So, what type of fence requires maintenance?
- Wood Fences – While all the other fences listed above are not damaged by water contact and do not fade heavily due to the sun. Cedar, Redwood, and other types of natural wood fences require more maintenance. Many people do not mind this extra inconvenience because the beauty the fence adds to the property is well worth it, in their eyes. But not everyone is the same.
Wood Fence Maintenance
After a wood fence is installed, if you do not want it to darken to a gray it will need to be sealed, stained or painted with the appropriate product. And every three years after that another coat will need to be applied. It is also recommended that sprinklers and other forms of liquid have the least amount of contact with the fence as possible. All wood fences slowly rot, change in color and weather in time, especially when not properly maintained.
