The fence around your property says a lot about your home. After all, the fence is typically the first part of your home that people notice when driving by, so make sure that your fence is leaving a good impression and not scaring away guests or potential homebuyers. Although wood and vinyl fences are designed to last for decades, it is not uncommon to replace the fence around your property a few times over. If you notice any of the following signs, think about installing a new fence soon.
Rot and Rust
Over time, your fence will begin to display the damaging effects that Mother Nature has on wood and metal. Wood fences offer a wonderful rustic appeal, but rustic can turn to rot in a short amount of time if the fence is not properly sealed or maintained. Likewise, metal fences can develop unsightly rust after prolonged exposure to rain, sleet, and snow. If your fence is an eyesore, consider replacing it soon.
Warped fences are not only unsightly, but they are also liabilities waiting to happen. As fences age, they are less resistant to heat and moisture, both of which can cause the posts and support structures to warp. When a fence becomes warped, it does not fit as snugly as it was intended to, and it is then only a matter of time before a strong wind storm causes your fence to fall apart.
If you install a fence, it is your responsibility to make sure that both sides are well-maintained and within the boundaries of your property line. A boundary fence that is dilapidated or crosses into your neighbor’s property can cause a lengthy (and expensive) dispute. To keep your neighbors happy, and to avoid the legal fees of a zoning hearing, install a new fence and make sure to follow zoning regulations.
