Is your fence older and leaning over or are there pickets missing? Depending on the degree of damage and considering the age of your fence, a simple repair of the damaged section may do the trick or it may be time to replace your fence. The A and A Fence & Concrete professional staff can help you determine the best option.
Let’s examine what constitutes the need to repair or replace a wood fence for your home.
Deterioration of Your Wood Fence
Exposure to the elements such as sunlight and moisture over the years can cause wood fences to deteriorate, leading to mold, rot, warping and cracking.
One of the best ways to further the life of your fence is to treat the wood with a sealant that will help keep moisture out. The product we use is a sealant in which a tint has been added, that we refer to as stain. This provides not only protection, but adds beauty to your new fence as well. At A and A Fence & Concrete, we use a process in which we take each individual picket and dip it into the sealant allowing the sealant to penetrate the wood giving better overall protection. Our choice of sealant is Ready Seal, which helps seal out moisture while also providing protection against sunlight that often leads to drying and cracking.

Water Damage to Your Wood Fence
Moisture penetration of the wood pickets can take a significant toll on the structure and stability of your fence. Taking certain steps before and after installing your new fence can help to combat this issue.
One of the most beneficial and proactive approaches to protecting your fence against water damage is to seal it. Keeping your fence from making direct contact with the ground where moisture will wick into the pickets is another way to protect your fence from water damage. Be sure that foliage, such as vines aren’t allowed to grow on your fence. Eventually, this can affect the overall performance of the fence due to moisture which can cause rot, mold and weakening of the pickets. Adjusting your sprinkler heads so that they don’t spray the fence repeatedly may also help extend the life of your fence.
Sagging Gate Issues on Your Wood Fence
Does your gate sag? Do you have to pick it up to latch it or close it? Over time, high usage, weathering and ground movement can cause your gate to sag.
When installing a new gate, A and A Fence & Concrete offers an E-Z Brace to help prevent your wood gate from sagging. An E-Z Brace is an adjustable, metal brace that helps to add additional support to your walk gate. When there is ground movement, which can cause the gate to sag, the E-Z Brace can be adjusted to compensate for the shift.
