What is a winterize fence?

Winter weather is here to stay. It’s time to winterize your fence or have a residential fence that’s winter  weather resistant installed for your home.

A winterize fence is a fence that can hold up to winter weather while still enhancing your curb appeal.

Both wood fencing and wrought iron fences make for great winterize fences.

How is a wood fence transformed into a winterize fence?

A privacy fence such as a wood fence is transformed into a winterize fence when the sealant is applied. Wood fence sealant should only be applied if a fence has no visible splintering, rotting or breaks in the wood. This is why it’s best to have a new wood fence installed rather than having repairs completed for a pre-existing wood fence.

Once a privacy fence has its wood treatment completed, you can have a peace of mind that your wood fence will hold up strong against wet snow, heavy snow, ice and other wintry mixes.

If you decide to opt out of having a privacy fence, you can have a winterize wrought iron fence instead.

A wrought iron fence becomes a winterize fence when the fence is rust proofed. To rust proof a wrought iron fence, a reliable and knowledgeable Baltimore fence contractor must seal and paint a wrought iron fence. You will get the best result from a winterize metal fence when you have a newly installed wrought iron fence. When you have a new metal fence, you have the best opportunity for to prevent rusting before the winter elements have the opportunity to rust your residential fence.

It’s important that all components of a metal fence are applied with sealant for the best winter proofing. Yes, that includes sealing the gate and hardware of your wrought iron fence to maintain the best fence functionality.

Having a winterize fence will save you time and money by lowering your fence maintenance needs.
