Willow Grove, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/19/2017 -- Residents who have had a wooden fence installed on their property are warned to keep its condition in mind for the upcoming hurricane and blizzard seasons, warns Greenhill Fencing. As one of the only fencing companies in Philadelphia who has seen over 25 years of business, Greenhill Fencing knows firsthand the effects that weather can have on the quality of wooden fencing - and warns residents not to neglect their fence this fall and winter seasons.
One of the biggest dangers to wooden fencing comes during the winter months when snow has a tendency to build up and pile against the fence in the front or backyard. If the fence is older or has not been laminated properly, it can allow snow to pile up and lay against the fencing, which can eat away at the lamination that keeps the wood underneath protected from the elements. This is also an issue with freezing rain and hurricane-strength wind and rain. When exposed directly to harsh weather, the wood that makes up the fence is at risk of rotting, which can damage the structural integrity of the fence and make it less effective.
Residents with wooden fencing are encouraged to clear snow as soon as possible from their fence and to have the lamination inspected by fence contractors in Montgomery County if they believe that a section of the wood has begun to rot. Catching the problem early can mean an easier fix or replacement.
Anyone with concerns about the condition of their wooden fence, or who are interested in professional fence installation ahead of winter, are encouraged to call Greenhill Fencing at 267-329-3005 for more information today.
