As they say, all good things must come to an end. The problem: how do you know when the “end” is actually here? Your once beautiful fence is starting to show its age and you are not quite sure if it is time to move on or if you can salvage a few more years out of your fence. How do you know when you should replace your fence or just repair it?
The End is Near…Or is It?
Deciding whether to repair or to replace your vinyl fence depends on many factors:
Age is Nothing But a Number…and a Gauge for Fence Replacement
The average wood fence will last 20 years with regular maintenance. A vinyl fence can last much longer with regular maintenance. But once again we find those three simple words “with regular maintenance.” That is the key. Even vinyl fences, also known as low maintenance fences, require some maintenance. This is especially true when it comes to timely repairs.
Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego Your Damage?
When evaluating the condition of your fence, it is important to pay close attention to where the damage is located. Damage to pickets and panels are much easier to repair than damage to posts, which are the structural foundation for your entire fence.
Repair Costs Start Adding Up
If you take care of your fence, it will take care of you and your family for a very long time. However, there comes a point when repairs just aren’t cutting it anymore. When it seems like you are repairing your vinyl fence just about every weekend and those repair costs start adding up, it might make more sense financially to just replace the fence.
If you decide your old fence isn’t worth the time or money to repair, your best bet is to hire a knowledgeable vinyl fencing contractor, like Albaugh & Sons.
