Fencing Issues Post Storm

Fencing is one of the most likely complications from a strong storm. To date, most of what we’ve seen in Duval, Clay & St. Johns counties has been partially damaged fencing due to wind and/or tree or other heavy object crashing into it.

Depending on the extent of damage and age of fencing, it may become a question of just replacing the affected parts or replacing all the fencing. Either way it raises a host of questions, especially if replacing:

First and foremost, does the fencing in question belong to you? If unsure, check your survey and verify it does not/did not encroach on neighbor’s property line. Once certain of ownership and fencing placement then verify if a permit is needed! Requirements can vary so what applies to an owner in Julington Creek or Atlantic Beach may be different from that in Riverside or San Marco—just as examples!

If repairing: How viable/how much useful life is left? Can it be easily matched and tied in to?

If replacing:

Intent: Privacy? Barrier for animals or children? Aesthetics?

Type of fencing: Wood or vinyl? Straight slat or shadowbox?

Posts: Size? Cement in or not?

Gates: Add?

Maintenance: Will it withstand normal conditions? Will it have to be pressure washed or painted periodically?
