Today we've got Denver/Colorado Springs fence repair on our mind.  Having a fence is a great benefit to your home. It provides security, can help to increase the value of your home, and is a great way to keep children and pets from leaving the property.

First off, if your fence is out of commission or has any damages, we recommend you have a local Denver/Colorado Springs fence company take a look at your fence and assess the damage.

A qualified Colorado fence contractor will be able to tell you if the fence needs to be replaced or if a repair will suffice. It’s important to get an issue fixed as quickly as possible, especially in Denver and Colorado Springs where unpredictable weather can cause repairable damage to turn into a complete replacement.

Colorado Fence Repair vs Fence Replacement

Deciding whether or not you should repair or replace your fence is the biggest issue you’ll face when it comes to your Denver or Colorado Springs fence repair. There are a few factors to keep in mind when you’re contemplating this to help you save money long term while still getting the service you need.

Fence repairs tend to be more affordable and less complicated than a complete replacement, however not all fence damage is best fixed with a repair.

If the repair options presented to you be your fence contractor are going to be a daunting task or you don’t like the fence you have in the first place, a fence replacement is a great option. Opting to build a new fence will allow you to pick out a fence that you truly love. If you have to replace more than 20 percent of the fence, talk to your contractor about a replacement.

Replacing a fence can sometimes be more difficult or expensive though. When you replace an entire fence, the company must dig out the posts, make sure your replacement will work well, and work on the ground if the previous fence left unnecessary cement for mounting. In these cases, repairing the damaged part could prove to be easier and make more sense. If your fence isn’t very old, has minimal damage, and you like the way it looks, having a fence repair rather than a replacement will save you money, time, and probably a few headaches, too!

Avoid Further Fence Damage

Depending on what type of fence you have, a fence repair can get costly, so it’s important to maintain your fence to the best of your abilities. Fences like wrought iron fences or ones that have intricate details can be costly whether you’re repairing or replacing, so taking care of them as best as possible is the cheapest and wisest thing to do.

It’s not always fun cleaning or maintaining a fence, but it is cheaper than having to repair or replace the fence often. If you’re not sure what you need to do in order to keep your fence looking good and in working order, contact a Denver or Colorado Springs area fence repair or fence contracting company and ask for their advice on maintenance of the type of fence you have. They’ll not only be able to tell you how to care for the fence, but they’ll tell you what products to use while caring for it! Making small fence repairs often will prolong your fence life and keep you from having larger fence projects.
