  • How to Care for a Wood Fence

    Caring for a wood fenceA wood fence is a great addition to your home. This style of fence is great for creating a private and secure outdoor space for your family while also adding an aesthetic appeal and value to your home. However, a wood fence will only drag your home down if it isn’t cared for properly. Lack of care for your wood fence can lead to rot and damage, which will leave you with a hefty replacement bill.

    So how can a homeowner properly care for their wood fence?


  • Caring for your Wood Fence

    Caring for a wood fenceWood fencing is a great way to add security and privacy to your yard while enhancing the overall look of your home. After taking the time and money to install a wood fence, you want your fence to last you a long time. There are steps that can be taken to help your wood fence last longer, saving you money and keeping your home looking at its best.

    1. Keep the tops of your fence at an angle. This will prevent pooling water and will stop rotting.
    2. Make repairs whenever needed to your fence.
    3. Keep debris that will eventually decompose away from your fence. You can also avoid plants and bushes from growing near the fence to prevent damage.
    4. Have sufficient draining systems in place around your fence to prevent water damage from standing water.
    5. Stain your fence every 3-5 years to help preserve and protect your wood fence.
    6. Clean your fence with a quick spray of the hose to remove light dirt.
