Choosing A New Residential Fence

One of the first things I wanted to tackle when I bought my new home was the fence. It was old, leaning, and missing boards. It certainly was not up to the task of keeping the dogs in our back garden. I wanted a new fence which provided privacy, strength to keep the dogs contained, and was maintenance free. This blog is all about fences. I plan to write about the different types, how to maintain them, and how to choose the perfect fence for your situation. From steel to bamboo, privacy to animal containment, there is a lot to know about the different fences available to you.

Top 5 Benefits of Installing Chain-Mesh Fencing


There are many types of fencing available in Australia. Each type has a unique purpose, although the primary goal is to enclose and secure construction sites, backyards, government facilities, and other properties. Of all fences, most Australians prefer chain-mesh fencing due to its durability and economic advantages. It works perfectly for both residential and commercial units, and its materials are readily available. If you are looking for an ideal fence for your property, here are top reasons why you should consider chain-mesh fencing over the others.

1. Variety of designs

Chain-mesh fences come in several types. Some have a colour coating while others have the standard silver steel colour. Apart from the colours, you can choose the style or the thickness of the fencing material. If you have limited space, you can select a chain-mesh fence whose entrance is sliding. And if you have enough space in your home, you can use a swing gate. You can also choose an automatic or manual walkthrough gate suitable for one person.

2. Less maintenance

Unlike the other types of fences, chain-mesh fencing requires less maintenance effort. The galvanization protects the fence from rust, dirt and other debris. Once you install it, you will only sweep leaves or cobwebs from time to time but not regularly. Other than that, you will not do anything else to maintain it unless it needs repair.

3. Affordability

When compared to iron, vinyl and wood, chain mesh is affordable. It is the best option if you intend to cover a sizeable backyard or property which stretches for several acres. You can even install it on your own provided you have the materials. However, you should hire a professional fencing service to ensure that the fence functions properly for an extended period.

4. Durability  

Galvanized steel is one of the materials which make a chain-mesh fence. Naturally, steel is a highly durable material which can withstand wear and tear for many years. You can paint or coat the galvanized steel to increase its resistance to corrosion and weakening, which results after many years of exposure to the sun and rains.

5.  Temporary and permanent enclosure

Chain mesh fences are ideal for both temporary and permanent purposes. You can easily pull off the steel posts from the ground and take them to a different location. If you want a durable fence, chain wire is still a suitable option since the galvanized steel holds up for an extended period.

As you can see, chain-mesh fencing promises many benefits to the users. If you are looking for either temporary or permanent, chain-mesh would be a perfect solution.
