Aluminum Fencing Will Add Durability and Elegance to Your Home

When you are considering all the fencing options on the market, you should really put aluminum fencing at the top of your list. Aluminum fencing is beautiful and offers you the needed security and separation without all the maintenance that comes with a wooden fence.

A Variety of Styles 
If you want a fence that doesn't feel like a large wall of separation, but instead is more open and allows you to still see past your yard, then an aluminum fence is a great choice. Aluminum fencing can fit with any taste in style. If you like modern clean lines, aluminum fencing can accomplish that look. Or perhaps you are looking for something a little more ornate and regal, in which case aluminum fencing is still a great choice.

Durability is Second to None 
When you choose aluminum fencing, you are picking a product that was specifically designed to have no run lines or seams, and therefore it won't accumulate water or dirt. This means that your aluminum fence will continue looking good over time, and won't get mold or mildew on the surface.

Maintenance Free
Additionally, an aluminum fence looks much like wrought iron, which is always a timeless choice of materials. Unlike iron though, aluminum is maintenance free. Our aluminum is powder-coated, which enhances its durability and also makes it very thick and strong.

Safe for Kids & Pets 
Lastly, aluminum fencing is also an option for a home with children and pets, because it has rounded edges, so no fear of your loved ones getting harmed by your fence.

Having a fence installed around your home can be a big decision. But the great durability and look of aluminum fencing is sure to simplify your decision. More questions? Let us know - give us a call at (615) 635-8040... we’d love to help.

5 Things You Should Know About Fence Installation

A fence wears many hats. It is, all at once, a way to add beauty, security, privacy, and protection for a residential or commercial property or business.

Those who have fences already know the benefits of fence installation, but for those who don't, here are five things you should know.

  1. Research the type of fence that you want before scheduling installation, and know the reason that you want a fence in the first place. Different materials, heights and layouts will be ideal for different reasons: privacy, keeping in your pets, security, etc. 
  2. Know the type of material and design that you want. Fences range widely in materials and styles, so the type that suits you and your situation best will also vary. Some considerations include maintenance, style, weather resistance, and so on. 
  3. Find out if you are allowed to install a fence on your property. Contact local government officials and zoning committees, and ask about installing a fence on your particular parcel. 
  4. Never install a fence made of the wrong material in an area where weather and environment can adversely affect it. Colder climates will need deeper post holes to avoid freeze line issues, while proper material protection and climate defense are also a must. 
  5. Don't go it alone; hire a professional for proper installation. Fence installation is sometimes difficult and requires a concerted effort to get it right. If you have never installed a fence in the past, consider hiring a fencing contractor to ensure your fence's longevity and durability.
