Stylish and Sturdy Aluminum Fences
What’s not to like about aluminum fences? They’re much less expensive than traditional wrought iron. They don’t rust and are very low maintenance because of their protective powder paint coating—which fuses the paint to metal—and doesn’t require painting every few years. Oh, and did we mention how handsome aluminum fences look? We’ve seen it ourselves. Aluminum fences in Atlanta yards blend with nearly any landscape and allow visibility beyond their picket design. Plus they easily “rack” down slopes — giving them a smooth, cohesive appearance. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of aluminum fences…
Versatility. As mentioned above, aluminum fencing can be adjusted to fit your landscape, so you can use it on flat surfaces as well as sloped land without worrying about ugly gaps and awkward transitions. It also comes in a variety of timeless design options. Call Tim Moss, our fence expert to explore the variety of choices available including style, color, height, hardware, caps, etc.
Affordability. Aluminum fencing is very affordable when compared with wrought iron and steel. Although it looks as beautifully regal as wrought iron, it is less expensive to manufacture. Plus, it doesn’t require additional upkeep costs and maintenance. It is a one-time investment in your property that will last for decades without replacement.
Durability. Because aluminum is not very vulnerable to corrosion, unlike iron, it will not rust, nor will it rot or fade. Moisture or sunlight will not damage it over time. Whether attacked by ice, hail, rain, snow, sunlight, or termites, your aluminum fence will stand strong. Bottom line: you’re getting a great value for your money.
Low-Maintenance. Unlike wrought iron and wood, you won’t need to repaint or re-stain an aluminum fence. Aluminum fencing is covered in a powder paint coating during manufacturing, which fuses the paint to the metal surface so that the fence will last for decades without showing wear. It requires minimal maintenance, although some folks like to hose down their aluminum fences from time to time.
Safety. Aluminum fences are often used as a barrier, confining your pets or children to a certain area within your yard — so safety is of high importance. Often it’s used to surround a pool or hot tub, securing the area and protecting adults, kids, and animals who might take a dip accidentally or without supervision (if this is the case, be sure to review pool fence codes as well).
Sloping Ability. If the fence will be located on a slope (needless to say, quite common in Atlanta!) its ability to curve with the landscape will be crucial. It must have the ability to rack,which means that it will adjust to the slope without stair-stepped sections. A racked fence hugs the land, so there won’t be gaps or holes between the fence and the ground, and the top of the fence will be continuous. This gives your fence line a more polished appearance. Additionally, it prevents pets and wildlife from slipping beneath the fence.
Beauty. Atlanta Decking offers aluminum fencing in classic black. It provides all the elegance and stateliness of iron without the cost, maintenance, and rust. We use a hidden picket fastener system that creates a more refined finish. And, the powder coating will retain its beauty no matter what the weather brings!
