Chain link fencing is one of the quicker fencing materials available to install. The fencing itself is manufactured in rolls or panels meaning there is little assembly required by the installation contractor.
When the fencing comes in a roll it’s simply a matter of installing the fence posts, rolling out the fencing, and then finishing it off with the rails. When the fencing comes in panels it’s a very similar process. The contractor would need to install the fence posts and then hook up the panels which usually come with rails already attached.
All of this takes very little time compared to vinyl fencing or ornamental steel fencing which are more labor-intensive and have many smaller parts that need to be accounted for. The quick installation time of chain link fencing is one of its biggest draws for homeowners because the labor cost is lower than other types of fencing.
