The following are some go-to habits and routines that should be done regularly to keep wood fences in good shape.

  • Make necessary repairs to wood fences on an annual basis to reverse common damage and wear prevent further deterioration. 
  • Deep clean wood fences at least every three years. When a professional takes care of this, they can also refresh the UV and water-repellent coating to further protect the fence from the elements. 
  • Reseal or repaint wood fences each time they’re cleaned. This helps keep moisture out, prevents rot, and fights weathering. It also helps keep the fence looking its best aesthetically.
