How to Fix Wire Fence
A quick look at fence repair
Fences, much like any other product that we use, will require fixing at some point.
Whether it is because of cuts, scrapes or animal activity, you don’t have to replace your entire existing fence. Fixing your woven wire fence is a lot easier than you might anticipate.
The first step to fixing your fence line is gathering the right tools.
A couple of stretcher bars (known also as a fence stretcher) are a must, since they’ll be the ones holding the fence line while you work on repairs.
Wire cutters & a crimp tool will allow you to cut, join wire, and remove fence staples, too.
Splicing sleeves (or crimp sleeves), which will hold or connect two wires together after repairing.
As a general rule, this is how fence line repair would go:
First, start clearing your work area to give you ample space to work and to reduce or eliminate the risk of accidents.
Next, locate the place where the damaged wire is. You will need to use the stretcher bars in order to keep the fence line vertical and be able to work.
Following that, place a splicing sleeve and tighten it with a crimp tool.
To finish, you might want to cut the excess wire to prevent further damage or accidents.
