The most economical choice – cheap upfront costs, long lasting, and maintenance free. Chain link has remained popular solution for perimeter fences for both residential and commerical use. Chain link manages to meld security and durability into an affordable package which arguably provides the highest value, especially when fencing off larger property areas.

The mesh is made out of a galvanized core wire, with a vinyl coating fused over the outer diameter.

One consideration for chain link fencing in a residential neighborhood is that it may not increase the property value, at least not as much as a wooden, vinyl, or ornamental fence would. Depending on your neighborhood, you may be better off going with a style that is more attractive to look at. If you aren’t living in a forever home, then property value should be a main consideration.

Although in this situation a chain link fence may not be the ideal solution, chain link fences certainly still have a footing in the market place, with many great use cases. If your main concerns are economically marking the boundaries of your property, then chain link may be right for you.

One of the most ideal cases for a chain link fence is for a large business yard, in order to save on the upfront costs, and maintenance costs, while still providing a level of security to the assets it fences in.
