Whether you need to keep something in or out of your fence, you must figure out how to attach a wire liner to a vinyl fence. Vinyl fencing lasts longer than wood because it’s weather-resistant; it is less likely to mold when exposed to moisture. If you already have a vinyl fence installed and want to make it more secure with a welded wire fence, you’ll need a few essential skills and items. Keep reading for tips to help you finish your fence project.
Choose a Type of Welded Wire Fence
The type of wire liner you choose will depend on the type of fence you’re creating. If you need to keep in chickens and keep out small predators such as rabbits, you should use mesh wire. For cattle, you can use welded wire fencing. You can choose uncoated, plastic-coated, or vinyl-coated fencing to attach to your vinyl fence posts.
Pro Tip: Vinyl is preferred to other materials because it is weather-resistant and long-lasting.
Attach Your Fencing
To install wire liners, you should measure the perimeter of your fence. You will need enough rolls of wire for the border of your fence—and possibly for a gate too. Roll out your wire liner against your fence and line it up evenly between your vinyl fence posts before attaching for fencing staples. If you’re attempting to keep small animals in or out, dig a trench below your fence and bury some of the wire fencings about a foot below ground.
