Vancouver Chain-Link Fencing Company Offers Tips on Repair

Aluminum fence repair takes special skills, according to article by Vancouver fencing company

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - August 16, 2017) - As a Vancouver-based company that specializes in fencing repair and installation, the team at QS Fencing recognizes that chain-link fencing is an affordable and effective way to protect your property. However, durable does not equal indestructible. To help people make sense of the fencing world, the company has published a blog on fencing repair for when things go wrong. For more, go to:

For anyone who has ever wondered what's involved when it comes to fixing a chain-link fence, the answer is-it depends! For example, if the fence is sagging, chances are it's because of a loose fence post or a weak foundation. Problems like these need to be attended to right away before they get worse, but they are also one of the easiest to handle. Once the loose post is located, you can simply dig around it and pour concrete into place, then plop the fence post back in and use the struts to secure it.

Direct damage to the fence caused by weather or falling trees can be more complicated. And even under the best conditions, rust is eventually going to become a problem.

If the chain-link fence rail needs repairing, it's going to require cutting it with a hacksaw, followed by removing the post cap, brace bands, and tension bands, before installing the new rail and reattaching everything again.

If only a small part of the chain-link mesh needs replacing, things are a bit easier. Once the tension bar is removed, it's possible to cut out the damaged mesh and cut a section of fresh chain-link to fill the hole. After that, it's a matter of weaving the pieces together using pliers and tightening it up once the tension bar is reattached.

Even fixing a loose post can be more difficult than it first appears, depending on the quality of ground around the post and any elevation changes. Typically, repairing any kind of metal fence requires special knowledge and training.

For professional, long-lasting results, rely on the professionals at QS Fencing for a job that's fast and professional every time.
