When building a fence, it’s important to consider the styles of fences available to you. Regional weather will expose fences to different elements, all of which can have an effect on your fence’s integrity and appearance over time.
Here in the Pacific Northwest, we face several different environmental forces; in particular, rain and wind. Wood in particular requires maintenance, as this material is porous and subject to rot, moss growth, and other issues. However, fence structure can help to make the most of this climate and help you maintain your fence for years to come.
