The Benefits of Aluminum for Residential Fencing
Choose aluminum for your residential security fence.

Fences are a great addition to almost any property, increasing safety and security for the whole family and improving the privacy of your outdoor spaces. When it comes time to choose a fence, there are so many options that it can be a little intimidating. One of the most significant choices you’re going to have to make is in fencing materials. There are many options out there, and when it comes to metal fencing, the many benefits of aluminum should land it high on your list of possibilities.


Cost is often a huge deciding factor when choosing a fencing material, but various factors go into the total cost. To start, there are material costs. Wood tends to be the cheapest here, but aluminum is also very reasonably priced. Aluminum comes in pre-assembled panels, guaranteeing a consistent look for the whole of your new fence. Next, there is the cost of installation. The average person should not install the aluminum fencing himself. If someone does have experience working with it, though, he or she might be able to do it and save on installation costs. Finally, there are care and maintenance costs, and this is where aluminum is the clear winner. Aluminum requires very little maintenance, and the costs are minimal for the life of the product.


Aluminum fencing comes in a variety of styles and designs, ranging from purely functional to very ornamental. You can choose between options that have thin or thick bars and wide or narrow spaces between the vertical bars. You will also find a wide range of designs for the top of the fence, from flat lines to curved designs to ones with pickets, finials, or other toppers. There is also a wide variety of options for gates, including fully automatic driveway gates

Other Advantages

Aluminum is a secure and elegant option that is also lightweight and durable. It is rustproof and very low-maintenance. While the cost of maintaining an aluminum fence is minimal, the actual maintenance tasks are minimal as well. Lastly, it can be painted almost any color or even be powder coated, which will protect the color from fading and also protect from graffiti. Aluminum is a superb choice for your fencing needs and will provide years of sturdy protection and security for your property.
