For more than 30 years, Carter Fence constructed and installed awnings, decks, and fences in neighborhoods throughout Northern Virginia and we continue to do so today. Our customers return to us to repair the fences we installed when weather or damage occurs. It is just one example how we have earned our reputation for reliability and fair prices.
Aluminum and chain-link are two of the more popular materials we use today. Our technicians provide on-site consultations and free estimates for Arlington, VA, metal fence repairs to include everything from a vandalized security fence to a side yard gate the next-door neighbor crushed with her car while talking on the phone.
More residents in Northern Virginia choose aluminum in place of traditional wood. This alternative material is far more weather resistant and is very appealing to homeowners for its durability against minor damage and curb appeal.
Aluminum can be cut and shaped to almost any customer requirement. With the right primer and paint, it can appear to be a wooden, picket fence or appear exactly like a wrought-iron driveway gate. The possibilities are amazing, and since aluminum does not rust like iron, it requires much less maintenance and repairs. Your fence can still look like new for many years after we install it. Finally, aluminum is much more cost-effective than iron and even costs less than pressure-treated wood in some situations.
Arlington, VA metal fence repairs usually do not need extensive amounts of labor either. Our technicians can quickly detach bent or broken slats and rails. We have the tools to straighten minor damage and can replace major damage just as simply. Shallow scratches can be sanded away and repainted with little or no reduction in visual appeal. If the posts are severely bent or otherwise damaged, we dig them out and replace both the posts and the concrete holding them in place. If the damage is vandalism like tagging, our repair teams can sandblast or use paint thinner to remove spray paint without damaging the fence.
Chain-link remains a very popular and cost-effective choice for security and backyard fences. The galvanized, individual steel strands form a tough, weather-resistant fence that the sun does not affect over. Chain-link fences are designed to flex against physical damage and vandals do not waste time trying to paint them.
The only way to knock down chain-link is to crush or crumple the line and corner posts since they provide the framework needed to stretch chain-link fencing taut. To make repairs on this metal fence in Arlington, VA, we release the tension that holds the fence in place and removes the damaged strands. We can straighten them or replace them and then weave them back into the damaged section. Finally, our technicians tighten the fence back to its usual appearance with no sign there was ever a problem.
