Nebraska Handyman specializes in high quality privacy fences and all other types of fences that are built to last. Nebraska Handyman provides wood fencing, chain link fencing, security fencing, and any other type of residential or commercial fencing.
Every fence post gets concreted at least 24" into the ground. Every fence is perfectly straight and level. We use good materials only. We use exterior rust proof screws which are designed to hold twice as good as nails, and last twice as long. We clean up after ourselves. We are licensed and insured. We have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Our customers love us and use our home improvement services over and over again.
Nebraska Handyman installs mostly the standard six foot privacy fence, but can also install security fencing, chain link fencing, and any other type of fence. For privacy fences, we typically use either treated pine, cedar, or cedar tone pine, and these types of fence pickets come in 6 inch and 3 inch wide measurements.
After removing the old fence, the first thing Nebraska Handyman does is set in concrete, and brace off the corner posts. After the corner posts have been allowed to set up over night, Nebraska Handyman will use a string line from corner to corner at the bottom and the tops of the fence posts. Each fence post hole will be marked at eight foot on center, along the string line that stretches from each corner post. Once the holes are all dug, each fence post will be set in concrete in perfect line.
The best way to get the top of a privacy fence even is to make sure all of the tops of your fence posts are at the correct height. Nebraska Handyman uses the tops of the fence posts to determine the height of the picket. Set your horizontal 2x4's at the same heights from the top of each fence post. Then measure up off of your horizontal 2x4's the exact same height for each fence picket. This creates a perfectly straight top from one fence post to the next, but it still follows the contour of the ground; it just does it from one fence post to the next as opposed to each individual picket.
