How to Protect and Prolong the Life of a Wooden Fence

You have new a new wooden fence installed, and you don't need to think about it again. What? If only life was so simple. Fences need to be cared for, just like any other wooden item in your yard. Over time, if you don't protect the fence from day one, it will rot and deteriorate. You want to prolong the life of a wooden fence, and protect your investment.

The answer lies in good rail and fence post protection. With Fence Armor® you'll be able to prolong the life of a wooden fence, protecting your investment. We put together this post as a guide to protect and prolong the life of a wooden fence.

What can damage a wooden fence?

You would be surprised at what can damage a wooden fence, such as:

Insect damage: Pests love to mulch on wood. If insects such as termites get into the wooden fence, they'll begin eating away at it. Over time the wood will weaken and need to be replaced.

Yard work: Yes, while you're taking care of your yard, you could be damaging your posts and fences. Lawnmowers and weed wackers cut away at a fence post over time. You may be doing this without even realizing it.

Weather: The weather is a major culprit when it comes to damaged fences. Wet or windy weather will damage fence posts and fences in general. If you're dealing with particularly damp weather, mold and wood rot become a concern.

If you do not prolong the life of a wooden fence, you will be looking at replacing it.

Replacing fencing is costly

Unprotected fences wear out long before their time. As the fence wears out, it'll sag or even just fall right over.

You want your yard to look good, so you will need to replace that fence sooner rather than later. A wooden fence replacement isn't going to come cheap, though. After all, the fencing business is worth $9 billion annually.

Does that sound like something you want to avoid? Of course you do, and this is why homeowners install fence post protection to prevent damage in the first place.

Fence Armor® products prolong the life of a wooden fence

You've already seen why your fences need fence post protection. Fence Armor® Post Guards ensure that your fence post will last for years to come. Let's take a closer look at what they can do.

Fence Armor breakdown

Excellent materials used in production: Fence Armor® Post Guards are all made with steel. You'll see some fence guard products are plastic, but they're not as strong as steel. Our Post Guards are perfect for strimmer protection and are made with a galvanized steel core to ensure that they will last for years to come. They won't rust, bend or warp, making them the best fence guard out there.

Better for the environment: Another benefit of using galvanized steel in fence guard production is for the environment. Steel reduces the number of harmful chemicals making their way into the atmosphere, making them much more eco-friendly. Every Fence Armor® Post Guard you buy to protect your wooden posts reduces the need for more posts from lumber mills, saving trees.

Designed with yard work in mind: The Fence Armor® Post Guard is designed with weed wacker protection in mind. The engineered design ensures that they reduce wear and tear on trimmers and lawnmowers and won't be damaged by the Post Guard. The rounded corners also ensure that the post has extra structural integrity, something you'll appreciate during bad weather.

The warranty has you covered: When you buy a Post Guard from Fence Armor®, you'll get a five-year warranty on each one. That's perfect for you, as you're covered no matter what happens. In the unlikely event it fails, you'll be covered. Having that warranty offers you a lot of peace of mind.

Designed with the weather in mind: Post Guards come in two pieces that fit together on the fence post. When the wood expands and contracts during weather changes, the Post Guard does as well. The Post Guard will stay in position for years and not come dislodged.

Your fences are an investment, so you want to protect them. Post Guards are just what you need to prolong the life of a wooden fence. Once you install Fence Armor® Post Guards, you'll see the difference they make.
