How to Repair a Split Rail Fence
Split rail fences are a country classic. They are durable and resistant to even harsh weather conditions. Over time however, the rails can become rotted or damaged and require replacement. Repairing a split rail fence is not a difficult task once you understand the process. The rails slide into holes in the posts and rest between posts. Therefore, replacing a rail requires that the one post that the damaged rail is resting between will need to be removed for replacement. Cedar is a common wood used for split rail fences because it is naturally rot resistant.
