A stretch of my wire mesh fence (chain link) was recently damaged. An area about 1.2m in length needs repair. Many of the links in this area are now broken. The rest of the mesh is fine. My issue is how to repair this.
If I cut out the 1.2m damaged area off (fill gap with something) then will it be possible/harder to secure the two ends of the remaining mesh to something (a post?) as the ends I cut will now in effect be broken links?
Can I repair the broken links? I've read about fencing sleeves where the broken ends are stretched, covered by the fencing sleeves, and then crimped etc. But I can't find where to get fencing sleeves (I live in High Wycombe).
Can I get a small amount of chain link wire mesh (about 1.2m high, 2m length) to replace the damaged area (i.e. cut out the damaged area, and then integrate some new chain link wire mesh)?
I'd welcome any thoughts? Thanks. Steve.
