Is it time to replace your fence? Telltale signs your fence is beyond repair

There is no avoiding the fact that over time, your fencing is going to start looking a little worse for wear. This is simply what happens with anything that’s left out in the elements!

Timber, steel or aluminium—all fencing types will deteriorate to some degree as the years go by.

By ensuring you properly maintain your fencing and by having any issues repaired when they come up can help to extend the life of your fence. How do you know when it’s best to just replace your fence entirely?

Read below as our team of experts reveal some of the telltale signs that your fence is beyond repair and due for a replacement.

1. Storm Damage:

If your property has recently been hit by a damaging storm, it could be possible your fence is beyond repair and it’s time for a replacement. Here in Australia, it’s not uncommon for properties to experience the full brunt of wild weather including hail and damaging winds. If your fence has been there for a while already, it could end up with significant damage including broken panels, leaning or even falling over completely.

Other accidents such as falling trees or vehicle accidents may also occur which could potentially result in significant damage to your fencing. We always recommend if you’ve experienced an incident like this to contact a fencing expert to access the damage and recommend whether a repair or replacement is your best bet.

2. Broken/Missing Boards or Panels:

When it comes to timber fencing, panels of the fence will usually start to become loose and sometimes they will even fall out as time goes by. This can sometimes be a quick fix and a repair will do the job. However, if you’re noticing this is starting to become a regular occurrence, it could be a sign that you’re better off having the entire fence replaced.

This could potentially be the more affordable option down the track rather than constantly paying for repairs. Broken and loose panels can also be an issue for steel fences! The experts at Amazing Fencing are available to inspect your fencing issues and recommend what we believe is your best option—repair or replacement.

3. Leaning Fence:

If you notice your fence is starting to lean to one side, you should contact a professional as soon as possible. Not only are leaning fences an eyesore, but they can also be a big safety hazard. You don’t want your fence falling over completely and injuring someone!

Depending on what is causing the fence to lean and how significant the damage is, a repair could be possible. It’s usually more common that a leaning fence is a sign that a fence replacement is needed. Again, we recommend seeking the advice of a fencing professional to determine what your best option is.
