Installing your pre-cast fence in Texas on your own might be a difficult process for you as the homeowner. However, using a professional can make things a bit smoother. If you do decide to take these steps on your own, follow the steps below. Choosing a pre-cast fence over a conventional wood fence will save you a headache down the road. If you want to avoid dealing with this process entirely, call one of our experts at Hilltop Concrete today. 


The Initial Set-Up


Before you can begin any work, you want to lay out your fence's details, including where it will go and what it will look like. Measurements should be taken on your property to make sure that the pre-cast fence will be installed properly. At this time, you should learn about the installation process and any details that might hinder the process. This would include any underground sprinkler lines or septic tanks located on the property. You should also go over the locations of your entryways, as well as any lighting or security plans. It is important to discuss every detail of the process during this stage so that fewer issues show up down the road. 


Making The Molds


When the final design has been discussed and the pre-cast fence has been paid for, the production of the walls will begin. At this stage, molds are formed, and rebar and other reinforcing items are added. The concrete will then be poured, cured, and inspected by a qualified technician. 


Shipping The Pre-Cast Pieces 


Now you wait for your pre-cast fence pieces to arrive. Unlike traditional concrete, the pre-cast concrete is already formed off-site, so you do not have to worry about concrete trucks taking up space in your driveway. All that's left now is for the pieces to be installed. Purchasing a pre-cast fence not only saves time, but it also saves you money and hassle.


Installing The Pieces


Now that the pieces have arrived, it is time for the installation process. Before you can begin, you need to make sure that the fence fitting is installed. For most walls, this needs to be done every fifteen feet where the fence will go around your property. An auger can be used to drill the holes where the flooding will be placed in. Remember to pour in concrete to fill the holes where the footing will be. This will help to secure the fence. Once all of the wall sections are laid out and reviewed, each one can be lifted over its supports and slid into place. A concrete cap should be used and placed over all of the wall footings. This will help to hide any openings at the top. They can also help to make the final concrete wall look more attractive.
