Choosing Chain-Link for the Home

Chain-link fencing company provides the skinny on why wonderful wire is catching on with homeowners

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 28, 2016) - QS Fencing installs a lot of chain-link fences all over the lower mainland. As a fencing repair and installation company, they know that chain-link is the best choice when it come to flat out functionality. For more, go to:

Low maintenance, durable, and relatively inexpensive, chain-link is often used in industrial or commercial settings, whether it's for marking boundaries or keeping unauthorized personnel safe. However, the trend is catching on for residential properties as well.

While the white picket is an ever-green favourite among homeowners, the constant repair, painting and upkeep mandated by Vancouver's damp climate makes it an expensive option-even if the initial installation is relatively cheap. Over the years, it adds up, often surpassing the expense of chain-link fencing or even a metal picket.

Once a wire fence is installed, that's it. Even basic models are covered with a galvanized coating, which makes them resistant to the weather. For clients who prefer a more aesthetic look, chain-link fences can be coated in a heavy-duty vinyl, which is available in a variety of colours.

Chain-link fencing is impervious to heat and cold and can be hosed off using plain water when it gets dirty. For do it yourself gardeners, the individual links are generally too small for rabbits and other similarly sized pests. Additionally, the fences can be customized with gates, lighting, wire, and privacy slats to suit different purposes.

Although aesthetic appearance still makes many home owners hesitant about chain-link fencing, many are getting imaginative and turn towards beautiful greenery, shrubs, and flowering vines to camouflage this fencing system. For many homeowners, the low-to-no maintenance bonus is worth a little creative intervention.
