Fence and Gate Repair

Fence and Gate Repair Service – Memorial Handyman Houston, Texas

If you live in the Memorial, Spring Branch, or Energy Corridor areas of Houston, Texas and are looking for a qualified professional to repair you fence or gate, look no further.  Whether your fence has blown over or you just need the repair the gate, you’ve found the right place!  As a handyman (and homeowner) that lives in Spring Branch, I’ve fixed many fences and would love to help you fix yours.

Here are some of the most common issues I fix.

Broken Fence Post

If your fence is no longer standing upright, chances are, you have a broken fence post!  The most common reason for a fence post to break is because moisture accumulates around the base of the posts which causes it to slowly rot.  As the wood rots, the fence post gets weaker and weaker.  Eventually, a sudden guest of wind will cause it to break.

Unstable Fence

If you can walk up to your fence and move it more than 1 or 2 inches, then it’s likely that a fence post has rotted out and is no longer supporting the fence.  This is essentially the same thing as a broken fence post, your fence just hasn’t blown over yet.

Broken Fence Boards

Here is another common issue that I run into.  This is a relatively easy fix and you are likely to be able to complete this repair on your own.  Just go to your local home improvement store such as Lowes or Home Depot, pick up a couple of replacement boards and some decking screws and attach the new fence boards.  Easy!

More than likely, your excising fence boards are either cedar or treated pine.  Either way, the new fence boards won’t match the old fence boards.  If the new fence boards will be located in a high-visibility area, you can move some old boards from a less visible portion of the fence and use those for the repair.  Then just use the new boards to replace the ones you took down.  Sounds like too much?  Give me a call, I’ll be glad to help you out!  281-827-2614

Sagging Gate

Just like doors, gates need regular maintenance in order to function their best.  However, sometimes they are just built wrong to begin with.  Either way, sagging gates are a common issue that you don’t have to live with.  Most of the time reinforcing the gate with a cross member and some screws is more than enough to solve the issue.  Occasionally, however, the gate may need to be rebuilt in order to function properly.
