Alcatraz Fencing & Gate Automation has over 20 years’ experience in the field of fencing for domestic, industrial, farms and game properties. Over time we have seen and heard both funny and serious stories as to why people need a fence repair. We have come up with the top 5 reasons you might need a fence repair based on our experience!
1. Weather
One of the main reasons that fences need repairing is due to problems caused by weather. Severe weather like heavy rainfall, harsh winds and salt air can all cause degradation of your fence, or can even cause parts of the fence to break entirely.
2. Mowing into the Fence
It never fails! Each summer we are usually called to repair or replace fencing that has been hit by a lawn mower. Thank goodness for teenagers, so we can blame them for those ridiculous accidents!
3. Reversing into the Fence
Another top reason for needing a fence repair or replaced is from someone (probably the teenagers, again) reversing into the fence with the car. On a couple of occasions someone has driven forward through the fence!
4. Dogs Chewing through the Fence
Some dogs just love to chew on natural wood fence boards. We have seen some wild pups who have practically eaten through fence boards. Good thing those pups are so cute! That’s why we recommend vinyl fencing, it’s maintenance free and dogs don’t like to chew on vinyl.
5. Bugs Eating or Nesting in Fence Boards and Posts
You might have a bug problem! Anything from bees to termites to wasps may be building their nests inside your fence boards or posts. This can create problems for your fence and possibly your house. We have seen extensive termite damage on wooden fencing time and time again. Bugs living in your fence does not make a happy backyard for entertaining!
Regardless of the reason for why your fence needs repairing, proper and timely repair and maintenance are really important to keep the integrity of your fence as a whole. If you don’t repair the fence immediately, then this will lead to other problems such as rot, damp and decay, and you may find that your entire fence needs to be thrown away, and a new fence needs installed, which is a cost that is unnecessary as a simple repair could have solved the issue.
With such a great lifespan and the protective and aesthetic properties of a fence, they really are a great investment if you maintain and repair them correctly when needed.
