Picket fence is a practical design element of the house and keeping it in good condition by replacing damaged or missing pickets maintains a tidy streetscape. There are few things as warm and welcoming as a white picket fence. A properly built and installed fence can beautify a home’s landscape, define property lines and add a modicum of security. Building a fence from scratch, even a short fence, takes quite a bit of time and requires an arsenal of woodworking tools.
- Prepare the pickets using one picket as a jig to drill screw holes through three at a time. Set up the jig by aligning it with the fence rails then drilling 3mm offset holes 15mm from the edges.
- Position the pickets on the rails with even gaps, beginning at the centre and setting out a string line to keep them even at the top. Keep the gaps equal using two spacers topped with an off cut and hung over the rails.
- Secure the pickets by cutting to length then plumbing in the first one with a spirit level before spacing and securing the remaining pickets with 45mm x 8g treated pine screws.
- Scrub wood fences with a fiber scrub brush and a mild detergent solution to remove most stains. For tougher stains, add 1 to 2 cups of bleach to a bucket of warm water. Wear gloves and safety glasses when working with strong cleansers.
- Clean vinyl fences with a sodium-bicarbonate-based cleaner. Bleach may stain the fence. Use a cloth instead of a brush so you don’t scratch the surface of the fence. Wear safety glasses.
- The sister rail can span the entire original rail or just part of it, depending on the damage. Clamp the sister rail under or on top of the original, then drill holes through both rails, bolt them in place with 3/8×4-inch carriage bolts, and remove the clamps.
- Remove all of the fence boards from the damaged rail. Unscrew the boards, as shown here, or pry off the boards and pull out the nails. Try not to damage the fence boards so you can reinstall them later.
