Install a Euro Fence

Euro fences come in long rolls that can be applied to an existing fence. This is an economical way to hide old, unsightly fences or give more privacy to chain-link fences. It is important to have a sturdy structure when installing a euro fence so that it can brave any weather. A few important steps should be taken when you attach a euro fence to an existing fence.

Measure your existing fence and determine how many rolls or sections of euro fencing you will need.

Determine the strength of your existing fence and locate horizontal support beams at the top and bottom. Depending on the height of your existing fence and your new euro fence, you will need horizontal support beams at the top and bottom of your existing structure to which you can attach the euro fence. If you do not have support beams, you can add horizontal wood to your existing structure by screwing them into your existing posts. Simply attaching the euro fencing to wire fencing without support beams will not make it sturdy enough to withstand wind and other elements.

Cut 8- to 10-inch pieces of galvanized wire using wire cutters; you will use this wire to attach the euro fence to your existing structure. Depending on the size of your existing structure, you will need to cut enough pieces to space them every 4 to 6 inches along the bottom, top and middle. Longer pieces will work well for attaching the euro fence to the fence posts, and smaller pieces will be used to attach the euro fence to the existing fence structure.

Begin to attach the euro fencing to your first fence post with galvanized wire. Make sure to thread both ends of the galvanized wire through the existing wire on your euro fence and then wrap it around the fence post on the nonvisible side. Using pliers, pull the two ends of galvanized wire tight and twist them until the fencing secure. Make sure you use at least three pieces of wire on each post and that your fencing is straight.

Roll your euro fence to the next fence post, then go back and attach it every 4 to 6 inches on the top, bottom and middle until you reach that next fence post. Use the same technique with your pliers that you used on the fence posts to secure it to the support beams. Be careful not to pull too hard when you thread the galvanized wire through the wire on the euro fence. Pulling too hard could damage the euro and puncture a hole in the fencing.

Continue rolling your euro fence and attaching it to your existing fence until you reach the end. Make sure that the euro fence is both secure and straight. When you come to the end of a roll, simply attach the next roll to the structure and continue down the fence. You do not need to attach each roll of euro fencing to the previous roll.
