Maintaining Your Timber Fencing

If you are installing timber fencing in the Brisbane area, you will probably like it a lot. But you will have to perform some simple maintenance on it from time to time to keep it looking good. If you want your timber fence to last for years to come, these simple procedures will help.

Keep Applying Sealant When Needed

Most timber fencing will be CCA treated, but you still need to apply a sealant to protect your timber from water. We recommend using a sealant shortly after you build the fence. A good sealant will protect your fence from water for years before it begins to deteriorate. However, no situation is the same, so here’s what you do to make sure.

Put small amounts of water on your timber fence from time to time. If it beads up, the timber is still protected. If it seeps into the timber, it’s time to reseal.

Maintaining Your Timber Fencing

Use High Quality Hardware

The hardware is just as important as the timber. Luckily for you, we have high quality hardware for all of your timber fencing needs at Narangba Timbers. Stainless steel and galvanised steel are the best materials for timber fencing.

Trim Vines and Shrubs

Make sure vines and shrubs aren’t putting physical pressure on your fence. This can damage the timber and permit excess moisture to seep into the timber. This can cause mould, mildew and rotting.

Don’t Use Sprinklers Near Your Timber Fence

Timber fencing has a certain amount of water resistance, but don’t challenge it by sprinkling it with water every day. If your fence is near a sprinkler or an irrigation outlet, it is receiving excess moisture. This will prematurely age your fence.
