That old wood fence out there may be trying to last forever, but do you really want it to?  At some point, your fence will need to be replaced.  It’s up to you whether that happens before or after it falls down.  Hopefully you’ll choose the former!

Old Wooden Fence

Consider these four signs your fence probably needs to be replaced.

 

1. Stains

Stains on a wood fence come from the corrosion and rusting of nails and fasteners.  First, you’ll see stains or streaks from the corrosion, and eventually the fasteners and nails will lose their grip, causing your fence to literally fall apart.  Not only do stains look bad, but stains are also an indication of a lack of structural integrity.

 

2. Material

The average lifespan of a fence depends on the quality of the material used.  For instance, a wood fence will need frequent repair and replacement if a low quality wood was used.  If you’re in the market for a fence, then investigate the different materials available. If you choose wood, then consider cedar.  You can also look into materials such as aluminum, vinyl, and wrought iron.

 

3. Privacy and Security

Your fence should provide your home a certain level of security and privacy.  If you feel like you are falling short in either of these categories, then your fence isn’t doing its job.

 

4. The Look

It could be because you’re remodeling or that you’re tired of looking at the same old fence, but sometimes your current fence is taking away from the appearance of your home and property. When your fence just doesn’t look good anymore, you’re due for a new fence.
