Does your fence have water damage? In Virginia, bad weather can happen in an instant. In fact, heavy rain and severe downpours are all too common. If the storm is particularly powerful, it can leave a significant impact on your home and fence. The reality is, water damage is incredibly common among fences. Recognizing the telltale signs associated with a water-damaged fence can make all the difference. Here are the signs and symptoms all homeowners should be aware of to ensure their fence is healthy throughout the years.
Mold Is All Too Common
Too much water can ultimately create a breeding ground for mold. This really means that water-damaged fences will have mold growing which can indicate severe water damage. The reality is, if mold isn’t immediately addressed, it can be a devastating problem and completely ruin the health of your fence. In fact, mold can even be a severe allergen leaving you and your family vulnerable to health issues down the line.
Your Fence Has Fallen
A fallen fence is another symptom of water damage. In fact, whether it’s the results of gale-force wind or insect infestations, a fallen fence is a surefire sign your fence has significant water damage. The biggest issue that people will face with a fallen fence is their home’s compromised security. Though many fence structures can be decorative, they are often used as a wonderful way to protect a home from outside elements. A fallen fence can compromise that security and protection, thereby leaving your home and property vulnerable to the outdoor elements.
Weakened Fencing Structure
When severe thunderstorms roll through your neighborhood, the integrity of your fence could be compromised. Each fence is built with a certain amount of strength inherent in the material itself. When a fence’s infrastructure is endangered, the strength of the fence itself diminishes. Ultimately, insects can get into your home with a fence’s structure being compromised, which could be a severe problem down the line.
