Cover up an Existing Chain Link Fence

While chain link fence is an inexpensive type of fencing and a good method of penning in dogs, it doesn’t provide an appeal on yards and homes. It’s unattractive and doesn’t give you much privacy either. Removing it can be quite a daunting task because the posts are buried deeply. And with large concrete roots that hold it tightly in place, it is comparable to a very sturdy tree. Even with a tractor, the metal posts are filled with concrete and are very hard to cut, making the job more difficult. If you do manage to remove the posts, the chain link is bulky and difficult to dispose of.

With all of the cons of a chain link fence, covering it up is the best solution. In fact, it is quite common among companies and homeowners to do so. Here are ways you can do to make your existing chain link fence look more appealing and at the same time provide you more privacy.


Use Privacy Screens


With a chain link fence, you would seem to feel exposed to passersby and your neighbors. Privacy screens are the best solution for this concern, adding privacy and value to your property. Privacy screens come in many types, style, and design. They can be made of different materials with various designs. You can even customize your own designs.

These screens can give your fence full coverage and have the design you desire. They are also great for businesses, as they can be used as marketing instruments. While these screens provide you privacy, you can use them to advertise your business or your products. Whatever material you’ll use, you can have the screen printed with whatever you want. You may even want to add a marketing message or contact information, which passersby can see.


Use Panels and Slats

Panels and slats are also popular options used to cover a chain link fence. You can have them installed horizontally, diagonally or vertically, to your liking. They can also add privacy effectively as well as enhance the look of your chain link fence. Panels and slats can be made of wood, aluminium, PVC, vinyl, composites, or other materials. Much like privacy fence screens, you can customize panels and slats with the design, style, and color you want.


Key Points

Chain link fence screens are easy to install outdoor accessories that offer you privacy and at the same time improve the look of your fence and your overall property. They also cost less than taking down the chain link fence and replacing it with another type of fence. Fence screens also filter environmental elements such as wind and rain. On top of all these, they are available in stylish designs that are also customizable.
