Gate and Fence Repair

Monk’s carpenters can do everything from minor repairs to building new decks and porticos. This previous customer needed a couple of repairs made and knew she could count on us to get it done quickly and correctly. In this instance, the customer needed some repairs made to their fence as well as the fence gate. Additionally, the bottom piece of trim underneath their back door was rotted and needed to be replaced. We took care of these repairs in two days.

Gate and Fence Repair

The first project was to adjust the gate. Currently, the bottom of the gate got caught on the pavers and couldn’t swing open all the way. Carpenters removed the gate and cut down the pickets just slightly. We touched up the new edges with paint to match the existing color. Then the carpenters reinstalled the gate.

Next up was some fence repairs. These varied from just a few loose or missing boards, to entire sections of fence that needed to be replaced. We rebuilt these sections with wood to match. Again, we primed and painted the new boards to match existing.

Lastly, there was one trim piece below the back door that we needed to replace. We removed the existing trim piece and installed a new piece of Azek trim. This is a composite material that is durable and water resistant. We also painted this piece of trim a bright white.

This backyard was looking as good as new after we made the repairs.
