When you are planning to get a fence in an area which receives a lot of rainfall, then you must talk about it in details with a reputed fence contractor. Fence contractors, who work in a number of places to build fences, mend old ones etc, have a sound knowledge of which fence type is right for the rainy zone. Besides, with a good knowledge of the soil type of the area, the fence contractor would be able to tell you the best fence types which will last for long and look good too.
The lookout for the perfect fence for the rainy area
You would certainly look for a fence which will be really low maintenance. Now painting the fence once in a year or two is okay and not a huge problem unless the fence is really long around the huge boundary. But when you find a place rotting, another place getting bug and pest infested, and again anther place chipping off, and also some molds and fungi here and there, you really feel disgusted, and wish you could get something that will never get these problems . Luckily such solutions are present now, and a good fence contractor will be able to tell you the best suitable solution for you, as per your budget, your requirement, and some other factors.
In a rainy area, the right fence has to offer you:
Good resistance against rotting
Resistance against weathering
Fungi and mold resistance
Resistance against water infused expansion
If you get them with a fence type, your fencing planning can be done using the material.
Your fence contractor would recommend aluminum when you get a lot of rain. Aluminum has really great resistance against all of the above factors. Moreover they are lightweight too. But aluminum fences may not come with great ornamental designs, and if you are looking at designer fences then your fence contractor may recommend vinyl. Aluminum fences come in chain link design mostly, and may not offer you great privacy. But on the other side, you will get a lot of air coming through aluminum fences, and your area won’t look confined.
Vinyl fences can give you the much needed ornamental design if you are looking at beautification of the property. Moreover you get all the water resistant properties with vinyl, and it’s economic too. Vinyl won’t chip off, break or wreck, and would last years. You only need to paint it when it gets dull to maintain the stylish look, and you may use it for securing your privacy or just for aesthetics.
Don’t forget to talk to your fence contractor about the planning
Whatever you choose, don’t decide on your own. To save money, and save yourself from investing on meaningless investments, you need a good fence contractor, who can advice wisely. This will save you time, give you great return on investment, and also great satisfaction for the much planned fence you got installed.
