Repair or Replace A Wooden Fence: What You Need to Know
Over the years fences of all materials, are known to show signs of wear and tear. The most common fence material to show it the most often, though, is wood. This is because these types of fences do require regular maintenance through the years to look their best and to function properly. If your wooden fence is failing due to rotting wood, or damage, it may be more in your benefit to consider replacing it instead of dealing with repetitive costly repairs.
It’s best to repair your wooden fence when:
-You’re dealing with a single failed post or picket that can easily be replaced on its own.
-You’ve got small holes or cracks.
-You have a few warped panels or posts.
It’s best to replace your wooden fence when:
-Your fence has significant damage due to storms and falling trees.
-You have more than about a quarter of your fence pickets are rotted.
-You have a termite infestation or other pests and insects.
-You haven’t replaced it in the past 10 years. (Typical life expectancy for spruce wooden fences.)
