High Winds And Your Aluminum Fence

aluminum fence wind testedDon’t let Mother Nature wreak havoc on your fence.

Choose the right material and design to keep your business or home safe and secure from the elements. Man-made items can’t always stand up to the full force of Mother Nature.

However, with aluminum fences, you have the best chance of still having a solid fence after a hurricane or windstorm strikes.  This is because of the strong, durable material and coatings that come with each picket of the fence.

Depending on what type of aluminum fence you choose, you can really heighten your chances of having no damage after bad weather hits your area.

Residential vs. Commercial vs. Industrial

The choice of what type of aluminum fence to have installed isn’t as complicated as it might seem. It really depends on the purpose of the fence. If you are looking for a fence for your home, a basic residential aluminum fence will be just fine. Residential fences come with rust-free and waterproof coatings and can withstand normal weather.  Aluminum is quite resilient.

If you are looking to put a fence around your business, larger residence or apartment complex, you may find a commercial aluminum fence to be the right choice for you. Commercial fences are heavier and larger.  This helps withstand high-traffic areas and keeps your business protected.

If you haven’t already guessed it, industrial aluminum fences are even bigger and sturdier than commercial fences.  Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean the fence is incredibly tall or long; it is the pickets and rails themselves that are larger.  Larger pickets and larger rails made with a thicker gauge aluminum increase the support and resilience of the fence as a whole.

Whatever Mother Nature throws at you

Depending on where you live, there can be intense weather events like hurricanes or tornadoes all year round. If you’re worried about how your aluminum fence will hold up to high winds and debris that is hurled through the air, you may want to consider certain types of fences for your place of business.

Opting for an industrial or commercial aluminum fence means you are getting a larger, stronger fence, so you shouldn’t need to worry about most weather events that come your way. The point of having a fence around your place of business is most likely to keep unwanted guests out and to secure your property. Therefore, one consideration when choosing a fence is what type of lock and accessories you might want to reinforce the fence. Remember that a fence can be strong, tough and sturdy, but if the lock is easily injured by intense weather, the area will no longer be secure. Choosing accessories that match the intensity of your fence will help with whatever the weather throws at you.

The design of aluminum fences is what really helps in the fight against high winds. The pickets are spaced at the right distance to allow wind to go right through them. Even with mesh accessories around the doorways and gates, the strong material and well-constructed panels of aluminum fences can withstand much more than any other type of fence. Whatever you choose, know that you’re making the right choice for your home, business, and any weather that comes your way when you go with aluminum.

Breathing New Life Into Your Aluminum Fence

There are a few things you can do to change up the look of your fence to help it blend in more, or you can even help it make a statement!

Many basic aluminum fences have a similar look, and it’s understandable if you don’t want your home to be the same cookie-cutter copy as everybody else’s house in the neighborhood. Sprucing up your fence is a great way to switch things up in your yard and transform the look of your home. With a few simple DIYs, you can breathe a little life into your yard.

Do some touch-ups

When it comes to painting metal, the key DIY aluminum fence practice is to be sure you have the right tools for the material. You see, aluminum fences today are made with a high-grade coating that needs no maintenance and can withstand even the craziest weather. Even though these fences aren’t really meant to be painted the way you might paint a wooden fence, you can still give your fence some new life with touch-up spray paint.

Not just any old paint will stick to the surface of your aluminum fence. You need to make sure you have the right type with the right ingredients to keep your fence water- and rust-proof. Find a spray paint that is specifically formulated for outdoor aluminum or metal material in a hue that matches your fence. Ask a friend for an extra pair of eyes to help find any areas that could use some touching up.

Let’s get gardening

If you’ve chosen the perfect fence for your yard and are pleased with the outcome, you still might want to personalize your yard a bit to match the shiny new fence. This is where the art of gardening comes in! Peruse gardening magazines for inspiration, then head to the nearest nursery to choose some plants of various sizes and colors to give your yard a facelift.

You’ll want to choose plants that complement your fence’s height and style. Try not to completely block the views from your yard with large, bushy plants, although in some areas, that might be the exact desired result. High and narrow fence pickets look good with tall plants that have interesting branches and leaves. The shorter the bush, the more fence that will show above it, making it look more like a jail cell than a beautiful and elegant fence.

Ask some of your family and friends to come over and give you hand with the gardening. They’ll come with great advice from an outsider’s perspective and can help you choose flower colors. You can buy some extra packets of seeds as a thank you for their help!

Use the fence to your advantage

If you have unsightly areas in your yard, such as garbage cans or small storage sheds, find a way to incorporate these into the look of the fence so they do not stick out so much. You can purchase extra miniature fence panels to fence around a small area, or you can paint the items to match the fence. This is another time you may want to use strategically placed shrubbery to conceal areas you don’t want to draw attention to.

DIY aluminum fence refreshers like these are a quick and easy way to spruce up your yard and give you some extra curb appeal. With a few touch-ups, strategically placed plants, and unsightly areas covered up, your yard will look brand new in no time!

Adding Scrollwork To Your Fence Gives It A Story

Small changes to your fence, such as adding scrollwork or accessories, can create a completely different overall look, giving your fence a distinct personality.

From antique furniture to royal emblems to ironwork on the doors of Notre Dame, scrollwork as an ornamental accessory has long been a top choice to add a decorative dimension to an object. Why not add this décor piece to your home by adding scrollwork to your aluminum fence?

The main duty of a fence at your home is to section off your yard while complementing your outdoor décor. Fences come in a variety of looks and materials, with aluminum being the most affordable, sturdy and long-lasting option. With simple additions, your aluminum fence can be jazzed up in a subtle, beautiful way with a touch of elegant history.

Scrollwork gets its name because of the circular, scroll-like pattern that usually accompanies either end of the design. The fluidity of the lines adds a tranquil flow to each scroll, but when viewed as a whole piece of art, these lines create a beautifully powerful statement. Although the origins of scrollwork can’t be determined with certainty, it is thought to have been popularized by Greek art and revived by Chinese potters. Today, scrollwork is most often linked to Gothic architecture as well as the S-shaped scrolls on antique furniture.

Butterfly scrolls add a simple elegance

The size and location of each aluminum fence panel surrounding your home may help determine how you want to decorate the fence with scrollwork. A beautiful butterfly scroll can fill in the blank space between the pickets and adds a soft, regal feeling to the look of the fence. Depending on the color and finish, the butterfly scroll can make your fence stand out or blend in – it’s up to you!

Larger estate scrolls for a bolder fence

Another bit of pizzazz you can add to the pickets are large estate scrolls between each aluminum fence panel. The width of the pickets determines your choice for scrollwork, so keep this in mind when choosing a fence. If you know you want large scrollwork for a stately look, choose panels that are wide enough for the estate scrolls to fit.

Add some custom work to your fence

You may also want to add a personal touch to your fence with a custom inlay at the center of the entrance to your fence. These inlays complement fences with scrollwork and bring the whole picture together. The sky is the limit with custom work and depends entirely on what look you want for your fence.

A popular choice for homes is lettering to denote the home owner’s name or perhaps an animal associated with the area of the home. Similar to the scrolls, a custom inlay is a simple addition to the fence that has the ability to add a bit of style and depth to the look of the home.

Ornamental ironwork can be seen all around Europe and the United Kingdom on churches, royal emblems and dwellings, and other buildings of interest. It is now easier than ever to give your home this same unique look with affordable aluminum fences and the plethora of décor choices available. The hardest part will be choosing which option suits you and your home the best!

Aluminum Fence Panel Installation

At first glance, it may seem like a stretch for you to install an aluminum fence, but the truth is that it’s not really that difficult. If you have basic handyman skills, you can install your own fence.

Most of our customers install their fences themselves. It’s not that hard, and that includes driveway and walkway gates. In fact, most of our customers are doing it for the first time.

Unlike other types of fences, our aluminum fencing panels are designed for self-installation. Fences made of steel, wood, stone or wrought iron are probably not meant for installation by the customer. First of all, these materials are often heavy, and they may not be designed with the customer in mind, at least not in terms of installation.  Furthermore, unlike aluminum, steel panels are much more difficult to trim on site and there may be welding involed.

fence panel installation
We have designed our aluminum fencing panels with the idea that you will be able to erect them yourself, which can save you a lot of money. You don’t need to hire a crew to come out and put up your fence, and if you run into trouble, we’re here to help.  Moreover, there is NO on-site welding involved.  Call us and we’ll help you solve your problem. Before you even start, you can download our installation manual. Print it out and read it to get answers to most of your questions before you even start.

We say you can build your fence yourself, but you will need a helper, and it doesn’t hurt to have two. Lure them in with the promise of pizza after the job is done. You can’t get help for much less than that.

Before you get too far along, you should plot your fence runs and figure out what you need to order. Check the cost online and place your order, or call us on the phone.

Post Installation

When you build your fence, remember that it all rests on the posts. You will dig post holes for most fences, with the exception of surfaces such as decks and staircases, in which case you will need to buy our welded plated (flange) posts to support the posts.

You will dig holes of various depths and radii depending on the length of a post and your local building codes. We provide minimum guidelines for post lengths on our website so you can get the right post length. Generally, you will need to dig a hole with a 6” diameter for posts up to 2.5” square, and 8” for larger posts. Unlike wood fencing, however, the cement goes in last.

Sometimes you will end a fence run at a wall or column, or perhaps you’re using your own posts. We sell powder coated, metal mounts designed for these situations.

Putting up the Fence

If your fence includes a gate, you should install the gate first and build outward from there. Set posts as you go, and insert the fence panels in the slots we include on our prepunched posts. You can also order blank posts and mounts for transitions like angles and racked panels for hills and stairs.  After you put up a few aluminum fence panels, check the alignment before continuing. This helps you to identify problems before you’ve proceeded too far. Continue like this, and you’ll be finished before you know it!

If you get to the end of a run and need only a partial panel, just trim a panel to the needed length with a hacksaw. You’ll have to notch the partial panel to connect to the post, but this is easy to do. The entire process is very straight forward, so make the right preparations and give it a try!

Three Grades of Aluminum Fence Panels

We sell our aluminum fence panels in three grades. Based on your security, privacy and esthetic requirements, you can choose residential, commercial or industrial fence panels.

As you move from residential to commercial to industrial grade, you’re buying a fence made with more metal. The essential reason for upgrading is to accommodate increasing amounts of traffic, wear and tear.  You can buy any grade and be assured that your fence will require little to no maintenance and will not corrode. You can install any grade of fence yourself, because all our aluminum fence panels, regardless of grade, are designed for self-installation. Our customers typically install their fences themselves.

What Grade Do You Need?

industrial_aluminum_fence_spear_top_houston_texas A typical homeowner will be happy with residential aluminum fence panels. You can confidently use these around your yard, swimming pool or other areas around your residence. We offer a selection of gates for your walk or driveway. Keep in mind that your community may have specific requirements for swimming pool fences. Always consult local authorities before putting up a pool fence – or any fence, for that matter.

Our commercial fence panels are heavier than our residential fence panels. We sell these fence panels for areas with heavier traffic than is usually found around a home. Select commercial aluminum fence panels for office buildings, light industrial areas, retail centers, schools, hospitals, hotels. The rails and pickets on these fence panels are larger, and the rails have eight internal support metal ribs to add strength.

Choose our industrial aluminum fence panels for the most demanding situations, such as hospitals, warehouses, storage units, airports, hotels, military. These panels also offer the greatest security, especially if you add options such as spears and curved pickets.

The Details

All of our aluminum fencing panels and gates come in a variety of colors. Some of these colors blend in with natural surroundings, while you can choose other, brighter colors to make a statement or define a space. Our colors are powder-coated, so you will not encounter any of the issues you can face with paint like blistering, flaking or peeling.

Our residential aluminum fence panels usually have pickets spaced at 3-13/16”. Some styles are available with double pickets. You can order residential styles with flat tops or spears on top of pickets, and you can also order various kinds of finials to dress up your residential fence. Other options include scrolls and ornamental rings; these add beauty rather than functionality.

Many residential customers order the dog panel / short pickets option. These can be purchased for certain styles of fence, and they consist of panels with double pickets that are fabricated into the fence bottom to keep small animals from passing through. You can also order a security screen. This is an expanded metal, rust-free frame with a screen that attaches to either a gate or a fence panel.

Our commercial fence panels usually feature 3-5/8” picket spacing. This is somewhat tighter than the pickets on a residential fence panel. Some styles of commercial fence panel have 1-1/2” picket spacing. Most of the options discussed above can be purchased for residential aluminum fence panels.

Industrial aluminum fence panels offer the greatest security and withstand the heaviest traffic. Our industrial fence panels generally have pickets spaced at 3-11/16”. Industrial fence panels are best at thwarting intruders, and these panels come in heights of up to 10’. You can increase security with speared tops, double pickets and curved pickets.

Installing an Aluminum Pool Fence

A pool fence adds to your pool’s good looks, and more importantly, it greatly enhances its safety. It’s not that hard to perform a DIY installation. Our aluminum fence panels are easy to install yourself.  There are lots of reasons for installing a pool fence. Of course, the right fence can add immeasurably to your pool area’s looks, but if you’re looking for reasons, you can’t find a better one than safety. A pool fence dramatically reduces the chances of an unauthorized person entering your pool area and drowning. All too often, that person is a small child whose life could end suddenly and dramatically by drowning. A pool fence also adds to your privacy. It’s a good feeling when you know your guests and family have the area to themselves.

S10_aluminum_pool_fence_2015Aluminum fence panels are particularly good for a DIY pool fence. Most of our customers install their fences on their own, eliminating the need for a costly contractor. Even if you prefer not to get involved, you can hire a person who is handy with tools to take your place for a reasonable price. Aluminum fence panels are easy to work with because they’re lightweight, yet they’re strong and sturdy.

Pool Fence Regulations and Requirements

Pools have unique safety requirements, and local communities often issue specific regulations for their installation. If you have a homeowners’ association, you should see if they have regulations as well. These likely concern aesthetics rather than safety. In either case, you could find yourself removing the fence you just built if you run afoul of rules or regulations, so do your homework.

The BOCA Code

The Building Officials Code Administrators International, Inc. issues what is called the BOCA code for pool fences. Compliance with the BOCA code means your fence will help keep people out of your pool area, and it will make it difficult for small children to enter the pool area unaccompanied. All of our pool fencing meets the BOCA code.

The BOCA code includes the following requirements: The fence’s height must be 48” or greater. The horizontal rails must be separated by at least 45”. This minimizes the footholds and the chances that someone can scale from the lower to the higher foothold. Vertical pickets must be less than 4” apart. This is too small for a small child to pass through. The bottom rail can be no further than 4 inches from the ground. Again, this prevents a small child from entering the area. A gate’s latch must be at least 4-1/2 feet (54”) high, which makes it difficult for a child to reach. Gates must be both self-locking and self-closing, and they must open away from the pool.

Magna Latch Gate Locks

You can enhance the safety of your aluminum pool fence by purchasing a Magna Latch gate lock. This self-latching lock is key-lockable. It extends beyond the top of the gate, making it hard for children to reach it.

Benefits of Aluminum Fence Panels

We discussed earlier how easy it is to install a DIY pool fence. Aluminum has other advantages, too. Aluminum does not corrode, and our powder-coated colors won’t bubble, flake or peel. Aluminum doesn’t get too brittle in cold weather, and it retains its strength when it’s hot outside.

Fencing Costs Depend on Several Factors

The cost of your aluminum fence depends on a number of factors. These include the type of fence you select, the total length of fencing and the terrain.

Three primary factors will affect your aluminum fence cost. The first of these is the linear footage of the fence, followed by the fence type and the terrain. Gates will also add to your cost. Fortunately, if you buy from us, you will likely be installing your own fence, which will save you a significant sum on labor.

Contractors, Designs and Costs

Our customers tend to install their own fences. If you’d rather have someone else do the work, ask contractors or a handyman to provide separate estimates for labor and materials. This way, you can better compare estimates from different contractors. In addition, you can better identify material costs that might give you a clue to their quality. In other words, low material costs likely mean lower quality or imported materials.  You can also forego using a contractor and just pay a handyman to do the work. In that case, you only need to order your fencing and pay someone by the hour to put up the fence.

Black Aluminum Fence CostYour costs will go up if you have a nonstandard or complex design. Examples of these are curved fence runs and slopes or stairs. Both situations require special techniques or materials. Nevertheless, aluminum fares well against competing materials such as wood or steel. Aluminum fence panels are easily trimmed to size, for one thing, and we can provide swivel mounts that allow you to easily form almost any angle. Similarly, if you’re building a fence on a hill, it’s much easier to trim our panels than it is to adapt heavy steel or wood to the terrain. In all of these cases, a contractor is going to charge you extra money, increasing your aluminum fence cost, so think again about doing the work yourself.

Other Factors

It also makes a difference where you put up your fence. Here are some factors to consider.  If your site is hard to get to, that means it will take longer to get materials onto the site, or you might need special equipment to carry them in. Existing structures, brush, trees and rocks can all add to the time it takes to build your fence.

The kind of earth at your site can affect the digging of post holes for posts. Rocks are clearly a problem, and you can also run into trouble with ground that is rich in clay. Groundwater can pose its own set of challenges.  Surface mounting posts will also incur additional cost for post flanges.

Trees can also be problematic. A tree can constitute an obstacle to your fence route, in which case you’ll have to remove it. You could also try to build around it, but that will probably add to your costs. You might also run into older trees that have put down a tangle of thick, hard roots that can cause havoc when you’re digging post holes.

You often need to know your property line. That means hiring a surveyor to figure it out. You can skip this step, but you could be in a lot of trouble if your fence goes up on your neighbor’s property. In some areas, local codes require that you put up your fence at an offset. That means you have to build your fence some minimum distance back from the border. It is well worth determining the property line to avoid these issues.

It’s Not That Hard to Install Aluminum Fence Panels

Most of our customers install our aluminum fences themselves. Unless you’re all thumbs, you can do the same.

If you think it’s too difficult to install your aluminum fence, you should think again. Our customers typically install the fences they buy from us, and most of them have never done it before. When you buy a wood or steel fence, you know you’ll have to pay someone to install it. That’s not the case with our aluminum fence panels. We designed our system so you can install your own fence, which saves a lot of money. Consider investing a small amount of sweat equity to install your fence.

Start by reading our installation manual. We provide a download link on our website. You will see that you need no special skills to install our aluminum fence panels, and if you have questions, just call and we’ll set you straight.  About 90% of our home owner customers nationwide install our products themselves, and most have never installed a fence before.

Outside of a few tools, you will need nothing more than a friend to help you install your fence. If you really don’t want to do the work, you can hire someone to take care of the rest of the installation.


Our system consists mainly of a series of posts, which you might view as the skeleton, upon which you will insert your fence panels.  Typically, you will start with a gate, cement the gate posts and hang your gate with gate hinges and a lock.  Then, work off the gate with 1 fence panel.  Temporarily secure the panel into 2 posts.  Make sure everything is level and then set the panel-to-post connection with stainless steel screws that are automatically included with your order.  Your learning curve is going to skyrocket and then you can setup 2 or 3 or 4 panels at a time and follow the same procedure.  If you’re installing a fence on a deck or stairwell, you can buy welded plates upon which you can erect your posts on top of an existing hard surface.

Our website details the sizes of posts you’ll need depending on the fence height. Dig your holes at least 6” to 8″ in diameter for posts up to 2.5” square, and 8” for larger posts. Your bag of cement should have guidelines to help you determine how much cement you’ll need.

You might terminate a fence run at a column or wall, or perhaps your fence abuts a building. We offer straight mounts to make those connections. You can also buy horizontal swivel mounts if you want to accommodate an angle with your fence, and you can use our vertical swivel mounts for stairs and steep slopes.  If you need a partial section of a panel to complete a run, you can easily cut any fence panel on-site.  We call it trim to fit.  You cannot cut or trim gates on-site because gates are welded into a frame.


Your fence project will likely include walkway gates or aluminum driveway gates. You should start your installation with the gate and work your way outward from there with your fence panels.

Set the posts for your gate first. You may have to use larger posts for your gate because they will support a heavier load. Remember that when digging your holes. Position your aluminum driveway gates or walkway gates with a space of about 0.75” between the gate and the post.  Larger gates require about 4 inches of spacing when using our Heavy Duty Gate Hinges.  Check your measurements, and then drill the necessary holes and place the hinges.

A Final Word

We’ve taken you through the basics, and now you should read our installation manual and make yourself comfortable with the procedure. We’re sure you’ll use your newfound knowledge to accomplish a quick, trouble-free installation.

Stay Safe with an Aluminum Swimming Pool Fence

Swimming season may be winding down soon, but it’s not too late to erect an aluminum fence around your pool. Aluminum fence panels look great, and it’s been shown that pool fences effectively deter drowning accidents.

If you own a swimming pool, you should seriously think about the possibility of an accident involving someone who is not supposed to be there. If you don’t have a fence around your pool or you have a fence that is not secure, you’re inviting people to imperil themselves. Remember that those people are all too often children. Consider the peace of mind of knowing your pool is secure. A properly designed aluminum pool fence can prevent unauthorized entry and minimize the chances of an accidental death or serious injury in your pool.

Four Sides Are Better than Three

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a pool fence or other effective barrier can keep young children away from your pool without a caregiver’s knowledge. Some people build a three-sided fence around their pool, with their home or some other structure serving as the fourth side. This is not nearly as effective as a four-sided fence. With a four-sided fence, the chance of a child drowning in your pool is 83 percent less than it is with a three-sided fence. This is because a three-sided fence can allow entry from the home, either through a window or right through the door. Stick with four sides if possible.

No Silver Bullet

Putting up a pool fence doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be vigilant. Kids are going to look for ways to go where they want to go. However, a fence can slow them down, and that can make the difference between life and death. When you plan your fence, consider the surroundings. Will the fence be right next to your air handling unit? If so, you might as well put a stepladder next to it. Plan the fence in a layout that minimizes ways to penetrate it.

The BOCA Pool Fence Code

Communities often follow the pool fence code of the Building Officials and Code Administrators International, Inc. (BOCA). Every aluminum pool fence we sell meets the BOCA code.

The BOCA code stipulates a fence height of at least 48 inches. A 4-inch diameter sphere should not pass through it. Any gate must be lockable, open outward, and be self-closing and self-latching. There are also specific requirements for locks. In addition, the fence and gate must not offer an opening that might allow someone to reach through to unlatch the gate.

We’ve discussed three-sided versus four-sided fences. If you do put up a three-sided fence, you will need to fit any doors that open into the area with alarms, among other safety measures.

Drowning is a Serious Issue

Drowning is a serious cause of death in the United States. The CDC says an average of about ten people die daily from drowning in non-boating related incidents. Twenty percent of them are kids under 15 years of age. There are also nonfatal drownings, some of them resulting in brain damage. In 2009, drowning accounted for almost a third of the deaths of children between 1 and 4 years old from unintentional injuries. The primary place where these accidents occurred was home swimming pools.

Aluminum Versus the Competition

Aluminum isn’t your only choice in fencing materials, but we think it stands up to the competition. Don’t just take our word for it; if you do some research, we think you’ll see the advantages of aluminum fencing panels.

You have a choice from many materials if you are shopping for fencing. Needless to say, we prefer that you opt for aluminum. However, to be perfectly honest, competing materials have their own advantages, and one of them might prove best for your application.

While shopping for fencing, you might find an advantage in steel, wood, vinyl, wrought iron, chain link or some other type of fencing. Research your options and do what is best for you. We think aluminum fences have enough unique advantages that many potential customers will buy from us. However, in the end, we want everyone to do what works best for them.

Steel Fences

Steel is the ticket if you want strength, but it comes at the price of susceptibility to corrosion and rust. Steel can work well if you have to rack your fencing for a slope or stairway. It is not good for self-installation because of its weight. Aluminum and vinyl are much better in this regard. Steel can be costly, and it is not as versatile as some other materials. Finally, a steel fence doesn’t always offer great privacy and it’s much harder to work with.

Wrought Iron Fences

You can’t do better than wrought iron if you want a traditional-looking fence. However, it can be quite heavy, and the material is naturally prone to rust.  Shipping costs can be extraordinary.  Wrought iron can be expensive, especially if you include the cost of installation. Few people are going to go the DIY route with wrought iron, and that means you’ll be hiring a crew to do the work. Unlike our aluminum fences, wrought iron doesn’t come in panels that are easily erected.

Chain-Link Fencing

Chain-link fencing is priced reasonably, holds up well and requires little maintenance. It will rust, however. Chain-link fences are fairly easy to install, although they are considerably heavier than aluminum fences. The knock on chain-link fences relates to esthetics. They just aren’t stylish or pretty. That can be fine for a factory, but it’s not so great for a home in a leafy subdivision. When it comes to security, chain-link fencing is not hard to climb. You can top it with barbed wire, of course, which brings us back to esthetics.

Vinyl Fencing

You can buy various styles of vinyl fences. It’s a strong, durable material, and it holds up well to the elements. Vinyl is light and easy to install. It is prone to dents and dings, so you might have to repair or replace small sections occasionally. Vinyl can also offer good privacy.

Wood Fencing

Wood certainly looks good, and everyone likes the natural look. It’s not hard to rack a wood fence for slopes or stairs, and it’s a great choice for privacy. Wood is somewhat heavy and unwieldy for DIY installation, however, and it can require some carpentry skills depending on the nature of the fence. Wood requires periodic maintenance, such as wood treatment and staining.

Aluminum Fencing

Aluminum is an economical alternative, and our aluminum fencing panels are made for DIY installation. We offer a number of styles so you can find the right one to suit your needs. Aluminum requires very little maintenance, and it holds up well to weather. We offer several colors and finishes, plus a host of options to make your fence more secure.
