When Should You Replace Your Fence?
Do you remember when your fence was shiny and new? When all the boards were even and flush? Time passes, and unfortunately fences will deteriorate. That process accelerates when the fence was built poorly. Some things can be repaired, but sometimes it's best to just replace the fence entirely.
Here are some common signs that it's time to replace your fence
- Wood DecayNothing beats the look of a brand new, sturdy, wood fence. Inferior wood, however, will begin to decay a lot faster than a superior product such as Red Cedar. It's important to watch out for decay because it will weaken your fence. Play it safe and replace your fence when boards are no longer aligned, compromising your fence's structural integrity.
- Damaged WoodIf you've notice cracks in your fence, that's a tell tale sign of a weakened fence. If your fence is painted, make sure there are no musty odors coming from it. Needless to say, that odor is rot weakening your fence. Try to catch the signs of rot before it's too late.
- Repair QuotesIt may be time to replace your fence when the quote for a repair isn't too far off of the quote to replace the fence. Make sure if you decide to replace your fence to use the best quality wood available to you. This will counter any premature decay and damage to your fence.
- AestheticsIf your fence looks outdated, or no longer matches the style of your home, then it's time to replace it. This time around make sure you select a style and material that are going to amplify the aesthetic allure of your property or home.
