The Long-Lasting Aluminum Fence

There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about aluminum fences, much of which is based on outdated information and a lack of understanding of modern manufacturing methods. It offers strength, security and durability while providing a look of traditional elegance. Aluminum has many qualities to recommend it far beyond its durability and beauty.

Rust

One of the most attractive elements of aluminum fencing is its ability to stand up to rust and corrosion. Some research estimates that the longevity of aluminum can be up to 10,000 years before it would begin to break down and disintegrate. It also tolerates UV rays without fading.

Rot and Insects

Aluminum fencing isn’t subject to rot and that’s a definite plus in Florida’s humid weather and an environment that can see significant rainfall. The material is also highly unappealing to insect pests. Insects can infiltrate other types of materials and play a significant role in rot.

Low Maintenance

Owners of an aluminum fence won’t have to spend time staining or painting it to keep it looking attractive. A powder coating can be applied that will last for years to keep it looking good without any special maintenance requirements.

Easy Replacement

If a section of aluminum fencing becomes damaged under any unforeseen circumstance, it can be easily replaced in the same style and color.

Environmentally Friendly

Aluminum fencing is a popular choice for those that want an eco-friendly solution. The material is 100 percent recyclable.

Customizable and Versatile

Modern aluminum fencing can be customized in a myriad of stylings, including the spacing of the pickets and the top of the upright components. It can be installed in multiple ways to accommodate an extensive array of environmental aesthetics.

Cost and Security

Aluminum is far less expensive than wrought iron, while providing many of the same properties. It provides an enhanced level of safety for children, pets and property.

PVC/Vinyl

PVC fencing is a type of vinyl that stands up to harsh weather conditions without rotting, chipping, splintering or peeling. It’s manufactured with UV inhibitors to prevent it from becoming brittle or yellowing from UV rays. The material also withstands high winds, doesn’t need painting or staining, and is unappealing to insects. This type of vinyl fencing has earned the Dade County Product Approval Certification. Vinyl is five times stronger than wood and it’s recyclable.

Aluminum

It’s always best to consult with fencing professionals before deciding on a particular material. Pricing can vary widely and individuals will want to comparison shop.

It’s also important for individuals to know why they want a fence, which will affect the choice of material.

Chain Link Fence is Great for Pet Enclosures

The installation of chain link fencing is the preferred method of corralling rambunctious canines whether it’s in the back yard or at the local dog park. There are multiple benefits to chain link fencing for pet enclosures that aren’t available with other options.

Safety

The pattern in chain link fencing provides pet parents with safety and security for their dog. Available in multiple heights, it’s a deterrent to canines that try to jump and can be installed with preventative measures for those that try to burrow. It’s effective for keeping out unwanted wildlife. Fencing can be installed with child-proof latches and self-closing springs for another level of safety.

Puppies like to explore and a very real danger is that a puppy will try to climb between the rails of traditional fencing and get stuck or actually make it through to the other side. The same is true of smaller dogs. Chain link fencing has a close-knit pattern too small for puppies or small dogs to wiggle through.

Cost

Expense is a major consideration for homeowners or communities that want to create a dog park for residents. Chain link fencing is highly cost-effective. A vinyl coating can be applied in multiple colors to coordinate with surroundings and it’s an easy matter to attach relevant signage for the public spaces to make individuals aware of pertinent rules.

Durability

The average chain link fence will last up to 15 years and choosing a smaller gauge wire can increase the strength. It’s also quick and easy for professional installers to erect, meaning the amenity can be offered to residents in fairly little time or homeowners can allow their canines to begin exploring their own backyard unfettered.

Easy Maintenance

Chain link fencing requires very little in the way of maintenance. If a section of fencing becomes damaged, it’s a simple matter to repair it or to replace the damaged portion.
