Hailstorms cause over $1-billion worth of damage to buildings and property every year, and unfortunately, the forecast doesn’t look too promising. Over the last 20 years, hailstorms have become worse in frequency and strength. The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has even placed Texas as the worst-hit in 2015 with 783 storms in a single year. While pre-engineered steel buildings are designed to be more resistant to hail impact damage than most other types of buildings, they can still get hit pretty hard.
It’s important for a fence to be able to define the borders of your property. But this doesn’t mean it can’t look good.

Lastly, they can also be used to round out the overall look of your home’s exterior.
