Maintenance for a Concrete Fence

Featured Image

Precast concrete has many advantages, especially when it comes to precast concrete fencing. One of the main benefits of a precast concrete fence is that it is an investment that will last a lifetime. At Hilltop Concrete, we always boast about precast concrete’s extraordinary durability, its ease of installation, and brag about how easy it is to maintain a precast concrete fence system. Our systems are virtually maintenance-free meaning you never have to worry about fading, warping, or replacing your fence due to the harsh weather conditions Texas experiences. Other fencing options are susceptible to the natural elements and will require timely and costly maintenance throughout the years in order to try and maintain their beauty. While our precast concrete fence systems require little attention and are incredibly easy to maintain, there are a few things you can do to protect and maintain your investment to keep it standing strong and looking beautiful.

One of the most common issues to occur is damage caused by something hitting your precast concrete fence system, such as a lawnmower or vehicle, causing it to chip or crack. If lawnmowers or vehicles prove to be a continuous issue, you could plant bushes or create a buffer in front of the wall to help deter additional damage. You should also be aware of any overhead obstacles that may cause damage to your precast concrete fence, such as trees. You can prevent potential damage by trimming back any trees that may become an issue. When these types of accidents happen, Hilltop Concrete is able to quickly repair the damage because only the damaged section will require attention, not the entire structure. Repairs also usually only take about a day to complete! If the damage is minor, you can seal the chip or crack with a commercial concrete patch compound to prevent additional damage and keep your precast concrete fence looking good as new.  

Maintenance of a precast concrete fence is usually as simple as cleaning your fence to keep it looking as beautiful as the day it was installed. Cleaning your fence also gives you the opportunity to inspect your fence up close. This gives you the perfect opportunity to detect any possible problems early on and will help prevent them from growing into bigger problems. The best news is that cleaning your precast concrete fence is simple! Oftentimes a pressure washer will do wonders at taking care of any stains, dirt, grass, or dust that may accumulate on your precast concrete fence. Because of the durability of precast concrete, you do not have to worry about doing any damage to your fence. If you do not own a pressure washer or you feel that a specific area needs special attention, hand washing your fence is always an option and a simple mixture of water and detergent is all you need. There are many suitable concrete cleaners and environmentally friendly solutions available on the market today.
