In areas where high winds are typical, it's a good idea to install a fence that can withstand the highest wind speeds. Vinyl fencing is actually an excellent option for high wind resistance, and it's also low maintenance and easy to clean to boot.
Henry's Construction is your local vinyl fence contractor. Here is a little insight into how we install vinyl fencing to withstand high winds.
The location and installation of the posts is the key part of ensuring a fence can withstand high winds and wind gusts. Posts should be at least 3 feet in the ground, held with concrete, and reinforced (with aluminum or concrete).
Careful consideration must be paid to the panel during installation. Without it being taped off, the concrete might enter the rail, which can cause issues in the long term. The rail expands or contracts with the outside temperatures and weather, which can cause the rail to burst.
After panel installation, it's time for backfilling with concrete.
The location of screws matters greatly in privacy fencing and for overall stability every day and in high wind situations, so that's a key reason why you want a contractor who knows what they are doing.
