by Norman Beck

When it comes to building a fence for your home there are many great options, and most of them are going to do the job for you. However, you want to pick the fence that works best for you. There are many different types of fences and each type of fence provides benefits, but may also have a few drawbacks. One type of fence that you should consider is a chain link fence. There are many different benefits that a chain link fence provides that you may not know about. This article is going to go over a few aspects of chain link fences, and why they make a great choice.


Many poeple do not know that chain link fences are created out of galvanized steel. When you hear the word galvanized that is just when the steel has had a protective coating of zinc applied to the steel. This allows the steel to be more resistant to rust and other corrosion. So, chain link fences are durable to begin with, but there are other things that can be done to a chain link fence to make it even more durable. You can spray paint the fence to make it even more durable, but often you can have the chain link fence painted for you. You can even have the chain link fence coated with rubber.


When most people picture a chain link fence in their head they think of the gray chain link fence that is most common. You need to know that there are many different options when it comes to chain link fencing. You can get any color and many different heights for your chain link fence. The color allows you to make your fence more unique while the height of the fence allows you to have more utility in your fence. If you are trying to keep a dog in your yard, a higher fence may need to be installed.

Temporary Or Long Term Use

A chain link fence can be used for the temporary or installed for the long run. The steel posts that are used for the fence can easily be pulled if you want, and then the chain link fence can be rolled up. This allows you to move the fence, and then re-install if you want. However, if you are wanting the fence to be long term, you can have the steel posts cemented into the ground and you have a long term fence installed.

About Me

Keeping Kitty Contained in a Fenced in Yard

I have loved cats ever since I was a child. My parents let our cat roam around the yard without a fence when I was a child, but when I adopted my first cat as an adult, I was much too afraid that she would run off to let her outside. After keeping her as an "indoor cat" for a few years, I decided to look into backyard fencing options that she might not be able to climb or jump over. I put a lot of research into those options, so I decided to start sharing what I learned on a blog to help other cat owners and anyone else who is looking for a fence for a specific need. I have been very lucky and my cat hasn't jumped over my fence at all and she now loves her fenced in back yard!
