Best Fences for a Storm

As we enter the thick of Hurricane season this year, all of us at Secure Fence and Rail want to remind our customers how important having a quality fence installed by professionals can be in the midst of an intense storm.

When wind speeds reach 50 miles per hour and exceed 70, it’s not uncommon for trees and even fences to rip out of the ground causing damage to surrounding structures. By hiring a fencing company who understands the unique challenges that come with installing fences in a hurricane-prone area, like Secure Fence and Rail, you’re well on your way to making a good decision.

Far and away the sturdiest fence in the face of a hurricane is a chain link fence. However, these fences do not often provide the privacy or aesthetics many homeowners desire.

Wooden fences, properly posted in the ground, can be a great choice. While they can be susceptible to warping in extreme moisture and falling over during hurricane-force winds, they are economical to replace.

Vinyl fencing is also a very durable and smart choice for Floridians. This material can withstand strong winds and is also impervious to certain elements. No matter how much water you throw at this fence, it will not rust or warp.

If you have special questions and considerations regarding your Florida fencing, call Secure Fence and Rail Today. We can make sure you’re comfortable with your fencing decision, so you can weather any storm
