It is important to regularly inspect your fence for any damage and keep your fence clean. Inclement weather can cause trouble for your fence either from moisture damaging the material or from rain or snow altering the soil and potentially exposing beams or removing support that might weaken your fence. Also, severe winds could cause falling debris to damage your fence. To help prevent some of this damage be sure to remove any snow from your fence so that it doesn’t sit against the fence for long periods of time. Repair any soil that is eroded after a storm and contact Crispline Fence Systems if you think your fence has been compromised in any way, they will assess the damage and make any necessary repairs. On a regular basis you should be checking your property for any debris that could potentially damage your fence and have it removed.
If you have a wood fence installed, snow and rain can damage the fibers of the wood and leave it more susceptible to rot and mold. You can help minimize the damage by sealing your fence with an appropriate wood stain. Not only will staining create a protective barrier on your wood it will also help to freshen the appearance of your wood making it look clean and new again. Be sure to pressure wash your wood fence prior to stain application.
Fences made of other materials such as wrought iron fences can also be protected. Wrought iron fences often become rusted and you should repair any rust or scratches as soon as they appear to prevent them from spreading. You can use wax, such as car wax, on your wrought iron fence to protect the paint. If you need to touch up the paint be sure to use rust-proof paint.
