Winter is coming soon, so now is the time to check your wood fences and make sure they’re ready. A fence that is wobbly or showing signs of rust or mold now is not likely to survive the winter without needing a lot of work done in the spring. Take precautionary steps now to save yourself a hassle in the future. Best of all, maintaining your ornamental wood fences will have a great impact on your property value.
Inspect And Protect Your Fence
Take a walk along your wood fence and check for telltale signs of mold. Mold is a wood fence’s biggest enemy, and catching it early is the best way to save your fence. Any loose boards should not be a problem, as long as they are changed relatively soon. If the boards of your wood fence are mostly loose, you may need to consider installing a new fence. While you are outside raking leaves, make sure to rake leaves away from your wood fence. Leaves trap moisture and are great places for mold to grow. If you leave piles of leaves near your wood fence, the leaves could become stuck in the fence boards. If snow covers a pile of leaves, it creates ideal conditions for mold, so make sure that you finish all of your fall yard work before it snows! Finally, make sure that the posts of your fence are solid. Vinyl and wrought iron fences are good at handling heavy snowfalls, but delicate wood fences find it more difficult. Making sure that your posts are solid will help your wood fence shoulder the burden of a heavy snowfall this winter. You can also help by shoveling snow off your fence periodically.
