Traditional Galvanized Chain Link Fence

This is the “standard” for a Florida commercial fence. Depending on the terrain and characteristics of your unique location, this is typically the least costly of all fence types. Chain link fences are rust-resistant and require very little maintenance. Because of all of these qualities, this traditional chain link fencing option is perfect for many residential and business applications in Florida and the surrounding area.

 

PVC Coated Chain Link Fence

If you prefer a bit of an upgrade from the galvanized steel wire, you can purchase a Florida chain link fence coated with black, green, or brown vinyl. This look may better coordinate with your property’s landscape, and the vinyl will keep the fence looking new for a longer period of time. PVC is a vinyl coating similar to plastic or rubberized coating on your chain link fencing that produces a smooth appearance and feel while also protecting the fence from typical rust and weather damage. Black is the most readily available color, but please contact one of our specialists for the most up-to-date information on the availability of other colors.

Slatted Chain Link Fences

Slatted chain link fences offer another more visually appealing style for many people. These slats are made from robust materials like PVC that come in various colors and finishes, making them one of the more versatile style options.

These fences simply involve adding slat inserts into the link material, offering additional coverage and privacy for Florida homeowners. This will increase the price, not just for the cost of the slats, but also for the labor and the specs of the fence. The specs need to be adjusted due to the need to withstand the extra wind loads that the slats will cause.
