4 Advantages of Using Aluminum Fencing and Railing

When it comes to choosing residential fencing, a deer fence or railing materials, a wood fence tends to be a popular choice. Steel is viewed as a strong alternative, and a vinyl fence is another viable option — but aluminum is sometimes overlooked.

However, homeowners should know that aluminum makes for high-quality fence and railing products. Here are four reasons why we recommend an aluminum railing and fence:

Low Maintenance

Unlike other fencing materials, aluminum doesn’t require repainting or re-staining, plus an aluminum fence won’t show signs of wear for decades. Ornamental aluminum, which is often preferred for pool enclosures, is the perfect choice for a maintenance-free fence and all the ornamental we use is manufactured right here in Michigan.

High Security

Chain-link fences can be cut, wood fences are easily scaled but aluminum fencing installed with spear-topped pickets is an excellent choice for residential fences, as they provide homeowners with better access control.

Cost Effective

Aluminum is much more economical when compared to wrought iron and steel. It also tends to be less costly than a vinyl fence, and it’s cheaper than a wood fence in the long run, as aluminum comes with little upkeep and maintenance costs.

Warranty Included

Aluminum fencing and railing comes with a great warranty. Whatever your gates and access needs may be, whether you’re looking for a certified automated gate or other types of partitions, Fence Consultants provides limited lifetime warranties on Ultra Aluminum and Elite Aluminum Fence Products.
