Like metal chain link fences, aluminum is another great alternative to standard solid metal that has long been used for all kinds of fencing solutions. Aluminum is also a durable material that doesn’t succumb easily to the outdoor elements and requires minimal upkeep, once installed. Aluminum fencing often comes in the form of tubular posts which are then cross-linked with horizontal panels or rails. If you want a durable fencing solution that versatile and affordable, then aluminum might be the best option for you.
Tubular Fence Posts
Tubular fence posts are one of the most popular ways that aluminum fencing is installed. Tubular fence posts are installed in a vertical angle to hold together the horizontal posts that help create the interiors of the fence. The tubular posts are then topped off with a cap and can be painted or designed to your liking. This makes them appealing to clients who want some say in the customization process of their fence and want to add some personal flair to an otherwise plain fencing design.
Wrought Iron Fence
Although not aluminum, another durable metal fencing solution comes in the form of wrought iron. These two items are similar in structure because of how they look and are installed into outdoor fencing solutions. With wrought iron, there are not tubular posts but rather solid iron posts that serve as bonding points for the rest of the interior, horizontal posts. Choosing between aluminum tubular posts and wrought iron fences can be difficult, especially if you aren’t sure what your price point is or what you’re looking for in a fencing material. We help clients map out the pros and cons of each so that you can know for sure what you’re getting with both materials.
Unlike other forms of solid metal fencing, aluminum will not rust as it is not prone to corrosion. This means that it will readily combat the outdoor elements and change in temperatures, regardless of the season or time of year. This gives clients some peace of mind when they invest in aluminum fencing as they can know that their fences won’t easily deteriorate when left alone or unkept for long periods of time. With aluminum fencing, it’s more obvious, than with other fencing solutions, that you’re getting great value for your money and a long-lasting solution to your fencing needs.
If you’re looking to customize your aluminum fencing, you can rest easy know that it’s simple with aluminum. Aluminum can easily be stained or painted and once done, it doesn’t require much more or upkeep after that. This means that it’s a one-time job and done, as any maintenance afterwards is usually cleaning or repairs in the structure. Using a powder paint solution, we’re able to fuse the product with the rest of the metal and bond it like no other. This leaves you with an even and solid paint cover that will never need to be touched up again.
