There are few reasons to choose a chain link fence when there are such superior alternatives that will last longer and give you much better security.
Chain link fences had their glory days, but it’s about time for another fence to take the spotlight. Chain link and even wooden fences are inexpensive and easy to install, which are both important qualities in a fence. Thankfully, other fence types are also easy on the wallet and easy to erect, with more positive attributes. Why choose a fence that will need replaced or fixed frequently when you can get a sturdy, beautiful, inexpensive and easy-to-maintain aluminum fence instead?
Why go aluminum?
For the what you are getting, the price really cannot be beat. You might find some chain link or wooden fences to be easier on the wallet, but you really have to consider the long run. If you must continuously pay for upkeep and maintenance season after season, the initially cheap price tag suddenly goes way up, as do the time and effort required on your part.
The sturdiness and durability of aluminum is a big factor that spurs people to choose this material for their fence. Don’t be fooled by the flimsy nature of aluminum foil on the leftovers in your kitchen. Aluminum is a strong metal, even though it is lighter than other popular fence choices, such as iron. Commercial aluminum fence panels can withstand serious wind and other forces of nature without having anything additional built to hold the fence up. This is perfect for people living in places that are prone to extreme weather conditions.
In addition to being completely durable and sturdy, aluminum is easy to maintain. There is hardly anything that needs to be done to maintain your fence besides the occasional rinse and wipe down of the panels if they are exposed to high levels of salt from nearby ocean air or salted roads in winter. An occasional check of the coating of aluminum to ensure there haven’t been any major scratches in the surface is the extent of the maintenance required, with a quick touchup of spray paint being the hardest part of the upkeep.
Out with the old, in with the new
Aesthetically, commercial aluminum fence panels can give a property a modern, elegant or classic look even with the most basic design elements. There are some great additions for aluminum fences that can dress up your property as much or as little as you desire. From colored panels to finials and spear tops, to customized driveway gate plates, there are plenty of ways to personalize your fence to the property.
Because aluminum fences are so strong and designed so well, they provide an excellent added layer of protection for your home or place of business. The metal is tough to cut through and nearly impossible to climb because there are no foot holds. Try to say that about your old chain link or wooden fence! The privacy choices with various panels, gates and locks also help with the safety and security of your property.
From safety and durability to aesthetics and design, there are plenty of reasons aluminum is the way to go for your next fence. Its ability to last longer than any other type of fence while staying in excellent condition with minimal upkeep makes aluminum the best choice for your fencing needs.
