What to Expect From a Block Wall Installation
Once you’ve decided on a block fence for your property, it’s time to consider the installation. In most cases, the installation can be done quickly, though the exact amount of time can depend on the size of the fence as well as what else is needed. To start, you’ll want to work with an expert block wall contractor, so you know the construction will be done properly.
Designing the Wall
Before the block wall construction begins, you’ll work with an expert to design the wall. While the basics are the same, there are a lot of things that can vary when a block wall fence is constructed. The expert will need to know where the fence will go, how long it will be, if there are any complications like hills on the property, and how tall the fence should be. Then, they’ll need to know if you’d like a veneer, so they can finalize the design and the construction can begin.
Starting the Foundation
After you’ve approved the design, the experts will start with the block wall foundation. It is imperative this is done properly, as mistakes here can compromise the integrity of the block wall and cause issues down the road. The area where the block barrier will be constructed will need to be cleared and prepped so the foundation is completed and the area is ready for the construction to start.
Building the Wall
Once the foundation is ready, the experts can start the construction. They’ll work quickly to install block wall fencing on your property but will make sure it is done correctly. The construction is done by layering cinder or masonry blocks and mortar to the appropriate height. This will need to dry completely before anything further can be done to the wall. It is possible for the fence to be left like this, but most people will want to add finishing touches.
There are many different finishing touches that can help improve the look of your cinder block fence. Once the fence is installed, it’s possible to add a veneer or seal and paint the fence. Veneers include stone or brick, and there are many varieties of each to choose from. For a unique look, check out the more exotic stone options. It’s also possible to add stucco onto the basic fence for a different look. Then, the gate will be installed, so it’s easy to enter and exit the property.
