WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF CHAIN LINK FENCING? WOULD A WOOD FENCE BE MORE SUITABLE?
Well, there are several advantages to a chain link fence, but whether or not they are advantages for you, depends on your needs and goals.
ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS:
WILL THE FENCE BE FOR A buisness OR A RESIDENCE?
If it is FOR A buisness, likely you will opt for chain link, but not always. Many buisnesses have
specific reasons that they opt for a wood fence, often for privacy or beautification purposes.
WHAT DO YOU WANT THE FINISHED PRODUCT TO LOOK LIKE? If you need a RESIDENTIAL FENCE, then deciding between wood and
chain link will depend partly on what you want the finished product to look like. Do you want your fence to blend into nature? Do you want an aesthetic
appeal more easily acheived with a wood fence?
WHAT WILL BE THE PURPOSE OF THE FENCE? Will it contain children or animals? Will it keep animals out?
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN LOW MAINTENANCE? If you opt for wood, how do you feel about maintenance? A WOOD FENCE
in our NorthWest climate will need to be re-stained about every 4-7 years to prolong the lifespan of the wood. But there is certain appeal that can only come
form a well maintained CEDAR FENCE surrounding a beautifully landscaped yard. On the other hand, a chain link fence will withstand our wet climate and
littel or no help form YOU!
IS COST A MAJOR CONCERN?
A chain link fence will likely cost 20-35% less than the average natural wood fence. Of course, VINYL COATED CHAIN LINK fences have become
very popular -and many high end home builders and buyers opt for black or green. However, Vinyl coated is still less expensive than a cedar fence,
and is virtually MAINTENANCE FREE. Also, there are options available to increase the privacy of your chain link fence. To take a look, simply google: "images of chain link slat options."
DO YOU NEED A FENCE FOR SECURITY PURPOSES? If so, then you will need to consider fence height as well as gauge. The heftier gauge mesh will
obviously result in a stronger finished product. And there are added options, like barbed wire or razor wire and locked gates, wich can dramatically increase
the security factor.
