Common Fence Problems And How To Fix Them

Family & Parenting
Because of the poor condition of the economy, a lot of people are trying hard to keep their money inside their pockets. So, instead of buying newer properties, a lot of people opt to embark on useful and cost-efficient home improvement projects. A damaged fence is one of the most common repairs that homeowners deal with in early spring. If you are planning on fixing your fence as part of your home improvement project, keep reading for some useful tips to help you get started.

The first thing you want to make sure when repairing your fence is to have all safety tools ready. Materials such as safety glasses, working gloves, hard boots are among the safety materials you will need to get the work done safely. You can also go to the local hardware or home improvement store and ask for the proper safety gears needed for fence repair.

You also need to gather all your materials for your fence repair project before getting started. This will ensure that you won't have to stop in the middle of your repair work just to run to the nearest hardware store to get something you forgot you needed. Prepare a list of all the materials you will need and make sure you have everything on that list before getting started.

Loose nails - Some DIY homeowners simply use common nails to fix loose boards. But it is better to use aluminum or galvanized nails because they are more durable and resistant to rust. To protect you from flying chips, don't forget to wear your goggles when pounding nails. Drive the nails at a slight angle for a stronger grip in the wood. If you are driving two nails in the same board, it is best to slightly angle the nails toward each other.

Broken gate latch - Get two small boards and nail them on both sides of the latch hole. The latch will work against the two boards and will make a strong connection that is just as secure as the original latch.

Missing board - If your wooden fence has any missing parts, then you need to replace the missing portions with the same type of material to match the entire fence. If the fence has been stained or painted, your replacement boards should be pressure-treated and finished to match your existing wood.

Rotting board - Rot is one of the biggest enemies of wooden fences. If your posts weren't properly pressure treated, they are likely to rot at ground level. Carefully inspect each post a and pay close attention to the bottom rails. When you discover a problem, fix it right away before the rot spreads. You don't need to replace the entire post if the rotted part is just a small portion of the board. If most of the upper body of the post hasn't been affected by the rot, then you can just dig out the rotted part and give the top a new pressure-treated base.

Sagging post - In order to correct a sagging post dig out the ground that surrounds it, then temporarily put the post in a plumb position. Pour a generous amount of concrete collar around the sagging post.
