Signs That It's Time to Replace Your Fence

Have you been looking out the window at your old, dilapidated fence and wondering if you need a fence replacement? The truth is that if you've started wondering, you probably do need a new fence.

In this article, we're discussing some of the main reasons why you should consider this important option for your home right away. Keep reading to learn more.

5 Important Reasons For Fence Replacement


Fence replacement cost is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you start to weigh your options. Yes, you could probably stain the fence and get a few more years out of it if it's composed of wood. But, if it's vinyl and damaged, there's not much you can do to make it look new again.

The cost to replace a wood fence is not as much as you might think. And, while replacing a vinyl fence might seem expensive, it's really not when you factor in the reasons you're replacing the fence in the first place such as the following:

  1. The Fence is Leaning

    If your fence is leaning, it's not really serving the purpose of keeping intruders and others out of your yard. If you're tired of shooing the neighbour's dog out of your yard 10 times per week, it's probably time to replace your fence and keep him out for good.

  2. The Fence is Damaged

    The same goes for a damaged fence. Not only will animals and other intruders have easy access to your yard, depending on the damage, but it's also an eyesore for the neighbours, not to mention that it could draw your property value down. A damaged fence is susceptible to further damage and on a windy or stormy day, it could cause damage to your neighbour's yard which could add up in terms of cost quite quickly if you're not careful.

  3. Too Expensive to Repair

    Repairing the fence is one option, however, this too can be costly. When it's too expensive to repair your fence for what it's worth, it's time to consider a replacement. You'll actually save money in the long run because once your new fence is installed, all the costs involved with repair are out the window and all you'll be responsible for is maintenance.

  4. It Doesn't Protect Your Property

    A damaged fence allows more than just dogs and intruders into your yard. Remember that stormy, windy day? The neighbour's tree sheds just as much if not more than your own and the debris from storms is more likely to end up in your yard without proper fencing to protect your yard.

    Not to mention that your gazebo, kids' installations, etc. could get blown away or damaged if you don't have a fence to protect them.

  5. You're Ready For Something New

    Even if your fence is not damaged, you may just be ready for a better fence, or just a new fence. Maybe you currently have chain link fencing and you're dreaming of that white picket fence that you used in all your drawings as a kid. Then, it's time to go ahead and replace it with the brand new fence you’ve always dreamed of.
