A fence that is properly repaired and maintained will protect your home or business, add to your property’s curb appeal, and help keep your pets in the yard. However, even fences that are taken care of will need to be replaced eventually. What are some of the signs that you need to replace your fence?
There Are Holes or Rips
If you have a wood fence, is it starting to develop holes due to wood rot or damage? These holes will worsen over time, even if you take steps to prevent the moisture damage from spreading or exterminate the termites. Hercules Fence DC can visit your property and perform an inspection that will help us determine if you should repair or replace your fence.
The Wood Has Begun to Splinter
Some homeowners think that splintering wood is merely an aesthetic issue that is the natural result of wear and tear. However, splintering can happen due to poor maintenance and moisture problems, and it is not simple to repair. Taking the effort to replace your fence now can ensure that no further damage occurs that might compromise your security.
Your Fence is Leaning
Fences that are leaning are less secure, as they can more easily be pushed over or damaged. Unlike mere damage to the materials themselves, leaning fences are often signs of deeper issues, like problems with the post size or installation. The only way to correct such serious problems with the fence is to start the process of replacing your fence entirely.
Your Needs Have Changed
Sometimes the first fence that you installed is not necessarily appropriate for your needs now. For example, if you initially installed a chain link fence as a way to keep your dog in the yard but now want more privacy, installing a new wood privacy fence could be a better idea. We can guide you through all of your options to replace your fence so that it perfectly meets your needs.
Many Repairs Needed
As fences age, they will naturally start to require more repairs. If you find yourself needing to constantly invest in repairs and would like a more permanent solution, a fence replacement might be perfect.
