Advantages of Using Aluminum For Fence Installation
When replacing an old fence or installing a brand new one, perhaps the most important decision is what material you will use. The material you select determines the installation cost, how long the fence will last, and any future maintenance needs. This is why many people opt for aluminum over wood, PVC and other common materials for the installation of a new fence. Here are some advantages for why this is the case.
Lower Cost, but Classic Look
When comparing against other materials, aluminum fencing has a similar look to wrought iron and steel fences. However, aluminum is more lightweight, so it requires less specialized production. This means you can use aluminum fencing at a fraction of the cost of other decorative metal fences. Also, aluminum is one-third of the weight of steel fencing. So it is easier to transport and install. All of these signs point to a lower installation cost with aluminum, while not losing anything with the look of the fence.
Less Worry With Land’s Topography
Sometimes you don’t have a choice where you will be installing a fence. So sometimes that fence is on a hill or some sort of uneven property. This might exclude some fencing materials, since they can’t be installed on a slope. However, aluminum is not one of these materials. Aluminum is known as a rackable material. Rackable fences are adjustable. So these fences fit the topography of any yard without any gaps along the bottom of the fence. The elimination of these gaps is essential to keeping your yard secure and beautiful. If your fence has holes, animals or intruders can get onto your property. Also, holes and gaps simply make the fence look ugly. Nobody wants an ugly fence.
More Secure Than Some Other Materials
If security is a high priority, then using aluminum is smart. Of course, all high-quality fences offer a measure of security. However, some fencing materials are easier for intruders to get past than others. For example, you can cut a chain-link fence with the right tools. Aluminum fences, especially those with spear pickets, provide more security. They are harder to climb and impossible to cut through. So if that is what you need, then aluminum is the way to go!
Often, the risk of corrosion for a metal fence typically depends as much on the finish as the metal. However, it is worth noting that aluminum is one of the least vulnerable to corrosion. And unlike steel, aluminum doesn’t rust. This is because aluminum is a non-ferrous metal and reacts less to moisture. But this does not mean you don’t want a protective finish with the aluminum fence installation, but you won’t have to try to prevent or treat rust. So that’s a plus.
