We understand it can sound odd to talk about how strong this type of fence material is and how long this other type should last if built by a qualified fence installation company, but the fact is that every fence will eventually need repairs no matter how well it’s built. Conditions might be perfect when the fence is first built, but situations can change over the years that cause gradual or sudden damage to the materials. For example, if a fence is built that blocks the flow of rainwater, it’s possible for dirt to accumulate on one side eventually rotting the wood down there. Tree limbs and branches can fall and cause damage to fences, storms can throw a fence to the ground or cause boards to be broken off, and snow and ice can take their toll as well. If you stop to consider the never ending wear and tear a fence endures day in and day out, through good weather and harsh weather, it’s actually a real testament to material science and fence construction methods that they last as long as they do.
As mentioned, there are many different causes of fence damage and as a result, there are many possible types of fence repair. If a heavy storm has come through and knocked down fencing, we can come by and re-erect it and ensure everything is strong and looks good as new again. We can fill those annoying knot holes that naturally form in trees and that show on the boards on your fence, that naturally fall out leaving gaps in your security and privacy. Rot is another common cause for repair. Ultimately the type of repair you need for your fence depends entirely on your situation, and the best thing for you to do is to give us a call and tell us about it. If you decide to have us come fix it, we’ll get it fixed and looking great in no time.
The material your fence is built with has a huge part to play in how it handles natural wear and tear over the years. A classic wood fence, when built to code with quality treated lumber, will be structurally sound and last for many, many years, but wood is naturally prone to rot. As a side note, that’s why the wood is thoroughly treated, stained, or sealed. But other types of fences, like a vinyl fence or chain link won’t rot no matter what happens. That said, your typical vinyl fence might not give you the classic look or structural strength you’re looking for with a wood fence. And on the flip side, a chain link fence made of coated metal can eventually rust. No material is perfect, but when you combine the right material with your design goals and needs, you can still get the perfect fence for you.
