You may have encountered a yard with a fence sagging or leaning to one side. This can make your yard look less attractive. There can be various reasons for such a problem, and being aware of the causes can help you take appropriate measures to prevent it from happening in your yard. Therefore, let’s take some time to discuss the potential causes of fence sagging.
Damage Caused by the Weather
When the weather becomes severe, it can significantly impact the condition of your fence. The added pressure due to intense weather conditions can cause the fence to tilt or lean. Once the first signs of damage appear, any subsequent storms will only worsen the situation and cause further harm to the fence.
Your Fence Has Low-Quality Hardware
It’s essential to use good quality hardware when constructing a fence, even if the fence material itself is of high quality. Using poor-quality hardware, such as rusty nails, can cause the fence to sag over time. This can lead to the fence boards shifting out of place, which can compromise the overall stability and integrity of the wall. Therefore, always avoid using poor-quality hardware when building a fence.
Your Fence Was Not Installed Properly
Constructing fences with solid foundations is necessary, or they will start to sag during stormy weather. If you notice a fence sagging soon after building it, it is likely due to a poor installation. The installation of a fence is affected by various factors, such as the soil, the fence type, and height. If you need your fence installed correctly, seeking advice from a professional installation company is best. They have years of experience and will know how to construct a fence in any terrain, regardless of the fencing material or the fence height. Many installation companies also offer warranties to protect you in case of an unsuccessful installation.
