Benefits of a Chain Link Fence

A chain link fence can be the best fit to secure your residential property.

Fences are an essential part of most residential properties. They provide safety and security, especially if your family includes pets or small children. They also can provide privacy and improve property value. When choosing a residential fencing material, many people overlook chain link because they think it’s too boring, too industrial, or simply too plain. The reality is, however, that chain link fencing comes in a variety of options and offers a host of benefits.


A chain link fence is a highly durable investment in your property. They require very little maintenance, unlike the residential favorite, wood, which requires staining periodically and will still eventually rot. Chain link fences are also impervious to pest and insect damage since they are made of steel.


Chain link fencing is easily the best security option for the cost. While it may look industrial, it costs much less than almost all of the other popular residential fencing materials. And the security it provides can’t be beat.


Chain link fencing is one of your most secure fencing options. It is the go-to choice for correctional facilities, government and military bases, and other high-security establishments. Chain link fences are made by interlocking or weaving coated steel wires and securing them to steel posts. A chain link fence can be anywhere from 3 to 12 feet high, typically, and while they do allow people to look through, they provide a highly secure fencing solution.

Quick To Install

Chain link is very quick to install, if you know what you’re doing. It is worth having a professional come out and install the fence for you, simply because they have the skills and tools to do it quickly and correctly. Even with professional installation, you will still have a cost-effective fence, and it won’t take long to have the work completed.

Aesthetically Pleasing

Aesthetically pleasing is probably not a term that immediately comes to mind when you picture a chain link fence. There are actually a variety of options available. You can choose from either a swinging or sliding gate. You can also opt for colored coating rather than the standard silver. While it may not be as high-end as a wood or wrought iron fence, it will get the job done and look great for years with minimal maintenance.
