HOW YOU CAN MAINTAIN NEW FENCING IN LEIGH-ON-SEA, HADLEIGH, BENFLEET, RAYLEIGH AND SOUTHEND-ON-SEA IN ESSEX?
Sun, wind, rain, snow, rot, and below-ground frost subject wood fences to a terrific beating. Wood is vulnerable to nature especially rotting. This means you should always repair fencing with the most rot-resistant lumber. Pressure-treated lumber has been saturated with preservatives and lasts almost indefinitely, even with wood that has been buried in the ground. Cedar and redwood stand up well underground. Exterior paints and stains work well above ground, but are almost useless below or on parts of fences in frequent contact with water.
