3 Easy Ways to Maintain the Appearance of Your Wooden Fence

For many homeowners who have chosen not to live in the big city, there’s a good chance you have a fence wrapped around your home. Between keeping pets safe and sound in the backyard to added privacy from neighbors walking by or even just overall appearance, many suburban homes are sure to have a fence wrapped around their home or property.

At Greenhill Fencing, Inc., we know how important the overall appearance of your fence is to your home. Aside from installing aluminum fencing in Bucks County, we also advise homeowners on how to maintain their fences. Keeping your fence looking brand new will help make your home look more appealing to anyone passing by. Anyone who has a classic wooden fence may want to follow these tips to keep it from not looking too outdated.

Give It A Fresh Seal

Since we’re located right outside of Philadelphia in Willow Grove, PA, we know how crazy the weather in this area can be. From the blazing hot heat in the summer to the “Can you believe how much snow is out there?” snowstorms in the winter, the weather in the Philadelphia area is truly something unique. One thing we get a lot throughout the whole year is rain. One way to protect your fence from all the rain we get is to apply a fresh coat of sealant. Sealant is used to prevent wooden pieces from being damaged or exposed to too much rain.

Break Out the Power Washer

Your fence is going to get dirty over time. There is nothing you can do to prevent it. Heavy winds and bad weather can make the debris and dirt on your fence really add up. Because of this, you should make an effort to clean your fence every now and then. A power washer is able to blast away a lot of the dirt that has accumulated on your fence over the past few seasons.

Don’t have a power washer? Maybe ask around to some of your neighbors. There’s a solid chance one will pop up. Don’t like talking to your neighbors? Many hardware stores around our area offer power washer rental for weekend work.

Don’t Be Afraid to Style It Up

After you have cleaned up your fence and given it a fresh coat of sealant, don’t be afraid to make your fence unique. Hanging flower pots and other types of hanging decor can really make your fence pop. With that in mind, it is important to not hang anything on your fence that has any heavy weight to it. If any season decorations are heavy, make sure not to decorate too early or let your decorations linger on past the holidays.
