Winter Weather Drives Durable Fencing Choices

Fridley, MN. — Averaging 32 inches of rain and 52 inches of snow annually, the Minneapolis metropolitan area sees a bit more than its fair share of the nation’s precipitation. And with that moisture, durable fencing is a smarter choice for homeowners looking to spend dollars wisely.

Patrick Quinn, the owner of Northland Fence, suggests homeowners examine their fencing size needs based on purpose and choose materials based on aesthetics required when developing a budget for fencing. His company helps in that process by having an easily accessible, complimentary online fence builder tool.

“The online tool allows homeowners to virtually build out a fence based on a satellite image provided of their yard when they submit their address,” Quinn said.

"Dogs, gardens, children, privacy, curb-appeal, accessibility with gates — these factors should be considered when making fencing decisions," he added.

Northland Fence suggests durable vinyl, chain link, or ornamental wrought iron to withstand the rain and snow elements in the Minneapolis region. These choices cut maintenance time dramatically compared to wood fencing. Northland Fence Minnesota has removed cedar fencing altogether from its line due to tendencies for it to peel, sag, rot, warp, and fade, as well as susceptibility to termite and pest damage, which require costs for upkeep.

Northland Fence is the highest-reviewed fencing company in the city, offers no-cost estimates, installs American-made products, and has served the region since 2004.
