company's assets, expand their seating outdoors, and become compliant with their suppliers.
