How are chain link fences installed?

If you select a qualified and experienced fencing contractor like FloriFence, we will provide an on-site consultation to understand what your fencing needs are and then give you an estimate to make sure the job is done right so you don’t have to worry about taking care of the project itself. Many customers contact us to order a chain link fence on their property because they need an affordable fencing option that will secure their yard or the land surrounding their business. Here is how we approach chain link fence installation:

  1. Plan the fence: We need to determine the layout of the fence, including the perimeter, gate placement, and any obstructions. We will also work with local utility companies to locate any underground utility lines that may be present.
  2. Install posts: We will dig holes for the fence posts, ensuring they are deep enough to support the height of the fence. We will insert the posts and secure them with concrete. We will allow the concrete to cure for at least 24 hours.
  3. Install tension wire: We will attach tension wire to the end posts and stretch it tight using a come-along.
  4. Install top rail: We will attach the top rail to the end posts using fittings and secure it to the line posts using tension bands.
  5. Install chain link fabric: We will unroll the chain link fabric along the fence line and secure it to the top rail using ties. We will stretch the fabric along the fence line and secure it to the tension wire using ties.
  6. Install gate: We will attach the gate frame to the gate post using gate hinges and install the gate latch.
  7. Finish the fence: We will trim any excess chain link fabric, top rail, or tension wire using a wire cutter. We will install any additional fittings or accessories as necessary.

Once your fence is installed, be sure to inspect the fence periodically for damage and contact us to make repairs as necessary.

Note that these are general steps, and the specifics may vary depending on the type and size of the fence being installed. At FloriFence, we are also knowledgeable about local building codes and regulations and will confirm that this project meets those requirements before starting.
