Summer is a time of relaxation and leisure, but the warmer months can be hard on your fence. Here’s how the UV Rays of the warmer weather maybe affecting your fence.
TIMBER FENCING -
While it is a classic choice, timber fencing is affected the most by weather conditions. This is due to the fact that timber expands and contracts when it comes in contact with different temperatures. And the warmer temperatures are potentially more damaging for your timber fence. But this doesn’t mean you should avoid the beauty and traditionalism of a timber fence; just make sure you choose a durable product that is less likely to crack or warp and you effectively maintain your fence as the seasons change. You can avoid many of the negative affects the Spring and Summer by simply staining or painting your wood fence to help keep the elements at bay.
COLORBOND FENCING -
One of the great benefits of having a Colorbond fencing is the fact that it is very durable when it comes in contact with both hot and cold weather, and can withstand the most extreme of temperatures. Colorbond fencing is also very easy to clean, which is a huge benefit after those summer thunderstorms. Colorbond won’t fade or crack, peel or chip like other fences making it a great choice all year round.
CHAIN WIRE FENCING:
Like Colorbond fencing, chain wire is a durable and resilient fencing option, especially during the warmer months. They are strong and can withstand just about any type of weather, including heat and sun damage. However, if you’re looking for privacy, chain wire fencing may not be what you’re looking for. They are see-through which means you won’t have the additional privacy, but you’ll still get access to all that Queensland sunshine and cool summer breezes.
