An aging fence can come from a lot of sun exposure and other weather-related factors. Fences typically don’t last forever, but with a little TLC, they can last quite a while. If your fence is starting to lose its luster, then it could mean that it’s time for a replacement. Here are some telltale signs that your fence is aging or damaged beyond repair.
Normal wear and tear happen with wood fences. As each season changes, fences take on these changes. Summer is hot and humid. Winter is chilling and often comes with inclement weather such as snow, ice, and hail. It rains a lot during the beginning of spring. Fall comes with its windy days. What this means is that wood fences can take quite the beating. Look for signs of discoloration, warping, and splintering. If you’re not sure that a fence replacement should happen, give us a call.
Vinyl fences are popular because they’re low-maintenance. However, some damage is typical. The first thing that you should take note of is any cracks in your vinyl fence. If you do notice cracks, assess how much damage there is, and then give us a call so that we can determine if fence replacement is necessary.
Aluminum fences, just like vinyl fences, are low-maintenance. However, some areas of aluminum fences do need special attention. Storms or extreme events are usually the culprits behind damaged aluminum fences. You may notice that soil is starting to loosen up around the posts. One way to combat this problem is by having a section of your aluminum fence removed. We suggest that you call a professional fencing company like us to take care of that for you.
The point of privacy fences is in the name. If you start noticing that you can see your neighbor, then there is something wrong. If you notice that this kind of fence, or any fence for that matter, is leaning over, then, this is a telltale sign that replacement should happen pronto. Not only is having privacy essential to a large percentage of homeowners, but you also want to make sure that the fence is high enough for your pets and children not to climb over it.
