Fences are a worthwhile investment for any property as they provide safety; security and also adds value to your place. But the lifespan of your fence will depend on how well you maintain them. However, the best maintained fences need to be replaced eventually. But how do you know if it’s time for your fences to be replaced? Check out this list below, if you notice any of them, it probably is time to replace your fence.
- The Condition of your Fence
The condition of your fence is the obvious thing to consider when looking at a replacement. If your fence has been damaged by a storm or the material is rotten or in a condition of disrepair, it will need to be replaced. Make sure to call in the professionals as they will be able to recommend ideal fencing options for your climate and location.
- Rotten, or holes in the Wood
If you notice that your wood fences are rotting or you found holes in the boards of your fence, they are most likely caused by insects or microorganisms. By the time you notice these holes form on the outside, it means there is much greater damage that you can’t see yet.
Costing is one of the obvious things. If repairing costs almost as much or more as it does to replace it, then it is better to invest in a replacement fence.
- Loose Panels
If you discover a loose fence panel, it won’t take long for a gust of wind to take it out completely. A quick repair would do the job for a while but it probably means you require a replacement at some time in the near future.
