Easy Care and Maintenance for Your Fence

When was the last time you cleaned your fence? Proper and regular maintenance not only keeps your fence looking nice but helps it to last longer. However, not all fences are made equal. Some fences require more time and money to maintain and need to be fixed and replaced more often. We have several tips on how to best care for your fence while saving time and money.

Wood fences are some of the weakest and most high maintenance fencing materials. Wood fencing cracks and pits faster and is easily damaged in severe weather. To clean a wooden fence, you not only have to spray it with a high-power washer but also regularly stain it or apply sealant. You also must repaint it often to protect from damage caused by the sun’s UV rays.

Chain-link fences are easily manipulated and rust and corrode quickly especially in high salt environments like Florida’s. They are also easy for children to climb over and for dogs to dig under and escape. To maintain a chain-link fence, it is recommended you wash, wax, apply a rust protectant, and oil the gate hinges every month. Not only do these materials require expensive and frequent maintenance but they will still not last as long as other fencing materials.

Aluminum and vinyl fencing are low maintenance and provide a sleeker and more beautiful look to your home. At Best Fence our aluminum fences are finished with a powder coating, which last longer than paint, to ensure longevity and resist rust. Our vinyl fences are especially kid and pet friendly and can be custom designed to your desired style and level of privacy. Plus, both are sturdier options to resist flying debris caused by severe weather or other accidents. For maintenance, you only need to spray your aluminum or vinyl fence with a garden hose about once or twice a year. For more heavy-duty cleaning simply use mild dish soap and water. This will further extend the already long life of your fence so it will last for years to come.
