Your wood fence will start to sag, rot, and decay without the proper care and attention. Now that the weather is starting to get better, you don’t want your wood fence to drag down your home’s curb appeal. Luckily, there’s an easy way to prevent that. Here are some tips to help keep your fence looking great all spring long.
Deal with Mold
Dealing with mold and its close cousin mildew isn’t hard as you might imagine. Grab your power washer and carefully rinse your fence down so you don’t leave any lasting damage. You might think that higher pressure will bring with it a better-looking fence, but you don’t know that for sure.
Fix Posts and Pickets
Your wood fence won’t be the same without sturdy posts and pickets to support all of that weight. If they’ve come loose, then you might need to think about adding some concrete to increase their stability. However, in case the damage is too extensive, you’re better off just replacing the entire structure.
Repair the Gates
Gates allow you to access different parts of your yard without having to jump over any barriers. Then again, that might be your only option if your gates can’t open and close. If your gates keep getting stuck, then it could be another sign they are in dire need of repairs. Repairing and repainting your wood fence are both critical parts of making sure your fence looks as incredible as the day you first had it installed.
Repaint Your Wood Fence
Lastly, take some time to give your wood fence a quick facelift. All you need to do to accomplish this is get a fresh coat of paint on it. Pressure washing will help it look better, but be sure you don’t paint when it’s too cold outside. Also, make sure you don’t decide to start painting on a day you can expect high winds.
