(Newswire.net -- March 6th, 2013) Austin, TX – Earlier this week a powerful windstorm roared through the area, wreaking havoc on fences in Austin, TX swamping Austin fence companies with urgent calls for fence repair.
Austin fence companies are overwhelmed with request. "Post replacement and reassembly of wood panels to new fence posts are the most common request we're getting" according to Casey Talley, President of 512 Fence Service in Austin, TX.
Mr. Talley notes, "Fortunately, people understand that it may take time for Austin fence contractors to catch up with the work load." "We're doing our best to take care of urgent situations like people who have pets that can't be kept inside the house. Many people are simply opting to replace all the fencing around their entire property and contacting their insurance company to see if their fence damage is covered."
Austin Texas search engine optimization (SEO) service expert, Jason Kilgore analyzed search traffic on Google, Yahoo, and Bing to identify what people searched for on the Internet in the aftermath of the windstorm. "They were looking for contractors to fix everything from roofs, to trampolines" according to Mr. Kilgore. There was a noticeable spike for terms such as "fence Austin", "fences Austin", and particularly terms that included the words "repair" and "fence" such as "Austin fence repair".
Austin retailers such as Home Depot, Lowe's and local Austin fence suppliers are experiencing shortages of fencing materials. A local Home Depot sales representative said that shipments are rolling in daily from their distribution hubs to replenish inventory to keep up with the demand for fencing supplies.
The sales people with 512 Fence Service are finding that most homeowners are requesting metal fence posts to prolong the life of their fence. "I encourage the upgrade because quality metal fence posts can withstand strong wind gusts and will outlive wood posts by 2 to 3 times".
"We are looking for helpers to ease the load on our folks, but the demand is so great that we're just not getting the response to our employment ads like we normally see" according to Mr. Talley.
Mr. Kilgore who manages the SEO for 512 Fence Service stated "Casey and his team have their hands full to respond to all the requests flooding in through our website http://www.512fenceservice.com and the phone calls from referrals from previous customers.
