Ah the welcome relief of cooler weather is here, fall has arrived! When the temperatures cool down from the dog days of summer many homeowners consider stepping outside to tackle their exterior projects Today our Katy fence company is going to share a few tips to help your fence stay in tip top shape.
Inspect Your Fence
Whether you have a wood, metal, aluminum, or vinyl fence you should walk the perimeter to check for any sign of damages. If you a have a cedar or pressure treated wood fence you want to be sure to check for any signs of wood rot. If you touch your fence and its soft in certain areas, has a musty odor, or certain areas of your fence look darker then you may want to call a Katy fence company to have a closer look as these are warning signs to be aware of. If you have an aluminum, metal, or wrought iron fence then you want to inspect if the fence has any rust spots. If there is evidence of rust, you can use a wire brush and a rust neutralizer to scrub it all away. We recommend a product labeled rust oleum.
Rake Leaves From Fence Line
If you have piles of leaves gathering around the vase f your fence you want to make sure they are discarded as leaves collect moisture which can cause a wooden fence to rot prematurely. If you have a vinyl fence the leaves can stain your pretty white picket fence.
If you have large trees keep the branches trimmed so they do not rub or bump into the fence causing scratches. If you have an aluminum fence, they do aid in preventing the fence from becoming damaged due to their 5 mm powder coating but still if a tree were to fall, they can bring your fence down or cause severe destruction. Our Katy fence company also offer removal, tree trimming, crown reduction, and stump grinding.
Wood Stain & Seal
With fall bringing less rain and humidity this is the prime time to consider having your wood fence stained and sealed. The stain add beauty where the sealer acts like a raincoat shielding your fence from moisture that causes wood rot. If you have a wrought iron fence, then consider painting it to keep it visually appealing and adding a rust inhibitor.
Once your fence is looking its best if its on a corner lot consider adding some Christmas lights to spruce it up for the pending holiday season. Our sister company Christmas Wonder Lights is Katy best choice for Christmas light installation in Katy.
