Chain Link Fence Replacement Parts
Why You Should Replace Chain Link Fence Parts
Replacing parts of your chain link fencing will be significantly less expensive and easier than removing and replacing the entire system. So, the question becomes: replace or repair?
Chain link fencing from the mesh to the posts and fittings is manufactured to last; however, the metal it's made of may become exposed to the elements, bent, or damaged. While some parts can be fixed without a replacement, a longer-lasting solution is to replace the damaged parts. A few common issues with chain link fencing are damaged rails, mesh, and posts, faulty gates, and occasional rusting after years of raw metal exposure. Let's check out some common replacement parts and a possible way to repair them without replacement.
Replacement Parts for Chain Link Fencing
There are many parts, or fittings, related to the chain link fence, from the post and mesh to the various bands, post caps, and much more. Some of these parts support a lot of the weight of the fence and may become bent out of shape. Other times, fittings scratch each other or get worn down, exposing the raw metal they are made of. When exposed to the elements, these parts may rust; the only solution is to replace them.
Replacement Parts for Chain Link Gates
A chain link gate may have more parts to replace than the fence itself. Gate parts require movement and thus wear down faster than a stationary fence part. Perhaps the most replaced part of a chain link gate is its hinges and latches. These two parts are designed to move smoothly, but like any other part of the chain link fence system, they can be exposed to natural elements that cause them to rust and corrode.
