Your yard takes a beating from the rain, cold weather and snow that winter brings. The lawn, sidewalk patio and even your fence will show signs of some damage when it’s time to spruce up your outdoor living spaces for warm weather. Although spring doesn’t officially start until March 20th, it’s never too early to start preparing your yard for outdoor activity. You’ll need to revitalize your lawn and make it look green and lush again and ready your garden for spring blooms.
But you’ll also want to consider your fencing. Did any damage occur during the winter months due to inclement weather? Ice, rain, snow can ruin staining on a wood fence. Built-up moisture from rain and snow can rot wood unless its stained properly. Falling tree limbs can cause structural damage to wood fences. Soil that shifts during a spring thaw may make posts shift and threaten the structural integrity of your fence. All fences should be inspected after the long winter months, but wood fences are the most prone to cold weather problems. Contact one of your local fence contractors Dallas TX to examine your fences. They may need a repair, restaining or an overhaul, but it’s sometimes hard to tell just from looking at them. If you notice any boards or posts out of place on your wood fence, there are residential fence contractors Dallas TX that can repair or replace them quickly to prevent further damage. They will also check between boards for leaves or other fence-damaging debris. They’ll make sure that the cement footings are dirt and dust free to prevent cracking.
Other post-winter fence problems may include damage from rabbits, deer and other animals or infestation in knotholes in wood fences. Chain link fences can also sustain damage from animals burrowing near posts, the weight of too much snow or ice and falling tree branches. Remember to oil latches and hinges on your chain link fence after a long winter. Even sturdy metal gates and fences may become rusted or damaged from too much snow, ice or hail.
