Restoring a cedar fence

You may have heard about the benefits of restoring a cedar fence?… But do you know how to restore one?

Cedar fences are known for their beauty and durability. Cedar fences can last for decades, but over time they will need some restoration work. The most common problem with cedar fences is that they lose their color and turn gray. They can become brittle due to weather and sun exposure.

This is why it’s important to regularly maintain your fence to keep it looking its best as well as structurally sound.

Cedar is a natural material that can rot if not taken care of properly.

Regularly inspect the fence for any signs of damage or rot, as well as checking the posts and kick boards periodically. If you have any of these issues, you need to fix them as soon as possible so that the problem doesn’t get worse. The sooner a fence gets repaired the less money it will cost for the fence repair. Ignoring the problem does not make it go away!

The best way to maintain your cedar fence is with regular maintenance, which includes cleaning and sealing the wood every 3-5 years, brushing away leaves and debris from the bottom of the fence monthly, inspecting for any damage or rot on an annual basis and repainting or re-staining it every 2-3 years.
