Signs You May be in Need of New Chain Link Fence Installation

When compared to other fencing options, chain link fences are one of the most durable options available, and when properly maintained, they can last for decades. However, as with anything else, your chain link fence will begin to deteriorate over time and will eventually need to be replaced.

Yet, how will you know when this has happened? You may not know the age of your fence, and the age of a fence is not necessarily an indicator that it is in need of replacing. Fortunately, your fence will begin to show clearly visible signs that it is time to have it replaced.

Here are two of the primary signs you can look out for to help you to determine when you may be in need of new fence installation.

Large Holes

 

You will first want to be on the lookout for holes in your fence, as this will be one of the easiest problems to detect. Wind, accidents, rust, and aging are all factors that can cause sections of your chain link fence to break off and fall away. This can be a major problem, as such breaches in your fence can leave your property vulnerable to intrusions. Small holes, though, may not mean that your fence needs to be replaced, as these can sometimes be repaired.

However, if the fence damage is large, or if there are many holes, then the damage may be irreparable. In this case, you will want to have your fence replaced. Either way, you will want to have holes in your fence taken care of in order to ensure its safety.

Rust 

 

Rust, as many people know, can mean the end of a metal fence. It will corrode and eat away at your fence until it is no longer structurally sound, or safe. Fortunately, most metal fences have a special coating that will help them to withstand rusting. However, this coating will degrade over time, which can leave your fence vulnerable to rusting.

If you notice rusting on your chain link fence, then you will likely need to consider having it replaced before too long. Not only does this rusting mean that your fence may no longer be structurally sound, but also, it could indicate that your fence is deteriorating and may soon need replacement.

It is important to know the signs that you chain link fence need replacing. Contact us to learn more about these signs as well as to find out about having your fence replaced.
