With chain link fencing, the posts, brackets and the actual chain links are all galvanized metal to retard rusting. Many people wouldn't consider chain link outside of an urban setting, but others find it to be an inexpensive option per foot. In the past decade, there's been a trend to coat the chain link and the posts with colored vinyl to weatherproof it. This not only extends it's already long life expectancy but it also can dramatically improve it's appearance. A Chain link fence requires little routine maintenance.

In the areas where the ground can freeze during the winter season. It will be extremely important to set the posts a minimum of 6 inches below the frost line. For all other applications.

Fences serve a variety of purposes, from privacy to security to landscape appeal. And just as uses for fencing vary, so do the materials available for fence building. Wood, vinyl, aluminum, and iron fencing are all popular fencing materials. Each material has its own range of styles and grades.

There are hand tools that can do the job however these require fairly extensive physical effort and should only be considered for smaller jobs. There are gas powered tools which can make quick work of even large jobs requiring many post holes to be drilled however this powerful machinery can be dangerous to use and has a bad reputation as being something that has the potential to cause injury.

This design starts out as a basic privacy with the addition of lattice added to the top. The lattice gets framed in with additional lumber for support. Most people agree that the lattice top is the best looking of the three styles. The only drawback is the price.

Even though pine is 'pressure treated', it still needs to be sealed after installation, and we'd also recommend painting or staining on a two year cycle if you want to enjoy it for many years. The preventive maintenance needs for Chain Link and Synthetic fencing are nil. Just make a periodic inspection looking for damage or unusual wear and tear.
