Uses of Aluminum Fencing

When most of us think of the word “aluminum,” we don’t automatically think “fence.” If anything, we’re more likely to associate it with the foil we wrap our kids’ lunch sandwiches in. But an aluminum fence is one of the best home or business investments you can make!

Aluminum fences are durable, attractive, quick to install, and relatively low-maintenance. Best of all, they’re versatile in their uses. Their chief advantages include:

 

1. Safety
An unguarded swimming pool can be a menace to children or pets. Investing in an aluminum fence is a smart way to ensure that no unsupervised visitors wander into your pool area. You can also use them to provide a guard rail for balconies or stairways to ward off potential accidents.

 

2. Appearance

Let’s face it: aluminum fences look impressive, and an attractive fence will increase the ultimate value of your property over time. They’re available in a variety of colors and styles, so you can customize them to match the style of your home or business.

 

3. Discourage theft

Aluminum fences are also a good way to contain a home and discourage would-be burglars. They won’t radically change the appearance of your property, but they’ll ensure that you feel safer when you’re there.

 

4. Saving money

Worried about cost? Don’t fret. An aluminum fence will cost more than other types of fences at first, but it will end up saving you money in the long run. A wood fence or vinyl fence will require regular upkeep, but aluminum fences require very little maintenance, leaving you free to enjoy your (safer, better-looking) property.

The Beauty and Benefits of a Cedar Fence

Picking the right kind of fence for your property is one of those things that doesn’t seem that hard until you sit down to draw up the plans—and suddenly realize how many different options are staring you in the face.

Should you go with a wood or aluminum fence? Would a vinyl or wrought iron fence be more appropriate for the area? How do you juggle the various factors of appearance, durability, and cost?

Every type of fence has its advantages, but it’s hard to argue with the lasting value provided by a cedar fence. Here’s why:

They’re durable- Cedar wood resists rot and decay, thus remaining sturdy for years while still being relatively light and easy to install. Therefore, cedar fences can be relied on to last far longer than other types of wood fences. Cedar is exceptionally strong, so you won’t have to worry about the wood bending or warping after only a few years of use.

 

They’re attractive (except to bugs)- Cedar wood is among the finest-looking material you’ll ever see in a fence. And that beauty will last; a cedar fence weathers well over time, eventually turning a lovely shade of silver gray. They also give off a pleasant “forest” scent, which has the bonus of repelling insects.

 

They’re easy to maintain- As with all wood products, weather and moisture can take a toll on cedar fences. But keeping them fresh and healthy-looking is simple: Inspect them every few months and be quick to clean, repair, and seal any damaged areas, and you’ll have a beautiful fence for years to come.
