Chain Link & Aluminum Fence Facts

Chain link fences are preferred in suitable projects for three important benefits: they are very strong, offer superior durability and are more affordable compared to other common fencing options. Aluminum fencing enhances your outdoor space, adds curb appeal and provides enhanced safety, especially for pool areas. An aluminum fence offers improved strength, durability and beauty over other fencing solutions.

Let’s take a look at the different advantages each type provides and see which one is right for you!

We commonly install chain link fencing up to 12′ in height in permitted areas, typically for commercial properties.

Had used them to install the Jeridth Aluminum fence for our backyard. The installers arrived around 11AM on the scheduled day. Had discussed and walked around the property to understand our needs. Did a very decent job of providing their expert opinion on the property line alignment for the fencing and completed the job the same day around 5:30PM. Our experience with them on the installation has been awesome and the best part I like is the after sales support / responsiveness from the office...:) They definitely deserve 5 star review.- Raj

Montco fence did out backyard fence and they were great to work with from start to finish. Their installers were delightful, polite, explained everything they were going to do and completed the job in two days. I would highly recommend Montco if you are thinking about a fence. We have also ordered a shed from Montco, we cannot wait until that is done so our backyard is complete! Thank you to everyone at Montco Fence for making this a pleasant experience!

I can't say enough about the 2 crews we had for our fence installation. The first crew dug (by hand) the post holes, set the posts and cemented them in. The dirt was raked smooth or it that wasn't possible they moved it to a different location and raked it smooth. I figured the second crew (who built the fence on site 2 days later ) couldn't be better, but they were equally as good and exceptional in discussing how the fence would look when completed and did we approve of their installation plans. Everything was cleaned up before they left and the fence looks great. I recommend this company very highly.
