Keep reading to learn the answers to the most frequently asked questions we get.
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.
