How to Build a Fence

STAY-TUFF FENCES ARE DIFFERENT

Even if you have experience building other types of fences, our system may be a little different than the methods you've used before. We think you'll find it worth your while to read through our fence building tutorial. We provide complete instructions and photographs as we walk you through the process.

Remember, your Stay-Tuff fence is not a traditional farm fence that you can expect to replace in five to ten years. It is a high-tensile, heavily galvanized, highly-tensioned fence that will last for 25 years.
