Remodeling Detail – The Details Matter
The Importance of Remodeling Details
One sixteenth of an inch is a very small unit of measure. You probably know that being off by 1/16” can create many problems in remodeling. That is why we take painstaking measures to pay attention to the smallest detail.
Aligning a fence can be tedious. Most contractors will install a corner post and run a string from one corner to another. They will align the fence posts to the string. Then they will install the rails and nail the fence boards to the rails and be done. It probably looks good and may even appear level, aligned and nicely installed.
Remodeling Details – Above and Beyond
We go above and beyond that. Our difference is in the detail. The above picture is a simple image of a nail on top of a fence board. But the function of that nail makes a difference, even if it is only 1/16” of correction. The nail will help the string remain true. String sags, blows with the wind, loosens after time. This simple practice, nailing a nail into the top of the fence board between the corner posts, ensures that the instruments by which we measure verify that the alignment is good.
Notice how the middle of every fence board is lined up with the string. That is not an accident. It is a detail that produces great results. It would be so easy not to worry about this nail, not to be bothered by the string sagging by a quarter inch. After all, don’t all fences eventually bow and lean? The corner posts will move as the soil moves. Why worry about aligning the top of every fence board with that nail and string?
