    The Steps of Repairing a Wood Fence

    Last updated 1 day 7 hours ago

    A wood fence is an attractive addition to your home. While a professionally-installed wood fence will handle whatever Mother Nature throws its way, it’s not indestructible. Over time, the elements and the normal abuse a fence takes will result in a weakened and unattractive wood fence. The good news is that your Fort Worth fence contractor can repair your wood fence and keep it in the best shape possible for many years to come. Here’s a look at the wood fence repair process so you know what to expect.

    Assessing the Damage
    First and foremost, your fence contractor will need to assess the damage to your wood fence. Depending on the extent of the damage, your contractor may recommend that you replace the damaged section of your fence rather than replace it. The decision will come down to the cost of fence repairs versus the cost of fence replacement.

    Rail Mending
    For fence rails that have pulled loose from one another, your fence contractor may be able to mend the break with scrap wood pieces or a couple of metal T-braces, which are somewhat less conspicuous and often make a more lasting repair.

    Post Filling
    When a fence post begins to wobble, your fence contractor may simply need to fill in a new concrete base to steady the post. Filling in fence posts is less noticeable and more permanent than other post repair options, like adding a pair of stakes to the post.

    Gate Squaring
    When the gate on your wood fence sags or won’t close properly, your fence contractor may need to square it up to counteract the added weight that has pulled the gate out of alignment with the fence. You may also need to have new hinge screws installed if the old ones are constantly pulling loose and causing the gate to sag.

    How Durable is a Vinyl Fence?

    Last updated 25 days ago

    If you’re looking for a sturdy, low-maintenance fence for your home or business, consider vinyl. Although the manufacturing process varies slightly for different manufacturers, all vinyl fences are made of high-tech polyvinyl compounds that stand up to wear and tear better than most other fence materials. For more specifics, read this short article to learn about the durability of a new vinyl fence. 

    Ultraviolet Resistant
    Early forms of vinyl fencing were essential PVC pipe flattened and extruded to look like lumber. Although the product was durable, the polyvinyl chloride would degrade and turn yellow after a short time in the sun. Titanium oxide was added to the mixture to give the vinyl UV resistance. Today’s vinyl fence manufacturers add titanium oxide only to the outer layers of the fencing where it does the most good while also reducing costs.

    Flexibility and Tensile Strength
    Thanks to the high-tech polyvinyl compounds used in today’s vinyl fencing, you can expect your new vinyl fence to have five times the tensile strength of wood. Vinyl is also four times more flexible than wood, meaning it’s very difficult to stretch or tear apart. Vinyl fences are impervious to many other problems commonly associated with wood fencing, including rot, splintering, and termites.

    Lifetime Warranty
    Vinyl fence manufacturers are so confident in the durability of their fences that each one if backed by the manufacturer with a lifetime, limited warranty. A lifetime warranty can come in handy as a bargaining chip or as extra incentive when showing your home to potential buyers, should the day ever come when you decide to sell.
