Why do some of our strata clients replace their fence in phases?
We wanted to take a moment to go over why it would be advantageous for strata’s to begin replacing their existing fence in phases rather than spending money on repairs. We always want to serve our clients and advise them to take action on solutions that will save them time and money in the long run.

Cost is usually the number one consideration for our strata fence clients when the repair vs. replacement conversation comes up. Even though a quick repair seems like the fastest and easiest solution, it is a short-term fix. Over the last 37 years, we have done thousands of fence repair jobs, and we are never surprised when we are called back to repair a fence numerous times, only to replace the entire thing a short time later. Let’s talk about why this happens. Usually, rotting begins in the base of the fence post; it doesn’t get noticed until it spreads like cancer to other parts of the fence. The fence is probably on its last legs when most people notice the rotting. Most of the time, it would have been cheaper for our strata fence client to skip the repairs and go right to the replacement stage. A replacement was bound to happen anyway, so they would have saved themselves a few years of repair fees by jumping straight to this step.
For our strata fence clients that don’t have a fund big enough to replace their entire fence at once, we recommend doing the replacement in stages, starting with the worst area. Once this process is complete, the strata will save many thousands of dollars in repair fees over the next 5-10 years. We can eliminate fence maintenance costs if the strata replace a cedar fence with one of our vinyl or aluminum options. We have very competitive warranties on all our products and a customer support team that our clients could call if anything were to go wrong. We have attached a picture below of a site map that outlines a fence for one of our previous clients that were replaced in stages.
