Home Repair & Maintenance Tips : Repairing Wooden Fences
Hello. This is Oscar Moreno with Moreno Custom Home Visions, and today we’re going to teach you guys how to repair your wooden fence. Now, basic tools that you’re going to need, real simple, is a crowbar, this will help out instead of the little stuff. Also you’re going to need, is, a hammer, and your, either a regular drill, or cordless drill. And, of course, supplies is some screws, to hold your pickets up against the fence again. So, first thing we’re going to do is use our crowbar to get in to the areas where we want to get in here. So we’re going to jab our crowbar in here, and remove the fence pickets. If, in fact, that when you remove the fence pickets there’s still nails left over, and they’re pretty rusted, which is going to be very common, don’t try to pull ’em out, ’cause it’s just going to waste your time.
Go ahead and use your hammer, hammer them back into place. It’ll be fine. No big deal. Also, you might find when you’re replacing these guys, is you’re going to find that there’s extra screws in there. So, you’ll use your drill to go ahead and take those out. Once you go ahead and remove the pieces that you want to replace, and your surface is ready, go ahead and apply or install your new fence pickets, in place, screw ’em back into place, making sure that you’re screws that you’re using are for exterior use. Once your screws are in place and your pickets are installed, you’re pretty much done. And that’s how you repair your wooden fence..
