    It's time to get rid of the old wooden fence in the backyard. Has anyone had a chain link fence installed? if so who did you use? Happy with work etc...

    Eastern was reasonable cost wise and very hassle free for us. You just come home from work one day and you have a fence. Very little hassle.

    That does seem steep. Just be careful about going cheap. A cheap fence will be your worst nightmare to maintain because it will blow down every time there is a storm.
