... and what if we need to disassemble the fence?

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop! Today, we'll talk about a slightly different topic: how to disassemble a fence. We often find ourselves needing to redo an old fence, whether for a private property or a sports facility. But how do we proceed? Where do we start? And where should the materials be disposed of? Let's find out together!

1. Detach the mesh

The first step is to detach the mesh and wires. For this, pliers might be sufficient. Cut segments of mesh about 5-15 meters long, depending on the weight and your ability to handle it. Once cut, you can fold it like puff pastry or roll it up, although the latter option takes up more space. Accumulate the segments of mesh in neat piles.

2. Remove the fence posts

The second step is to remove and cut the fence posts, which are usually made of iron. We recommend using a grinder or flex to cut them at ground level or at the base. Accumulate the cut posts in separate piles from the mesh. The iron can be divided into light (the mesh) and heavy (the posts), and can be sold or disposed of at scrap recovery centers.

3. Manage the concrete bases

The third step concerns the concrete bases. If you want to remove them, you will face costs and need to obtain special permits for transport and disposal. We recommend calling a specialized company for the recovery of these materials. An alternative is to leave the bases where they are and build the new fence next to the old bases. This avoids high costs and time.

4. Dispose of additional materials

Any shading, plastics, or posters must be disposed of correctly. These materials should be divided and taken to the appropriate recycling center. At Fenceshop, for example, we have three bins for iron, wood, and plastic materials. When we return from a dismantling job, we separate the materials, which are then collected by specific vehicles.

5. Recover reusable materials

It is not excluded that some of the material can be reused. If the mesh is still in good condition, it could be useful for a garden or other projects. Even the posts, if cut, can be reused for shorter fences. Shadings and tension wires, on the other hand, are less likely to be recovered.
