5. How long will it take for chain link fencing to be installed on a Boulder, CO property?

6. Do chain link fences require a lot of maintenance?
One of the main advantages of having an aluminum or metal fence erected is that it is basically maintenance free due to its protective coating. This will save property owners time and money in the long run. Unlike wood fences there is usually no need for regular painting or staining. If the chain link fence is colored, Snowy Peak Fencing will discuss any required maintenance.

7. Does gauge matter and what is it?
The gauge refers to the wire’s diameter, and it does matter. The gauge number will let you know the amount of steel, and this does affect quality. Higher gauges mean less steel, and this could mean that your fencing won’t be strong enough to withstand snow, wind and even rain. Snowy Peak Fencing recommends using 11 ½ gauge wire or lower for residential metal fences. If the structure is being erected on a commercial property, it should be 9 gauge or less for adequate strength and protection.
8. What comprises a chain link fence?
There are typically four parts to a chain link fence, and each one is important. The material refers to the type of material used to construct the chain link, while the framework consists of the posts. Fittings and a gate are the other two parts, and if each one does not compliment the other the fence could start to sag and fall apart.
9. Are all chain link fences designed to look and function the same?
