One of the most beneficial features of ornamental fences is their durability. Customers love ornamental fences for their low-maintenance quality and finish that prevents cracking, chipping, and peeling. 

Ornamental fences will hold up well in a variety of environments and weather conditions. You shouldn’t have to do much at all to maintain them, but for the summer months, here are a few simple tasks to consider. 

Ornamental Fence Maintenance 

  • Check your fence periodically for wobbly posts or damage to gate hinges or locks. 
  • Trim back low-hanging branches that may interfere with the fence. Als, remove any wild grass or weeds growing near the fence.
  • Wipe or spray away loose dirt, dust, or debris that has settled on your fence. 
  • Oil or lubricate any squeaky hinges.
  • Spot-check ornamental fences for stains. 
  • Apply degreaser or rust, calcium, and lime cleaners to any problem areas. 
  • To make your fence shine, try rubbing some car wax on the railings to make it look as good as new. 
  • Keep in mind that aluminum shouldn’t rust, so using water and cleaning products is safe and can help keep your fence in good condition for years ahead.
  • After spraying down your fence—even just using water—allow it to air dry or wipe it down using a soft cloth.
