Because it’s so hot outside, you probably don’t want to do any yard work. That’s why having a low-maintenance fence can be so beneficial. After all, you probably don’t want to work up a sweat mowing the lawn, pulling up weeds, and repainting the fence. That time is probably better spent with a cold drink and good book by your backyard pool. In any case, if you are looking for a new fence this summer, here are some of your options.
While vinyl is a synthetic material, that doesn’t make it more prone to melting. Choosing a vinyl fence means you’ve made an investment in a low-maintenance fencing solution. But did you know that higher-quality vinyl is worth your money? This material conducts heat, so it’s safe to touch no matter how hot it is outside when you go to work on it. Plus, it’s inexpensive and boosts your home’s curb appeal.
Your homeowners association has a lot to say when it comes to the type of fences you can have around your home. Let’s suppose that your HOA has made it a rule that all homes in your community need to have wrought iron fences. Well, look at it this way – iron will heat up in the sun. Wrought iron fences featuring a black paint job will absorb even more heat. This can make them painful to touch and make any potential maintenance that much harder to complete.
Chain link is much less expensive than steel or wrought iron. However, it is still made of metal. This means that it has the same pros and cons as wrought iron, especially when it comes to a summer heatwave. However, one point in its favor is that the chain link doesn’t rust. So whether you are splashing around in the pool or bracing for the next heavy rainstorm, at least you know you won’t have to worry about corrosion.
