You may have decided that you want to erect the fence now. But whether the current weather conditions allow a nice fencing work or not, will only be best decided by your fence contractor. There are many considerations to be made while taking this kind of work. You may be staying in a region which gets a lot of rough weather, thunder storms and rains. You may be in a region which gets a lot of snowfall and wind. All these factors affect the planning, the choice of the fence type, the life and maintenance of the fences etc. Hence your fencing contractor has a big role in telling you all about the relation of weather and fences.
The best weather for installing a fence
The best weather for fence installation is a sunny day. That’s because without too much of wind and rain will not let the fence posts stand straight, and the installation may turn faulty. Hence no fence contractor would love to work in a rough weather, and would also like the drizzling to stop and the sun to come out, so that the soil ebbs off the moisture and becomes tight and normal dry.
Moreover a bright sunny day lets in enough light for proper working conditions, and cutting and sizing of the fence wires, sheets, wickets etc gets very easy.
Fences for rough weather conditions
When you know that your area gets a lot of rough weather, much rain and wind or much snow, then you would like to plan a fence accordingly. Ask your fence contractor, and you will know that there are some nice choices in fencing material for bad weather zones.
Aluminum is a good choice for fencing when you are worried of bugs and rots due to exposure to excess moisture. Aluminum will not get damaged by water, and nor will it rust. It won’t let molds grown on it too. But the downside of aluminum is that with sunshine it will get too hot and again will get quite cold with snow and rain.
If you are worried of winds mainly, then chain link fences can be installed. Your fence contractor would tell you how much the chain link fence can withstand the forces of wind and storms. The passing wind can pass through the fence and hence no direct impact comes on the fence.
Wood and vinyl are also good choices for their hardness. But while wood can get damaged with over exposure to moisture, vinyl won’t rot or get damaged. Also vinyl can be crafted with various texture, design and styles for ornamental variation. Vinyl is a much economic fencing material too, and hence is a nice choice.
Weather and as a result of it, the soil of the place has a strong role in deciding the fence type, and the best time of the year and day to install the fence. Only an experienced and expert fencing contractor will be able to tell you these, and help you make the right fencing plan.
