Fall is right around the corner, which means many homeowners are preparing their yard for the weather to come. While fall doesn’t tend to bring severe weather, it tends to be the calm before the winter storm. As you begin to rake your leaves and clean your gutters, you should also begin to consider fall maintenance for your residential fence. To begin with fall maintenance, consider the type of fence you have installed for your property. This is because different fence styles will require different maintenance techniques.
A vinyl fence tends to require the least amount of maintenance no matter what the season may be. Because of its durability, the most a vinyl fence will require in the way of maintenance is a wash with some warm water and soap. Another fence material that requires little maintenance is the aluminum fence. Avoid hanging heavy or sharp decorations from your aluminum fence to prevent any damage this fall.
A chain link fence could use some new slats this fall season to add aesthetic appeal to your property as well as increasing the privacy of your yard. You should also look over your chain link fence for signs of rusting before any heavy snow that might occur this winter. A wood fence should have all debris, like fallen leaves, removed from its posts to prevent rot and other water damage. A new stain should also be added to help provide an extra layer of protection this winter.
The fall season is the perfect time to handle all of your maintenance needs. If you aren’t sure how to maintain your fence, turn to the professionals of Hercules Fence.
