Wooden fences are very attractive, but wood fencing will lose its beauty without proper fence maintenance. Unlike other fencing styles, wooden fences seem to face forces that are determined to ruin their integrity. From insect damage to the weather, your wooden fence will face a lot of challenges. With proper fence maintenance, however, you can maintain the aesthetic appeal of your wooden fence.
Quickly Repair Damages
Sometimes we like to put things off, but as soon as your wooden fence faces any type of damage you need to make sure to properly repair it. This is often made easier when hiring a professional fence service, however, as a professional can identify potential issues that may occur in the future and offer long-term solutions. A fence can become damaged from rotting, splitting and a number of other factors. There are some jobs that can be finished in a few hours, but sometimes a wooden fence will need an overhaul if it faces significant damage. With proper fence maintenance, you can easily identify issues that arise.
Staining Wooden Fences
An important part of wooden fence maintenance is sealing and staining. Staining will help your fence maintain a natural wood look, but how often you seal and stain will depend on where you live. If you live in an area with a lot of rain, you will need to seal and stain your fence more often. In moist climates, you should reseal your wooden fence every two years, and you should make sure that you seal your wooden fence before you stain it. Again, a trusted professional will let you know how often you should seal and stain your wooden fence based on your location.
Preventing Infestations and Terminate Damage
During the winter, all sorts of bugs like to make a home in your wooden fence. By the time spring comes around, you may start to notice an infestation. Wooden fences made from pine, fir, cedar, and redwood are very susceptible to terminate damage. There are certain chemicals that you can buy to protect your fence from infestations, but regular fence maintenance will allow you to spot infestations before the critters completely take over your fence.
A wooden fence is an extension of your home, and working with a professional can keep your home at the standards you expect!
