Fences will eventually start to get worn down. Once your fence gets worn down enough, you’ll have to bring in the help of a fencing company to get everything fixed. When fixing up your fence, it’s helpful to know what caused it to get worn down in the first place. These are some of the reasons your wood fencing can suffer wear and tear.
Throughout the years, sunlight will gradually start to weaken your wood, resulting in your paint and stains fading. Sometimes, you’ll even start to see flaking and cracking. If you want to protect your fencing against the sun, you need to apply a UV blocker with a brush.
Rain can be a common problem for homeowners, and now that the weather is cooling down, it won’t be long before snow burdens our fences as well. These types of weather can cause your fence to experience rotting. This is because of the large amount of water your fence may absorb. Fungal rot can completely dismantle your fence, and the best way to stop the problem is to prevent it from happening. For this reason, we suggest you get your fence installed with wood that’s treated with fungicide as well as insecticide.
Wind is another variable that has a role in compromising the structural integrity of your fence. If you have strong enough wind, it can easily knock your fence over. But what more commonly happens is that wind doesn’t knock over your fence, and instead, it blows various pieces of dirt and debris at it. This causes your fencing to take on a lot of damage.
Mold can only grow in places that have plenty of moisture and nutrients. Because of factors such as rain and humidity that are likely going to affect your fencing, mold will probably become an issue. By applying a sealant, you can help combat moisture so that mold doesn’t end up plaguing your fence.
