Fences keep pets in, pests out, add curb appeal, and take quite a beating from the elements. From time to time, your fence can accrue some damage; maybe from a fallen branch, high winds, or even rot or rust. If your fence is damaged, it’s not doing its job to the best of its ability. If you haven’t already scheduled fence repair to fix damage to your fence, now is a good time.
Remember, winter is coming to the north east, and of course Frederick MD. If your fence is already damaged, and repairs aren’t done before winter, you risk additional costly damage. Many people don’t realize this until it’s too late.
Continue reading to understand the threat of winter to an already damaged fence, and why you should schedule fence repair ASAP, while there’s still time!
Winter Can Be Brutal
And this year is expected to be cold and snowy for us. This is bad news for fences that aren’t fixed before the wintry weather hits.
Think about the weight of snow. As it piles up, it becomes heavy—we know this if not only because we see trees bending beneath its weight. All of that snow piled on an already damaged fence is going to take advantage of its structural weakness, which can easily and quickly cause more damage. Scheduling fence repair now will make your fence structurally sound again before it begins snowing.
If the sun stays behind clouds, and the temperature stays low, that heavy snow could be sitting for a long time. Plus, if you have trees whose branches hang over your fence, those branches could snap beneath the weight of the snow, and fall onto your fence, damaging it further.
Snow is also slow-melting. This means it’s going to sit on your fence for a while until it’s completely melted and dry. If you have a wood fence or iron fence that is either physically damaged or beginning to rot/rot, slow-melting snow is bad news. Water will sit in the physical damage and quickly begin rot or rust, or make current rot/rust issues worse.
Fence repair now, BEFORE bad weather hits, is one of the best things you can do to combat winter fence damage. Just remember, it’s not long before winter officially begins, so make sure you’re on top of it.
