Wood fencing can provide your property with beauty, security and privacy for a long time. However, a wood fence can eventually begin experiencing wear and tear from prolonged exposure to the elements. Here are a few tips for extending the life of your wood fencing:
- Clean the fence – Remove dirt and mold by cleaning your fence using a pressure washer. There are mold removal products that you can attach to a pressure washer to remove any mold.
- Make repairs – Thoroughly check your wood fencing for any damage. Look for fasteners that need to be reseated or wood panels that need to be replaced. Rotting panels should be removed before the rot spreads.
- Stain or paint the wood – By staining or painting your wood fence, you’ll help protect it from warping or twisting that’s caused by prolonged exposure to sunlight and rain. Doing so can also help protect it against mold growth.
