How to Prevent Rot on Your Wood Fence

How to Prevent Rot on Your Wood Fence

When it comes to keeping your wood fence intact, you are probably willing to do anything to make it last longer.

When it comes to keeping your wood fence intact, you are probably willing to do anything to make it last longer. Rot is just as bad as mold since both can affect the integrity of the fence and cause it to collapse before its time is up. Here are some useful pointers for how to prevent it from happening. 

Finding Better Wood

Getting higher-grade will go a long way towards ensuring your fence will last. It depends on where you live, but hardwood is much better for your fence. Whether or not you use cypress as part of the wooden floors in your home, you can trust it to do a fantastic job when you choose it to be the base of your new wood fence. 

Trust the Professionals

It is theoretically possible for the average homeowner to build a fence and then install it. However, for the best results, you should put your trust in the professionals. They have been in the business of designing, building, and installing fences for decades. That way, you know they can produce amazing results, even on a quick turnaround. Keeping the fence posts clear of the soil will help prevent rot from forming, along with stopping or slowing down the growth of mold and mildew. 

Clean It Up 

Keeping the fence clean is essential. You have probably already gathered this based on what you have read, but the importance of this fact cannot be overstated. This means keeping fallen leaves and grass clippings away from the fence since both are sponges of moisture whether from rain or the morning dew. A garden hose or power washer can also make a massive difference. 

Add Protective Measures 

Adding protective measures can’t hurt, either. What this means is that you should add paint, stain, and sealing to your fence. All three measures are sure to help extend the lifespan of your fence. Plus, you can’t overlook the aesthetic benefits or increase in curb appeal when you choose this finishing touch for your wood fence!
