Why Chain Link Fencing is a Home Run
Maybe you don’t have time to paint and stain a fence. Or maybe you would prefer a view with the protection a chain link fence offers. When installed correctly, chain link fences have most of the advantages of conventional wood fences, with several distinct advantages:
Chain link fences are a great low-cost alternative to wood or vinyl fencing. Chain link fence material costs significantly lower than many other types of fencing material and when you do chain link fence installation yourself, you can save even further.
Chain link fences are built to last. The wire mesh cloth that gives chain link fencing its signature look is galvanized with a corrosion-resistant zinc coating for superior protection against rain, snow or frost. In the case of breaks in the mesh, a chemical treatment process called cathodic protection allows the individual wires to self-heal to prevent rust from forming.
Unlike wood fences that require regular maintenance to keep looking sharp, chain link fences don’t require any additional care and will last for years. If you choose chain link, you won’t need stain, paint or sealer—just soapy water, a brush, and a hose. And vinyl coated chain link fences last even longer.
A major benefit of chain link fences is the ability to see the other side. You can rest easy knowing your home is protected from intruders, trespassers, and wild animals.
Keeping Your Bases Covered
When planning your chain link fence, consider what its purpose will be. Not all chain link fences are the same, and there are several slight variations that are better suited for different purposes.
First is the type of gauge. Chain link fence wire comes in a variety of thicknesses, from the thinnest available (11 gauge), medium thickness (10 gauge), to heavy-duty (9 gauge). The diameter of the wire mesh is another aspect to keep in mind, as a fence built primarily for security may need a heavier, tighter wire than one for establishing a play area.
Making the Right Call
Chain link fences aren’t one-size-fits-all – there are many creative ways to customize your fence to stand out from the crowd.
If you would like a chain link fence but prefer to keep it looking newer, there are options with a vinyl coating that can help you preserve the look of your chain link fence. Vinyl-coated chain link fences and chain link gates can last longer, looking better than an inexpensive chain link fence that begins to show signs of weather in a few years. Many appreciate that a vinyl-coated chain link fence is also available in more than the standard silver or black color, too. They also have a good reputation among chain link fence contractors for being less apt to be tampered with. When choosing a vinyl-coated fence, make sure the posts and top rail are reinforced. Without stronger supports, the extra weight of the vinyl coating can lead to sagging over the years.
The wide variety of chain link gate options available means there’s a fence for every situation.
Single walk-through gates: The most popular choice, single walk-through gates fit one person at a time. Wider models can even let riding lawn mowers pass. Single gates are typically available in 36-, 42-, and 48-inch widths.
- Double drive gates: Double drive chain link fence gates open extra wide to allow cars or trucks through. They’re a great choice for driveways or field fences. These gates are made up of two gate halves that connect in the center, and they generally come in 10- or 12-feet widths.
- Rolling opening or sliding gates: Rolling opening gates provide a boost of convenience when installing a gate over a large opening. These gates sit on rollers on the ground, letting you walk them closed. Because they don’t have to swing out to open, rolling opening gates take up less space than double drive and are a great choice for tight spaces.
- Automatic: For larger gates, you can install an automatic opener for added convenience. Nothing beats being able to stay in the car when the weather takes a bad turn.
- Lockable: All types of chain link fence gates can be fitted with locks for extra security.
With so many options for security and privacy and nearly zero maintenance required, chain link fencing is a solid choice for any commercial or residential fencing project. Whether you’re looking to keep out grounders or just want to be safe at home base, a chain link fence will knock it out of the park every time.
