Best time to Install a Fence

As you probably know, the start of fall means that changing leaves, pumpkins, and bonfires are just around the corner, but it also marks the best time for homeowners to invest in a new professionally installed fence. Spring and summer are typically the busiest times of the year for fencing companies, and since there are fewer rainy days during the cooler months, the ground is less damp, so the concrete used to hold the fence posts can set properly. Additionally, fall presents an ideal opportunity for fencing contractors to update their toolkits to complete remaining projects and prepare for next year. Malco has the durable and user-friendly fencing tools that any professional needs to securely install a chain-link or vinyl fence.

The resulting raised tabs facilitate a durable lock that prevents the picket or rail from pulling out of the joint opening during high winds or inclement weather.
