How to Care: Wood Fencing

New-FenceA wood fence is a great way to provide your yard with an added level of privacy and security while helping to also add an aesthetic appeal to your property. After you have spent the time to determine that a wood fence is what you want, and spending the money to have a wood fence installed on your property, you want to ensure that your wood fence is going to last on your property. If you fail to care for your wood fence properly, you could be left with a damaged fence that will cost you more money than you originally anticipated.

So how can you care for your wood fence?

  • Have a stain painted on your wood fence every few years to help preserve the wood, enhance the color, and protect the grains.
  • Check your fence regularly to determine if damage has occurred. If damage has taken place, repair immediately.
  • Have the tops of your fence situated at an angle to prevent water from pooling at the top. If water begins to pool, your posts could begin to suffer from rot.
  • Provide a sufficient way for water to drain from your yard and around your posts to prevent water damage.
