chain link fence for construction site

We know there are a lot of details to handle at the beginning of any project. Temporary fencing is just one of them.

We also know that getting that jobsite fencing installed quickly and correctly is crucial to the timing and success of your construction project. We do our part to respond to every request in as timely and professional a manner as possible, whether you need full-perimeter chain link, a serviceable silt fence, flexible orange fencing to protect vegetation, or a combination of barriers to secure your area and direct construction traffic.

Please Help Us

At United Rent-A-Fence, we realize that you call us because of our expertise and our service. But, in order to make the job easier for both of us, we ask you to do the following:

  1. Every town, city, village or county has specific rules for temporary construction site fencing. Most specify 6-foot fencing, but a few will require an 8-foot height. We stock both; but we need to know which is right for your job. In Chicago, windscreen is necessary, but in most other locations, its use is an esthetic option. Do you want windscreen?   Do you need snow/orange fence to shield vegetation? Are there other requirements we should take into account? Knowing the answers to these specific questions will help us estimate the scope and cost of your job, and will allow us to schedule a more efficient installation.
  2. United Rent-A-Fence is required to obtain a valid DIGGER or J.U.L.I.E. number, even if you already possess one. Because it is a requirement that we cannot ignore, we require at least 48-hour lead time before scheduling any type of post-driven temporary fence installation. Knowing the location of existing underground services is a vital safety consideration, one that we will not ignore.
  3. We ask that you provide a clear walk path along the route where your chain link or silt fencing is to be located. If there is no clear pathway, we must charge an additional fee to clear a 4-foot pathway. In addition to the extra charge, such work can delay an installation.

As a professional temporary fencing company, we value your business and will do our best to give you exceptional service. We just ask that you help us out with a few of the basics. For answers to any other questions, please give us a call.

  1. Thanks for the helpful information. I am planning on installing a fence in my backyard here soon. I like the tip of making a clear walk path along the route where your fence is going to be located. I think it would be annoying for the workers if there was stuff in the way of their work. I will also make sure to have all the right permits and things needed to put in the fence. Thanks for the help!

  2. I am renting some fences for our company 5K that we are putting on at my work. The fences are supposed to guide runners at certain tricky spots in the course so that nobody gets confused about where to go. I’m glad that I read this so that I can follow these three steps in order to make the job easier. Thanks for sharing this.

  3. Great read for future fence buyers! Very important to know the rules and regulations of your city or neighborhood before you map out your build. Makes it a smoother process for both sides when the buyer has all the correct information to begin.

  4. You made a good point that every city has different rules when it comes to fencing. I would think that it’s important, not only to know them but to make sure your chain link fencing installation service knows them so that you can be on the same page. I am trying to find a fencing company for my house that I plan to build in a year or so.
