For many homeowners in Reston, VA, fencing repairs are something they want or think they should handle personally. If they stop at repainting their fence or just rehang a couple of boards knocked loose after the last storm, that is usually no problem. For repairs or maintenance more involved than that, they need to bring a professional service.
At Carter Fence, we sell, install, and repair every style of fence available. We take pride in understanding not just what every fence and home needs to meet the demands of a customer but to also to increase their home’s curb appeal with the right material and style.
Chain Link Fencing is still the most cost-effective and popular choice for many backyards and security fences. The galvanized steel is very resistant to the effects of the sun and weather and flexes away from most physical impact damage. Common damage usually comes near the bottom thanks to lawn care equipment. There is also the damage when the fence is cut by vandals or during a theft of some type.
Even minor damage can allow children or pets to leave the yard. Bending them back in place is easy, but it is best to let our repair team use the right tools to straighten the steel correctly and regain the original appearance. For these fencing repairs in Reston, VA, we loosen the tension on the affected section, strip out the damaged pieces, and weave in new steel threads. Then, we slowly increase the tension and adjust the new threads until they match the original fence.
Aluminum Fencing – Growing in popularity, this material is particularly good for garden and picket fences in Northern Virginia. Aluminum resists weather damage and holds its color against the sun very well. Common damage includes scraped paint and dents from mowers, and other lawn care equipment like edging tools or a severe storm might pull a loose slat off a post or rail. Our teams can fix most of these problems in just a day or two, but replacing a damaged slat may require replacing the brackets to reattach to a rail or post.
Vinyl or PVC Fencing – Polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, is also growing in popularity; especially for decks, rails, and pool fences. Customers often request it because it resists sun and weather damage better than wood or other available materials. Because it is this sturdy, when damage does happen, it takes a major event like a car crash or a tornado sending a tree crashing into your yard. In these situations, we simply remove and replace the damaged pieces.
Wood Fencing – Regardless of the benefits other fencing materials have, many homeowners still prefer natural wood. It has that feel other materials cannot match, and homeowners want for fences and even decks. While it is more vulnerable to sun and weather, it is also simple for us to repair if the homeowner calls us at the first indication of splitting or cracking. If it is damp, we carefully dry and seal the affected pieces against further damage and cover it with a paint or stain that is UV resistant.
