What maintenance is required?
Once a chain-link fence was installed no maintenance is required whatsoever. The only thing is that foliage and suchlike can attach and grow up the chain-link. This is not a problem unless large amounts of foliage attaches itself, as this will cause a lot of strain on the fencing and could lead to collapse later down the line. Although chain-link is particularly strong, it truly is recommended that any foliage be encouraged not to grow the fence up.

Chain-Link fencing has a look that is clean and subtle, if installed in the right environment. It’s not recommended for use in recreational or children’s play areas because, for example, repeated kicking of a ball into the fence will cause the chain-link to weaken and start to sag over time. If this were to happen the fencing may be adjusted by tightening strainer wires to restore the strength of the fence.
