Chain-link fencing is a durable, economical, and functional option for your home or business. This type of fence features woven strands of lightweight yet durable galvanized or coated steel in a diamond pattern that allows for both security and visibility. Chain-link fences are used in a variety of settings to suit many different residential and commercial needs.
Residential Uses and Benefits
Chain-link fences may be used to enclose your entire yard or to close off small portions of it. Its distinct open-style weave allows you to easily see what is going on behind the fence while providing a sturdy barrier for pets or children. Chain-link fences are often used in residential yards as pool barriers and dog runs. If you prefer more privacy, opaque slats can be woven through the diamond pattern.
Commercial Uses and Benefits
Commercial businesses and industrial areas frequently make use of chain-link fencing to enclose property or hazardous areas such as generators and forced air units. Chain-link fencing is a lightweight, economical option that can provide a secure border for large spaces at less cost than other types of fencing. Gates and locks can be installed and removed with ease to provide or alter points of access.
Recreational Uses and Benefits
Chain-link fencing is a popular choice for parks and recreational areas, particularly baseball fields. Spectators can safely watch the game through the fencing without worrying about stray balls or equipment. Chain-link fences are also used to economically enclose park spaces without interfering with the landscape. Options such as vinyl color-coating allow fencing to blend into greenery while still providing a much-needed barrier.

A privacy fence is a handsome and functional addition to any home. Privacy fencing allows you to feel safe and comfortable in your yard. Many homeowners choose to install a privacy fence for a variety of reasons beyond simple privacy. These fences provide definition, protection, and style for your home and yard that you are sure to enjoy.
In addition to blocking out unwanted views, privacy fences also block out unwanted noise. The solid construction of your fence will dampen outside sounds to turn your yard into a quieter, more enjoyable place for you and your family. Fencing reduces noise pollution from a variety of outside sources, including busy roads and loud neighbors, to improve the livability of your yard and your home.
Protection from the Elements
Privacy fences are built without spaces between adjacent posts to create a continual border around your yard. This offers your space protection from the elements. Privacy fencing acts as an ideal windbreak to protect plants, furniture, and decor from damaging gusts. Additionally, placing plants that require less sunlight near the base of your fence can provide them with much-needed shade for part of the day.
Style and Flair
A privacy fence can lay the foundation for a stylish private yard. You can choose a fencing style that accentuates your home’s style and provides an elegant backdrop for landscaping or furniture. Privacy fencing can act as an anchor point for shades, screens, gates, and climbing vines. Fencing can be used to create “rooms” in a large backyard to increase the functionality and appeal of your space.

Vinyl is a popular choice for fence installations all over the country. Fence companies love it, homeowners love it, and even prospective homebuyers love it. Vinyl fencing brings with it huge benefits over other types of fencing. Here are three of them:
In order to get a specific color for most other types of fencing, you have to paint it. This means that you’ll need to refresh the fence periodically as the paint chips and wears away due to age and exposure to the elements. Vinyl, on the other hand, is available in virtually any color you could want, and its color doesn’t chip off. Moreover, keeping your vinyl fence looking new is as simple as giving it a good hose-down once or twice a year—no sanding, pressure washing, or painting required!
Most people don’t want to have to repeat a fence installation every few years, nor can they afford to. Vinyl is slightly more expensive than wood or other fencing materials up front, but it pays for itself over time and may last as long as 50 years. You won’t have as much need for fence repair with vinyl as you would with wood. Also, because of its ease of maintenance and durability, a vinyl fence can be enjoyed for as long as you live in the house and will attract potential homebuyers when you wish to sell.
Vinyl fencing can be textured to replicate the appearance of wood, or it can be slick and smooth for a perfectly clean and contemporary look. You can find vinyl fencing in a multitude of styles, from picket fencing to highly ornamental options. Few other options can give you so much flexibility with your fence installation. Don’t forget about the endless color options either!
