Chain Link Fences

Residential and Commercial

Chain link fence is a type of woven fence usually made from galvanized or steel wire. The wires run vertically and are bent into a zig-zag pattern so that each "zig" hooks with the wire immediately on one side and each "zag" with the wire immediately on the other. This forms the characteristic diamond pattern seen in this type of fence.

Generations of homeowners and business owners in the Springfield Missouri region have protected their property with chain link fences. It is the perfect solution for a number of situations.

Let's explore whether chain link fencing is right for your project.

Galvanized Chain Link Fencing

Traditional / Galvanized Chain Link Fencing

Ozark Fence galvanized chain link fences are unique and have their own distinct advantages. We invite you to compare for yourself what makes our galvanized chain link fences a cut above the rest.

A major advantage of the galvanized chain link fencing we install compared to that of most other local suppliers and installers is that our fencing materials are domestically manufactured in the United States and up to three times as strong as comparable imported wire mesh chain link. Our galvanized chain link products consist of cold-formed steel, a 90% zinc interior coating, hot dipped uniform zinc galvanized after fabrication, a conversion coating and finally a clear organic coating. This makes these products much stronger, much more rust resistant and all around far superior to that of other widely used wire mesh products imported from other countries.

Slatted Chain Link Fencing

Privacy Slat Chain Link Fencing

The slats are simply inserted into link material to provide additional privacy and coverage for homeowners. A fence made with these slats includes a higher price for the slats,but it will also nearly double the labor and the specs of the fence. This is due to the need to withstand the extra wind loads that the slats will cause.

In addition, chain link fences with slats offer a more visually appealing style for many people. PVC slats, which come in different shades and finishes, are an attractive choice that is available in a wider range of colors and styles.

Pricing on all fencing materials can fluctuate, but generally speaking, chain link fencing is usually among the lowest priced fencing options.

Typically we wait 2-3 days after the posts are set before installing the fence, this is to allow the concrete to cure to the point that it is ready to hold the fence. If the nighttime temperatures climb about 60 that time frame can decrease, if they fall below 30 degrees, then we typically give the concrete a bit longer to cure.

Our posts are set two feet, deep enough to get below the frost line found in the Springfield, Missouri area.

Our posts are set with Sakrete brand concrete. This is important for two reasons:

  1. Sakrete costs a bit more than mixing concrete ingredients by hand, but it results in a consistent blend of portland cement, sand and gravel. By using Sakrete we are using a product that is tested for an average of 4000 psi. Some fence companies will buy ingredients individually to cut costs.

  2. Sakrete is backed by an actual concrete company. Fencing contractors that cut costs by mixing ingredients individually have inconsistent mixes from post to post and have no recourse if the concrete mixture fails.

The property owner is required by many area city municipalities to apply for a building permit with the planning or zoning department prior to construction. The counties do not typically require a permit; however, fences must still conform to all height and set back requirements.
