Get More Than A Basic Chain-Link Fence By Picking Certain Features

Ivan May

When you drive around and look at a lot of homes in different neighborhoods, you may come across many properties with beautiful fences. But, you may also see some properties with standard chain-link fences that can achieve most of what you want with your own property.

If you are not a huge fan of the looks or functionality of a basic chain-link fence, you should hire a fence company to install a chain-link fence with extra features on your property.

Vinyl Coated

A smart feature to get with your chain-link fence is vinyl coating. This can have a huge impact on your experience as a homeowner because it will give the entire fence a sleek look. It will also make it easier to maintain the fence since the coating will keep corrosion from developing.

If you think that you may live in the home for a long time, you will appreciate how much protection vinyl coating can provide to the fence. Through the years and after many rain storms, you will not have to worry about rust buildup, but a basic chain-link fence may have some issues.


When you see chain-link fences, you may notice that most of them are the same color. By getting vinyl coating, you will have an opportunity to change the color of the fence. For instance, if you want the fence to blend in with a green and luscious backyard, you can go with brown or green. The fence will be harder to spot when you have a backdrop of grass, trees, and bushes.

If you want the fence to stand out and be an attractive feature for the property, you should not hesitate to go with a different color such as white. This will work well with almost any home because it is a neutral color, which means you can put it on a property with bold colors elsewhere.

Privacy Slats

A chain-link fence on its own will not provide you with much privacy. But, you can have professionals install privacy slats on the fence to give you the same privacy as a solid wood fence. You can get even more creative with the fence's appearance by picking from various slat colors.

Installing a standard chain-link fence on your property will come with some benefits. But, you will be more satisfied with your fence when you invest in extra features to make it even better.
