A Broken Down Wood Fence is More than Just an Eyesore. Here’s Why You Should Get it Professionally Removed.

by | Jul 16, 2021 | Home Improvement

If you’ve got a broken down wood fence on your property, it’s time to evaluate its condition. Most fences change in appearance over time, with colors fading as they age. Unfortunately, another side effect that time has on wood fencing is that it can cause structural damage that undermines a fence’s ability to serve its purpose: keeping your property secure and private. Today, we’re going over some of the signs of wear and tear that you should look out for in a wood fence, along with why it’s important to consider removal and replacement if any of these characteristics are evident in your fence. Let’s get started.

Signs of Structural Damage

A broken down fence isn’t just a less-than-ideal visual situation; it can be riddled with structural damage that poses a risk to the overall safety of your property. If you’ve noticed that your wood fence is looking a little rough around the edges, take a moment to inspect it a bit closer and determine whether you see any of the following:

Gaps between multiple boards


Warped boards or uneven fence height all around


Small holes in the fence’s boards


Green or black spots on the wood (likely to be algae spores, mold, and/or mildew)


Multiple cracked or broken boards

Though individual boards on your fence can be replaced if these issues are few and far between, it becomes more time- and cost-effective to consider a full fence removal and replacement if the issues are widespread.

Why Professional Removal is the Way to Go

Professional fence removal is the safest and most efficient way to get your fence removed. By entrusting your fence removal to a licensed and trained professional, you ensure that the process gets done as quickly as possible while minimizing the risk of damage to your property.A As wood fences become broken down, they become more structurally unstable by the day. When removed by someone who does not have the experience or technique to do it safely, a wood fence can do significant damage to your soil. If your fence has algae, mold, or mildew growth on it, definitely consider entrusting removal to a professional in order to avoid potentially spreading these potentially harmful spores to other structures on your property.

Though professional junk removal is an investment up front, it can save you hours’ – if not days’ – worth of time, in addition to a considerable amount of money that would be spent on property repairs should anything go awry during a DIY removal. To keep your property as safe, private, and intact as possible regardless of your wood fence’s condition, it’s worth it to look into professional fence removal.

Getting rid of a broken down wood fence on your property is a great step toward preserving its health, safety, and appearance for as long as possible. To learn more about professional fence removal and to get a free quote on your removal, click here.
