Signs to Replace Your Fence
If you’re starting to notice that your fence is looking weathered, do a quick inspection yourself. Start by inspecting your fence carefully from ground level and work your way up.
Here are a few signs signs to look for:
Insect Damage: Signs of insect damage can be holes in your fence, as well as visible signs of burrowing or gnawing. Small damage is easily repairable. However, extensive damage likely comprises the structural integrity of your fence.
Rotting: Rotting causes fence deterioration. If caught early, the rotting section can be removed and replaced to prevent spreading to your entire fence. Unfortunately, if the rotting has spread, it’s likely that your fence has weakened and will need to be replaced.
Splitting/Splintering: This is an easy sign that you can look out for. Fences that have begun to split will begin to sag or fall. If the boards appear damaged, it’s best to have them replaced as soon as possible.
