There are a variety of fencing materials available for residential and commercial properties, and the options may be overwhelming. Each type of fencing material has its advantages and disadvantages. Wood and wrought iron have been the staple fence materials for a long time, but recently more innovative materials have grown in popularity. Aluminum, for instance, is very popular due to its price and durability. Aluminum fencing offers you the security and aesthetics you need at your home or business while remaining within your budget. Here are a few reasons why aluminum fencing might be perfect for you.
When shopping for a new fence, price is most likely the first thing you consider. One of the greatest benefits of aluminum fencing is that it is a relatively inexpensive material. Aluminum fencing is manufactured, not fabricated, meaning that it costs less to produce and install. Since aluminum is very low maintenance, you will save both in installation costs and maintenance costs in the future.
Aluminum is a lightweight metal that can withstand the elements. Unlike iron, aluminum will not rot, rust, or fade when exposed to moisture, sunlight, or pests. As mentioned, aluminum requires very little maintenance to keep it in good condition. You just need to clean your fences with a hose to get rid of any dust and spots.
Safety and Security
The most important job of a fence is to keep your property safe and secure. Some fence materials provide more protection than others. Wood fences are easy to remove or break and chain link fences can be cut through. However, aluminum fences are fixed and cannot be removed that easily. The high vertical bars of aluminum fences are hard to climb, and the spear-topped pickets can provide additional security. You can rest easy knowing your home is protected.
Aluminum fencing can accommodate different height specifications, building codes, and installed flat land and sloped surfaces. These fences can be shaped and styled in any way you need. You can install them in various colors, shapes, and designs. Aluminum fencing also prevents your pets and small children from escaping under or through the fence.
Unlike wrought iron fencing, aluminum does not need to be painted every few years. When manufactured, aluminum fencing is brushed with multiple protective coats, including a powder paint coating that will last without needing to be repainted. Once your aluminum fence is installed, you just need to hose it down every now and then to remove any dirt or debris.
