I have a fence in my yard that needs both repair (damage blocks replaced due to leaning) and will also be eventually heightened (3 blocks higher) and lengthened (20 ft added). I live in Southern California.
The hollow cinder block fence was built in the early sixties and is NOT reinforced with rebar. Because cost to replace the entire fence would be too much for my budget I am looking at other options.
My question: Is there any way that rebar can be added to the existing fence (vertical) and also added to the new fence (height) - and for added strength have horizontal rebar added across the entire fence (added height part) to tie into vertical rebar of the existing fence?
I have included a (very basic loose, non exact) diagram.
I am no expert here nor do I know anything about fences, restrictions, laws, permits or the like.
Thanks for the help and suggestions.
