6 Reasons to Install a Chain Link Fence


Do you want your yard to be safer and more secure? If so, you need to install a fence. One of the most desired types of fences we installed is a chain link fence. There are a number of reasons so many people select chain link fence for their home and business. View some of the benefits of chain link fences below:

What Is Chain Link Fencing?

A chain-link fence (also referred to as cyclone fence, hurricane fence, chain-wire fence, wire-netting, wire-mesh fence, or diamond-mesh fence) is a type of mesh fence made from galvanized or vinyl coated steel wire. The wires are vertically and are bent into a zig-zag pattern.


Our chain link fences come in two finishes: galvanized steel and vinyl-coated.

Our vinyl coated chain link comes in three colors, black, brown, and green (black vinyl being the most common color), allowing for a more attractive appearance while maintaining the same functionality as the standard galvanized steel chain link.


1. Chain Link Fences are Affordable

Chain link fence installation cost is usually more affordable than comparative alternatives like iron or vinyl fences. If you want a durable fence that is more economical, this may be a great fit for you!


2. Easy to Care for

Chain link fencing is very easy to care for. It doesn’t require a lot of your effort to stay looking great. To care for your chain link fence, you should clean it and check it for damage once a year.

You can clean off your chain link fence with a hose or a brush if you find any buildup from the elements or pets.

Every year we fix a lot of chain link that was cut by transient traffic or in a burglary as well as fences and gates that are damaged in traffic accidents.

4. Adds Security to Your Yard

Installing any fence will help add a considerable amount of security to your yard. Chain link fencing is no exception.


A chain link fence will help to keep animals and people out of your yard space. There are many options we can add to help increase the functionality of your fence including standard privacy slats or privacy plus slats for extra visual protection. In commercial applications we can install barb wire or razor ribbon on top for added protection on the top. Any way about it, chain link is a fantastic deterrent to keep people and animals out of your yard space.

Part of the reason people like chain link fences has to do with the gates that can be built. We install, repair, and replace many person gates and larger driveway size double swing and slide gates. These gates can be large like 20 feet for a driveway or small for a person gate.


5. Provides Safety for Animals and Children

Having a chain link fence can help protect your animals and children. They help to keep your pets and children inside the safety of your yard while helping to keep other animals out.

Many of our customers have been building their pets their own dog run and kennel areas in the yard. Using chain link fencing is an affordable way to give your pet its own space to stretch its legs!

A privacy chain-link fence is a popular option for people looking for a fence for their home or business that want to keep outside eyes from seeing into the property.

If you want to add privacy slats to your existing chain-link fence and modify your current fence for added privacy, increased security, or change of appearance, it is probably possible to do this as well.

There are two levels of privacy slats:  The first is standard Viewguard. While it is the most common style of privacy slat and are the most economical there are slight gaps that you can still see through.  A higher level of privacy slat is called Viewguard PLUS. While the cost is a little more, this style of slat provides a higher level of privacy due to the wings that cover between each slat where the twist ties are.

If you live in a busy neighborhood, this type of fence will guarantee privacy. It can also be used to fence off a backyard swimming pool.

Popular Chain Link Fence Heights

In Sacramento, Placer and El Dorado Counties we find the most common installed fence heights to be  4 ft, 5 ft,  and 6 ft for residential fencing. In some commercial fence projects we see anywhere from 7 feet tall to 10 feet tall.

Common mesh gauges are 11 for residential and 9 gauge for commercial. Diamond width can also vary based on need, with the standard diamond width being 2″.

The popularity of chain-link in the Sacramento area is from its relatively low cost and that the open weave does not obscure sunlight or visibility from either side of the fence. You can make a chain-link fence semi-opaque by inserting privacy slats within the mesh. Also, you can increase privacy by allowing ivy to grow and interweave itself throughout the fence.

How Long Does It Take To Install a Chain Link Fence?

 The amount of time it takes to install a chain link fence varies based on the size of your property, but it is generally between one and two days. You'll also need to take into account any prep work that may need to be done before installing the fence.

My Property Is Very Hilly. Will That Make It More Difficult To Install the Fence?

Unfortunately yes, but we can still probably get it installed! If your property is hilly, it will make it more challenging to install a chain link fence. There are many factors that go into installing a fence, such as the size of your property, whether or not there are any obstacles (such as large trees), and how close you want the fence to be to other structures on your property.

That doesn't mean that it's impossible, but it does mean that you should be prepared for some extra work.  

How Much Does It Cost To Install a Chain Link Fence?

This depends on a number of factors. The size of your property will be the biggest factor in how much it costs to install a chain link fence. The more land you have, the more fencing material you will need and the higher your installation cost will be.


Another factor that determines the cost is whether or not there are any obstacles like large trees or bushes on your property. If there are any and they need to be removed before you can install your fence, it will also increase the installation cost.

Other factors that may increase the cost of installation include the type of material you choose, the height of the fence, the coating you want for your fence, and whether or not you want to add a gate to the installation. Of course, you'll also need to factor in the cost of labor if you intend to hire professional help. 

Do I Need a Permit To Install a Chain Link Fence?

You may need a permit to install a new fence, depending on where you live. Some cities or counties require you to obtain a permit before you install a new fence. If your city does not have this requirement, it's still a good idea to check with the local planning and building departments before you start work on your project.

Generally, if you live in an area that is largely populated, chances are you will need a permit. If you want to erect a privacy fence that's taller than 6 feet, you'll also need a permit.  

Why Should I Get a Chain Link Fence Installed Versus Other Types of Fencing?

Chain link fencing is a very popular choice for homeowners because it's durable, reliable, easy to install, less expensive, and can be used for many different applications. In addition to their durability, chain link fences are also great at keeping people out of your yard or garden because they're difficult to climb over or through. They are also easy to repair and maintain.

What Types of Chain Link Fences Are Available?

There are different types of chain link fences, but the most popular are galvanized and PVC. Galvanized chain link fences are made from steel that has been coated with zinc, which helps prevent rusting and corrosion. PVC chain link fences are made from plastic-coated wire and offer more flexibility than galvanized chain link fences. They're also less expensive than galvanized versions but may have a shorter lifespan.

What Are the Different Heights Available for Chain Link Fences?

Chain link fences are available in heights ranging from 3 feet to 6 feet, but they can also be found at 7 to  12 feet tall. The height of a chain link fence will depend on the purpose for which it's being installed. For example, 3-foot fences are often used around playgrounds or other areas where children play. On the other hand, 6-foot tall fences are ideal for keeping out unwanted visitors and animals.

Does a Chain Link Fence Require Maintenance?

Yes, a chain link fence does require regular maintenance, but it is less than other types of fencing.  The most important part is to visually inspect the fence and look for any damage. Chain link is a strong fence material but it is sometimes damaged by intruders who try to cut the mesh. Additionally, it is good to check the fence yearly for damage caused by vehicles or falling tree branches. By addressing the issues as they come up we are able to prevent the wire mesh from sagging and causing gaps in your barrier, as well as keeping the fence looking great! 


What Can I Do To Help Prolong the Life of My Fence?

There are several steps you can take to help prolong the life of your chain link fence and ensure it stays in good shape. These steps include:

  • Regularly inspecting it for damage, such as holes or frayed wires. If you find any damage, repair it immediately.

  • Keeping up on maintenance by tightening all loose wires and checking for signs of wear and tear.

  • Cleaning your fence regularly. Cleaning will help keep it looking nice, but it will also prevent dirt and debris from accumulating and causing damage.

  • Applying a rust inhibitor yearly. It will keep it looking new and prevent the metal from oxidizing and rusting.


Final Remarks

Installing a chain link fence can be a great way to add security and privacy to your property. It’s also ideal if you have pets or children who need supervision, as it will prevent them from wandering off into unsafe areas.

The fence is easy to install and will last for years if you take care of it properly. So if you're looking to add a secure and attractive fence to your property, consider installing a chain link fence. It will provide years of protection and security for you and your family.
