Chain-link and aluminum are two very popular materials Carter Fence uses to build and install fences today. Our design team can provide an on-site inspection and free estimate for new fences and also for McLean, VA, metal fence repairs for a poolside fence the lawn service ran down with a riding mower to the front lawn property fence after the last storm dropped a tree on top of it.
Chain-link fences are still the most popular and cost-effective options for security needs and restricting access to backyards. The galvanized steel forms a tough, final product that is not affected by ultraviolet light and resists weather better than anything else. The design flexes and protects against many forms of physical damage and even cutting it does not cause permanent damage.
The only way to knock one down is to hit the corner and line posts hard enough to either break them off or bend them over until they are ready to snap. These posts provide the support we need to stretch the chain-link material taut. For both minor and major damage to the steel strands, we repair this type of McLean, VA metal fence by carefully releasing the tension that holds it in place and removes the damaged pieces.
We quickly weave new strands into the damaged sections and then tighten the fence back to its usual appearance with no sign there was a problem. For broken or bent posts, we have to dig them and the concrete out to replace both.
More Northern Virginia homeowners are picking aluminum now instead of wood for fences. It is more weather resistant than even pressure-treated wood, and it has a finished appearance which is very eye-catching to homeowners who wish to add to their home’s curb appeal.
This resilient material can be shaped and cut to meet almost any customer need. With the right paint and primer, the final product can look like a traditional, white picket fence or perfectly resemble a black or silver, wrought-iron property fence. Aluminum costs less than wrought-iron and even wood depending on the type of fence. Since aluminum also does not rust like iron, it requires less repair and maintenance.
The few repairs to a McLean, VA metal fence usually do not require much labor. Carter Fence technicians can easily straighten bends and other minor damage to slats and rails. Scratches can be buffed out and repainted with no loss of appearance if they are shallow. If the posts are bent, we dig out and replace them just like the galvanized chain-link posts. We use paint thinner or a sandblaster to remove spray paint in cases of vandalism.
For 30 years and more, we have built awnings and decks and installed fences for businesses and homes all over Northern Virginia.
