What Are Storm-Sturdy Fences?

Fences serve many functions. They beautify and add privacy. They protect your children while keeping out unwanted animals and people. However, they’re susceptible to storm damage and if you live in Florida, you know that we’re at risk for everything from severe thunderstorms to hurricanes. 

Thankfully, storm-sturdy fences can give you all the benefits you want while standing up to the worst that Mother Nature can dish out. What are storm-sturdy fences and will this option work for you?

Designing Fences to Weather Florida Storms

Storm-sturdy fencing is exactly what it sounds like: fencing that’s designed intentionally to withstand storm-force winds. It’s not a single type of fencing, although some types naturally fare better in high winds than others. However, with the right precautions, all types of fencing, from vinyl to wooden privacy fences, can stand a fighting chance. 

It all begins with the footings. You can think of these as your fence’s foundations. They’re what anchor it to the earth. At American Fence & Railing, we use twice as much concrete as usual with our depth footings to help ensure a secure grip during high winds. We also use longer posts to ensure that your fence is anchored more deeply into the soil.

It’s also about the materials. We use only the highest quality metal, wood, and vinyl. We also use larger-diameter materials. That equals extra strength, durability, and resistance in the face of hurricane-force winds.

Finally, we’ve served Northeast Florida for many years. That means we’re intimately familiar with Florida’s wind rating requirements and always build to exceed them. Our goal is always the same: to install a durable, beautiful fence that adds value to your home and life while offering peace of mind about its durability in the face of Florida storms.

As a mark of our confidence in our products and our commitment to your satisfaction, we back every fence we install with a comprehensive lifestyle warranty (vinyl, PVC, and aluminum) against defects in workmanship and materials. 

Isn’t it time you had the beautiful fence you’ve longed for? Get in touch with us today for a free quote or to learn more about our storm-sturdy construction and what you can expect in terms of wind resistance from our range of fencing products. Wherever you live within the Duval, St. Johns, and Clay County area, we can design and install a custom fence that will offer the durability and strength you deserve.
