Myth: Chain Link Fence is Unattractive

If you are one of those people who has been influenced by the negative images of chain link fences, you’ll be pleased to know that chain link fences have improved over the years. Advancements in new materials and installation techniques have benefitted the fencing industry as a whole, and chain link fencing is no exception. Below we have shared the main improvement we have seen when it comes to chain link fences. 

Chain Link Fences for Security

Surprisingly, chain link fences are very strong and work well for security purposes, especially when you purchase thicker commercial-grade material. While some styles are easy to climb, there are ways to make climbing chain link fences more difficult, including opting for a smaller diamond pattern to reduce toehold. Contact us to learn more about the benefits of chain link fences for both Houma residential fence and commercial fence projects.

PVC and Polymer Coated Chain Link Fence

If you are not a fan of the classic steel color of galvanized fence, add a PVC coating to soften the look and provide a more custom appearance to your fence. We offer PVC coating in black, and we also offer polymer coating, which is a powdered coating. Both PVC and polymer add a layer of rubberized coating that softens the overall look of chain link fencing and adds another layer of rust protection and weather damage. Contact us with any questions you have about PVC or polymer coating and to see if either of these is a good fit for your specific needs.
