Preparing Your Fence for Hurricane Season
With summer approaching and school ending, everyone is making plans to fill the next couple of months with fun. However, in Houston and surrounding areas, the impacts of hurricane season draw closer. Preparing your home for a hurricane is crucial; this includes your fence.
During a hurricane, loose objects like lawn decorations, flag poles, or patio furniture can be blown around the yard and can potentially destroy your fence. Before the storm comes, remove the loose objects that aren’t secured to the ground and store them in your home or garage until the storm calms.
Surrounding trees and branches could easily fall and crush a fence during a big storm. Sturdy, long poles and burlap could create a simple, yet useful, windbreaker for your trees–ultimately protecting your fence. Otherwise, it is important to regularly prune the trees in your yard to ensure extra branches will not catch the wind.
Has your current fence seen its better days? Older fences could be rotted and unstable, allowing heavy gusts of wind to rip them from the ground. Before the storm comes, perform extra maintenance to your fences. Check for damaged areas that are in need of repair or remove any parts that could easily fly off and damage your home.
