Bringing fence posts back to life is possible. Good news for those of you who have an old fence that needs a bit of care. There is not any need to replace an old fence when all it needs is a bit of maintenance.
“What am I going to do about the old fence?” asked a caller to Fence Armor® recently. They knew it was looking a bit shabby and wanted a better fence before the summer. The summer and fall months are when family and friends call to the home. You don’t want them looking at your fence thinking, ‘Mike’s fence is looking bad.’
Bringing fence posts back to life is the best way to save your fence. You can even add a bit of curb value to the home at the same time. The posts are what keep the fence standing. Look after them, and you will get many years of life from your fence.
A list of steps for bringing fence posts back to life includes:
- Stain & Seal Experts products are the first step
- Bringing fence posts back to life with Post Guards
- Fence post caps top off the work
- Keep to the maintenance schedule
Let’s take a closer look at each point.
Stain & Seal Experts products are the first step
Wood needs looking after, and you need to do it annually. The beautiful grain and color of the wood will fade under the summer sun and winter storms. If you ignore the wood, it will quickly drain of life. Wood posts left untreated will soon become home to mildew, fungi, and termites.
At Fence Armor® we stock Stain & Seal Experts products because we believe in quality. We know the benefits of applying a quality product to your fence and how much it will improve the wood. With Stain & Seal Experts you are getting a professional-level product that goes on with ease.
Bringing fence posts back to life is simple with Stain & Seal Experts products. You will see the quality of the grain and the beauty of the wood again. The fence is ready for the summer and winter, and the posts look like new.
Bringing fence posts back to life with Post Guards
Grass, weeds, and flowers will quickly grow around your fence posts. The area will look untidy and take away from your lovely garden. Your first option is always to get the trimmer out and cut them away.
Of course, trimmers and weed wackers cut the wood and vinyl fence posts too. All those cuts and nicks do long-term damage. In a few years, the posts will look terrible and may even be in danger of cracking.
Fence Armor® Post Guards protect your fence posts from day one. They are easy to fit and are made of American stainless steel. Post Guards fit around the foot of your fence posts, just where the trimmer hits the wood and vinyl. Cuts, nicks, and chip damage will become a thing of the past.
If you are looking to get a long life from your fence posts, then Fence Armor® is the answer.
Fence post caps top off the work
Do your fence posts look a bit bare? Do they look like they could do with something to give them a bit of a lift? Are you thinking of bringing fence posts back to life and are searching for ideas?
If you are nodding to any or all three questions, then the answers are close to hand.
Fence Armor® post caps and finials give you plenty of decorative options for bringing fence posts back to life. You can choose an always elegant fence and deck post cap to top off your posts. Our innovative method for attaching the caps makes the work easy and secure. Once they are in place, the fence post caps will stay there and give you many years of service.
Why not add a finial or two to the fence post caps? Our range includes the classic Fleur de Lis and the beautiful Hops style. We even have the very popular Texas Lone Star Lasso for Texans looking to finish off the fence with a bit of home. The Acorn Flag finial allows you to fly mini-flags on big days and the small ones too.
Keep to the maintenance schedule
Prevention is always the best cure. By taking good care of your fence posts from day one, you will get a long life from your posts, guaranteed.
A good maintenance schedule is vital to caring for the fence posts.
Bringing fence posts back to life is easy when the posts are already in good shape. Each year you should do a detailed inspection of the fence and posts. Take a walk along the fence line and look for cracks, storm damage, and insect infestation. Repair any damage you find and replace broken rails and posts.
Always follow the steps above to keep your fence looking good. A good coat of Stain & Seal Experts products, installing Fence Armor® Post Guards, and attaching post caps will make your fence the pride of the neighborhood.
By keeping on top of the maintenance, there will be less to do each year.
