“All good things must come to an end” is a saying we’ve all heard at least once growing up, and your once beautiful fence is no exception. Although wooden fences can last for up to 20 year, and vinyl, chain link or steel fences last longer, nothing will last forever. Be aware of when your fence is nearing its end, and when you should start thinking about replacing it with something new.
You can remember the day that you put in your fence, brand spankin’ new and the envy of everyone else on the block. But now your once beautiful fence is starting to show its age, and you might be wondering if it’s time to replace it. What are some of the cues that you might need a new fence?
1.) Storm Damage: High winds from tropical storms and cause all kinds of damage to your fence.
2.) Age: All fences break down as they age. Little things add up over the years and start to show.
3.) Rust: Metal fences rust over time, and while it is usually more of an aesthetic nuisance, serious rust could also turn into structural instability.
4.) Warped Wood: Over the years wood can bend and warp, detracting from the appeal of your fence, and possibly creating gaps in the fence line.
5.) Wood Rot: Another nuisance than over time can destroy your fence, and an obvious sign that your fence needs attention.
