I own a landscape supply company and have done fairly well over the years. Until recently, security was never an issue, but then, I had two thefts occur. Someone had stolen mulch and gravel from my supplies. I knew that it was time for me to get serious about increasing security to prevent it from happening a third time. I talked with a fencing contractor about what type of fencing would help improve security without taking away from the pleasant appearance of the grounds. My blog will tell you how we accomplished the increased security using a beautiful new fence.
A fence contractor is a specialist who works on fences, and they can both repair and restore fences. If you have a fence that isn't very old but needs some work, you can work on the fence to restore it and make it stronger. Fence contractors will let you know if you need to replace your fence or if a basic repair will be fine.
Here are signs you need to call fence contractors to repair your fence.
Your gates are swinging low or crooked
Your fence is likely uneven or swaying if your gates are not closing. A gate that is not working well is a sure sign that the supporting fence is not in its best condition. Your fence contractors will work out a strategy to repair your fence, and in the end, sometimes just fixing a gate can make the best difference in improving in your landscape.
Your fence posts are rotting
This is an issue for wooden fences mainly, but if your posts are rotted or worn out, then it's wise to give your fence contractors a call. This way, the fence can be supported with better posts and given new life. If you want to secure your fencing for years to come, support those fence posts and make sure they are strong and able to hold up for as long as your regular fence lasts.
Your fence is leaning
Most fences are placed in panels, or in the case of a chain link fence, via a long line of fencing secured to posts. Regardless of how you have your fence put up, if the fence itself is leaning, it's going to pull on the rest of the fence, even if the panels are not entirely connected. It's wise to call your fence contractors to come and restore the fencing and replace the fence panels that are failing.
To prevent leaning fence panels, it's best to keep fencing bare and not place items or plants on the fences (even vines and other climbing plants). You should also make sure to paint your wooden fence often and replace panels that are constantly exposed to the sun's rays. In the end, there are several ways you can prevent fencing issues and keep your fence healthy and strong. Your fence will allow you to have the best results and can give you years of healthy use if you take care of it.
