How to protect your wooden fencing from the Winter Weather

Strong winds and heavy rain can cause extensive damage to your timber fencing.  Here are some tips on how to protect your fence throughout the Winter Season.

Firstly, fix any existing damage

If you know a storm is brewing then it would be beneficial to check your fencing to secure any loose posts and replace those individual posts as soon as you can.  Once the storm has passed, make sure you check your fence again for any repairs if necessary.


It would be ideal to keep the bottom of your fencing as dry as possible and make a drainage in case of heavy rain.  However, we understand this is not as easy as it sounds!

Which is why we recommend using pressure treated timber gravel boards or concrete gravel boards to protect the wood against moisture and rot.

Check your surroundings

Cut back large branches that are overhanging your fencing as these are likely to fall in high winds and cause damage to your fence.

Protect the wood

All our timber fencing is pressure treated and protected against damp, mould and insects. However, you can take extra care to help protect your fencing by applying a preservative.
