Aluminum Fencing: A Cost-Effective Alternative to Wrought Iron
Wrought iron fencing. It’s synonymous with sophistication, security and style.
Iron fencing also happens to be one of the most expensive fencing options available, averaging $20-30 per foot. It requires regular maintenance to prevent rust.
You might be thinking, “There has to be a better option.”
You’re right — there is aluminum fencing.
Aluminum fencing is a cost-effective and visually appealing alternative to wrought iron, featuring long-lasting durability and design options ranging from classic to contemporary. Here are 3 major advantages of aluminum fences:
Not only does aluminum fencing cost significantly less than wrought iron, but aluminum is essentially impervious to ice, snow and rain. It resists rust and does not fade in the sun. Aluminum is the third most abundant element on earth, so it gets along just fine with Mother Nature.
Unlike wrought iron fencing, which requires regular maintenance to prevent corrosion, aluminum fencing is largely maintenance-free. That means more money in your pocket, and more time spent enjoying the yard — not working in it.
2. Customizable Design
You don’t have to sacrifice style to save money with aluminum fencing. Aluminum fencing is available in many styles, colors, and finishes. Available accessories like tri-finials and quad-finials (these are the decorative “pikes” and “spears” that adorn some fence rails), as well as butterfly scrolls and circular elements, give aluminum fences the same elegance as more expensive wrought iron fences.
Aluminum fences are even available in custom colors to complement your home.
3. Environmentally Friendly
Aluminum fencing is environmentally friendly, too. Aluminum fences last for decades and are frequently manufactured from recycled materials. And, unlike wrought iron fencing, aluminum fencing does not need to be repainted.
