How to install fence easily

Easy Fence Installation

by: Erin Ramirez

With the right tools and how-to’s, installing a fence can be as easy as 1-2-3. Although fence installation may seem labor intensive, it’s actually easier than expected. Your first step for fence installation is to decide what type of fence you’d like installed. There are many different options to choose from; wrought iron, wood, vinyl, steel, barbed wire, bamboo, electric, chain link, aluminum metal, wooden slate, rock, stone etc.

Once you decide what type of materials you’d like for your fence, you need to decide how big you’d like your fencing to be. For fence installation you need to have the right tools such as enough of the fencing materials you decided to go with, a power saw, a power drill, work gloves, tamping rod, ready-mix concrete, nails, gravel and/or sand, hand saw, wheel barrel, hoe, post hole digger, wood preservative, steel tape, marking pencil, fence stretcher, carpenter’s level etc.

Once you gathered your materials and tools for fence installation you need to decide how far apart you want the fence posts, normally people space out their posts between 6 to 8 inches. To make it easier to mark where you’d like your posts to be use better boards and string to measure out where each post should be put. Once you spaced them, you should set them. Use your hole digger or an electric spacer to make the holes and use wood preservative on the parts of the posts that will be underground. Once that is complete fill the holes full of gravel and/or sand or you can use cement and stick nails in the bracing and attach the bracing to the posts to keep the posts in place. Remember only one nail per bracing is necessary to safely secure the post. Normally two bracings are used per post. The differences between whether to use sand and/or gravel versus using cement are very small differences and so I’d recommend just using the one that you feel most comfortable using.

Once that is complete add rails to the fencing post, normally it’s best to add the rails at the top and bottom rather than the middle since it has a more stable base from top and bottom.  This will insure that the rails are installed properly and won’t mess up later on after a couple of months. That is how to install basic fence installation. There are other combinations you can add to your fence, but look for other tutorials on how to complete those.

Loewen Windows and Doors Millwork

Synopsis by:  grace s.

To our way of thinking, a window should be more than just a source of natural and air. It should be also a source of inspiration.  Consequently, you may have trouble deciding which is more inspiring:  the view outside your windows or the windows themselves.  On this video, you will inspire and become knowledgeable on what window do you want or will fit to your style.

Here in this video explains that the copper and bronze callding system of the Loewen window product is really the essence of the cyprium millwork product.  The cprium collection is artisanal in detail-down to the soldered exterior joints and rich, tactile depth of texture in the thick metal cladding and deep profiles.  These hand shape living surfaces develop distinctive patinas that adopt and define the individual aesthetic character of the homes to which they belong.  As you can see the video, Loewen windows are really unique in the wood window industry through the quality as well as the fit and finish, the durability of the product, and the architectural features.  Very thick and extruded aluminum cladding is really millwork quality finishes.  From the exterior, you really have the appearance of the durability wood window.

The rich characteristic of the vertical grain Douglas Fir is really evident in the French terrace door with the stunning grain multipoint locking hardware.  About the Push On Casement, just simple push on operation of the casement and it also brings dramatic old world style.  By using Douglas Fir as their standard wood species, they ensure that a certain imperviousness to the element is built into the windows from the start.  But they also take a number of extra steps to enhance this robust wood’s naturally tough characteristics.  For instance, they treat all of the wood with a special sealant.  This is not only makes it even more water repellant and decay resistant: it helps stain and paint bond securely to the surface.  Many of their customers choose metal clad exteriors, they offer durable extruded aluminum cladding in a rich palette of bake-on finishes.  Loewen uses thicker glass than other windows manufacturers because it makes better insulated, more sound proof and more impact resistant.  Equally important to the unmatched quality of their construction, however, is the enduring beauty of their designs.

Loewn doors offer the perfect solution to bring the outside in.  Forming dramatic entryways – and doubling as larger-than-life, functional windows – our  doors serve as bridge between your indoor sanctuary and the great outdoors.  Bella Vista is the custom door and window company that owned by Loewen product manufacturer from Arizona.  It brings the elegance and remarkable European style, handcrafted uniqueness interior doors.  Bella Vista product that shows on the video is the mahogany door, a very traditional styling and a blank panel and on the other side is the beautiful and perfect handcrafted design and refined molding.  Additional products is the Wallnut door. A very unique architectural door system is the Loewen Lift Sliding Door.  Functioning like a large moving window, doors can be open up the walls in your home to new possibilities.  This particular door panels are 9th tall, 5ft wide and they have70sq. ft with glass in any of this panel so that options are really limitless.   When the lift sliding door opened, the wall system is simply disappear into the pocket created in the framing.  Then, they also have center architectural sliding screen system which can help to protect or to be free from insects.

International Building Code for Deck Railings and Steps

synopsis by: Talat Z.

From this article you will learn about the basic international codes for the handrails and steps. Essentially what the international building code does is it provides minimum standards for building or renovating specifically as a US residential is provided by  the international residential code.

Now what is covered in this is as a concise to the step it is this that maximum rise or maximum height from the top of one tread to the top of the next. And this maximum height is measured from a finished surface so whether it’s a solid wood or carpet the maximum can be seven and three quarter’s inches. And then also as you have a number of steps the maximum difference between the height of any two treads can be a difference of maximum of three eight of an inch. The other standard that is covered as it has to do with the steps is you have to have the clear dimension of thirty six inches in width. So if you have handrail that stick out or stand off the wall the minimum width you can have between the hand rails or clear opening is thirty six inches. Now there are also standards that tell you how far the edge of the hand rail has to be from wall. It also covers the maximum height. Typically this height is around anywhere from minimum height of thirty eight inches or twenty seven inches if you have two rails.

There is other standard that covered in the international building code related to hand rails of the stairs is the minimum height clearance that you have from any step to the ceiling above you. So if the step extends pass where the ceiling start coming up then you have to measure from that tread up. Now to establish what these minimums are you need to have the copy of international building code or international residential code or you can contact your local builders department.  It will be your city department if you are living in city limits and if your are outside that will be your county. So prior to building anything or renovating anything in your home as it pertains to stairs or handrails you have to make sure that you check these specific codes and specific measurements and requirements.

Deck Hand Railings

Design of Deck hand railing

Deck Hand Railings

synopsis by: Talat Z.

Deck rails are another important safety features which are being made from two by four materials. You will learn how to make these deck rails.

A top piece will be positioned horizontally while the bottom piece will set vertically. Each of the spindle will cut at a same angle so that  when they are nailed they won’t twist. After that the top rail is nailed and the whole unit is put right in place between the post. Our stairs and hand rails take just about as much time to build as some large deck.

But there is such an important part of any deck is making sure that stairs are nice and safe and hand rails are sturdy and that they comply with your local building codes. The building codes will tell you just how high the hand rails needs to be  and exactly how much space you can tolerate between the spindles. That is very important when you have small children or pets that will be using the deck.

Another and very important element when you are talking about children have a little kiddy blocks under, because they love to stand on the bottom hand rails and this will protect that from bowing away also what keeps it a little more rigid. Because wood has the tendency to warp a little bit so this will help to keep the hand rail itself nice and straight. There are lots of ways to accessories  hand rails that really can make difference on your over all deck. Like you can consider lighting or even rope lighting used under the hand rail itself that kind of give a nice glow around the perimeter of the deck.

How to install stair railing

Installing Stair Railings – Colonial Elegance

by: Ligaya M.

Stair railings are for looks and safety and whether its time to replace your current rail or you just want to change up  the look is something you can do at your own. This article will show you how to do it.

Its very simple to put in your own railing. Start by counting the numbers of steps your have in your stair case. Count each step as one foot and add an extra foot to figure out how long the railing will be needed. For example for twelve steps you should purchase at least thirteen feet of railing. And then the mill post at the bottom and then a mill posts at the top.  You will need one short baluster for the front of the step one line baluster for the rare of the step. Also measure the distance of any straight sections. If the old stair treads are worn now it’s the good time to change then.

Colonial elegance offer a wide collection of replacing stair treads. First drill pivot hole in the half noel. Use three inch construction screws to anchor to the wall studs. The bottom screw is covered with the plug. The top screw is hidden by the hand rail. The height of the hand rail depends upon the height of the balusters. To find the location of the bottom mill we take the width of the mill add half the width and measure it from the front of the step and the same amount from the side.

This is where the center of the post would be. Now drill a pivot hole. A double ended lag bolt is screwed into the bottom of the mill and then into the stair. Make sure the post is leveled. Then lay the hand rail section at the treads of the stairs and mark both ends at the correct angle to meet the post. Carefully cut the hand rail at this angle. Next drill three quarter inch  holes at each treads to conceive the balusters.  Then attach the hand rail to the bottom rail mill with the fastener. Drill a pivot hole in the mill post at a same angle as the hand rail. Install the bolt. Then in the hand rail drill the pivot hole  and larger hole for the nut. Apply glue and slide the rail to the end of the bolt and tighten the nut.

Next inset the baluster into the hole and mark the angle where you will cut the baluster at the top. Cut each end of baluster sixteen feet longer so it fix under the groove of the hand rail. Cut all the baluster to the proper length, check the level before installing then glue them and install them. Wait twenty four hours for the glue to dry.

Repairing A Damaged Vinyl Railing

The repairing of a damaged vinyl railing

How to repair a damaged vinyl railing

by: Ligaya M.

Vinyl railings are made to be durable and low maintenance. Finished with non-porous materials, cleaning vinyl railings are easy since dirt, grime and even graffiti won’t stick to the surface. However, in as much as Achilles has a weak heal that is vulnerable to hurt, vinyl railings also have weakness. Its poles post are unfilled which makes it susceptible to damage more easily than wooden material.  The poles can be damaged when it is intentionally kicked or rammed by a stronger material or when it is accidentally hit by hard material or even just a ball.  This can cause a small crack or even hole to the poles.

Repairing holes of vinyl railings can be a challenging task.  In most instances, some homeowners prefer to just replace the damage post but there’s also a quick and easy way to repair it.  First step is to clean the area around the hole with a medium grit sandpaper then wipe said area with moisten towel to remove any dirt.  Fill the hole with an expanding insulation foam.  Spray the foam gradually to give time for the foam to expand and fill out all spaces in the hole.  Continue this till foam pile up and drips. Allow the foam to dry overnight.  The next day, sand the excess foam that dried out so that it is somewhat dipped than the post surface.  Put a plastic body filler compound to cover the foam filling. Let this dry for at least an hour. Using a puffy knife, scrape excess plastic filler to even out the post surface then smoothen it with a fine grit sandpaper.  Wipe away the dust and debris of dried plastic.

Finally, paint the covered hole with the matching color of the original vinyl railing.  If no color is available, pain the whole railing to ensure that they have uniformed color.
