4 best tips to have a stronger fence during storms
After the damage caused by Dudley and Eunice, many hoped it would be hurricane season this year, but with Gladys around, we have some tips for you to keep your fence upright.
1. Keep your fence clean.
This may seem odd, but if your fences and the area around them aren’t clean, they’re more likely to rot. This makes them weaker and more prone to tipping over in strong winds.
2. Preserve your fence.
In the same way as above, this is to prevent rotting from weakening your structure. Preservatives can be sprayed or painted on and are best done in the summer. Unfortunately, if you haven’t done this by now, you may have to accept your fate and look ahead to next year’s hurricane season!
3. Sort the posts haphazardly.
The fence posts are between the panels and are what keep the panels in place. If the posts are unstable and inappropriate, they will likely get shuffled. Get some post office concrete from your local DIY store and start digging!
4. Get planted!
Spring is almost here so it’s the perfect time, and this puts an end to the awkward greetings to your neighbor since your fence fell! Shrubs, hedges, and bushes act as a windbreak, but be careful – a tree-like plant can fall in a storm and damage the very fence you’re trying to protect.
