Ornamental Steel vs. Chain Link: Which Fence is Right for You?

Call 800-289-8057 | A fence can provide reliable protection against all threats. Although all bars have some benefits, not all fencing materials offer the same protection. Chain link and Ornamental Steel are two of the most common fencing types. Which option is best for you? Consider security, cost, location, and appearance when selecting the right fence for you. These are some other factors that can help you decide. Get a fence installed by trusted local pros.

​Property Value

A fence should improve the property’s aesthetic appeal and increase its resale potential. When choosing between ornamental steel or chain link fencing, the property value should be considered. A chain link is a cost-effective option in the short term, but it can lose its aesthetic appeal over time, lowering your property’s value. Most homeowners’ associations (HOAs) and communities have established regulations restricting the use of chain links within their areas. On the other hand, aluminum fencing is ornamental steel in many colors and styles. They are durable and can withstand water, so they will not lose their appeal, and aluminum fences can be long-lasting investments.


Unlike chain links, ornamental steel fences can be made in various styles and colors. You can also add endless accessories to enhance your home’s design. Chain link is limited in customization, and ornamental fences can be tailored to your needs. Decorative borders can be customized with elegant accessories like ball caps, tri-, quad finials, and butterfly scrolls.

Ongoing Maintenance

Another factor to consider when choosing these options is their maintenance requirements. When it comes to the maintenance of your fences, there is not much difference between ornamental steel/aluminum fencing and chain links. Chain link fences are susceptible to rusting and need to be maintained. Decorative borders, on the other hand, are made from highly durable materials like aluminum and are easy to maintain thanks to their powder-coated finish.
