Maintaining and restoring a wood fence ensures your property has security and remains good-looking. A damaged fence gives easy access for pests to enter your yard or allow your pet to escape. It’s also crucial to revive your fence to maintain your property and enhance the appearance of your home. This article will detail the ways of restoring a wood fence.
Restoring Wood Fences
Hercules Fence of Northern Virginia recommends a wood fence when you desire an inexpensive option. However, wood fences require maintenance and restoration. Examining your wood fence’s condition is crucial to ensure the fence is intact to guard your property for privacy and security. There are also a couple of items you might need to analyze for damage to the wood fence. The wooden fence also needs to be stained or painted.
Tools and Materials You Might Use
- A garden hose
- Pressure washer
- Electric or manual sander
- Extension cord
- Wood stain
- Paint, paint rollers/brushes, paint sprayer
- Wood stain
- Nails or screws
- Safety glasses or goggles
Restoring Process of a Wood Fence
Furthermore, wood fences need a pressure washer treatment to eliminate debris, dirt, bird droppings, lichen, mold, and more. Complete the following tasks before you paint or stain your wood fence:
- Thoroughly clean it
- Fix any broken posts or slats with a drill or pliers
- Sand the wood so that the fresh coat of paint or wood stain will stick to the wood
In addition, restore a wood fence correctly by following the directions on your wood-safe paint or stain. You can also manually paint your fence with brushes or rollers or use a paint sprayer that reduces the repair time to restore your fence to its new condition. Protect your hands and nice clothes by wearing garden gloves and dirty clothes. Make sure also to wear safety glasses or goggles to protect your eyes when spraying or painting.
This repair process might have to be repeatedly done every several years. Homeowners typically discover that they can pressure wash wood annually or semi-annually to keep a clean outdoor space. As a result, restoration and proper maintenance of your wooden fence can guarantee it lasts up to 30 years.
