Reliable, Affordable Galvanized Fencing Services
Galvanized steel has long been a popular fencing material due to its durability, versatility, and resistance to corrosion. Galvanized steel is a specific type applied with a zinc coating to ‘galvanize’ it. The coating is applied by immersing the steel in molten zinc, which forms a metallurgical bond. The galvanization process creates a high-quality finish that protects the steel from the elements, rust, corrosion, and water damage. This process can be used to make galvanized steel fence posts, panels, and chain link fences. At Fencing South Florida, we specialize in custom fencing solutions. We can provide the materials you need to install your fence yourself, or you can hire our fencing contractors for professional installation.

Benefits of Installing a Galvanized Metal Fence
Galvanized fencing is durable, attractive, and long-lasting, requiring little upkeep or attention. We recommend galvanized fencing to customers who want these benefits:
- Extended lifespan – Galvanized steel has an incredible lifespan. A galvanized steel fence can last up to 50 years in average weather conditions and over 20 years in areas with extreme rain or flooding.
- Resistance to rust and corrosion – The galvanization process creates a protective barrier that prevents moisture and oxygen from damaging the fencing. This reduces the risk of rust and corrosion.
- Cost-effective solution – Most treated steels are more expensive than galvanized steel. Galvanized fencing is faster and less expensive than other metal fencing types.
- Versatile fencing options – Choosing galvanized steel offers more versatile fencing options than other types of metal fencing. You can choose between galvanized steel fence posts, panels, and chain link fences.
- Sustainable fencing – Galvanization improves the lifespan and durability of a steel fence while placing minimal burden on the environment. Galvanized fencing is also easily repaired so that it can last even longer, and it is also recyclable.
- Reliable and secure fencing – Galvanized steel is a very reliable and secure material for fencing. It doesn’t risk breaking down or becoming less sturdy over time. It will remain secure and safe for decades.
Common Types of Galvanized Fencing
The style of galvanized metal fencing you choose will ultimately depend on the primary purpose of your fencing, your environment, your budget, and your personal preferences. The most common types of galvanized fencing are:
- Galvanized chain link fences – Galvanized chain link fences are like traditional chain link fences, but the steel is galvanized before or after the fencing is formed.
- Galvanized fence panels – Galvanized fence panels have an industrial appearance to them. Large pieces of galvanized steel are installed in a treated wood or metal frame.
- Galvanized screening – Galvanized screening looks like vertical and horizontal bars arranged, so there are very small gaps in between. This creates the appearance of a thick screen.
- Galvanized mesh – Galvanized mesh fencing looks like plastic or vinyl mesh fencing, but it is constructed from steel that has been galvanized.
- Vinyl-coated galvanized wire – Vinyl-coated galvanized wire can be used to construct chain link fencing, mesh fencing, chicken wire, and more. The vinyl can be almost any color, though the most common colors are green, black, brown, white, and
- Galvanized fence posts – Galvanized steel fence posts can be constructed and arranged in various ways. They can serve as support for wood, vinyl, or composite fencing. They can also be decorative and used to construct gates and fencing that serve as barriers or delimiting markers rather than high-security fencing. This type of fencing can be designed, molded, and constructed in almost any shape or size. The most popular mimic decorative wrought-iron fencing and gates.
How Long Do Galvanized Fences Last?
The lifespan of a galvanized fence depends on where it is installed, how much use it gets, the weather and temperature at the installation site, and its care and maintenance. In general, galvanized fences can last 50 years or more. If routinely exposed to high volumes of water, they may last around 20 years. Galvanized steel fence posts can last up to 70 years with little care or maintenance, while galvanized chain link fences typically last between 20-50 years, depending on the gauge of the steel used. Galvanized fencing in remote locations with little interaction with humans, vehicles, and animals will last longer than galvanized fencing in urban areas.
Care and Maintenance of Galvanized Fencing
Galvanized steel requires little care or maintenance, but some effort can be taken to extend its lifespan and maintain its beauty. Here are some tips for ensuring your fencing lasts as long as possible:
- Regularly remove hedges, bushes, weeds, and other obstacles that could affect the condition of the fencing.
- Check for signs of damage every few months. Look for missing parts, leaving posts, scratches, dents, cracks, and anything else that could affect the security or stability of the fence.
- Wash your fence every two to three years to remove dirt, salt, and other debris. Use a solution of white vinegar and water or borax and water.

All I can say is WOW! I knew it would be a great experience when the General Manager Frank Ward came personally to give me a quote because I wanted it done quickly. Within one day, he was at my house. After speaking with Frank, he went in his car and within 15 minutes, I had a quote. It was even a bit less than others but the main reason I chose Fencing South Florida was due to the professionalism I received from day one. AMAZING! Thank you to Frank and his entire team of professionals. They are all so nice and in my 20 years in Florida, this was the best service I received! Nice job!!
I love people who are serious about there work, this company made the most back breaking work look easy and before you know it 200 ft of fence went up and my yard was mine again..... Thanks for the huge discount and the great service.
I needed some security gates badly and did not have a lot of money to spend, this company wins the prize, problem solved with a few bucks to spare, I couldn’t be happier….Thanks, Dan, you the man.
Fencing South Florida did a very nice job. There were a few things that needed attention after install and they took care of what needed to be done. I would recommend this company.
My new fence is beautiful! We decided to go with white vinyl instead of wood and we are very pleased!
