Don’t sit on the fence
Make the bold leap and invest in a new fence this year.
After a stormy winter, we’ve had our fair share of fallen trees and even the odd barn being blown over. So, our humble garden fences haven’t stood much of a chance. Most homeowners would like to think that their garden fence could last years. However, with Cornwall’s gale force winds this is more of a pipe dream than a reality.
“Made out of lightweight steel, fences from Colourfence have a 25-year guarantee and offer the ideal solution to withstanding Cornwall’s severe weather conditions.”
Endless maintenance issues can make keeping your fence in good condition a complete nightmare. So, when is it time to put away your tools and realise that it might be easier to replace your fence? As your fence starts to age, it will gradually start to weaken. Rotting is often one of the first signs that there is something seriously wrong. As the decay sets in, your fence will quickly begin to deteriorate, leaving it looking less attractive and a lot weaker than before. A lot of wooden fences also begin to distinctively lean to one side or another and panels can start to chip or go missing all together. Although these problems can be temporarily fixed, it’s unlikely that this will undo the damage, and it’s usually more cost effective to replace with something stronger and more durable.
Therefore, if you want your fencing to stay intact, then it’s well worth investing in a higher quality product such as Colourfence. Made out of lightweight steel, fences from Colourfence have a 25-year guarantee and offer the ideal solution to withstanding Cornwall’s severe weather conditions. Olly Daglish set up Colourfence in Cornwall on the back of his own success with the product. Olly tells us: “we’ve installed over 450 fences in the last four years, with some adjoining old Colourfences installed just under a decade ago – the difference between old and new is almost too hard to tell. Compare this to the look of a wooden, plastic, or concrete fence after this time and there’s no comparison.”
Cornwall being the second windiest county in the country makes Colourfence the perfect match for fencing in the Duchy. So, put down your tools and think about investing in a safer, more durable solution that means you can spend less time fixing and more time relaxing in your garden this summer.
