Having a fenced in yard is something that draws people’s attention when shopping for homes! The privacy for your backyard that a fence provides is certainly desirable. Everyone loves backyard summer barbeques where everyone gets together and has a great time, letting the dogs and kids run wild without worrying about them leaving the backyard. If part of your fence is compromised, that can become a safety issue for your kids and/or pets. Not sure if it’s time to repair? look for these signs!
Your fence is sagging- If your fence is worn out from weather or it’s been awhile since it was first built, it may start to sag. Replacing those sagging areas will definitely help bring your fence back to good condition. If the sagging is a more widespread issue and not just in a few spots it might be time to replace the whole fence!
There’s insect damage- Signs of insect damage can range from holes in your fence to burrowing or gnawing on the fence. Insect damage caught early on is a relatively simple fix, if gone unchecked for awhile though, insects can compromise an extensive part of your fence causing the whole fence to need to be replaced.
Boards that are splintering or splitting- Splintering or splitting boards can be replaced relatively easily. If you find that boards are splintering or splitting on one section of your fence, check the rest of your fence to make sure it’s not a widespread issue. Usually, if a board is splintering or splitting its from being warped from weather and age. If your beams or posts are starting to splinter, it’s time to look at repairing!
Your fence looks like it’s rotting- Even if your fence wood is weather treated, it can still rott. A rotted fence can start to take on a deteriorated look and will eventually lose it’s form. Rotting, caught early enough can mean that you only need to replace a few boards, letting it go unchecked however could mean you’ll be needing to replace your entire fence!
It’s no secret fence replacement is more expensive than fence repair, be sure to periodically check your fence for any signs that it’s being compromised!
