5 Important Fence Repair Tips

There is so much to consider when you need fence repairs done.  Here are some points for you to keep in mind:

  1. Check your Deed Restrictions and/or with your HOA so you can share any requirements with fence contractors.  Do not assume that the contractor has that information.
  2. The most popular picket materials are Pine and Cedar.  Cedar is more expensive, but it has oils and acids in the wood that makes it undesirable to many insects.  Cedar also warps less than Pine.  Steel posts do cost more than wood posts.  Unlike wood posts metal cannot be eaten by termites, nor do they rot like wood can.
  3. Ideally, your fence is better off not touching the ground.  Kick Boards (also referred to as baseboards and rot boards) close the gap between your fence and the ground while protecting your fence from rot, termites, and helps keep a pet from breaking fence pickets.
  4. Sun and rain leeches out the natural protection a wood fence has, turning it grey over time.  Staining does not protect a fence forever.  You need to re-stain your fence every few years, but that is cheaper than rebuilding.
  5. If a price sounds too good to be true – it is!  Always ask for a detailed bid in writing.  It may take a contractor a little more time to get that to you, but you will know what you are really paying for.  This also helps if you are splitting the cost with neighbors.

Project: Wood Fence - Repair

"Excellent communications, easy scheduling, effecient use of time on the job. They put up a wood fence on my patio and there was only one thing I would have preferred; they should have used three rails instead of just two to nalil the pickets slats on. Otherwise, the wood fence looks good. The iron fence paint job looks good but I think it could have used a second coat. Overall, I would grade the quality of the entire job as a B. Sincerely, Houston, TX"
