The question we have set out to answer today is how does a SLEEKFENCE handle different climates? How do our aluminum privacy fence panels and aluminum screen fence panels cope with the cold, snow, heat, extreme winds, hurricanes and storms?
We have already gone over a plethora of benefits pertaining to using SLEEKFENCE aluminum fence panels in our previous blog posts. Our product has definitely found a considerable amount of favor in the eyes of contractors and homeowners. SLEEKFENCE is easy to install and requires almost no maintenance. It doesn’t rust or rot. Gone are the days of seasonally staining and repainting your fence. SLEEKFENCE can help increase the value of and compliment any home with virtually any type of landscaping. Let’s figure out how well it will hold up in a multitude of different weather conditions, starting with the cold.
How a SLEEKFENCE copes with the cold and snow:
SLEEKFENCE is very resilient in cold climates and we believe we are the best option if you live in an area where heavy snow is a concern. Our modern metal fence product is very strong and can withstand heavy snowfall. Our aluminum fence panels will not expand or contract noticeably in temperature. You can rest easy knowing that any water from melting snow will not be a problem. SLEEKFENCE products do not rust, because aluminum does not rust.
How a SLEEKFENCE copes with heat:
SLEEKFENCE is beautiful and resilient, but when it comes to hot weather, just like a black asphalt driveway, a black metal fence can retain a lot of heat. Look but don’t touch a SLEEKFENCE on hot days. Other than that, it takes a lot more heat to burn or melt aluminum, compared to vinyl or wood!
How a SLEEKFENCE copes with extreme winds, hurricanes and storms:

Our posts are solid; however, if you live in a region that experiences extreme winds, hurricanes or storms and would like some extra reinforcement, we’d implore you to check out our galvanized post inserts.
