Inspect the Fence: Being proactive and conducting routine inspections is key to keeping your Superior Fence & Rail fencing looking great. Regularly inspect those posts and slats to make sure the fence is structurally sound, and if necessary, reinforce weakened posts. Additionally, repair any discoloration, weathering, rust or any other damages you may discover.
Clean the Fence: Cleaning your Superior Fence & Rail fence is essential to maintain its attractiveness. For light cleaning, use water with a mild detergent and a soft cloth or brush to gently scrub away dirt, debris, cobwebs, and other residue. For tougher stains, you can use a power washer. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Check for Pests: Insects, rodents, birds, and other wildlife can sometimes take up residence inside and underneath fences, potentially causing serious damage. Inspect your fence regularly for any signs of pests and take appropriate steps to remove them.
Perform Regular Maintenance: For fences made from wood and metal, complete any touch-up painting as necessary. Doing this regularly can not only help your fence remain visually appealing but can also help prolong the life of your fence.
Replace Damaged Parts: If you notice any parts of the fence that seem damaged or rotted, replace them as soon as possible. Rotten wood can be a sign of termites or other pest infestation, and loose or rusted metal can be a sign of damage as well.
