Chain Link Fence

Multi-Purpose Fence

Chain link fence is common in commercial and residential fencing. It is economical design allows it to be functional for many purposes. Chain link is manufactured in a variety of heights and colors to suit all your needs.

Residential Fence

Chain Link Fencing can provide boundaries for containment or restriction. An excellent option for homeowners with a pool. Most towns and cities require a secure fence to surround any pool for safety. If you are a pet owner, a chain link fence is a safe and responsible option for your pets. Accidents happen, and sometimes our pets sneak out the door. Chain link fencing can protect them from getting out the yard and into harm’s way.

A chain-link perimeter fence can keep unwanted foot traffic out of your yard. Whether you live in a rural or suburban area, fencing can reduce both human and animals’ traffic. Chain link fencing can discourage deer from entering the yard to eat plants or gardens. It can prevent stray or wild animals from entering the yard, and it creates a barrier to deter unwanted visitors. Reducing easy access to your yard increases your home security.

The more difficult it is to access your property, the less likely it will be that someone tries to enter or take from your property. Chain link makes it more challenging to enter, but it will not reduce visibility inside the fence line. Keep your valuables in safe, secure places out of view. A privacy fence is the best option for reducing visibility and increasing security.

Commercial Chain Link Fence

Protecting your business and its assets is essential. A six-foot chain link is a popular option for businesses. Typically with commercial construction, larger diameter posts and rails are added for increased durability. For added security and integrity, diagonal trusses and wire are added as post toppers to deter climbing.

Materials and MaintenanceMetal chain link fence with grass and trees in the background.

Chain link is galvanized metal wire woven together in a web-type pattern. The wire is manufactured in various gauges or widths. Chain link can be coated in a variety of colors to add a custom feel. Typically available in white, green, brown, or black. White is often seen around pools or as perimeter fencing. Green and brown are choices used to blend into surrounding landscapes like bushes or trees. Black gives a more upscale feel, similar to black iron fencing. Maintenance is easy. Chain link can be hosed down to keep it free of debris. Gentle scrubbing with a sponge can remove stuck-on dirt. Clean Chain-link can be painted for longevity and give it a like-new feel. To avoid corrosion or damage, keep plants or grasses trimmed away and from growing on the fence.

Pre- Planning

Before contacting your fencing company, consider if you need Home Owner Association permission. Inquiring before the project starts will save you from a lot of trouble later if you break ground without permission. After completing the pre-planning phase, you can begin to plan the fence’s design, location, and size. Measure the dimensions you wish to use. Contact your local authorities to ensure it is safe to dig in the intended area.


We install chain link fence posts no more than 10 feet apart. Posts are set in concrete with a gravel base or driven deep into the soil to provide a solid anchor. Installing chain link fence posts with concrete allows us to slope the concrete away from the center. Sloping the concrete allows water to run away from the post’s base instead of collecting at the bottom. Water collection at the ground level can result in corrosion or damage to the post.

Posts set in concrete must cure for several days. Once posts are secure, the webbing is then stretched using a fence puller and wired to the posts. We add a top rail to fix the chain link for added support. Aluminum wire is then run through the bottom of the webbing for added tension and integrity. You may choose to add fence post toppers for a custom, detailed appearance.
