Q: What tools do I need to install my own fence?
I want to install a fence around my property and I would like to do it myself. However, I am not sure what tools a job like this entails. Are there any tips that anyone can give me for installation and tools?
A: Depends on the type of fence:
The type of fence really determines the tools you will need. Basic tools you will need include:
Post Hole Diggers (I recommend renting a gas powered auger to make this part easier)
100' Tape measure
Level (I use a 2' or 4' level depending on the height of the fence)
Wheel Barrel (mixing concrete)
Then there are specific tools you may need like air compressor/nail gun for wood fences, circular saw for wood fences, sawzall for aluminum fences, and more depending on the fences. Oh yeah, if you a chain link fence, you will need fence pliers, spreader bar, cum-a-long, along with the tools mentioned above.
Hope this helps!
