Checking Your Fence for Damage
For wood panels, one has to watch out for small holes or rotten parts. These parts mean that tiny microorganisms are living and eating the wood, causing cracks inside it. It will only be a matter of time before it spreads out to other panels and posts.
When there are only two or three panels that crack, repairing them might be a better option. But when many of the boards are losing their reliability, replacing them is more comfortable on your wallet. Professionals from North Fort Wayne Fence Co. will be able to show you the numbers.
Signs of loosening posts are leaning fences or visible dugout spaces under the fence. Sometimes you can backfill it and have the post stand straight up again for a while. But, this does not last long.
New, firm fences will give a sense of security to the people looking at it. It also enhances the appearance of the house regarding tidiness and cleanliness.
