chain fence features popular with Columbus Ohio homeowners

Key Features of Chain Link Fencing

There are four main components that determine the strength and longevity of a chain link fence at properties across Columbus Ohio.

The basic structure of a chain-link fence consists of key features that create a durable border for a property. The framework of the fence is made up of posts and rails, which are constructed of chain link fence tubing. This framework, or "skeleton," is galvanized coated to provide protection against corrosion and includes top rail, line posts, and terminal posts. The chain link fabric is commonly known as wire or mesh and is formed by a series of spirals woven together to create a diamond pattern. It is available in a variety of sizes and gauges.

When properly installed by our expert fence pros, our professional-grade posts will stand strong and hold up, keeping your chain link fence secure for many years. Quality matters!

Columbus Ohio chain link rails

Durable Chain Link Rails

Our professional-grade rails are what separates us from many of our competitors. Our rails are of a higher grade than other options we see across the Columbus Ohio region. This is an important difference, because the weakest part of a chain link fence is found in the horizontal rails!

People sitting on the top of the fence, climbing the fence, leaning heavy objects against the fence, or branches falling onto the top of the fence - can all easily bend a low-quality chain link fence rail! Not ours. Our fences are built to last and a key reason our chain link fencing lasts so long and looks like new - is because of the higher quality chain link fencing materials we install for our residential and our commercial clients.

DIY Fence Estimate

If you'd like to get a rough idea on your own about how much fencing you will need, follow these easy steps:

  • If you happen to know the dimensions of the area you wish to enclose, simply add the length of each side together. Use a tape measure. Rough estimates are fine, there is no need to be too precise, this is just a rough estimate at this point.
  • Be sure to subtract the length of any structures (like a building or a storage shed that will serve as part of the barrier). This will give you a rough estimate as to how much fencing you will need.
  • An additional step to get greater accuracy for the amount of chain link fencing you will need, is to also subtract the length of any gates you will be using. The gates are often priced much differently than the fencing is. For this reason we usually recommend to property owners who are looking to develop their own fence estimate, to list the gates separately. A standard chain link walk gate is approx 4 feet wide and a standard chain link drive gate can easily be 10 feet wide or more.

Chain link fencing is unique in its ability to be utilized for such a wide array of applications. Listed below are some of the most popular applications of chain link fencing:

  • Chain Link Fencing for Athletic Areas
    Athletic areas and children's parks almost exclusively use chain link fencing.
  • Chain Link Fencing for Pool Areas
    Chain link fencing is very popular for protecting residential and commercial pool areas across the Columbus Ohio area. Adding the non-corrosive vinyl coating makes chain link fencing a great option for pool fencing in Columbus Ohio.
  • Chain Link Security Fencing
    Chain link fencing is the most popular type of security fencing in Columbus Ohio - due to a large number of security add-ons available for the top of the fence and the height that a chain link fence can be designed and built. If securing your property is your primary objection, chain link fencing may be your perfect solution.

Every local municipality in Columbus Ohio has a separate set of requirements when it comes to building permits, and that includes chain link fencing. Sometimes the specific height of the fence or placement of the fence or purpose of the fence can impact the need for a permit. There are also HOA considerations in some areas.

Fence placement is ultimately the responsibility of you, the customer. Moving a fence after it's already been installed can be costly, so it's never a bad idea to get a survey to be safe. In many cases, the property lines are clear and well-marked and installing your fence can be done without an official survey. However, some municipalities do require it, so be sure to check!

There are many small fence companies in Columbus Ohio that install chain link fencing. Very few of them specifically train their teams on the best installation techniques and practices for installing chain link fencing. Unfortunately, this means that your chain link is almost certainly not installed as securely as it could be - which, ultimately, can reduce the quality and lifespan of your fence.

Inferior installation techniques and using improper tools can also damage the chain link during installation which may have the unfortunate impact of voiding the manufacturer's warranty - because you chose an unqualified contractor not approved by the manufacturer.

Also be sure to choose a reliable fence company that has been around. Here are some of the most common pitfalls of using an unreliable, unlicensed, or uninsured chain link fencing contractor:

  1. The Chain Link Fence Warranty is Void
    If the company that installed your chain link isn't still in business down the road, the workmanship warranty on the fence and the gates is worthless. Additionally, some manufacturers won't warranty their fence material if it was damaged during installation or installed improperly - which is fairly common.

  2. The Fence Almost Certainly Won't Last As Long
    As a professional fencing contractor, our team of installers undergoes rigorous training and constant professional supervision. We are dedicated to improving our knowledge and skills of the best fencing materials and the best fence installation techniques for chain link fencing in order to maximize the strength and life of your fence. Companies that simply install fences as something they do "on the side" usually have no idea how much they actually don't know about chain link fencing ... and what is best for you and your property.

  3. Putting Your Property at Risk
    Installing chain link fences in the Columbus Ohio area is actually somewhat risky. Sudden, harsh weather during the installation of a fence can blow materials - damaging your business or customer's cars. We've seen concrete splatter up onto cars or drip down long stretches of walkways and driveways - as wet concrete or other materials are transported. The secondary damage to businesses or your customers' vehicles while installing fences by poorly trained labor is a very common thing.

    Additionally, anyone hurt on your property while they are working puts you at risk! If you hire an unqualified fencing contractor - you may be liable.

At first glance, hiring a "cheaper" fence company to install your chain link may appear to save you a few dollars, but in the long run it is almost certainly a price that you simply cannot afford to pay!
