Signs You Should Have A Fence Contractor Build You A New Fence

Whether you have a fence for security, privacy, border establishment, pet containment, or another reason, you want the fence to continue to do its job well. Your current fence may be at the point of complete failure and when things get to this point, it's best for you to have a whole new fence built. By knowing how to spot the telltale signs of a fence that's in need of replacing, you can save yourself a lot of time, trouble, and money by replacing the fence with a new one. Here are some signs that you should have a new fence built instead of trying to salvage the one you have now: 

Your steel fence has rust and corrosion

If you have a steel fence, then you may have expected to get a lifetime out of it, like many people often do. However, all fences will have their limitations and will come to the point where they require replacing. If your steel fence has developed extensive rust and/or areas of corrosion, then the fence is past the point of being salvageable. At this point, the best thing for you to do is tear it down and have a fencing contractor build you a whole new fence. 

Your fence is leaning

No matter what type of fence you have and what material it is made from, you are going to want that fence to remain standing up straight along its entirety. There are numerous reasons why a fence may start to lean, and none of them make it okay. When the fence is at the point of leaning, it's too late for you to have it repaired. One possible cause of a leaning fence includes the ground shifting that causes the cement footing and the fence to tilt. Another common cause is large tree roots pushing against the fence posts and causing them, as well as the fence, to lean. When you have the fence taken down, the fence contractor can build you a whole new fence and these issues will no longer be a concern. 

The wood is rotting and damaged

When you have an issue with a couple of your wooden fence boards, you can have them replaced and your fence may be as good as new. However, if your fence is old and there are more than a couple of problem boards, you may want to have a new fence built. The boards will be damaged by exposure and time as it ages. While a properly maintained wood fence has a long lifespan, it will eventually come to a point where it can no longer be helped. Tearing it down and having the contractor build you a new fence will give you a great-looking, strong fence you can look forward to enjoying for many more decades.

The People Who Build Fences

The people who build fences are known as fence contractors. And while the majority of their job is putting up the actual fences, they do some other things, too. They visit homes to give the owners estimates for new fences. They also design fences, paint fences, and repair fences. Some fencing contractors will even seal and waterproof wooden fences, if needed. We thought that all of these hardworking people who build fences deserved a blog of their own. That's why we created this one! Here, we'll share posts that teach readers all about fences and the people who build them.
