Our expert and skillful technicians are capable of completing many different fencing related tasks. Whether you want to replace your chain link fence with wrought iron or need to refinish your wood fencing, we can help.
Our team can install a variety of fencing, this includes:
- Wood: Wood fencing is attractive, eco-friendly and durable. With proper care and maintenance, wood fencing can last decades.
- Vinyl: If you would prefer not to have a wood fence, vinyl may be the right option for you. Available in several colors and styles, vinyl fencing also won’t splinter like wood fencing.
- PVC: PVC fences are very durable. They are also a great choice for homeowners who want a fence that requires minimal maintenance.
- Wrought Iron: While wood and vinyl fencing are strong, wrought iron is by far the most durable variety of fencing. It also creates a very elegant and upscale look for your property.
- Aluminum: Aluminum fences are very versatile and can be adjusted to fit your landscaping requirements. It also comes in a variety of colors and styles.
It might seem like once you’ve built a fence it’s going to stay there forever, but the reality is that fences require maintenance. Proper fence maintenance will ensure that your fence lasts for a long time, continues to look aesthetically appealing, and that you can troubleshoot any issues before they escalate.
Our courteous and professional Frisco fence installation and repair team can assist your fence maintenance needs by:
- Removing debris, weeds and rocks from around the fence perimeter.
- Correcting wood fences with boards that touch the ground. Wood fencing that has contact with the ground could absorb moisture and rot.
- Using insecticide to prevent ants and termites from damaging wood fencing.
- Providing power washing services to deep clean your vinyl and PVC fencing once a year.
- Remove peeling or flaking paint and refinish the surface of your fence with a new coat.
- Sand down and re-stain wood fencing that is looking weathered.
- Repair broken boards, loose hinges and damaged posts before they injure your family or pets.
Fence Gate Installation
Perhaps your fence is in great condition, but your gate is damaged, or you are looking to install a different kind of gate for added security. Whatever the case, our Frisco fence installation experts can help. We can install many different kinds of gates:
- Single-door gate: This is the most standard type of gate. Built in the same style as your fence, single door gates typically admit people and are characterized by a diagonal brace.
- Swing gates: Swing gates are available in single or double-door construction. They are particularly effective at preventing vehicles from coming into your property.
- Cantilever gates: If you don’t have a lot of space in your community to accommodate a gate that swings open, consider a sliding gate. Cantilever gates slide open using rollers and appear to be “free floating.”
- Rolling gates: Rolling gates slide open using a track and wheel system embedded on the base.
- Double gates: Double gates are best for enabling vehicles or large equipment—such as landscaping equipment—to enter your property. If you need a double gate, consider also getting a smaller, single-door gate for people to enter more easily onto your property.
Should You Replace or Repair Your Fence?
When you notice signs of damage to your fence, it can be difficult to know if it’s best to repair these areas or to replace the fence entirely. When deciding whether you need to call our Frisco fence installation and repair experts, consider the following:
Common Wood Fence Issues
Since wood is a natural material, it can be more affected by climate and weather, insects, moisture and other environmental impacts. The main indicators that your wood fence needs to be repaired are:
- Warping wood
However, if your fence is severely warped, damaged or rotting, then it will need to be replaced entirely.
The best way to prevent your wood fence from damage is to call the pros at Mr. Handyman Frisco to update your fence’s finishing regularly—whether it is painted or stained—and to repair any cracked or warped panels as quickly as possible. To inquire about repairing or replacing your wood fence, give our experts a call.
Common Vinyl/PVC Fence Issues
Typically, vinyl and PVC fencing requires very little maintenance to prevent it from damaging. Yet, these materials do need annual cleaning. The best option to keep your vinyl or PVC fence clean is to hire the power washing services at Mr. Handyman Frisco.
However, vinyl/PVC fencing are not immune to damage—especially if impacted by significant weight like being hit with large debris, equipment or vehicles. This may cause severe damage or cracking, which isn’t something that can be effectively repaired. Rather, the damaged areas will need to be replaced by our skillful Frisco fence installation technicians.
Common Aluminum Fence Issues
Although aluminum is a very strong material, it may need to be replaced if an accident should happen—similar to vinyl or PVC fencing. However, a particular issue affecting aluminum fences is soil erosion. While shifting soil won’t damage your aluminum fence, it will cause the posts to become loose. The best solution to secure loose or wobbling aluminum fence posts is to add more soil or gravel to the section of fence affected.
Common Wrought Iron Fence Issues
The primary problem affecting wrought iron fencing is rust and corrosion. Rust is generally caused by:
- Chipped paint
- Rain and humidity
- Dirt and plant growth
Aside from obvious red rust spots, there are a few other signs that indicate your wrought iron fence is corroding, including:
- Staining along masonry surfaces that touch the fence
- Cracks in masonry that the iron fence is attached to
- Sagging in the fence
- Squeaking gates
What repairs you will need for a rusty wrought iron fence will depend on how bad it rusted. For instance, a small rust spot can be scrubbed away with a wire brush and repainted. However, for more serious damage like a bent post, you will need professional help. If you are unsure as to how badly damaged your wrought iron fence is, contact us online to request a service today.
