If you’ve lived in your home for a while now, you probably noticed that your fence isn’t the same color as it used to be. What was once a golden or hued maple fence is now grey and worn. Time and weather have done it’s worst. You might be thinking you need to replace your entire fence (especially if it’s moldy), but wood has a magic to it. Here are some reasons why you should restore, and not replace, your fence.
Increase Your Fence's Lifespan
If your fence is discolored or moldy, you will want to restore it soon to maintain its structural integrity. Although replacing your fence might not be necessary now, if you prolong restoring it, it could begin to rot away and fall apart. Pressure washing your fence while the wood still has strength and stability can give it new life, and therefore a longer life.
Maintaining Your Fence's Color
Pressure washing you fence not only removes dirt and debris from within the wood grain of your fence, but it also opens up the grain a bit and allows it to breathe. This process restores the original color of the wood grain and makes it look much more like it did when the fence was first installed. This color is the backdrop you want to stain your fence on. Pressure washing your fence also allows the stain to be adequately absorbed by the wood grain, so your restoration job will last longer and won’t prematurely fail.
A new fence is expensive, but restoring a fence can be much more cost-effective, even if you hire experts to do it for you. But if the value of your property is rising, you don’t want to cut down on your investment return by throwing money into large projects. Hiring a pressure washer to do some of the heavy lifting and then finishing the restoration job yourself can save you some time, and some money. It’s a win-win!
