Replacing Only Part Of Your Fencing? 3 Things To Prioritize For A Seamless Look

Ivan May

Having a fence around your home can be a fantastic way to improve the security of your home and add privacy, but it can be frustrating when some of the existing fence is in bad shape. If you're unhappy with the condition of your fencing, it's vital for you to look into what you can do to replace part of the fencing without making it stand out too much.

If replacing only a portion of the fence is planned, consider the following tips for getting the fence repaired and having a seamless look for your home:

Keep the Color the Exact Same

One of the easiest ways to help your new fencing match the existing parts is to ensure that the colors are the same. This can be difficult or even seem impossible if your fencing is quite old and has been discolored by the weather. If this is the case, you can take the time to add wood stain for wood fencing or apply paint to the entire fence.

Keeping the color cohesive for the whole fence will ensure that it looks fantastic once finished and that the new fencing blends right in.

Take Care That the Measurements Are Just Right

Taking exact measurements of the existing fencing is vital since you want your new fence to fit right in. You need to also consider how deep the original fence is dug so that you can get an exact match. If you're unsure of how to get accurate measurements, it may be best to bring in a professional to take all the measurements needed to pick out new fencing for your yard.

Consider If a Full Replacement Would Be Best

When you bring in a professional to assess the work that needs to be done, you may discover that a full replacement could be preferable. This may be the case if your current fence isn't very sturdy and may be more likely to start tipping over after a few years. Replacing the entire fence can also help give you a good idea of how long your fence will stay in great shape before needing to be replaced

As you prepare for choosing new fencing to be installed at home, you'll begin to see what's most important if you want a seamless installation. With the tips above, you can make sure that the new fence looks fantastic and that the new fencing blends in perfectly with the older fence.
