Combining the price and features of chain link fences, it can be known that chain link fences have advantages in terms of affordability and security, it can block animals and intruders outside. However, due to the limited fence height in residential use, the safety effect is average. In addition, the performance is also poor in terms of privacy protection.

Vinyl fencing requires low maintenance and is easy to clean, it won’t splinter or rot. But it performs weakly in weather resistance, extreme weather can damage the material. Algae, mold, and mildew can cause staining. Besides, it is not a natural material.

Wood is the most commonly used fence material, and it has the best visual effect. But it is inevitably greatly affected by the weather, and requires high maintenance, requiring regular painting, and is difficult to repair.

The metal fence contains wrought iron, aluminum, steel, and other materials. Durability is their common advantage, but expensive and easy to rust are common disadvantages.
