Fence Maintenance in Guildford
When you invest a fair amount of money in any product, you want to ensure it lasts as long as possible so you don't have to spend more on repairing it or buying a new on in a short amount of time. The best way to ensure a long issue free life for your fence is by investing in regular fence maintenance.
Our experts, along with other industry leaders, recommend that you treat your fences ever 2- 3 year. There are a number of finishes that can be applied to a fence in order to seal and protect it and this depends on the type of fence and the look you want. For wood if you would like the natural wood finish, then using a stain, varnish or oils are your best options. If it is a colourful finish then using a paint will give the finish you want. There are a number of different products on the market so you must ensure you are using one that offers property protection for the outdoor elements, products that offer weather protection, and wood preservation.
If you have a metal fence made of iron, steel or aluminium, then these fences are lower maintenance and will not need re-coating as often as wood. Although many experts will argue that when maintenance is required then it is harder to do. This is owing to the fact that that you need to remove any rust, re-prime and then re-coat the fence. Again there are a number of products ranging in cost that get the job done.
Aside from the weather there is another main contributor to the damage of a fence that can be easily be avoided and that is vegetation, the growth of weeds, creepers and vines through and around a fence will cause the structure to break down and collapse.
An area of the fence that is susceptible to damage is the post, owing to the fact that it bares the weight of the fence and supports the structure. Because it is under constant pressure from the wind and rain the fence post can become dislodged and weakened. You may however not need to replace the fence or the post, there are a number of techniques that can be used to resit or brace the post to reinforce the fence and prolong it's lifespan. Carrying out this maintenance to your fence posts could significantly save you money down the line.
