Whether you’re trying to keep in pets, keep out solicitors, or simply enhance your property’s appearance, a fence is always a great option. Chain link, wire, and iron fences require regular maintenance to remain in top condition all the time. Take the following steps to preserve your fencing for many years to come and become a caring fence owner.

Tips for a caring fence owner

Take protective measures

Apply a coat of wax to the fence to minimize rust spots. If your fencing is in close proximity to a pool, apply a protective sealant as well to further protect the fence against rust damage.

Protective Measures

Clean the fence

Fill a large bucket with warm water and add a small squirt of liquid dish detergent. Clean away any dirt and rust spots. Use a toothbrush to get into the hard to reach areas. Rinse the fencing with water, and let it dry completely.

Inspect the fence periodically

Check your fence and gates on a regular basis, watching for loose or unstable footings, cracks, signs of rust, and other damage. If you’ve painted your fence, look for paint chips as well. Address any damage that you find in a timely fashion.

Repair rust damage

The sooner you take care of rust damage, the easier it is to repair. Use steel wool or sandpaper to remove rust. Then apply a layer of wax to halt corrosion. If you’ve painted your fence, touch up the paint job as needed to limit rust spots.

Fix bent sections

From time to time, you may bend part of your fence on accident. Take a blowtorch to heat the bent sections, and then hammer them back in place. Use caution while operating power tools. If the damage is severe, hire a professional fencing company for repairs.
