fence and property damage danger spring and summer stormsWarm weather has truly arrived in the mountains of western North Carolina and Henderson County. One of the most beautiful places to live in the country. With spring and summer comes the promise of sunny days and opportunities to explore the multitude of hiking and mountain biking trails, campgrounds, and waterways. 

But that warmer weather also brings along an increased risk of severe weather, including thunderstorms, heavy rain, and strong winds. This potential for strong thunderstorms and tropical weather is a concern for home and business owners throughout Hendersonville, NC. 

Thunderstorms and the remnants of landfalling tropical storms can bring lightning, high winds, hail, heavy rain, flash flooding, and landslides. They can have damaging and even devastating impacts on the property and home.

Damaged Fencing Repair Hendersonville, NC

Every storm will pose its own unique risks to property. A quick-moving storm may not drop much rain but bring heavy winds. Fences risk damage in any weather that brings strong winds, flash flooding, and lightning. We have already seen a number of strong systems form along the Appalachian mountains this year.

We are here for you if you do experience damage from wind or flash flooding. Even a small amount of damage should be addressed quickly. A little bit of discoloration, a chip in the finish, or a board slightly askew may not seem like much, but they are a chink in the armor. And a small problem can quickly balloon into more significant damage.

If your fence is exhibiting any of the following damage it may be in need of repair:

  • Your fence is stained with mold or mildew. 
  • Your fence has holes in the bottoms or middle. 
  • Your fence posts or cross beams have holes. 
  • Your fence has sawdust around the base of the posts. 
  • Your fence’s paint has faded or is chipping. 
  • Your fence’s gate never seems to fully close. 
  • Your pets are escaping from your fence. 
  • Your fence has limbs or trees encroaching on it. 
  • Your fence is visibly damaged. 
  • Your fence is showing signs of wood rot and water damage.
  • Your fence is leaning.
  • Your fence is missing boards, panels, or chainlinks. 
  • Your fence is sagging.

You may be able to perform some of these repairs yourself, but the costs to do it well will still add up. If you need professional help, it could become even more expensive to make repairs.

Asheville Fence

Serving the areas around Asheville since 1966 we have seen our fair share of storms in western North Carolina. We have an extended discussion of what might indicate you may need to have your fence repaired and when it is more cost-effective to replace the entirety of the fence itself. Fences are typically durable. They can have a long lifespan if properly maintained. However, just because a fence can be repaired, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best course of action.
