Installing a fence is beneficial for many reasons. When Milton Fencing provides you with fence installation, you can be confident in its stability. We build wood fences that are sturdy and will last a long time. However, after your fence has been installed, there are some maintenance tips you should know. Maintaining your fence will ensure it lasts a long time.
Once a year, you should inspect your fence by looking for signs of damage and rot. If you come across any damage, you should get it repaired before the problem escalates. Repairing damages in your fence will maintain its stability and ensure it lasts. Also carefully check each section of the fence to see if there is any movement and unsecured pieces. If you come across a leaning section, inspect the post for signs of damage. Often times a leaning fence is caused by a damaged footing or post.
Examine your gates' hinges and locks to see if they're secure and aligned correctly. If needed, apply automotive lubricant to the hinges and locks. While doing your inspection, don't forget to look for signs of cracks, splits or chips in the wood. If you find any, a waterproof wood glue can be used to seal the damage. This will prevent moisture from causing further deterioration.
Pressure-treated wood isn't completely resistant to water intrusion, so any measures you take to keep it dry will help the wood last longer. Simple tricks are adjusting water sprinklers so they don't wet the fence as well as trimming back any bushes and vines. Trimming these plants will help prevent them from hanging on the fence and retaining moisture.
Lastly make sure there is proper drainage around the footings of your fence. If you notice signs of pooling water, this could be an indicator of bad drainage. Water can deteriorate the concrete footings overtime and cause the fence to be unstable. A inexpensive fix to bad drainage can be firmly packing the soil around the base of each post and grading it in a slight slope away from the fence.
You should clean your wooden fence at least once every two to three years. This should be done after you have made any necessary repairs. When cleaning the fence, you should target areas where moss or graying is starting to occur. Before using water, scrape off any moss or loose flaking paint until you can see fresh wood. Afterwards, use a pressure washer to remove any dirt and clean the wood.
Once you have completed the steps above, apply an UV-protecting, water-repellant coating to the fence. This will help to protect the fence against moisture and limit weathering. If you noticed mold on the fence prior to cleaning, you can mix a solution of 20% bleach to 80% mild detergent and spray it on the fence an hour before washing it. This will help kill any mold spores and help prevent them from growing back.
Paint or stain should be reapplied every three to five years, if not sooner. Use an exterior oil-based stain or latex paint that will seal out moisture, prevent wood rot, limit weathering, and extend the life of the wood. Choose a stain or sealant that has a UV inhibitor to help prevent the wood from turning gray. Allow for about a week drying time before applying a stain or finish. Use a brush or power sprayer with a thinner tip to apply the paint or stain.
