A Colorbond fence is a welcome addition to properties of all styles and ages. When you invest in Colorbond, you’ll bring extra security and added privacy to your home—Colorbond will also help improve the overall look of your property and increase market value.
Here at Amazing Fencing, we regularly install a range of Colorbond fencing solutions. Our clients often ask us the best ways to clean and maintain their new Colorbond fence to keep it looking great and to ensure it lasts. This is why we’ve decided to create a summary outlining the best ways to maintain a Colorbond fence.
Regular cleaning of your Colorbond fence will help to prevent the build-up of dirt, cobwebs, mould or other debris. When it comes to stubborn stains, we suggest that you clean your fence with a mild solution of pure soap or a mild kitchen detergent. Use a cloth or sponge to clean any problem areas and then thoroughly rinse away the soap with clean water. If you have a pool near your fence, it’s also important to make sure it’s regularly cleaned of any pool splashes.
The soil will sometimes build up around the bottom of your fence—over time this can result in mould or fungus formation and possibly even corrosion issues. Be sure to keep an eye on the bottom of your fence to make sure soil doesn’t build up too much and get out of hand.
Try to avoid spraying fertilisers on your Colorbond fence whilst you’re maintaining your garden. Some fertilisers will contain chemicals that can cause your fence to corrode. If you do accidentally spray your fence with fertiliser, be sure to wash it away as soon as you notice. If the water restrictions in your region permit, it’s a good idea to give your Colorbond fence a hose down every few months. This is particularly important in coastal areas where there is marine salt spray.
If your Colorbond fence is the target of vandals and you find it’s been graffitied, ensure you have this removed as soon as possible. There are graffiti cleaners available to purchase, but it’s best to contact a fencing specialist first before you use anything on your Colorbond fence. This will help make sure you don’t further damage the paintwork.
Colorbond fences are designed and installed to be extremely strong and durable. However, it’s still advised that you don’t lean large and heavy objects against your Colorbond fence. This may result in scratches and could cause your fence to lean.
Here at Amazing Fencing, we install a variety of Colorbond fencing solutions. We also supply and install other steel options including PermaSteel.
PermaSteel provides many of the same benefits of Colorbond fencing, but it comes with a more affordable price tag.
If steel fencing isn’t for you, take a look at our extensive range of timber fencing solutions.
