Hire a Pro Advice: Build a Chain Link Fence

Learn where to find a fence contractor to build a chain link fence.

By Gene and Katie Hamilton

You'll find companies who build chain link fences listed under "Fence" in the Yellow Pages. Use their advertisements to narrow the selection to those who specialize in residential as opposed to commercial fences. Online use a search engine like Bing, Google or Yahoo by typing "chain link fence in (your city)" in the search box.

When you talk with a fence builder get their input on the style and height of fence for your property. They'll know the local building code requirements and may suggest a type of fence you haven't considered. Ask for a list of referrals so you can look at chain link fences they've installed. By looking at these earlier installations, you'll see how the fence has weathered and withstood time.
