DIY Metal Fence Installation: BarrierBoss Ultimate Guide [VIDEO]

In recent years, do-it-yourself (DIY) projects have surged in popularity among homeowners, offering not only cost savings but also a sense of accomplishment. One area where this trend is particularly evident is in fence installation. Homeowners increasingly turn to DIY metal fence installation as a cost-effective and customizable solution to enhance their properties. 

In this guide, we'll explore the benefits of DIY metal fence installation, provide a step-by-step tutorial using BarrierBoss DIY metal fence kits, and discuss when it might be beneficial to seek professional installation assistance.

Benefits of DIY Metal Fence Installation

There are several compelling reasons why homeowners are opting for DIY metal fence installation:

  • Cost Effectiveness 

Fence installation costs can vary significantly based on factors such as material type, terrain, permitting requirements, and property specifics. Professional installers often charge upwards of $60 per linear foot, making it a substantial investment for homeowners. 

However, BarrierBoss offers competitive pricing ranging from CAD $35 to $55 per linear foot. While our rates are budget-friendly, undertaking a DIY approach can result in even greater savings. By harnessing your skills to install the fence yourself, you can significantly reduce costs and allocate your budget to other home improvement projects.

  • Customization

With DIY metal fence installation, you can design your fence according to your specific preferences. Whether you envision a towering barrier for added privacy or a sleek, modern aesthetic to complement your property's style, the DIY approach empowers you to bring your vision to life. 

BarrierBoss's DIY metal fence panels come in three convenient sizes—4' x 8', 6' x 8', and 8' x 8'—providing flexibility to tailor the fence height and dimensions to suit your needs. 

  • Sense of Accomplishment 

Embarking on a DIY metal fence installation project isn't just about saving money or customizing your property—it's about the profound sense of achievement that comes with completing a challenging task. As you meticulously assemble each panel and secure it into place, you're not just building a fence; you're building confidence in your abilities and craftsmanship. 

The satisfaction of stepping back to admire your handiwork, knowing that you've transformed your outdoor space with your own two hands, is a badge of honor that can't be replicated. It's a tangible reminder of your resourcefulness, resilience, and dedication to creating a home that reflects your vision and personality.

  • Materials Included: Each kit comes with all the necessary materials, including 2x4s for the frame, 1x6s for the base, 1x4s for side inlays, and pre-finished metal panels.

  • Setting Up the Assembly Jig: Create a simple assembly jig using flat, level sheets of plywood and 1x4s to ensure precise assembly of the frame.
  • Assembling the Frame: Begin by assembling the frame, starting with the header and side pieces. Use screws to secure the frame components together, ensuring they are flush and square.
  • Attaching Side and Top Inlays: Install the side and top inlays to reinforce the frame and provide visual appeal. Use clamps to hold the inlays in place before securing them with screws.
  • Installing the Metal Panels: Position the pre-finished metal panels horizontally or vertically, sliding them into place and securing them to the frame with screws. Ensure the panels overlap correctly to maintain structural integrity.
  • Reinforcing the Fence Panel: To reinforce the fence panel, drive additional screws through the face of the panel and into the frame components, ensuring stability and durability.
