Tromler Construction - A Sacramento General Contractor: That Wood Fence Isn't Too Bad, Just Need Some New Fence Posts

That Wood Fence Isn't Too Bad, Just Need Some New Fence Posts

 

That Wood Fence Isn't Too Bad,

Just Need Some New Fence Posts

 

 

Wood fences are not all the difficult in design. Strong posts to keep things up and straight, good framing to support the fencing, and a lasting connection to the fence boards. Each of these are important to a good fence.

Came across this one yesterday that was not too bad but some of the fence posts have rotted at the ground. New pressure treated lumber clear of the soil will bring this old fence back to good form.

Takes a professional like you to know the correct way to fix this fence.

Good morning Tom. In my old home I had a wood fence with some post problems. Replaced the posts and all was good again.

At this stage of life for that fence, could you spray some sort of wood sealer on the fence to prolong it's life even further? Kind of like what they do with decks?

Tom, no doubt you will have that leaning fence fixed and standing strong in no time.

If that fence is not too bad I would hate to see the one they consider bad.  Thanks Tom

I agree with the commenters that this isn't that bad and it's good to see that it's worth repairing. Good luck!
