Wooden Fence Repair: Indentifying Your Fence Repair Needs

It’s a good idea to perform routine repair and maintenance on your wood fence to help it last for a lifetime. Look for problem areas like cracked paint or splinters that might need to be scraped away, sanded, and repainted. Make sure there are no loose nuts or bolts, and if there are, tighten them right away. Inspect the entire fence to see if there is any rotten wood, which will need to be replaced to prevent termite damage. Take a final look over the fence to ensure everything is in working order.

  • Wrought Iron Fence

Choosing a wrought iron fence means you do not have to add any extra decoration. Many wrought iron fences have intricate scroll-like patterns and decorative ornaments atop each post. A wrought iron fence can give your backyard a whole new dimension of personality and beauty. Better yet, it can seriously withstand the elements. Wrought iron will be a little more expensive than other fences, but it will also be a worthwhile investment.

  • Ornamental Aluminum Fence

To get the look of a wrought iron fence without the cost, an ornamental aluminum fence is the way to go. Just like their more luxurious counterparts, an ornamental aluminum fence is durable and long-lasting, with little-to-no maintenance. This fence gives you security and is perfect for enclosing a backyard spa or pool. Aluminum fences also come in a variety of colors, from classic white to bronze, so it’s sure to match your landscaping.

  • Fencing Adornments

If you prefer the look of a wood fence, then you might like to decorate with an ornament that will draw the eye straight to your beautiful fence. Flowerpots, lanterns, and flags will all make nice additions to your fence. If you want to really stretch your creative muscles, then you could consider painting a mural on your fence. Don’t forget to add twinkling lights during the holiday season. A fence does not have to just be the border of your property; it can also be an addition to your home’s décor.

Choose one of Paramount Fence’s premier fences to get a backyard that is truly unique. We have wrought iron, aluminum, vinyl, and cedar fence styles that will complement any home. For more information on our fences, visit our website or call us at (630) 406-8410.

A Few Tips for Staining Your Wood Fence

Professional fence staining ensures that your wood fence comes away with an even, quality stain that will last. If you're the DIY homeowner though, this helpful video offers up some of the best methods to consider if you are looking to stain your own wood fence.

  1. Purchase a brush and a roller. A brush is used to stain the smaller, harder to reach portions of the fence, while a roller is used to stain larger, easily reachable areas.
  2. Stain your fence two to three weeks after it’s installed. This gives the wood time to dry and completely absorb any treatments it received prior to installation. If you stain your wood fence too soon, then you might end up with an unevenly stained fence.
  3. If you are staining a large fence, then consider purchasing a stain sprayer, which can span a larger space and will take up less time than a traditional roller or brush.

Paramount Fence brings over 20 years experience in the fence business to homeowners throughout Chicagoland. If you have any questions about fence staining, or want to install your own vinyl, cedar wood, wrought iron or aluminum fence, then contact Paramount Fence at (630) 406-8410.

How to Be a Good Neighbor With Privacy Fencing

Your home should be an escape from the bustling outside world, and a fence can help you develop personal space separate from your neighbor's. You and your neighbor can both enjoy private yards and increased security. Building a privacy fence will make you a good neighbor for multiple reasons:

  • Privacy fencing beautifies your yard.

A privacy fence adds character to both your yard and your neighbor's. The fence enhances your yard’s look and style, complementing your home and any outdoor furniture or décor that adds extra character. The fence also adds value and curb appeal to your home. If you are planning to sell your property in the future, then a beautiful fence may be a necessary addition to your home.

  • Fencing keeps children and animals safe.

With a fence, you don't have to worry about your neighbor's dog tearing up your garden or your pet running away. You and your neighbor will appreciate the safety a privacy fence can provide. If you have children, then they are protected from your neighbor's animals or wild animals that may wander inside your yard. An enclosed yard also prevents your pets and children from running into a busy street.

  • Privacy fencing offers security.

If your yard is open for everyone to see, then you might feel less secure. The added security of a fence means that you can enjoy sunbathing in the yard, barbequing with family, and playing by the pool without the awkwardness of your neighbors looking in. Fencing also discourages burglaries or break-ins. Your yard is your space, and you deserve your privacy.
