Does Your Fence Need Some Attention?

Starting to notice some signs of damage on your fence? If your fence is more than ten years old, it’s inevitable that it will eventually need repairs. If you’re trying to be proactive about your fence’s lifespan, you may even want to get on top of a minor problem early.

Your fence may need repairs for many different reasons, including:

  • Rotting posts, pickets, or supports
  • Rust build-up
  • Damage or impact to the fence
  • Climate-related breakdown
  • General wear and tear

Whatever challenges your fence is facing, Jim’s Fencing has got you covered. From quotes to repairs and replacements, even in an emergency, you can count on your local Jim’s Fencing contractor.

5 Signs Your Fence Needs Repairs

There are a few telltale signs that your fence needs repairs, and most of them are pretty clear by looking at your fence.
  1. Your fence is sagging or leaning

    .Fence leaning can be caused by rain, wind, or just through the aging process of the wood. If you notice that your fence is no longer upright, it’s best to tackle the problem as soon as possible.
  2. Rotting fence posts at ground level

    Fence rotting occurs commonly in fences that have not been treated properly. If caught early enough, it can prevent you from having to replace your fence completely. Fence rot can be detected early by checking the posts of your fence, where they meet the ground. Our team is trained in all things fences and will be able to help you spot rot before it gets out of control.
  3. Visible rust or water damage

    Water damage is another visible indicator that your fence needs repairs. Water and rain damage can often lead to rust, rot, mould, and structural decay, depending on the type of fence you have. Ongoing water damage can even lead to mould and algae on your fence.
  4. Termite tracks, wood cracking or buckling

    Subtle signs of pest problems in your fence include swelling, water damage, crumbling, cracking and visible insect tracks in the wood. If you spot any of these signs, get in touch with a fencing contractor ASAP.
  5. Wobbly fence posts & loose panels

    Posts and panels can warp, wobble and fall off over time, or they may be damaged by impact or strong weather. However, having parts fall off your fence can also be a sign of other quality issues.

Do any of these problems sound familiar? If you have any concerns about your fence, a Jim’s Fencing contractor can help diagnose the issue.

Timber Fence Repairs

🗸 Replacing fence palings and panels
🗸 Replacing timber fence posts
🗸 Filling and sealing holes in fences
🗸 Fixing a leaning wooden fence

Damaged wooden fences can be a safety risk, and compromise your safety. Fragmented and broken pickets and slats can cause injury, and mould growth is hazardous for your health, so it’s important to address any concerns about your timber fence ASAP.

Colorbond Fence Repairs

Colorbond fences can be seen all over Australia, and it’s easy to see why: they’re cheap, good looking and hardy. But even something as sturdy as a Colorbond fence will need repairs now and again.

Bent panels, broken posts and structural damage to your fence are all a possibility throughout its life span – often due to a landscaping accident, weather damage or vehicle collision.

 Damaged metal fences can be dangerous, and particularly if you have children or pets in the yard, you’ll want to repair your Colorbond fence as quickly as possible.

With more than 28 years of experience as fencing contractors, our local teams are fully trained to fix your Colorbond fence.

Frequently Asked Questions

If there’s a problem with your fence, you’ll want to know if your warranty covers the cost of the repair or replacement. Naturally, this will depend on the terms and conditions with your original fencing contractor, as well as any warranty on your fencing materials.

Jim’s Fencing also offers a workmanship quality warranty. In the very unlikely event that your fence issue is the result of faulty work, we will fix it at no cost to you, within our workmanship warranty period.
Replacing or repairing your fence is a tough decision, and there are many factors to consider. The issues your fence has will affect whether it’s better to fix it or replace it.

For most fence damage, a good rule of thumb is to evaluate how much of your fence is damaged. If more than ¼ of your fence is affected by rot, weather or other factors, it may be more cost-effective to replace it. Your Jim’s Fencing contractor can let you know what the relative cost of repairing versus replacing your fence would be.

Depending on your fence’s remaining lifespan, it may be better to replace it now instead of patching it up. An aged fence can look untidy and can cause safety issues. Fences that show prominent signs of aging or are more than 20 years old should be considered for replacement.

Termite damage is the exception to many rules, and one of the scariest scenarios you can encounter when building with wood. Thankfully, most fences are treated to keep your fence safe from termites, but in the event you are stuck with them, you will need to have it treated and inspected to make sure the termites are completely gone. This can be an expensive task, and it is often more cost-effective to replace the fence.
