Chesapeake & Norfolk

Chesapeake and Norfolk, two of Virginia's vibrant coastal cities, share a unique characteristic: they are a blend of coastal beauty and bustling urban life. Yet, this proximity to the coast also means exposure to the capricious weather patterns that the Atlantic can bring.

In response to these conditions, residents often choose aluminum and vinyl fences that seamlessly blend with any landscape while remaining resistant to the harsh coastal weather. Both require extremely low maintenance, even in coastal conditions. The Granite Aluminum ActiveYards Fence boasts 3x more salt protection than the industry standard.

At Hurricane Fence Company, we specialize in providing robust fencing solutions to both cities. Our partnership with ActiveYards ensures the strength of our vinyl and aluminum fence materials, and our experienced team is here to make sure it gets installed quickly & professionally.

Hampton & Virginia Beach

Hampton, known for its rich history and numerous Civil War-era landmarks, presents a unique fusion of past and present while also dealing with challenges posed by coastal weather, particularly storms and hurricanes.

In this context, residents favor traditional wood fencing, which aligns with the city's historical charm. To enhance the durability of this material against harsh weather, we at Hurricane Fence Company provide high-quality, pressure-treated wood fencing options and specialize in their secure installation.

In contrast, Virginia Beach, celebrated for its picturesque ocean views and vibrant nightlife, balances city life with seaside relaxation. The city's coastal location exposes it to adverse weather and saltwater damage. As a result, residents prefer vinyl fencing for their durability, low maintenance needs, and classic coastal style.

Understanding the unique needs and aesthetics of Hampton and Virginia Beach residents, we offer a wide array of fencing solutions. Our commitment is to provide fences that not only harmonize with your home and city's character but also offer dependable protection against unpredictable coastal weather.

Newport News & Portsmouth

Newport News, home to a significant naval shipyard and abundant historical and cultural treasures, is located on the James River Estuary. This prime location, while rich in heritage, industry, and nature, also exposes it to the occasional harsh coastal weather, making robust defenses a necessity.

Homeowners here often favor composite and vinyl fencing. Composite fencing is prized for its aesthetic similarity to natural wood & stone (depending on design). They boast superior resistance to moisture, rot, and insects, a crucial feature in coastal humidity. Similarly, vinyl fencing is durable, withstanding time and weather, with minimal maintenance.

Portsmouth, characterized by its waterfront charm and naval heritage, is situated by the Elizabeth River. This maritime climate requires durable fencing solutions to stand against salty air and frequent coastal storms.

We frequently install aluminum and wood fences in Portsmouth. Corrosion-resistant & favored by many HOAs, aluminum fences are well-suited for salty sea breezes. Wood fences remain popular for their timeless aesthetic appeal.


Steeped in history and brimming with Southern charm, Suffolk offers an enticing blend of rural tranquility and urban amenities. As Virginia's largest city by area, it encompasses a diverse range of landscapes, from lush wetlands to bustling downtown areas. The city's geographical position, however, makes it prone to occasional coastal storms and the ongoing effects of humidity.

In Suffolk, homeowners often choose between vinyl, aluminum, & composite fencing, primarily for their adaptability to both rural and urban settings.

Each of these fences is particularly resistant to the humid conditions and occasional high winds that can affect the area. These fences retain their pristine condition for many years, making them a popular choice among Suffolk residents.
