Inspecting your Chain Link Fence

Even though chain link is strong, a quick yearly inspection can drastically minimize potential damages and costs. Chain link is made from steel wire. A galvanized coloured coating can be applied (choose from green, black-brown, blue, or white). However, if this coating is damaged, water can seep in causing rust and damage.

The diamond shape of the chain link fence works to prevent moisture from accumulating. Moisture and dampness slide off easily, which decreases the potential for rust and increases the life of the fence. Broken links should be repaired promptly if noticed.

Vegetation is another red flag. While some people choose to camouflage their fence with flowering vines and other vegetation, the frame at the vase should remain clear. Be wary of roots, ivy, and other heavy ground vegetation that can damage the structural integrity of chain link fences. Plant and root maintenance is generally less urgent for chain link than other types of fences, but be sure not to leave it for long.

Fence Repairs

Even durable chain link fencing will eventually need some care, depending on when it was installed. Often the requirements will be cosmetic, just a bit of maintenance to increase a property's shape and appeal.
