How to Maintain the Appearance of Your Wooden Fence
A wooden fence can be a beautiful addition to any yard, as long as it is well-maintained. If a fence goes untreated, it can ultimately affect the attractiveness of the entire yard. There are many things a homeowner can do to maintain the appearance of their wooden fence.
Here are four tips on how to keep your fence looking beautiful:
Pressure wash your fence regularly
When exposed to the elements, a wooden fence can collect unwanted residue that is difficult to remove and ultimately dulls its appearance. Using a pressure washer to clean your fence is effective in removing even the toughest grime.
Paint or touch-up your fence
As a wooden fence ages, it is likely that its paint will begin to peel or chip off. Chipped paint will not affect the foundation or security of your fence but will affect its attractiveness. Most inexpensive wood paints can last up to a year.
Implement termite prevention
A termite infestation can ruin the foundation and solidity of your fence. Having a professional come to your home to treat your fence with the necessary chemicals or solutions could be beneficial in securing and maintaining the appearance of your fence.
Treat your wood with a sealant
Every time it rains, your wooden fence is at risk of water damage. Over time, enough water damage can cause rotting. To prevent your fence from rotting, you should apply a water-resistant sealant at least once a year.
