Howie’s Tips

  1. Once your Roof is constructed, create drainage (drill holes) in wood marked ‘A’ in Roof Plans and on bottom of the Planters.
  2. When attaching the FLEX•fence brackets onto the rails allow for the brackets to move freely (swivel). Do not over tighten!
  3. When sizing FLEX•fence always cut the rails and operating bar with hand tools and never with power tools.
  4. Always wear protective goggles.
