Adding a fence to your property is one of the many ways that you can enhance it. Not only does fencing add curb appeal, but most importantly, they improve safety and security. The winterization process is vital to keep your fence durable and aesthetically-pleasing all-year-round. Winterization is a nuanced technique that varies depending on your specific fence type.

Choosing not to invest in winterization may make life harder than it needs to be. Small damages that go ignored came become worse due to the cold, wet, and harsh winter weather.

They are avoidable.
