Winter Fence Care


Help your fence stand up to the elements this winter.

Nothing can spruce up and add visual appeal to your property like a wood fence. However, these fences require a little TLC year round to look and function their best. With these winter fence care tips and strategies on hand, you will be more than prepared to keep your fence looking great through even the harshest weather.

Prevention Is Key To Winter Fence Care

How your fence will withstand winter’s frigid temperatures and unpredictable weather largely depends on the integrity of your fence. What is it made of? How well is it installed? Caring for a well selected fence that has been installed by a licensed and experienced professional contractor is simple. This ensures that manufacturer warranty conditions are honored, your fence performance will meet the conditions of your environment, and that all building, HOA, and local laws and regulations are satisfied. Caring for a lower quality fence that does not adhere to these stipulations can be an uphill battle.

Be Aware Of The Weather

Monitor the progression of storms in your area and be prepared to handle them. Once you know of any potential erosion or water drainage issues you can address them and prevent them from leading to the damage of your wood fence.

Keep Your Fence Free Of Ice And Snow Buildup

If left unattended, melting and freezing snow can wreak havoc on your fence. The freeze-thaw cycle can cause a lot of damage. When snow melts it seeps into the natural cracks and crevices of the wood. As it freezes and thaws it contracts and expands, which can cause parts of your wood fence to crack and split and lead to warping and breakage.
