How to Care For Your Fence

Whether you have a brand-new wood fence or have had one for years, proper maintenance is critical to its long-term performance. The frequent fluctuations in weather can put your fencing to the ultimate test. That’s why it is critical to have a solid maintenance strategy in place to ensure long-term function and aesthetics. 

That is, of course, much easier said than done in today‘s busy world. “I’ll do it on the weekend,” for example, can easily turn into weeks or months of procrastination. Meanwhile, the luster and durability of your fence are gradually fading.

Even when they do take action, most homeowners lack the necessary tools and know-how to get the job done properly. One thing is certain: the longer you wait, the more likely it will deteriorate to the point where it will require a complete fence replacement.

In the end, your little DIY project can quickly turn into a big headache that will cost you time and money. 

Our professional services help in the prevention of problems such as water absorption and loss, mildew growth, and wood discoloration caused by UV rays from the sun. Let’s take a look at how our team at Vacaville Fencing Pros cankeep your fences looking like new for years. 

Professional Wood Fence Maintenance Tips

No matter how high-quality the materials are or how skilled the installation is, all fences will require maintenance to keep their appearance and functioning. Here are a few of our favorite Vacaville Fencing Pros tips for making sure your fence looks fantastic and lasts for years:

  1. Use high-quality woods and installations: Start on the right foot by ensuring that the wood materials you use are of the highest quality. The same goes for choosing quality installations. When you hire Vacaville Fencing Pros to build your fence, you can be confident that we will use only the best materials for our wood fences.
  2. Proper Wood Care: Wood is prone to rot and decay since it is an organic material. To live as long as possible requires good care and attention. Fortunately, the fencing contractor will most likely stain your fence after it is installed.

    This is not, however, a one-time procedure. Re-staining a wood fence every 3-5 years, or even more regularly, is recommended.
  3. Use Quality Hardware: We build your fence with the greatest weather-proof hardware at Vacaville Fencing Pros. Hardware made of galvanized or stainless steel will not rust or deform and will endure for many years.

    If your fencing hardware is damaged, replace it as soon as possible so that the structural integrity of your fence is not jeopardized.
