3 Fence Types that Stand up to Winter Weather

A good quality fence will stand up against any conditions. That may include security fencing against intruders, but it can also involve extreme weather. If you are looking for fencing material in particular that will resist harsh weather, then certain types of fences will be more reliable than others. You can find a fence that will weather this winter and many winters to come.


As a fencing material, aluminum is a clear choice because it won’t rust in wet conditions, like steel or iron might. Also, like iron and steel fences, aluminum has a great metal look. Aluminum might be lightweight compared to most metals, but it is easy to reinforce for high-security fences. You can count on an aluminum fence to bring you the stability and structure of another metal fence, with the added benefit of weather-resistance.


When in doubt, it’s a great idea to go with a K-rated fence. K-ratings are used to test a fence’s resilience against crashes, particularly by vehicles. These types of fences can withstand a direct impact from a speeding vehicle. K-rated fences were specifically designed against terrorist attacks, but they are common everywhere today. K-ratings can go up to K12, which is a crash-rating against speeds of 50 miles per hour. K-rated fences can easily hold up against extreme weather elements, such as high winds and flying debris.


Although vinyl fences aren’t the top choice for high-security fencing, they are excellent for weather resistance. Vinyl fences are waterproof and resistant to mold, rust, and stains. Additionally, vinyl fences can be customized into any number of shapes, sizes, and colors to fit your curb appeal. Once they are reinforced, vinyl fences can hold up against wind as well. Reinforced vinyl fencing is great for residential areas but can also work for lower-security commercial properties as well.
