Chain link fencing is popular for multiple locations. It can provide an added level of security, protect children and pets, and its one of the most affordable options available. It’s equally applicable for residential, commercial and industrial uses. The disadvantage is that it will rust if a vinyl coating isn’t applied.
Chain link fences are constructed from galvanized steel or aluminum with a zinc coating to make it last longer. Galvanized steel takes a long time to rust, but it will. Aluminum won’t rust, but it does corrode. Chain link fencing typically lasts 20 to 30 years and individuals will want it to retain its appearance for as long as possible.
A vinyl coating for chain link fencing typically comes with a 10-to-15-year warranty against fading, peeling and chipping. The coating is either plastic or a synthetic resin and the smaller the gauge of wire used, the stronger the fence will be. However, eventually the metal will begin to deteriorate. A coating is effective for delaying that process, easy to maintain, and it’s relatively inexpensive.
Without a vinyl coating, individuals will need to periodically clean their fence with a good stiff brush to remove rust that appears. It also requires the time-consuming task of inspecting the fence for rust and corrosion.
Vinyl coatings are available in black, brown, green and white to accommodate a range of aesthetic concerns. A black vinyl coating gives the fencing a softer appearance and tends to blend with plantings. A green coating also blends with foliage, but it is typically more obvious than black.
White vinyl coatings evoke a clinical sense, but can be effective in certain types of landscapes. A brown coating tends to complement multiple settings and is a color that’s popular for individuals that practice Feng Shui in their natural environment.
