Benefits of Choosing a Chain Link Fence

Here at Bullfrog Fence, our clients often ask us for recommendation on the best type of fence for their home or business. Our answer will generally depend on their needs, preference, budget, and environment. One of our highly recommended kinds is the chain link fence because of being the best of both worlds: it can match one’s budget without sacrificing quality.

Below are some of the benefits of choosing a chain link fence.


Chain link fences are great for protecting your home from strong winds, rain, and snow. Because of its galvanized steel and zinc coating, it can withstand tough conditions that other kinds of fence cannot bear. Many homeowners also boost the protection by applying another batch of coating.

Generally, we tell our customers that if their area is always vulnerable to extreme weather or sunlight, they should definitely consider this material.

Affordable and Easy to Install

Chain link fencing is a popular choice among business owners because of its incredibly low cost and minimal installation requirements. People who need to cover a huge land mass tend to use this because it can deliver on both the budget and durability aspect. You can save up to a third of the price that you have to pay for vinyl, wood, or PVC fence.

Low Maintenance

Another great thing about chain link fencing is that after installation, it is ready to protect your home or business for years to come. Unlike in wood, you don’t have to worry about regular maintenance to prevent rot, decay, or termites. The most that you need is washing with soap and water once in a while to keep it looking good.

When it comes to repair, you can do away with cutting out the damaged parts of the fence and replacing them with the same material. This can save you a lot of money considering that other kinds of fence when vandalized or broken would need a total replacement.

Tips in Choosing the Right Garden Fence

If your yard is a blank canvass, then landscaping would be painting to the homeowner just like painting to an artist. If you ask any person with a picturesque garden, the process can be quite daunting. Still, the trick is not only to be creative and practical, but also to hire the right professionals for the job.

Here at Bullfrog Fence, we have been helping homeowners with their landscaping by providing quality fencing building, fence repair, fence staining and fence restoration. Our fences can be the frame to your painting-like a garden. To help get you started, below are tips on finding the right fence for your home.

Consider your purpose, and then your preference

Are you aiming for a more aesthetically pleasing fence or more of a general protection for your home? Your location can play a huge factor in dictating its purpose. Since Texas is vulnerable to extreme weather conditions, we always advise our customers to consider durability first. The level of security and privacy you need will also determine the height, style, and material of your fence. You also need to check for potentially harmful wild animals that can damage plants, crops and flowers.

It is important that before selecting a beautiful material and design, you need to make sure that all your needs will be considered. After all, a fence is originally meant to protect an area. In this case, your beautiful fence should still be able to protect your garden.

Be prepared for the weather changes

Many homeowners who need to block strong wind resort to privacy fences, but if you want to bring more light in, then you can ask your fence builder on semi-privacy fences or wooden, wrought iron, or vinyl fences with patterns or holes.

Consider maintenance cost and requirements

Each kind of fencing material requires a different kind of maintenance. For instance, wood is known for the most maintenance because it needs regular staining or painting, while you also have to watch out for termites, decay, cracks, and rot. Metal comes in second because of the risk of getting scratches, dents, and rust. Vinyl and chain link fences are the easiest kinds to maintain.

How Do You Prepare for a Fence Installation?

Here at Bullfrog Fence, we are always asked a variety of questions in the Dallas Fort Worth market about fencing, with this being said here is a common one i.e. How Do You Prepare for a Fence Installation?

Since each and every fence preparation process can vary depending on what material that may be used. Today we put together two different examples too talk about.

First example, if you are planning to use let say metal for the new fence. Then you need to make sure to apply a primer and a general rust resistant coating or topcoat to increase the metal durability and longevity.

Second example, if you are planning to use let say wood for the new fence. Then you need to make sure that it is well protected from all the outdoor elements and conditions. This protection traditionally comes in from of a stain or a coating i.e. color or no color to ensure the wood preservation.

Tip: Paint is not recommended in this case because it does not seal and protect the wood, it just cover. Thus allows weather conditions and the elements to affect the fence.

Last thing on the wood, even though it is generally more expensive then other fence types. You should always consider on having pressure treated lumber or wood for your fence.

Tip: Cedar as a whole, when it is pressure treated prevents general rotten and decay coniferous species from consuming the fence & it helps to preserve your fence and general appearance.
