High Winds in Boulder County

The recent wind storms have done quite a number on fences over the past few days in Boulder County! Harrison Fence is working with homeowners to give accurate, fair estimates for repair or replacement of fences. Many homeowner’s insurance companies will cover the costs for fence repair or replacement when damage has been sustained from a wind storm – we can work with your insurance company on the repairs.

The hardest-hit areas seem to be the Table Mesa area of Boulder, as well as the Heatherwood and Boulder Country Club areas outside of Boulder. Northwest Longmont near Longmont Estates received some damaging gusts too.

If you have sustained damage to your fence, there are a few things to do while you’re waiting for an estimate and repair:

1. Remove any debris from the ground or that is not securely attached to the existing fence and place in an area where it will be out of the windy zone to avoid any further damage to people or property.

2. If possible, prop up the fence and tie it securely so your pets can stay in the yard, or if you have some wire mesh, secure a small area for pets to be outside.

3. Measure the length of the damaged fence and count the number of posts that need to be replaced, that information is very helpful when calling or sending an email estimate request. Many times we can give you a ballpark quote over the phone.
