As we begin a new year, many people are looking at their resolutions and thinking about how they can improve this year. There are so many things that we could work on improving in our lives, but one thing that might not cross your mind is upgrading your existing fences.

Making a fencing upgrade as part of your New Year’s resolution is a smart investment for the future. A well-maintained and attractive fence can add value to your property and provide numerous benefits.

By following these resolutions, you can keep your existing fence looking its best and prolong its lifespan, saving you the cost and hassle of having to replace it in the future.

Clean It Regularly

Aside from keeping your windows or roof clean, it’s important to remember that cleaning your fence regularly is a must. This will help prevent rust and other issues that could give you and your wallet hassle.

You should also check for any cracks or holes before they become bigger problems. Regularly cleaning your fence helps remove dirt and debris that can cause stains on the wood. Using a garden hose to simply spray it down will remove the dirt and debris and give the fence a fresh new look.

The thing is, you can’t deny that professional work has an extraordinary quality! You can avoid the hassle by getting help from the experts. If you’re in Brisbane, contact House Washing Experts for efficient and affordable pressure washing services like fence cleaning.

We don’t like to be dirty and shower off the dirt and grime every day! Existing fences don’t either so cleaning them regularly will help keep your fence looking new.

Make it a point to schedule regular cleaning and maintenance for your fence at least once a year to keep it looking fresh and new. This can include power washing, painting or staining, and making any necessary repairs.

Maintain It Regularly

It’s easy to forget how much work goes into maintaining a fence. However, regular maintenance will help prevent damage and extend its life.

Clean up leaves and other debris regularly. Remove weeds and grass clippings as soon as possible. Check for cracks and holes in wood posts. Replace damaged boards or rails.

Maintenance on a fence is no different than maintaining all the components in your home. With regular maintenance, costly repairs will be at a minimum. The longer a homeowner waits for the repairs the more costly it becomes as well as replacement may be their only option!

Check for pests, such as termites or carpenter ants, and address any infestations as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your fence.

Ensure Wood Fences Are Stained And Sealed

Staining and sealing your wood fence is an important part of maintaining it and keeping it looking its best. Staining and sealing can help protect your wood fence from the elements, including rain, snow, and sun. It can also help prevent damage from pests, such as termites and carpenter ants, and rot and decay.

Before staining or sealing your fence, make sure it’s clean. Use a pressure washer to remove dirt, grime, and stains, and let it dry completely. You can avoid the hassle by letting the professionals like House Washing Experts do the work for you.

Replace It When Necessary

You should also check your existing fences every few months to ensure it’s still safe and secure. This includes checking for any loose nails or screws. Removing leaves, vegetation, and overgrowth from the bottom of the fence. It’s also a good idea to inspect the wood posts for signs of rot.

Did you know if you have metal posts without the cap, they can rust and deteriorate? Why, because water can accumulate inside the post. It has nowhere else to drain and eventually the water will rust the post out and weaken it.
