Modern Georgia chain link fences are made from galvanized steel and can last up to 20 years – which is longer than the average wooden fence. Galvanized steel is one of the strongest materials you can build a fence out of, and with its zinc coating, it is able to resist rust and hold its strength for many years. You can choose the gauge level of your chain link fence, which will adjust the strength your fence can handle.
