A common question we get asked here at Kingsley Fencing by our customers is how can they make their fence last longer once installed?
Most customers are familiar with cheap fencing products that have failed them in the past.
These sort of low quality fencing products often let the customer down and are therefore low in quality. This is why many choose a professional fence that’s supplied and fitted by Kingsley Fencing instead.
Within this article we will examine how we can make your fence last longer.
Choose a fencing product that has a suitable wooden thickness
Some fencing products are made very cheaply indeed. This can mean that the wooden slats are incredibly thin sometimes. This can mean that they can sometimes last a short period of time that’s especially when subjected to our harsh winter conditions.
Therefore make sure to pick a fencing product that offers quality by having thicker wooden slats for example.
A good example of a fencing product that is recommend by us is the feather edge fencing system.
Make sure that your fence receives a good coat of wooden fencing treatment
Perhaps you have not got the time to paint your fence yourself. We can paint any fence within the Cardiff and Newport regions for you.
Painting your fence can make your fence last longer and also improve the appearance of your fence also.
Make sure you choose a fencing contractor who installs the fence posts correctly
One of the main reasons why a fence will fail is because the posts may have been dug to an insufficient depth.
That’s to say some fences may only have shallow holes dug for the fence posts. This can mean strong winds can sometimes mean the fence can be blown over.
We always dig deeper holes so that our fence posts are properly and sufficiently embedded within the earth.
Ensure that your fencing product has been properly treated before it gets installed
Sometimes some companies use wood for the construction of fences which is not suitable for outdoor weather conditions here in the U.K.
This may mean that wood can sometimes rot extremely quickly. This can also mean that the wood becomes so deteriorated that it will collapse.
This happens because the wood has not been specially treated and can therefore absorb water and moisture which means it can rot quickly.
Therefore make sure that you pick a fencing company that uses the right sort of wood that is meant for external use.
