How to Fix a Chain Link Fence

 In Blog

Chain Link fences are one of the most popular fencing choices, and in part this is because of its sturdiness and its durability. But as we all know the unexpected can happen anytime, leaving our fence bent or broken. Incidents like a tree branch falling over, or even a car could easily cause damage to it. If your chain link fence has experienced something similar, here are some tips on how to repair your fence.

First of all you will need:

wire cutters








Using a come-a-long, attach the two hooks to the good sections of the fence and pull the two sides of the chain link fence close enough together to repair.

Cut any damaged wire away with the wire cutters. Secure the loose ends by twisting them around a couple of times at the link.

Finish the end of the wire by twisting it a couple of times around the original wire and then cut it close. Trim the beginning of the repair wire the same way.

Release the come-a-long and review your results. Hopefully, it will pass your inspection.
