If you’re a homeowner, it’s important to keep every feature of your home in excellent condition to preserve its value and improve your daily experience. If you’re not quite sure when your backyard fence should be repaired, keep an eye out for the following signs that it’s time to bring in a contractor for fence improvements. 

1. Sagging

For a fence to serve its purpose of keeping unwanted visitors out while keeping children and pets safely contained within the yard, it needs to be strong and durable. If you’ve noticed that your fence appears to be sagging from wear and tear, call your contractor. 

2. Splitting Boards

Wood is the most common material for the standard backyard privacy fence, but this material tends to split or splinter after a few years of wind and weather damage. Split boards are harmful to the integrity of your fence, so it’s always a wise choice to call your fence repair company when more than a few boards are showing signs of damage. 

3. Rot or Insect Damage

Rot from rain and insect damage are detrimental to your fence, and should be replaced as soon as possible to prevent further deterioration. Even treated wood can sustain rot from excess moisture or exposure to insects, but this is especially over the course of several years.
