There is a popular saying that good fences make good neighbors, and while this may not be entirely true, a good fence does make a good property seem perfect. They can offer an aesthetic appeal not achievable through landscaping alone, and can offer unparalleled security and privacy, depending on your needs as a home or business owner. The harsh and dramatic Chicago weather can sometimes damage your fencing, especially over the brutal winter months. In some cases, the damage can be repaired by a reliable expert, and in other cases, the damage may be so bad that the fence will require complete replacement. Here are a few hints to tell you how to know when you’re in need of fence repair in Chicago.
Stubborn Rust On Wrought Iron
More often than not, rust can be removed from wrought iron with nothing more than a rust cleaner and some elbow grease. In some cases, however, the damage caused by the rust requires an expert approach. If this is the case, call in someone who can repair your fence before you consider complete replacement. If it is isolated damage, caused by a harsh winter while you and the family were away, you can save a lot of money by investing in repair over replacement, and you can ask your technician what you can do in the future to prevent such damage from occurring.
Holes In Chain Link
In some cases, you may find holes in our chain link fence. These can be caused by natural wear and tear, or may be the result of ill spirited interference. Regardless of the cause, a hole in your chain link fence will need to be fixed, and quickly, before the damage spreads to other links.
Wood is a fairly resilient material to use when constructing a fence, but it too may become subject to damage over the years. If you notice missing panels, or panels containing rotting wood, have them replaced immediately, before the security you once installed the fence to provide is lost or before the damage in the wood can spread to other panels in the fence.
