A fence is a great addition to any property, providing tons of benefits to the health and safety of your family. You probably know this if you already have a residential fence. But over the years, even the most sturdy of fences will succumb to the effects of weather and time. This often happens faster when the fence isn’t properly maintained or improperly installed. If you’re wondering whether the time is right for a fence upgrade, read on to identify four signs it’s time for a fence upgrade.
How Dilapidated Is It?
Dilapidated is a term that is relative between people. Some people may see a busted fence as a fixer-upper that requires some elbow grease to make it work. Others see a fence that needs a bit of work, but it’s work outside of their skill set as a total loss. Only you can decide, but if the amount of work that the fence needs feel like more than you can handle, you should have a professional come in and let you know your options, including the cost to replace it.
Is It Damaged Or Infested?
Even if the fence isn’t a total loss, it might be a good time to replace it if it needs work to get it up to standards. If it is already old and needs to be replaced soon anyway, it doesn’t make sense to repair it now only to replace it next year.
Is it Drawing The Wrong Attention?
If there are issues with your fence and it’s catching attention for all the wrong reasons or depreciating the value of your property, it’s time for an upgrade. For instance, if you’re violating various regulations with your fence’s height or boundaries and the HOA, municipal authorities, or neighbors are making complaints, it may be time to replace the whole fence.
What If It’s Unappealing?
Sometimes the only reason you need a fence upgrade is that you’re not satisfied with the appeal of your current fence, and it doesn’t suit you and your needs. Maybe it isn’t as high as it needs to be. Maybe it isn’t a fencing material that fits your lifestyle. Maybe it is just hideous. If you have the budget to replace it, these are perfectly good reasons to do so.
