What do fence repair services include?

Fence repair methods vary depending on the type of damage. To name a few, fence repair may include replacing fence panels or securing loose posts with backfill. No matter what damage your fence has sustained, we’ll help you find a fencing specialist for the job. Here are some fence repair services you can book on Airtasker. 

Wooden fence post repair 

Wood fences take a beating from the sun, wind, rain, and snow. Not to mention, wood-damaging pests subject your fence to rotting. If you need to repair your garden fence posts or secure wobbly posts, you can hire a Tasker to fix that right up. For example, your Tasker may use a fence post repair spike to secure a weak timber post.  

Or they can use fence post spurs to fix broken or rotted fences sections. Fence post brackets can secure fencing and straighten up leaning posts. Please note that one weak fence post can pull down your entire fence, so make sure to schedule your fence post repair as soon as you notice problems with your fence. 

Fence panel repair 

Repairing fence panels is a fast and cost-effective way to fix a fence, including slatted fence panels. Fence panel repair may require removing damaged fence panels and replacing them with new ones. Taskers can also repair slatted fence panels so that you can restore the privacy of your home. 

If your fence simply needs a new paint job, a Tasker can get it done as well. Once your fence is in good shape, you can start planning for a cosy garden deck with a decking specialist

Chain link fence repair

Your chain link fence may give way underneath if you have a dog that keeps digging under your fence. Or perhaps a tree limb fell on your property and ruined your fence rails. (You can hire a Tasker to remove a fallen tree or inspect a dangerous tree in your property, too!) When such issues arise, it’s easy to book chain link fence repairs on our platform. 

Chain link fence repair may include cutting out the damaged section and replacing it with a new piece. Other repair methods include attaching tent stakes to the bottom of your fence. Rather than look through several chain link fence repair companies online, why not hire a Tasker for the job? Find trusted chain link fence repair experts by putting up a task now.

Concrete fence repair 

Using a concrete fence repair spur is another quick and effective way to repair a fence. Fixing your concrete fence posts prolongs the service life of your fence. Rather than spend money right away on a full fence replacement, your Tasker can reinforce your fence from one side. 

Some other issues with concrete fence panels include wobbly footing, water intrusion, and cracks. These cases call for solutions like replacing the whole footing, adding a support post, and injecting epoxy into the cracks.
