Maintenance & Tips
There are several different ways to maintain your fence. In addition to staining, painting and sealing, other things can be done to keep your fence looking and functioning like new. Most people overlook things such as cleaning, but they are really easy, great options for proper maintenance. Obviously, beyond this, doing simple repairs on your own (if you feel comfortable) or calling us to do them is another great option. No matter what kind of maintenance you need done, we promise to help you out.
Cleaning differs from material to material. With wood fences, specialized cleaner needs to be used, as the solution will soak in to the wood and using something like regular water and detergent could damage it. These cleaners are applied to individual boards and left to set. With vinyl and metal, cleaning is a bit easier. Usually with these fencing types you can use a cloth with mild detergent to dust vinyl or metal and wipe down any debris that may be collecting on your fence. Cleaning should be done regularly to ensure the integrity of your fence is upheld.
Damage, depending on fence material type, can either be fixed by you or, most likely, done by us. Wood fences are probably the only fences that you should attempt to fix on your own, as they are typically fixable with tools found at home. If a crack begins to form in your fence, you can use specialized fence glue to fill it. If screw or nails begin to come out, you can drive them back in. However, if bigger problems start to arise, or you are needing parts repaired or replaced on a metal or vinyl fence, it’s best to let us take care of it.
Stripping and Repainting
Stripping an already painted fence before repainting it is a great option. While you can paint right over an already painted fence, if the original layer of paint is in bad shape, it could make it so that the new layer doesn’t stick, dry or set that way that it should.
