Fallen fence sections – It’s simple enough to replace a fallen fence section – the fence specialist will need to source and match the right materials in order to make the fence look uniform.
Rotting Wood – If the wood rot is minor then it’s possible to treat and sand the wood to remove the rot. However, if the damage is more severe then you maybe have to replace that section of food if not the whole fence.
Missing boards -Fencing pros have to source the correct materials to repair the boards. The location of the missing board/s also determines how much labour will be involved. It might be necessary to remove more boards to simply replace one.
Holes and cracks – Depending on the severity of the damage and the materials used, pros will have to patch the holes and cracks and refinish or repaint the fencing afterwards.
Sagging fence – Fence posts and section have the tendency to start sagging over time. In most cases, the sagging section is over replaced and not repaired.
