As you can see, there are plenty of benefits to installing a new vinyl fence around your property. But before you jump at the chance to buy a new fence, you have questions. This is why we have decided to start a blog mini-series titled “Fence Installation FAQs.”
The first installment of “Fence Installation FAQs” is centered around the question “Should I install a Fence Gate on a Slope?” And the simple answer is NO! While you can install a fence gate on a slope, you probably shouldn’t.
