Installing New Fencing

Hello, my name is Barry and this is my new fencing blog. Until a couple of years ago, I didn't think twice about fencing. I truly believed that there were only a couple of types of fence and that they all more or less did the same job. But boy was I wrong. When my brother-in-law Stan came to visit me, he explained that he had recently retrained as a fencing contractor and that he would be willing to do some work on my yard. I helped him to install a new glass fence around the pool and a lovely wooden picket around the exterior of my home. I hope you enjoy my blog.

Why Chain Mesh Should Be Your First Choice For Fencing

Whether you are fencing a golf course and need several kilometres of material or are just enclosing your back yard, there is one material you should be looking at first: chain mesh. While there are many different types of fencing, and they all have benefits and negatives, chain mesh fencing really is the all-rounder when it comes to 99% of people's needs. While there are many different reasons, here are three that will prove beyond a doubt that you should try chain mesh fencing first. 

1. Easy To Customise 

Chain mesh is extremely easy to customise in almost every respect. If you only want waist-height fencing, you can buy it shorter or simply cut it yourself. If you want extremely high fencing, simply order a taller length of chain mesh. The posts that connect the fencing can come in all sizes as well, meaning there is nothing constraining you. Not only this, but it is also easy to paint and change the appearance of your chain mesh fencing, although black and its natural grey remain the most popular versions. 

2. Durability

Due to its mesh design, chain mesh fencing has less surface area, which means it is less susceptible to strong winds, heavy storms and any rocks or debris that might be flung its way. It also holds up extremely well under the tough Australian sun because it is often coated in a corrosion-resistant material (generally a type of PVC). This also means that if a section does start to deteriorate, it does not impact the whole fence and can be replaced fairly easily. Chain mesh fencing has a natural advantage because of its design, so you should utilise it for your more rugged fencing needs. You will often see it around warehouses, sporting fields and even airports for this reason.

3. Price

Perhaps the number one feature that makes it so popular is its relatively cheap price despite its aforementioned qualities. Often, you can find chain mesh fencing at far below the cost of solid materials like wood, cement or even other metal fencing. Obviously, the fact that fewer raw materials are used to make it helps its case here, but as proven, this does not mean it lacks in features. For those that don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars per square metre of fencing, chain mesh is your best and most valuable option.
