"Is It Time to Repair or Replace Your Fencing? A Guide for Homeowners"

When your fence comes down, due to wind or just the age of it, there is a question that comes up all the time, should I repair it or replace it?

There’s no easy answer, but there are some questions you can ask yourself,


• Are the posts in good condition?

• How much damage was done to the panels?

• Are we happy with the look of the old fence?

• If we fix this part of the fence, how long will it be before the rest goes?


and a big question, if we get the fence completely changed, can we afford it?


Repairing -


So long as the panels are in good shape, repairing a fence can be a fairly simple job, usually the post has rotten at ground level, and the best course of action would be to install a concrete support spur next to the rotten post.

Usually if a panel has been damaged, it’s best just to replace the panel entirely.


Replacing the entire fence -


If the fence is in a real bad way, it’s probably best to go with a new fence. There’s a huge array of choices out there when it comes to fence panels and posts that would be suitable for most budgets.
