Whenever there’s a broken or deteriorated fence, you’ll face one or two options for how to deal with it: repair or replace.
Of course, like anything else on your property, the extent of the damage will dictate whether you should fix the fence or opt for a new one. Your friends at 76 FENCE would like to offer a few guidelines on how to approach that decision.
Generally, you can perform minor maintenance on a wooden fence if the damages are small and/or isolated to a specific location. Sometimes, it’s better to have a repair guy take out or modify one section of wood rather than scrap the entire fence (saving you significant expenses).
These are the primary factors that impact how to approach mending/replacing a wooden fence.
If your fence has noticeable structural damage, or has become unsafe to use (holes, instability, rot, etc.), then you should strongly consider a full replacement.
For smaller problems, it’s easy to have a professional swop out specific slats to address the problem. We always recommend calling for help and avoid making mistakes by trying to “DIY” the repairs. Also, don’t forget that if you replace a wooden fence, you’ll have to find some place to dispose of the old wood. 76 FENCE can help you with that matter anytime, though.
Even the best-treated wood won’t last forever. It has a shorter lifespan, normally around seven to 10 years, which is why some property owners prefer more durable options such as steel fences or composite fences. If you aren’t sure what to expect from various styles and materials, one of our representatives would be more than happy to go over different options with you.
We’re here to help if you need repairs, staining, or total replacement for any kind of fence. This goes for those on either residential or commercial properties, including HOA business owners.
So, let 76 FENCE help you restore your wooden, vinyl, chain-link, or any other fence, and rid yourself of all the hassles. If you’d like to learn more about our services, then contact us anytime with questions or comments.
