Great for large, rural properties where security, not aesthetics, are the concern.
Longevity vs. cost is another reason why some homeowners just prefer to go with a chain link. You can expect your chain link fence to last 15 to 20 years.
While this isn’t quite the same lifelong value offered by an iron fence, it is more durable than a wooden one. For some, perhaps even for you, 15 to 20 years easily represents the amount of time many homeowners would expect to be on any given piece of property.
