  • A Guide to Basic Fence Maintenance

    If you recently installed a new fence, you are likely wondering what maintenance will be necessary to keep it looking fresh and well-maintained. In addition, proper maintenance of your residential or commercial fence will help to extend its life and keep your fence in good repair. However, your care should be tailored to the material of your fence. Whether you have a vinyl, wooden, or aluminum fence , here are our best practices for basic fence maintenance.

    Vinyl: Vinyl fencing requires little maintenance. Unlike wood, vinyl requires no painting, staining, or sealing, and will not rot, warp, or splinter. However, for best aesthetic results, your fence should be cleaned annually with your garden hose and a scrub brush. Any stains can be treated with a combination of 1/3 cup powered detergent, 2/3 cup household cleaner, and one gallon of water.

    Wood/Cedar: Your wood fence will require annual inspections to ensure that it is in good repair. Once a year, check your fence for rotting, splitting, or otherwise damaged fence panels, and repair or replace them as needed. In addition, your wood fence will need to be resealed approximately once every two years. Sealing your fence will help it to stand up to moisture and other adverse weather conditions. Caulk can also be used to protect your fence from moisture. Place caulk between your fence and fence posts to minimize water damage and help extend the life of your fence.

    Aluminum : Like vinyl, aluminum fencing is a low-maintenance option. To maintain your aluminum fence, wash it annually with soap and water. Inspect hinges and fence fasteners to ensure that they are working properly. Because plants can grow into your fence, you may want to check your perimeter regularly and trim any overgrown bushes or shrubs.

Chain link can also be used to secure a commercial property or construction site.

    Wide Variety : Today’s chain-link fences offer consumers a great deal of variety. In the past, chain-link fencing was only available in one, utilitarian color. Now, vinyl-coated chain-link options , available in a wide range of colors including black, green, and brown, allow fencing to blend seamlessly with any house, landscape, or residential building.

    Low Maintenance: Unlike some other fencing materials, chain-link fences can provide an easy, low-maintenance option. The only maintenance needed is occasional rust removal and an annual washing.
