Repair or Replace?

Wood is a natural material and like any natural material, it will be effected by natural elements. Warping and checking are two completely normal effects that nature can have on a wood fence. Continuous water absorption and water loss in the wood used for your fence will cause its natural defects to surface. The most common defects are: cupping/warping, twisting, checking, and splitting. A well-maintained fence will still experience some of these natural defects. However, the extent can be significantly reduced through proper care (which we will discuss in a later post). Over the years, if you have not taken proper care of your fence, you may notice some things that will be unsightly. Now, fences CAN be repaired, but in the long run --- you will have to think about the most cost effective plan. If a few pickets have fallen off, that can easily be repaired. With that, here are a few things that may be a sign it is time to replace your fence:
  • Pickets falling off constantly
  • Sections falling off
  • Posts and/or sections rotting or decaying
  • The overall aesthetic of your fence is no longer to your liking
  • When the quote to repair your fence is near a quote for a brand new fence, it is definitely time to replace your fence

To fix your wood fence, you can fix little openings and breaks with wood filler or clay. For distorting or more serious harm, it's ideal to supplant the influenced sheets or rails. The disadvantage of both of these fixes is that they will be apparent, essentially for some time. Wood filler can be hidden on the off chance that you paint your fence however will in any case show until the end of time. Another load up will probably appear to be unique in shading yet may climate on schedule to a comparable patina as your old fence. In the event that your fence will be painted after fix, neither of these choices have downsides. But our fencing service can make it for you.
