Protect Your Fence Posts

There are many things that can damage your wooden fence posts, such as spades, animals and water, but nothing causes more harm than a weed trimmer. If the surface treatment on a post is damaged by a line trimmer, it can absorb and trap water that can cause the fence post to rot. This is especially a problem in wet climates, where decay can set in quickly after the surface is breached. It can also give easier access to insects as the integrity of the post fails. This can lead to replacement of one or more of your fence posts. If matching replacement posts can't be found, you may have to replace the entire fence.

Weed Wackers

Commercial landscapers often use high powered gas trimmers composed of metal blades. These trimmers can induce serious damaging to a fence post in a short amount of time. Even trimmers that use materials such as nylon as a blade can damage a post's surface over time, notably by allowing water to seep in and begin the rotting process. Fence Armor will protect your fence from this kind of damage. A fence is a time and money consuming expense, so fence protection should be a top priority to insure the lifespan of your investment. A little money up front can represent huge savings in the long run. Save your fence posts: Fence Armor is the best defence for your fence.

Fence Types

Fences come in many different shapes, sizes, and materials. Fence Armor has options for almost any fence configuration.

Armor For Wooden Fences

Wood fences come in a variety of sizes and require protectors to be permanently attached to be effective. Wooden fence posts come in a variety of sizes from 3.5x3.5" to 7.5x7.5" and every size in between in 0.5" increments. There are also aesthetic wood finish coatings available to blend in with the rest of the fence.

Armor For Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fences fall into a similar category as wood in terms of sizes, and the fence protectors are normally permanently attached with a screw. Post protectors for these normally come in 4x4", 5x5" and 6x6" sizes, so be careful to order the right size. They also come in a variety of colors to match different preferences.

Armor For Metal Fences

Metal fences are a bit different. Metal posts usually need a sleeve to protect them since they do not normally require a permanent fence guard attached, even though they usually do become permanent once installed. Fence post protector sleeves can clip on to a variety of fence post sizes. They can be easily removed if you have any fence post maintenance to do, which can be handy in situations with removable posts for easy access. The sizes range from 1.5x1.5" to 3x3" in 0.5" increments to match almost any metal fence post.

No matter what type of fence you have, Fence Armor has you covered. We offer a wide range of color options and sizes to suit almost every fence protection need. If you've made a considerable investment into a fence then you owe it to yourself to protect that investment. Preventative measures like sealant and caps along with a good base protector like Fence Armor will ensure that your fence will stay looking its best for many years to come.

3 Ways To Protect Your Wooden Fence

First you need to seal the wood using a good quality sealant or paint. You should expect to apply this sealant or paint every 2 years. It will keep the fence looking bright and new and it will continue to protect the fence against weather and pests.

The second thing you need to do is protect the bottom of the fence posts with a good quality fence protection product like Fence Armor. They're inexpensive, will last as long as the fence, and come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors to match almost all fence types.

The third and final thing you need to do is cover the top of each post with a cap of your choice. This will protect the posts against weather damage and also gives you a selection of different styles.

Protecting your fence is the last and most important thing you'll do to it. You need to seal it and protect the bottom and top of the posts against yard work tools and pests. There are other fence post covers and sleeves marketed under different names, but we believe Fence Armor post protectors do the best job at preventing damage and blending into the natural beauty of your fence.
