Residential

Allegheny Fence offers a large variety of chain link fencing products and installation. When shopping for your fencing needs, be sure that when you compare prices you are comparing the same quality of products. There are several gauges (thickness) of wire as well as different thickness of posts and framework. The higher the gauge number, the thinner the wire. We can discuss the type that will best meet your needs.

The three main types of wire (or fabric) are galvanized, aluminum coated (aluminized) and vinyl coated. The most common is a 2" mesh, meaning the "holes" in the wire are 2" squares. Other mesh sizes range from 1" to 2 3/8". All fence wire is available in different gauges. Following is our recommendations for residential fencing:

  • The vinyl coated wire comes in green, black, brown, and white.  This is a 9 gauge wire including the vinyl. Vinyl coated wire will not rust unless the vinyl coating is ripped or torn.
  • The aluminum coated wire comes in 9 or 10 gauge.  We commonly recommend 10 gauge for residential installations. This gauge is economical, yet strong enough to handle most residential needs. With this type of fencing the wire is dipped in the aluminum coating prior to being woven.  This procedure provides the least likelihood of rusting and a very smooth surface.  
  • Galvanized coated wire (9 gauge) is coated after the weaving process, sometimes creating sharp points or pockets that can be susceptible to rust. Pre-galvanized fabric is available but is galvanized to lower standards and not recommended.
Posts and framework also come in a variety of thickness as well as diameters. Posts and framework can be either galvanized or vinyl coated to match the color of your wire. We currently stock 3 different grades of galvanized posts and framework:
  • Residential Grade - pipe wall thickness of .065"
  • Heavy residential/Light Commercial Grade - SS20 weight class
  • Industrial Grade - SS40 and Schedule 40 weight class
The pipe wall thickness of the 20 and 40 weight varies by diameter and is strong enough for your heavier projects. Again, we can help you select the products that are right for your project.
