4 Advantages of Aluminum Fences

Many people in Florida have unfenced yards.  Maybe you’re one of them!  There are advantages to fencing your yard.  In particular, this article is going to discuss 4 advantages of aluminum fences.  If you are interested in fencing your yard for the first time or replacing your current fencing, then you should consider aluminum fencing.

Four advantages of aluminum fences are that they are durable, versatile, offer great curb appeal, and are eco-friendly.  With these advantages in mind, aluminum fences are an excellent choice for any home or property. 

There are a variety of fencing materials available, and that can make it difficult for the consumer to decide which fencing material to choose.  While each has its advantages and probably its disadvantages too, today we will be exploring the 4 advantages of aluminum fences.

#1 Durability

Aluminum may not be the first material that comes to mind when you think about durability.  However, aluminum fences can last decades, with many in the industry being confident that they can last 50+ years!  That’s a pretty strong case for the durability of aluminum.  Aluminum is also rust-resistant which is extremely important here in Florida.  It’s no secret that we live in a humid state.  That high humidity is hard on everything.  Bikes, patio furniture, and even cars rust out here in the Sunshine State.  But, your aluminum fence won’t rust!  Additionally, aluminum is very strong which lends to its durability.  Did you know aluminum is even used to build airplanes?  Not all aluminum is thin and crushable like a Coke can!  Aluminum is durable and a great choice for your fence!

#2 Versatility

Aluminum fences are an excellent choice if you have uneven terrain that you want fenced.  Aluminum is called a rackable material.  It can be adjusted to the slope of your yard while maintaining the same distance between the ground and the bottom of your fence.   This gives your fence a nice, cohesive look.  It prevents you from having large gaps under sections of your fence.

Another aspect of the versatility of aluminum fencing is that it can be used in your front yard, back yard, or around a large property.  Because it isn’t a solid fence like a standard wood panel fence, you don’t lose visibility making it an excellent choice if you would like a fenced-in front yard.  You won’t feel closed in, but you will have the security that you desire giving you the best of both worlds.

#3 Curb Appeal

Curb appeal – two words that realtors love to use!  They are on to something though because curb appeal matters to people.  Nobody drives up to a house and says, “This is the ugliest house I have ever seen.  I HAVE to have it!”  In case you have never seen an aluminum fence, click on this link to see a vast array of aluminum fences.  They look similar to wrought-iron fences, but they do not rust like wrought iron.  There are a variety of styles to choose from that you can view in our showroom.

#4 Eco-friendly

Aluminum is a recyclable material.  Because of its decades-long lifespan, your aluminum fence may be around even after you’re gone!  But, if you are still the owner of your aluminum fence when it does come time to replace it (MANY years from now), it can be recycled.  Additionally, aluminum fences do not need to be painted, stained, or sealed to retain their beautiful appearance.  They are a great eco-friendly choice!
