Pickets are Missing or Falling Over

If you notice missing pickets in your fencing or boards that have fallen over, odds are, your fence has about reached its maximum lifespan. Another tell-tale sign that your fencing needs replacing is when there are significant holes in your fencing from missing boards.

Your Fence is Leaning

When your fence was installed, it stood upright, both for function and for aesthetics. After all, one of its main jobs is to keep in what you want kept in and keep out what you don’t want in, like the neighbor’s cat who uses your son’s sandbox as its cat litter. However, if your fence is leaning, it’s only a matter of time before it will completely tip over, which will require a whole new fence, rather than a fence replacement.

Your Fence Has Changed Color

When you installed your fence, it most likely was a beautiful color — brown for wood, white or another color for vinyl fencing, and more. However, if your fence has changed color, such as gray for wood, it’s time to invest in a new fence. This is a sign of structural weakness, as most likely your fence has begun to chip, split, break, or more.

You Notice Rust

Rust is what forms when the elements, namely water, reaches metal and begins to break it down. If you see rust on your metal fence, it needs attending to right away. Sometimes, it just needs a new layer of protective paint; other times, some pieces of your metal fence may require replacement.
