Common No-Dig Fence Questions

What preparation is required before installing a no-dig fence?

Before installing a no-dig fence, the property owner must clear the ground of debris, snow, or any other obstacles. Then, like any fence installation, you must call Digger’s Hotline to get utilities marked and verify permits. Finally, any landscaping, such as ground leveling or hardscape installation, must be complete.

Are there any special tools needed for the installation of a no-dig fence?

Yes! A post driver is required. In addition, you will need handle extensions, adaptors, or sleeve reducers to accommodate the galvanized steel posts.

How quickly can I install a no-dig fence compared to a traditional one?

In our experience, the average no-dig fence installation method takes 30 – 50% less time than conventional fence installation! The significantly shorter no-dig fence installation time is a result of eliminating the need for excavation or concrete foundation work. 

Can I install a no-dig fence in challenging terrain or surfaces?

Absolutely! Post-pounders can pound posts in rugged landscapes (frozen ground, concrete, rock) without any adjustments or modifications.

What adjustments or modifications do I need to make to the design of a no-dig fence for different applications?

Design modifications are necessary when a post location is within 2 feet of utilities. In this instance, digging and setting a post is better to avoid a dangerous situation. 

We generally pound and brace gate posts with a tap root system. However, there are circumstances where gates require additional stabilization with a concrete footing requiring design modifications.

How do I ensure my client’s satisfaction with their no-dig fence installation?

Proper education on installing a no-dig fence is critical to ensuring client satisfaction. Your clients will love the end product if you choose high-quality materials and follow installation recommendations.

Stronger Posts

We understand that your fence is only as strong as your posts. This is why we take great care to use the strongest posts, free of defects. We not only offer heavy-duty wood posts but our no-mess, no-dig installation adds a galvanized steel post inside the wooden post for an even stronger post.

All high-quality posts are built to ensure that your fence stands strong for years.

Stronger Top Rails

The Modern Aluminum Fence top rails are routed into the posts creating an even stronger fence installation! The U channels are screwed to the frame and the entire fence is quickly assembled on-site using our no-mess, no-dig installation.

A to Z Quality Fencing’s proprietary Modern Aluminum Fence features one of the most modern, sleek designs on the market. These fences are long-lasting and bring the best of A to Z’s vinyl (including simulated wood finishes) and aluminum products together, allowing for custom fabrication of modern, industrial, privacy fencing.

Stronger Fencing

Compared to wood, vinyl fencing is much stronger. Vinyl fencing is flexible and durable, which helps vinyl out-perform wood fencing in windy conditions and with environmental exposure to UV rays and weather.

Versatile Inlay Options

Want to create a super durable fence that’s as unique as you? With a Modern Aluminum Fence, you can pair A to Z Quality Fencing’s commercial aluminum fence with the inlay that best fits your style. Our vinyl inlay is available in 9 colors including various simulated wood tones, so you can create the exact look you want.

Durable Frame

Modern Aluminum Fence posts are composed of galvanized steel posts covered by our commercial-grade aluminum with its superior powder coat finish to create a stronger, longer-lasting fence that is more than weather-resistant – it will not rust with exposure to the elements!

Easy to Clean

Vinyl fencing can be cleaned easily with a regular garden hose. If you get a little mildew from moisture or shady conditions, you can use a mild dish soap and then spray off the fence with a garden hose. Vinyl fences are very easy to clean, making them a great option for low-maintenance fencing.

More Options Available

Vinyl fencing is available in a wide variety of configurations to match any property, home, or purpose. Iconic, white vinyl picket fences give a feel of classic Americana with that white-picket-fence-style. Darker vinyl fences can be installed to make a space look more elegant or modern. From short picket to tall privacy, vinyl fencing can be designed to enhance your backyard or business.

Strict Standards

All our aluminum fence meets BOCA (Building Officials and Code Administrators) code. These strict standards ensure your fencing is sturdy, durable, and non-climbable, protecting your property no matter if you are fencing in a business, backyard, or swimming pool!

The BOCA health and safety codes are critical when installing fencing around a swimming pool because they prevent children from getting over, under, or through our aluminum fencing.

Beautiful Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fences are a bright, bold fence choice. Available in a variety of colors, vinyl fencing can be installed in a many configurations to help you enhance the beauty of your property. And, because vinyl isn’t as porous as wood, vinyl fences retain their color and finish much longer than wood fencing so you can enjoy your fence for years to come.

Superior Powder Coating

Our superior powder coating provides a smooth, durable finish, more resistant to chips, scratches, fading, rust, and corrosion than other finishes. This long-lasting, low-maintenance finish results from our application and curing processes that melt the powder particles to create a smooth, continuous, and permanent bond to the aluminum.

In addition, our paint finish meets AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association) specifications.

Custom Fabrication

You’re steps away from a one-of-a-kind aluminum fence made just for you! Our high-quality aluminum fencing comes from our sister company A to Z Fence Supplies. We assemble each aluminum fence to meet your unique design requirements, including color, finials, puppy panels, O-rings, and custom top edges.

Stronger Posts & Hardware

A benefit of choosing our team to install your chain link fence is that we use only the most durable posts and hardware.

Chain-link fences are known for being the last fences standing during hurricanes, tornados, and other severe weather events.

Unparalleled Durability

The weakest point of any fence is where the post comes out of the ground. Our no-mess, no-dig installation process pounds a galvanized steel post into the soil. Then we slide an aluminum post over the galvanized steel posts. A steel post is stronger at ground level than an aluminum post.

Our high-quality aluminum fence, combined with our no-mess, no-dig installation process, creates a highly durable aluminum fence.
