Your existing wood fence has probably seen better days. Don’t wait until your homeowner’s association issues you with a citation. Likewise, don’t wait until county officials decide to fine you for not maintaining your fences. If you need to get a permit for your project, then now is the time to secure it. In the meantime, here are some reasons for replacing your current wooden fence.
The simplest way to replace your fence is to tear down the old one and put a new wooden fence in its place. Although many homeowners think this is a nifty weekend project that they can complete with help from friends, neighbors, and relatives, it’s not that simple. We do not recommend that you do it yourself. You should consult with an expert at building, installing, and replacing fences, no matter what material they are made of when you need one. Other fence types you can consider using include aluminum, steel, wrought iron, and of course, vinyl.
One advantage of a wooden fence is that it’s easy to care for; even so, after a while, they will need to go. What are some factors that you will need to take into account? Let’s find out.
Make Sure It Lasts
You will want to make sure that your wooden fence will continue to last. Even after you’ve prepared to move on, a new-looking wooden fence can entice new potential buyers to make an offer. Lousy weather and termite invasions can wear out your new wall, and at some point, you’ll probably want to choose a different type of fence-building materials.
Protect It Against Termites
With this in mind, you’ve got to do what you can to protect your replaced fence against termites moving in and making it their home instead. Other pests will attempt to burrow into your wooden walls, but they won’t be able to do this with any barriers made of metal. This will also help improve your curb appeal.
