How to Take Care of Your Fence

Whether you have just installed a new fence or have owned one for a decade, maintaining it is a critical priority. It is best to formulate a plan for your fence to ensure that it stays in good shape. Fortunately, we have outlined the cleaning to-do’s you can take note of depending on your fence type. 

Vinyl Fence Maintenance

Vinyl fencing is low maintenance while withstanding age and the elements. This material doesn’t warp, and its color doesn’t fade despite prolonged sunlight exposure. Moreover, because vinyl is less rigid than wood, you won’t also have to worry about snapping. This type only needs occasional cleaning with the use of basic household items. 

Ornamental Aluminum Fence Maintenance

This material does not always need a repaint and does not rust. However, scratches, peeling and scrapes are still possible. These are the primary reasons why keeping your coats intact is essential. If you want to preserve this beauty and aesthetic, you’ll want to do all that you can to prevent any rust or corrosion issues from ever occurring.

Chain Link Fence Maintenance

Chains are susceptible to wear and tear, dirt and rust. Should you see any of these, a simple cleaning should suffice. For light debris or dirt, a quick hose down is all you’ll need. You can also use soapy dishwater in an outdoor pump sprayer for tougher stains. Let the solution sit on the fence for at least 10 minutes before rinsing it off.

Whether you have home improvement projects or general home maintenance needs, you can count on Handyman Connection® of Mason to deliver quality workmanship and superior customer service. Contact us at (513) 733-3777, or get an estimate here.
