Vinyl Fence Repair

You probably bought your vinyl fence because you thought it would never need repairing, and now there is a small hole in the fence. You can fix it without a great of time or expense. 

If the hole is less than1.5" you can fix the hole with plastic body filler. Fill it and allow it to dry for at least one hour. Then you will need to sand it with medium grit sand paper followed by fine grit so the plastic filler will be flush to the fence surface. After the filler is dry and sanded, wipe the dust away.

If the hole is larger than 1.5" wipe the area with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or grime that may be around the edge of the hole.

You will need to fill the hole with expanding insulation foam. Simply spray the foam into the hole slowly to allow it to expand and fill the entire hole on the inside of your fence. The foam should be oozing out of the hole. Let the foam dry for about 24 hours.

After the foam is dry saw off the excess foam that is outside the hole. Sand away any excess with medium grit sandpaper, you'll need to leave a slight dip in the foam because it shouldn't be flush. 

You'll need to fill the dip with plastic body filler that will have to be flush with the fence. Allow it to dry for at least one hour. Sand the body filler with medium grit sandpaper, then use fine grit to make the plastic filler flush to your fence surface.

The entire process should be simple from start to finish, and you need to be sure to let both types of filler dry completely before sanding and finishing the job.

If it is still more than you want to deal with go online and search for a contractor that also does vinyl fence maintenance. It may even be the business that installed the fence in the first place. 

Your vinyl fence is still the best in the industry, and they are popping up all over, in almost every neighborhood. Some may still prefer a wood fence, but the vinyl fence lasts much longer. It may cost a bit more, but when you figure in the work needed to keep a wood fence painted and repaired, your vinyl fence passes scrutiny every time. Fence Company
