Chain-link Fences Can Keep Pets Safe
Spring is here. After a long time cooped up indoors, most dogs are probably bursting to get outside. If a pet-parent doesn’t have time for endless walks, a fence can go a long way towards keeping a pupper safe. As a team that specializes in fence installation and repair, QS Fencing offers chain-link installation in Vancouver for those who want to pet-proof their properties.
Residential Pet Fencing In Vancouver
Installing a chain-link fence means taking a few extra precautions while installing it. For example, residential chain-link should be “knuckled” at the top and bottom so pets are not exposed to sharp edges. A green vinyl coating will allow the fence to blend in seamlessly into the hedges and other landscape features, while a bottom line wire can be run along the ground, strained tight to prevent dogs from pushing underneath.
A chain-link fence isn’t just good for keeping pets in, but also unwanted animals out. Depending on the location, deer, foxes, or even coyotes might pose a problem—to a homeowner’s garden and possibly even their pets. Chain-link can be installed at a variety of heights that will best suit their needs.
Chain-link fencing is made from galvanized or coated steel wire. The wires are woven into a zig-zag pattern so that each side hooks together, forming its iconic diamond pattern. But this is also the basis of its strength and durability, giving it flexibility, which means it can take far more punishment than wood or other materials, and still bounce right back.
On top of this, chain-link is relatively low cost and easy to install. Its galvanized coating makes it rust resistant, and an optional vinyl coating can further improve its longevity, requiring far less maintenance than other options.
Another advantage is that due to the open weave, chain-link fences are more or less transparent, and do not obscure sunlight from either side of the fence. However, if more privacy is desired and a semi-opaque look needed, optional slats can be installed into the mesh.
A good chain-link fence will help ensure that your pets are kept safe, and won’t accidentally escape into unexpected adventures on their own. Ask a Vancouver fence installer today what type of fence is right for your house.
