Winter Maintenance Tips For A Chain-Link Fence

A chain-link residential fence has several advantages. Chain link fences are inexpensive, robust, low-maintenance, and adaptable. However, you must maintain your fence to ensure it lasts decades without rusting. Chain link fencing requires some upkeep but less than other types of fencing. Think of this blog as a maintenance guide. Listed below are our top suggestions for fence maintenance this winter.

Learn how to take care of your fence properly so it lasts forever.

Thoroughly Clean Your Chain-Link Fence

Even though your chain-link fence will not require periodic thorough cleaning to maintain its appearance, you will still need to clean it regularly. Simply hosing down your chain link fence with water will remove most dirt and debris, preventing corrosion and damage over time. For harsher buildups, such as bird excrement, a simple dish soap solution removes any unsightly debris and dirt.

Protect Your Fence From Rust And Corrosion

The primary worry with chain link fences is the potential for rusting, whereas aluminum fencing, for example, retains its luster for decades. This entails an annual application of rust preventatives. Rust may damage and destroy your fence, necessitating repairs or an entire replacement. Applying a rust-resistant coating product once a year to your chain-link fence can protect it against rust in the long run.

Remove Any Landscape Elements From Your Fence

Climbing plants along privacy walls and shorter fences are a popular landscaping technique. Although this works wonderfully for stone walls, chain link fences are susceptible to damage from plants growing through them and eventually breaking and rusting. Reduce the risk of damage to your fencing by removing tree seedlings and pruning back nearby vegetation.

Routinely Inspect Your Fence For Damage

In the same way, you would keep an eye on any other part of your property; it is essential to inspect your fence regularly to ensure that it does not require any repairs. If you examine your fence regularly, you can see signs of rusting or shifting in its earliest stages, allowing you to avoid costly repairs in the future. Maintaining your fence correctly will guarantee that it will appear brand new for many years.
