There are a number of things that you need to consider when you are building a chain link fence in vancouver bc.

The first thing you need to do is survey your property line to ensure you are installing the fence on your property.

Once you have the correct property line you are going to need to take accurate measurements. As your grandfather used to say make sure you measure twice.

Now choosing the right chain link fencing material is a bit more complicated. There is a bit of choice in chain link. Do you need the fence for a residential or commercial application. Do you want stainless steel, galvanized or black powder coated? Next you are going to need to consider the size of the mesh that you desire. A thicker mesh will make it easier to see through but not look as nice.  Some of the other uses of chain link fences are Perimeter security fence, baseball backstop, field fence and batting cage, tennis court fencing and soccer field fencing, dog kennels, dog runs, bicycle enclosure, gas meter enclosure, and transformer enclosure.

One of the main issues with chain link fencing is that people will have full access to see you in your yard.  This is a great thing if you want to see intruders, but not so good if you want privacy. In a recent renovation home we purchased, we had to convert a nice chain link into a wood fence due to the amount of traffic that started to come through the back alley.  This is a very important thing to consider when building the fence.  Is it going to stand the test of time.

There are ways to convert a chain link fence so tha you get more privacy however.  What you have to do is get what is called privacy panels.  Privacy panels come in shapes up to 6 feet in height.  So if your fence is shorter than that you are going to have a bit of an issue.  In that case what we would do is a build a wood fence over top of your chain link fence.
