Chain Link Basics

Chain link fences are basically woven metal fencing made with wires bent into a zigzag pattern to form a diamond-like pattern on the fence. If you've never seen chain link fencing being made, watch this video from How Stuff Works. It is really cool.

Often-times these fences are recognized from their common placement behind a baseball diamond or around buildings for security. Really, you'd have to be living under a rock not to bump into one by now.

Chain link fencing works well for industrial areas or for businesses, as well as for home use. A tall fence is difficult to climb and can be a great security measure. These fences are also easy to take care of. Galvanized steel, which is what is often used to create these fences, can go decades before needing repairs and there is no maintenance required once the fence is installed.

A fence has a number of purposes. Not only is it used for privacy, it could also prevent wild animals from invading your yard, as well as keep your pets and children within your property. However, are you also aware that having a fence on your property in Denver could also increase the value of your home? Here's why!

Denver Fence Pricing

When you’re a home or business owner, there are plenty of expenses you account for when you’re budgeting maintenance costs to keep your property looking good and working well. One thing people often forget to keep in mind is the cost for maintenance, replacement or even the building of a fence. In Colorado, the weather can cause damage to fences. Whether it’s from high winds, wet winters, or extremely dry summers, the cost to fix a fence or get a new one can feel overwhelming if you didn’t plan for it. Luckily, there are affordable Denver fence options for you to lower costs but get the work done.

Colorado has been no stranger to natural disasters in the last few years. The recent high winds took their toll on Colorado Springs homes when they knocked down hundreds of fences across the city. If you've been affected by the high winds, call a dependable Colorado Springs fencing company.

Like we said on our recent interview with Fox News, we won't raise prices on you just because of this disaster. 

“I don’t raise prices when there’s a disaster like this, I just don’t believe in that,” said Blickenstaff. “I’m not making any more money per job than I would be normally. There’s just a lot more of it.”

Read the full interview here.

Investing in a new fence can be a lot of time and money, so it makes sense to want to keep your fence in the best condition possible once you’ve got it installed on your property. Unfortunately for any fence, no matter the material, without regular maintenance a fence can need replacing sooner than expected.

This is especially true for a cedar fence. Dry rot is one of the greatest reasons a cedar fence needs replacing. Especially in Colorado where there’s a mix of wet weather like rain and snow, it’s important to keep in mind ways for preventing rot on cedar fences. With the right prevention and repairs, you’ll be able to keep your fence in tip top shape for a longer period of time!

Denver Chain Link Fence

Whether you’re trying to enclose your backyard, a playing field, or an industrial area or business, chain link fencing tends to be a great enclosure choice. A Denver chain link fence is versatile and is affordable for both residential and commercial customers.

This type of fence is durable against weather, easy to maintain, and can be customized to fit whatever property you’re using it for. Maybe you want the fence for security, or maybe you need it to keep pets and kids in, but a chain link fence can be used for convenience and safety.

Colorado weather makes it easy to spend time outside. Whether you’re sunbathing during the summer or building a snowman in the winter, getting out of the house is a great way to spend time with your family or pets, or even get away from the family and pets and be alone. A Colorado Springs privacy fence allows people and pets to get out of the house, but still keeps the yard and its contents contained and free from roaming eyes. It can be fun to socialize with neighbors, but sometimes it’s nice to have time without having to socialize. Plus, a Colorado Springs privacy fence keeps people who you don’t want from coming in or seeing your property, too.

Denver Fence Regulations

When it comes to building a fence, Denver has strict regulations. Whether you’re using a residential fence company or a commercial fence company, you have to keep Denver’s fence regulations in mind before planning and starting the construction of a fence on your property.

The requirements necessary to begin building are dependent on many factors such as the type of property it will be on, the location, the height of the fence, and even the construction materials.

Going through the motions to apply and be approved for fence construction can be a pain in the neck, however building a fence that violates the city’s regulations, or building the fence without a permit, will mean tearing down the fence, which is a big waste of time and money. Here are some Denver fence regulations to keep in mind while planning your next fence project.

Home care can be a tricky game if you know the house isn’t your forever home. On the one hand, you want to fix everything you don’t like so you can enjoy where you’re living while you’re there, but on the other hand, investing time and money in a home that you’ll be selling soon sometimes doesn’t feel like it is worth the extra effort.

One area that can add value to your Colorado Springs home with less effort on your end in terms of the actual labor is by adding a fence to your house.

A fence will provide security to the home and can complement your yard while defining property lines. Although there are some fences that are cheaper and easier to install, sometimes it pays off to hire a Colorado Springs wrought iron fence installer, or someone for either a vinyl or picket fence.
