This post shows the five steps to troubleshot the area of the privacy fence.

Step 2: Fig.2 shows that two fences were purchased for this job.

Step 5: Fig.5 shows a torpedo level at the top of the post. What made this job more difficult is that the client had installed a slate tile over the patio cement and drilling the slate was more difficult than if just the cement was drilled.
