Why You Need to Install a Privacy Chain Link Fence
A privacy chain link fence is a popular option for people looking for a fence for their property. If you want to modify your existing chain link fence and add privacy slats for privacy, increased security, or change of appearance, it is possible to do so. However, for guaranteed improvements to your current fence, it is best to install a pre-manufactured privacy chain link fence. The benefits of a privacy fence can save you a lot of money long term:
- Adding privacy slats to your existing fence may seem like a quick-fix that will get the job done in the present, but inserting the slats leads to an added wind load on the framework, leading to the possibility of it bowing or even blowing down completely. Because the original chain link fence is not built to take on the extra load that the privacy slats add, anything you save in the present will lead to future expenses when you will be required to fix a damaged fence. This is extremely important to keep in mind for High Desert residents, where strong winds are common.
- Although they are a great way to add privacy to your existing fence, privacy slats inserts for your existing chain link fence won’t guarantee the extent of privacy you may be looking for. On the other hand, if you install a privacy fence, you’ll enjoy 98% privacy due to the intricate mesh structure.
- A pre-manufactured privacy chain link fence is built using a thicker gauge wire, a sturdier top rail and stronger posts. All of these benefits of a privacy fence mean your money will be better spent on a longer-lasting structure instead of on a quick solution that will likely need replacement in the near future.
Benefits of a Privacy Link Fencing
The privacy this type of fencing provides a commercial or residential space is the most obvious benefit. Among homeowners, the choice to install a privacy fence is especially valuable for people with small children or pets. If you live in a busy neighborhood, this type of fence will guarantee privacy. It can also be used to fence off a swimming pool in your backyard.
Privacy chain link fences tend to last longer when compared to a wooden fence. Another benefit of a privacy fence is that it requires no maintenance and tends to be very long lasting, making it a great investment for people on a budget as well.
The process needed to install a privacy fence is relatively quick and simple. Once you have received an estimate from your fence company and the contract has been signed, you will need to schedule a start date. Soon after starting, your brand new privacy chain-link fence will be up in no time.
