Vinyl Fence Installation Tips: Installing Posts and Panels

Vinyl Fence Installation Tips: Installing Posts and Panels
After setting the dimensions and digging post holes for your vinyl fence, it is time to insert the posts and panels.

First, find out which side you need to place the fence brackets on. Mark and attach with screws. If you are using a stair step method of fencing, adjust the screws accordingly. Also note with this vinyl post it is required to have a 4″x4″ post inside for stability. After setting up the brackets, you can begin to lay your first vinyl fence post.

Place a bed of gravel in the post hole for drainage and then set the post against your layout measurements with a clamp. Follow up by filling the hole with concrete. Make sure you don’t completely fill the hole, as you might want to place soil on top later. Once the cement is set, put the vinyl fence panel in place. Use a post level to make sure the post is even. Then, you can continue your fence by sliding the posts into the panels and attaching with screws. Finish off with concrete in each post hole.
