Top 4 Signs It’s Time for Fence Replacement

Whether you’ve lived in your home for decades, or you just bought a home with a fenced yard, it’s important to check the condition of your fence periodically. While many small problems can be remedied with professional fence repair, larger problems call for fence replacement.

Keep reading for the top 4 signs it’s time for a new fence.

1.    Your Fence Is Rotting

This is a big one. If your fence has started to rot, it might be possible to replace a portion. But chances are good that since the whole fence was put in at the same time if one fence post or section of wood fence is rotting, there are likely other areas that are starting to rot. Tearing it down and scheduling fence replacement is your best bet.

2.    Your Fence Is Dilapidated

Another sign you may want to consider fence replacement is if your current fence is dilapidated. We’re not talking about one or two missing boards, which can be remedied by fence repair. We mean when your fence is falling down, fence posts are not seated properly, wood is cracking, metal is rusting – you get the idea. It looks really bad. It’s time for out with the old and in with the new.

3.    Your Fence Is Ugly

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But you may feel like the existing fence is anything but beautiful – it’s downright ugly. Examples of this might be a rusting chain link fence overgrown with vines or a fence that has discoloration and stains that can’t be remedied. You also might think your fence is fine, but your HOA is pushing you into fence replacement because it doesn’t comply with the neighborhood aesthetics.

It’s time for an upgrade.

4.    Your Fence Doesn’t Provide Privacy

Perhaps when you moved into your home, it already had a low fence. But now you have neighbors with prying eyes, or you’ve installed a pool, and you want more privacy. Replacing a low fence with a taller privacy fence is a good solution. You can replace the existing fence with a cedar, Trex®, or vinyl privacy fence.

Should You Repair or Replace Your Fence?

Repairing your fence is definitely the cheapest option, and offers at least a short-term solution. But sometimes, replacing your fence is the better choice. It all depends on the overall condition of your fence, how old it is, and your budget.

While you can do some minor fence repairs yourself, by checking out YouTube videos, we recommend hiring a professional to do a full assessment of your fence, and give you an honest opinion. You may want to get more than one evaluation.

A good rule of thumb is that if more than 20% of your fence is damaged by rot, or you have to replace more than 20% of it to repair all the issues, it’s time to replace the fence. You may also want to replace the fence because you don’t like how it looks, or want more privacy.

How Do You Fix a Leaning Fence?

If you have a leaning fence, it’s a sign of poor fence installation, unsecured fence posts, rotting fence posts, warped pickets or panels, or a combination of one or more of those. In most situations, we can fix a leaning fence be replacing one or more fence posts, or resetting them, and then reattaching the pickets or panels if they are in good condition.

If you have a leaning fence because a tree fell or a car ran into it, that is a more extensive repair.

How Do You Fix a Sagging Gate?

It’s pretty common for fence gates to sag at some point.  It can happen with age, just like it can happen to us! The good news is you may be able to fix this issue yourself if you’re handy. Otherwise, give us a call, and we can take care of it for you.

Fixing a sagging gate can involve replacing the hinges, installing a new gate post, installing an anti-sag gate kit, or a combination of the three.

Can You Just Replace Missing Boards or Pickets?

The short answer is, yes, we can. In most situations, we can find a nearly identical board or picket to replace a missing one. Or we can cut one, if it’s a wood fence. The issue is that a new picket or board will stick out like a sore thumb, especially if your fence is older. You can solve this problem by staining it to look like weathered wood, or painting the whole fence.

If you have a damaged fence panel that we can’t repair to look decent, we may recommend putting in a new fence panel. We may also recommend replacing warped boards, or anything that shows sign of rot.

How Do You Fix a Chain Link Fence?

A hole, tear, or cut in a chain link fence is relatively easy to repair, by creating a patch of chain link that we then connect to the existing chain link. We do our best to match the material to make the patch blend in with the rest of the fence – for example, we wouldn’t use the standard grey chain link to patch a vinyl coated black chain link fence.

For more extensive damage, we might recommend replacing a larger portion of the chain link.

Will You Repair My Fence If You Didn’t Install It?

Yes, we will. We offer fence repair for all types of fences to any homeowner or business owner in the Denver area who requests our services.
