We take care of the heavy lifting so you can continue enjoying your outdoor spaces without worrying about your aging fence.

Process We Follow for Fence Maintenance

Initial Fence Inspection

The first step our fence maintenance technicians take is a comprehensive assessment of your existing fence. This allows us to document any issues and develop a custom maintenance plan tailored to your specific fence type, material, and level of damage.

During the inspection, our techs look for:

  • Loose or missing boards, pickets, posts
  • Rotting wood
  • Rusting or damaged hardware
  • Holes dug under the fence
  • Areas where the fence is leaning or unstable
  • Other weaknesses that may compromise security and safety

We also assess gates, latches and handles during the inspection to make sure entryways into your yard remain fully functional.

Fence Repair & Reinforcement

Once we’ve completed a thorough inspection, our team moves into the fence repair process. This involves:

Replacing Damaged Areas – We remove and replace any rotten wood, damaged pickets, loose posts, missing boards, deteriorated gates, and other problematic areas of your fence. Our technicians bring extra materials and hardware for onsite repairs.

Sturdying Weak Sections – Fence posts and supporting structures that are leaning are reinforced and restrengthened. This keeps your fence upright, stable and secure.

Securing Entry Points – Any areas where animals have dug under your fence are filled in and fortified to prevent future breaches. Gates are realigned and hardened.

Hardware Replacement – Old rusty screws, bolts, nails and other hardware are swapped out with weather resistant fasteners built to stand the test of time.

Fence Cleaning & Sealing

Once structural repairs have been completed, our team does a deep clean of fence surfaces and applies protective sealants:

Pressure Washing – We use commercial grade pressure washers to lift away built-up dirt, mildew stains, pollen and other grime so your fence looks like new again.

Brush Clearing – Overgrown vegetation is cleared away from both sides of your fence so future growth doesn’t cause damage or leaning issues.

Sealing & Staining – After drying, we apply high quality sealing products specifically designed for your fence material – whether wood, vinyl, chain link or other. Sealants protect against moisture, pests, mold and extend the lifespan of fence components. Stains can refresh the color too.

Ongoing Fence Maintenance

Once repairs are finished, we provide customers with a customized ongoing fence maintenance plan built around their specific needs and budget. This prevents future wear and tear from getting out of control between service calls.

We offer schedule maintenance visits on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis including minor repairs, pressure washing, vegetation clearing, sealing/staining and hardware checks. Just give us a call to start your recurring maintenance plan!

Cost of Fence Maintenance in Athens, GA

The cost of fence maintenance and repair services depends on a few factors:

  • Type of fencing material (wood, chain link, vinyl, etc.)

FAQs About Fence Maintenance in Athens, GA

How often should fence maintenance be done?

We recommend inspecting wood and vinyl fences at least twice per year – early spring and late fall. Catching minor wear early keeps costs down. Annual pressure washing and sealing is advised as well. Chain link fences need less frequent attention, but still require periodic inspection and upkeep.

What are signs my fence needs maintenance or repair?

Indications your fence needs servicing include – loose/broken boards and posts, wood rot, rust on chain link fences, breaches from animals digging underneath, accumulation of dirt/grime, overgrown vegetation causing strain and damage, leaning/unstable sections, and problems with gates not closing/latching.

Should my entire fence be replaced or can it be repaired?

In many cases, fences don’t need to be fully replaced – just strategic repairs and maintenance. Our technicians evaluate which sections can be fixed vs require replacement during the inspection process. We always aim to keep replacement costs minimal if possible through repair.

How long does a typical fence maintenance visit take?

A standard maintenance call includes the inspection, repairing small sections of damage, pressure washing all surfaces, clearing vegetation, and applying protective sealants. This takes 2-3 hours depending on the size of your fence line. Extra repair work adds time.

How soon after cleaning can I seal or stain my wood fence?

We recommend allowing 2-3 days of dry time before sealing or staining wood fences after power washing. The moisture content must drop to 15% or below so the wood absorbs the protective coatings. Sealing too soon can cause peeling or ineffective protection.

Does fence maintenance add value to my property?

Yes! Well maintained fences that are clean, stable, and uniform in appearance can increase curb appeal. Fences in disrepair can turn off potential home buyers. Ongoing maintenance also prevents having to fully replace fences as often – saving you big expense over the years.

Why does my wood fence turn gray and how can I fix it?

Wood fences turn gray due to moisture absorption, sun exposure, and weathering of the top surface over years. Our technicians use commercial grade cleaners and power washing to remove the grayed dull color and revive the natural wood tones. Follow up application of UV-resistant stains or seals helps prevent recurrence.

What is the best way to clean a vinyl fence?

Vinyl fence cleaning requires gentler techniques than wood fences. Avoid high pressure washers as they could damage softer vinyl material. We use lower pressure rinsers with specialty vinyl fence cleaners to lift dirt and buildup. Soft brush scrubbing also helps restore vinyl’s original appearance without risk of surface marring.

How often should chain link fences be maintained?

Chain link requires less frequent maintenance than wood privacy fences – but still needs periodic care. We recommend having chain link fences professionally inspected and tightened at least every 2-3 years. Twice annual vegetation clearing underneath is also advised to prevent strain on the mesh. Annual power washing keeps chain link looking clean.

What are my payment options for fence maintenance services?

We offer flexible payment options including all major credit cards, checks, mobile pay apps including Apple Pay and Google Pay. Senior and military discounts may also be available. Ask our team! We also offer financing plans through trusted partners if needed.
