4 Types of Fence That Withstand Wind

4 Types of Fence That Withstand Wind

One of the problems with fall weather is the high winds and pounding rains that can happen any time a storm rolls through your neighborhood.

One of the problems with fall weather is the high winds and pounding rains that can happen any time a storm rolls through your neighborhood. The wind can ruin the fences you use to protect your home. You’ll also want to increase the privacy around the edges of your property. Now let’s learn more. 

Picket Fences

Picket fences are a classic. Their most striking feature is the slats built into the fence. They let enough wind trickle through. Still, this might affect the amount of privacy that you have. If you want more privacy, it’s probably a better idea to choose a different type of fence altogether. At the same time, you can choose to have closed slats. The choice is yours because you will satisfy your desire for more privacy but the problem here is that the wind might be able to break your fence down instead.

Wrought Iron Fences

The way iron fences and wrought iron fences are designed, the wind can pass through them relatively easily. Still, you can rely on them to help them boost your curb appeal. There are many ways you can use them to help get your home ready for the upcoming Halloween season! Depending on how over the top you want to go, it will probably take several weeks to get your home decorated. With under a month to go, it’s time to get started thinking about what you want to do!

Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fences are incredibly durable. Wind won’t be able to affect them as much as it can damage wooden fences. That’s because vinyl fences are so much more flexible. You’re also going to be surprised by how well they withstand other environmental factors, such as warping, rotting, and insect invasions. 

Chain Link Fences

Now let’s turn our attention to chain link fences. Of all the items on this list, the chain link fence is perhaps the simplest. But because of their simplicity and versatility, they’re very affordable. Still, you want to make sure that a sturdy concrete base is in place, along with posts that can help keep the fences upright.
