Colored chain link fences have grown in popularity over the years. Many have chosen color chain link fence systems to accentuate siding, roofing, and trim colors on houses and businesses. Some choose a colored chain link fence system to blend into natural surroundings. Vinyl coated chain link fences are typically very smooth and soft to the touch compared with galvanized wire. Consider this advantage when fencing a backyard where children may have the tendency to handle the fence. When framework is coated in a matching color, all chain link fence fittings including bands, caps, tension bars, gates, hinges and latches are also usually color coated to match.
