    As usual, Denver weather likes to surprise and remind us that she is boss!  After such an intense storm, there is often damage noted to your property and structures upon it.  Fallen branches and heavy winds can cause a lot of damage, most visible but some not.  Some areas of town, especially Lakewood, gets high amounts of wind storms throughout the year!  This article discusses your best options and what to do after a heavy storm.

 

Inspect your fence/Assess the damage

    A fallen fence is pretty obvious, let’s face it.  You should always inspect your fence after a storm for damage that is fixable!  This will maintain the longevity of your fence and prevent further damage in the future.

    Walk your fence line!  Look for loose pickets, split/damaged wood, bent wire, etc.  A lot of these minor damages can be fixed quickly and keeps your fence looking beautiful.  Some hidden damages, that may not be as obvious, are your posts.  Wood posts, especially, tend to rot over time and a heavy wind may break them at the base without you seeing it.  If you push on the fence as you walk and you notice or feel any movement, that may be indication of a loose or broken post.  These are important to repair quickly so that they do not continue to pull on your fence, causing the weight to shift and altering the structural integrity.

    Clean up the fence line.  Organic material will damage your fence, especially wood.  Allowing leaves, drifts of snow and tree limbs can lead to rot.  Inspection of your fence after each storm is the best practice.

    If you find your fence needs minor or major repairs, fixing them quickly will save the life of your fence.  Please feel free to contact Gary’s 5-Star Fence for help.  We will ensure that your repair looks beautiful and is structurally sound!
