Still not positive aluminum fencing is right for you? Aluminum fences are fabricated from alloys that are stronger than most steel fencing. Fences made from aluminum are finished with a powder coating to protect them from harmful UV radiation and weather damage. Aluminum fences are lightweight and can easily be installed on a slope by racking or stepping.
That doesn’t mean aluminum is perfect for every application, though. Horse braid fences are generally better for containing livestock and vinyl fences complement vinyl siding. Still, aluminum won’t rust like wrought iron fencing or rot the way wood does. This makes aluminum an excellent choice for pool fencing. Best of all, aluminum fences are low maintenance and offer all the protection and security of wrought iron and ornamental steel. Most aluminum fences also come with a limited lifetime warranty.
