FAQ About Chain Link Fences
Why should I install a chain-link fence?
Homeowners with animals choose chain-link because it’s sturdy enough to keep your animals in and wild animals out. Business owners use it because it’s one of the most secure types of fencing available, perfect for protecting commercial spaces that are often left unoccupied.
Will my chain-link fence rust?
Manufacturers make chain-link from galvanized steel coated in zinc to prevent rust and corrosion. Powder-coatings, vinyl coverings, and polyolefin coatings offer further protection from the elements.
Do they come in colored varieties?
These fencing systems are available in black, brown, green, and sometimes white. Posts, rails, caps, and fittings match the color of the wire mesh.
Does chain-link come in different sizes?
Chain-link fences are available in a wide variety of heights, gauges, and patterns (sizes). Federal law requires fences that enclose pools to have diamonds smaller than 2-inches. For other uses, ask your local fencing professional for sizing advice.
Do thicker posts make the fence stronger?
While more substantial fence posts are available, adding more posts strengthens a chain-link fence much more effectively. Doing so increases the stability of the fence as a whole, and offers more anchoring points with the ground.
Can you install them on a steep hill?
Yes, fencing contractors install extra terminal posts at the top and bottom of a hill when installing chain-link on any size incline. Additionally, they cut the wire mesh to accommodate the hill’s grade.
