Aluminum Fencing for a Budget

Aluminum fencing has a wide variety of attributes, making it ideal for a clean-looking enclosure when appearances are important. It’s available in multiple colors to accent or blend in with any environment. Security, durability and elegance are the benchmarks of aluminum fencing and it increases property values.

Strength

It’s a little-known fact that the Wright brothers used aluminum for the crankcase in their first airplane engine. It was the first time the metal was used in aircraft design and has since gone on to be a star in the space industry. It’s strong enough to withstand the stresses occurring during spacecraft launches and has been used by NASA, in Skylab, and the International Space Station.

Cost

One of the most attractive attributes for average individuals is the cost. It’s an affordable option for the budget conscious and can last for up to 50 years when properly maintained. There are multiple styles from which to choose and the material can be fashioned to emulate the appearance of high-end wrought iron but without the expensive price tag.

Security

It’s an excellent security choice to prevent entry by unwanted human intruders, along with dangerous wildlife and loose domestic animals. It’s equally applicable to contain children and pets. Options are available that can be installed to keep pets in that are prone to digging. Aluminum can also be affixed with spikes on top for added security.

Aluminum fencing is incredibly versatile and appropriate for multiple environments, from homes, businesses and commercial enterprises to sports fields and public parks. It’s a low-maintenance metal that requires little effort to keep its appearance.

Environmentally Friendly

It’s an environmentally friendly option for eco-minded individuals and the material can be recycled at the end of its lifespan. People have been recycling aluminum for over 100 years and 75 percent of aluminum that’s been produced is still being used today. With that kind of durability, it’s no wonder that aluminum is a favorite fencing choice for budget-conscious individuals.

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There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about aluminum fences, much of which is based on outdated information and a lack of understanding of modern manufacturing methods.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.
