Frequently asked questions

How long does a black chain-link fence last?

A black chain-link fence lasts 15 to 20+ years on average. The vinyl coating makes the galvanized wire more rust and corrosion-resistant. Thicker 6- to 9-gauge wire lasts the longest. Wet, humid, and salty coastal areas decrease the lifespan of chain-link fences.

How long does it take to install a chain fence?

Installing a chain-link fence takes 2 to 5 days on average. Setting the posts in-ground with cement takes one day. Installers let the cement cure for 1 to 4 days, depending on the cement type. Most contractors install 80 to 150 feet of fencing a day.

Does a black chain-link fence fade?

Black vinyl chain-link fencing has a 10- to 15-year manufacturer warranty against fading, chipping, and peeling. Many homeowners renew their chain-link fence by painting it black.

How can I get a cheap black chain-link fence?
