What Fence Repair Do You Need?
No fence lasts forever, so no matter what type of fencing is on your property, you’ll inevitably need to repair or replace it at some point. Thanks to the climate and other forces, your fence will experience wear and tear over its lifespan. In many cases, a few expert repairs can add years to the life of your fence and save you from the hassle and expense involved with installing a brand-new one.
Depending on the type, material and purpose of the fence, the repair method may look a little different. Your local fence and gate repair contractor in Cowlitz County, WA can help you decide which method would best suit your needs. In the meantime, here are some common fencing types and potential repair methods you might use:
- Chain link and metal: Chain link fences are made of metal, and are therefore prone to rust, especially in rainy climates like ours. Because the chain link is made of wire, however, it’s simple enough to remove the rusted or damaged parts and add new mesh to replace the problem areas. For other types of metal fencing, you may notice rust or corrosion—call your fence contractor to learn more and explore your repair options.
- Vinyl: Vinyl is a particularly durable material, but it can be vulnerable to impact and the elements, too. Since it’s primarily offered in light colors, you usually won’t have to worry about it fading, but it can crack or break in some circumstances. You can address hairline cracks with a basic repair kit, but if you notice bigger problems, call a professional for help—some portions may need to be replaced.
- Wood: Wood is especially vulnerable to mold, mildew and rot, so at some point, you may need to replace posts, rails or pickets. To stave that off as long as possible, try to select the most rot-resistant materials you can find when installing your fence, and keep up with your regular wooden fence maintenance as much as possible. A little care can go a long way in keeping your fence from rotting. If the worst happens, however, a fence contractor can help you replace the damaged pieces.
