Rain and wind undoubtedly pressure-test the construction of fences and gates.
Such weather is rare in Southern California, but as the saying goes, "When it rains, it pours."
The usually mild desert environment is very sunny and dry.
Fences and gates - particularly the ones we create and install for clients -are mainly wood, steel, or a combination of the two.
The constant sun day after day for most of the year produces heat, which will warp and shape those materials to some degree.
The sudden introduction of moisture from rain, storms, or hurricanes accompanied by a wild swing of temperatures will further cause the materials to structurally shift in subtle yet integral ways.
Do not be surprised if you find boards loose or fallen off of the frame, or a gate latch no longer catches right.
Most of these repairs can be done in a few hours.
