Advantages of Installing a Chain Link Fence in Vancouver
When you’re considering the installation of a chain link fence in Vancouver, you’ll want to keep in mind the various benefits!
Long-Lasting and Durable – Chain link fencing consists of galvanized steel, which has the ability to stand up to the elements and other forms of wear for years to come. An added benefit is that a chain link fence can be painted or coated to further defend against corrosion from ice and snow and exposure to rain and sunlight.
Easy to Repair – If a chain link fence is damaged due to vandalism, accidents or other causes, the section in question can be easily cut out and replaced. From a design perspective, the new section of galvanized steel will blend right in with the existing fencing, meaning you won’t ever need to replace the entire fence.
Simple Maintenance – When it comes to chain link fencing, there is virtually no maintenance required at all. The team at Western Fence & Gate recommends hosing down your chain link fence with soap and water every so often to give it a fresh and shiny look.
Low Purchase and Installation Costs – Compared to other types of fencing, a chain link fence is very affordable, as is the installation. It’s typically cheaper to install than brick, PVC, wood and other forms of residential fencing.
Choosing Your Style of Chain Link Fence
Choosing a style of chain link fence is an important decision both in terms of your fencing needs and from a design perspective. Luckily, the team at Western Fence & Gate has the knowledge and experience to help you make the best decision, whether you’re installing chain link fencing at your home or business.
There are two important steps that play into the decision making process:
Diameter – The diameter of the wire—also known as the gauge—determines how much galvanized steel is contained within the fabric. The smaller the gauge number is, the more steel is included, resulting in a higher quality fence.
Mesh Size – This determines the distance between the wires in the mesh of the fencing. In layman’s terms, this is the size of each “diamond” shape throughout the entirety of your fence. Our team will accommodate various sizes depending upon your preference.
