Choosing an Aluminum Fence
luminum fence has been gaining in popularity over the past 20 years, largely due in part to the increase of swimming pools installed by homeowners. Since most local communities require a fence around a swimming pool for safety reasons, aluminum fence appeals to many consumers because of it’s open picket style, has the beauty of wrought iron, is maintenance free, and can be installed quickly by a homeowner- eliminating installation costs. Here are some additional reasons aluminum fence is the fastest growing option in the fence industry:
Aluminum fence is powder coated or finished with a baked enamel coating. It will not warp or fall apart, as many wood and chain link fences do over time. Aluminum fence resists the weathering factors of extreme heat and cold and is virtually maintenance free.
Aluminum fence never rusts or rots. A good aluminum fence manufacturer offers a lifetime warranty against cracking, peeling, and fading.
Aluminum fence is not treated with chemicals that could hurt the environment or cause health concerns.
Aluminum fence is lightweight and easy to cut or miter. A hacksaw or miter saw can be used to make any installation adjustments.
Aluminum fence is usually shipped as an assembled panel. All the homeowner is required to do is set the post and then insert the entire aluminum fence panel into the post.
