Aluminum fences are becoming the most popular type of metal fencing for homeowners today. They are versatile, durable, and safe, providing long-lasting security for your property while enhancing its appearance. Aluminum fences can be used in a variety of ways such as enclosing your entire property, securing a business while boosting its appearance, or protecting pool areas in order to improve child safety. Read on for a closer look at some of the most popular aluminum fence applications.
Enhancing Your Property
Aluminum fencing is ideal for enclosing an entire estate. Because metal fencing has classically been used on large lots to create a timeless appearance, aluminum fencing can fill the same role. With different styles for the top of the fence, you can evoke any kind of look ranging from classical to modern. Aluminum fences also don’t require the maintenance that traditional wrought iron fences needed, but are instead able to perform year after year without needing to be painted, stained, or sealed.
Beautifying Your Business
Businesses can also benefit from using an ornamental aluminum fence on all of or a portion of the property. These kinds of fences can be used as visually appealing dividers to differentiate areas of your property and control access. Aluminum fences can also provide necessary security while adding an elegant touch to your business property.
Protecting Your Children
Metal fences have traditionally been used for pool fencing, and aluminum fencing excels in this area. Because aluminum fencing is corrosion-resistant, it’s ideal for use around the pool. It is strong and sturdy, and unable to be climbed by children. Aluminum fences can be constructed to easily conform to safety regulations that ensure that your pool area can be safely enclosed to prevent accidental intrusion by young ones.

Adding a fence is a great way to increase the value, security, and privacy of your home or business. Depending upon your needs, there are a few types of low-maintenance fencing that are perfect for residential and commercial applications. Vinyl fencing, for example, is incredibly easy to care for and requires very little maintenance. Chain link is also a popular choice for homeowners and businesses looking to secure their property with a cost-effective fencing material. Read on to learn more about these low-maintenance fencing solutions for your home or business.
Chain Link Fencing
Chain link fences are the best choice for property owners who want to maintain high visibility on their property while protecting their assets and deterring unwelcome visitors. This type of fencing is perfect for businesses with outdoor storage areas that contain expensive vehicles and materials or sensitive areas that require access control. Chain link is highly modular and can be customized with different pieces to suit your property’s specific needs.
Vinyl fencing is much-desired by homeowners and smaller businesses looking to boost their property’s exterior appearance. Because vinyl fencing requires virtually no maintenance, the investment stands on installation and materials cost—after that, the fence basically pays for itself. In addition to helping you avoid the maintenance costs associated with other fencing materials, vinyl fencing also lasts much longer than wood and wrought iron. Because it does not rot, rust, or warp, vinyl fences will not need to be replaced as frequently as other fence options.
Paramount Fence carries a wide selection of low-maintenance fencing materials. And because we are the Chicagoland’s premier residential and commercial fencing company, you can trust us with all of your fencing needs.

It can be tempting to mix concrete for your fence posts in the holes themselves, pouring dry ready-mix and then adding water with a hose. However, this often results in an uneven set with poor long-term strength. It’s best to mix the concrete in a wheelbarrow or bucket beforehand and thoroughly mix to fully distribute water.
This video has some important tips regarding mixing and setting concrete, including what to do with non-solid posts like chain link or vinyl fencing. It’s vital that the posts be set in cement and not soil. Even sand or gravel still promotes movement and rot in wooden posts as moisture is absorbed.
