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.

Choosing a Fence by Price

Erecting a fence is a major project that can be extremely expensive. Individuals need to balance the vision they have of the “perfect” fence with budgetary concerns.

That doesn’t include installation costs.

Chain link fencing is by far the least expensive at $5 to $20 per foot, depending on the height.  It’s commonly used for security and safety purposes, keeping children and pets contained, and preventing the entry of human and wildlife intruders. It’s easy and quick to install.

Aluminum

The cost of aluminum fencing is approximately $22 per linear foot. It’s highly decorative, available in multiple styles and colors, and can be topped with spikes for an additional level of security. It’s low maintenance and has a stately, elegant appearance.

Tips for Choosing Fence Material for Your Yard

Homeowners have multiple material choices for their fencing. You can choose from metal, PVC, wood, vinyl, composite, SimTek®, and masonry styles with a wealth of design options within each material type. There are pros and cons for each type and you can use the following tips for selecting the fencing materials that best fits your individual needs.

Building Codes and HOAs

Communities often have their own set of building codes about the type, style, color, materials, and height of the fencing that can be erected. If your area has a homeowners association (HOA) your options may be limited to what the HOA allows.

Cost

Fencing and the installation can represent a significant expense and you’ll need to know how much you can or are willing to spend. You may need to budget more to the project or seek a more cost-effective alternative, depending upon what you envision for your property.

Durability

The predations of insect pests, mold, and degradation from wind, rain, sun, and salt spray are very real considerations. The ability of your fence to withstand those elements and the unique climate will also be a consideration for the long-term durability of the fencing you choose.

Maintenance

Some types of fencing require regular inspections and periodic maintenance, while others are almost maintenance-free. Some may need to be painted, stained or sealed. An additional consideration in Florida is hurricanes and the associated damage they can sustain or inflict. Some types of fencing are able to withstand hurricane-force winds.

Objective

It’s important to know why you want a fence. They can be used for beautification, safety and security, to contain children or pets, minimizing road-noise, or to establish boundaries. The reason you want a fence will influence the material that’s selected.

Style

You may want a fence that blends into the surrounding architecture and prevailing styles or you may want something that’s a marked departure that makes your home stand out. You can choose from highly elaborate styles or no-frills options, but you should always research any relevant codes and regulations before making a decision.
