Having a new fence built

We are demolishing our older house and building a new modern house. Our old fence won't look that good with a modern house, so we are searching for a sleek, modern fence to complement the new house. It's quite fun to shop for the new house and see how the different fence styles might look with the new house. This blog has some inspiration for other home owners looking to get a new fence installed. We have a range of materials, styles and fencing techniques on display on this blog. I hope you will find it useful when looking for a new fence.

Ways to Customise Your Chain Link Fence


If you're looking for a fencing option, whether for your home or business, consider chain link fencing. You'll be able to customise it in various ways to meet your needs. Look some of the possibilities, highlighted below.

1. Fence Height

The form and structure of a chain-link fence are open to variation. You can set up extremely high dividers if you want to encircle a business or a tennis court, for example. Alternatively, you can construct a standard height fence for the front of a home property if you're keener on forming a barrier to guard children and pets.

The meshing comes in different widths, and the structure uses posts and poles to hold everything together. Thus it's relatively straightforward to purchase the right width mesh and height poles and so on—your fencing contractors can advise on this. Other types of more bulky fences, such as slat or tubular-metal, brick or cement, are not so versatile and adaptable.

2. Wire Thickness and Top Design

Not only does the chain wire sheet breadth vary, but also the diameter of the wire that forms the diamond shapes. For greater security, you can install thicker gauge chain wire, which is tougher to cut through. The top end of the fence can finish in different ways, depending on its purpose. For instance, it can finish with spiky metal ends that hinder climbing or be rounded and attached to a metal pipe that forms a top rail. For ultra-security, you could cover the top of the barrier with barbed wire.

3. Colour Choices

You can also alter the look of your fence with your colour selection. The wire can be standard silver, typically galvanised with an anti-corrosive layer of zinc, but it also comes wrapped in green or black PVC. While green merges with foliage and gives a rustic effect—perfect if you don't want to ruin a natural bush landscape—black mesh provides a smart appearance. If you're looking for front fencing for your home, black or silver make excellent choices as they harmonise with diverse colours. Whether your home is red brick or white weatherboard, these relatively neutral fence colours will look complementary.  

Overall, chain mesh fencing is highly adaptable because it suits both business and home environments. You can install varied heights, as well as different wire thickness and style. Plus you'll have a choice of colours to harmonise the barrier with its environment. Contact chain mesh fencing companies to learn more.
