The first thing you can do to ensure your fence is corrosion resistant and professionally installed is have an experienced fencing company to manage the installation.
Galvanized and Vinyl Coated
A galvanized and vinyl coated chain link fencing comes ready prepared to fight rust and weather damage. Vinyl coating gives an extra, solid layer of protection to the fence and is preferable. You may also choose from a variety of colors which may match your garden planning and color scheming. Rust will soon appear if your fence is not galvanized or vinyl coated.
It is important to remove any rust you find on your fence. Corrosion can result in the breakdown of entire structures, so it is best to act when you see it instead of waiting until the problem is out of control.
If you do encounter some rust while you are cleaning your fence, here is how you can get rid of it:
- If it is a minor build up, you can use steel wool or sandpaper to remove it.
- If it is a significant build up, you can use chemicals to remove the rust. Consult with a professional fencing contractor for repair and maintenance services.
