October is here and fall is finally upon the Mid-Atlantic region. Fall means crisp weather, apple picking, and a new style of yard work. With the changing of the season comes the need for fall fence maintenance. Each fence style requires some type of fall maintenance, depending on the style of fence you have for your home.
Fall Fence Maintenance for your Home
- Wood- Wood fences typically require more maintenance in general because of they run a higher risk for damage. During the fall, be sure to remove any debris resting on top or at the base of your wood fence. Leaves around the posts of your fence could lead to rotting and warping of your fence.
- Vinyl- Vinyl fencing requires the least amount of maintenance overall because of the durable materials used to create the fence. Rinsing your fence with soap and water whenever dirt or debris is noticeable will help your vinyl fence last through the fall.
- Aluminum- An aluminum fence also requires a low amount of maintenance generally. During the fall, avoid hanging heavy decorations and keep your fence free of debris.
- Chain Link- During the fall season, consider installing fence slats to increase your overall curb appeal. Remove any debris that happens to get attached to your chain link fence to decrease the chance of rusting.
