Five Reasons to Choose Aluminum Fencing

Do you need a sturdy but inexpensive fence to mark your property line, keep out trespassers, and add to the overall look of your home? Here are five reasons why aluminum fencing is the perfect choice for many fencing projects.

1. Low Cost

Aluminum fencing is a much less expensive alternative to more traditional wrought iron fences. While a wrought iron fence may cost you more money than a wooden fence, it's not susceptible to rotting over time or being broken during or after the construction process.

2. Low Maintenance

Wood can become rotten and can break, and wrought iron fencing will need to be repainted every few years. Aluminum is also a nonferrous metal which means it will never rust.

 3. Security

Want added security? Choose an aluminum fence with spear-tipped pickets. A fence like this is much more difficult to breach than wooden fences which can be scaled or chain-link fences which are simple to cut with the proper tools.

4. Rakablity

The ability of fences to be placed on properties that include hills is called rakability. If a fence is not rakable, it will leave gaps when going up or downhill. Most aluminum fence panels are rakable and can adjust to the slope of your property without much effort.

5. Aesthetics

Aluminum fencing provides you with a cost-effective and low-maintenance fencing option without sacrificing style. Aluminum fencing is available in a variety of styles to fit any landscape. Aluminum fences can also be more open and airy than many traditional fencing styles, giving you separation without looking like a wall cutting through your property.

2 Awesome Fence Building Projects That Add Real Value to Your Home

Building a fence for your home can be fun and give your home curb appeal or added value. Consider unique fence building projects that give you more than just a fence to enclose the backyard. Here are some of the fence building projects that you may want to consider getting for the most value from your investment in new fencing:

An Elegant Front Yard with an Affordable Aluminum Fence
If you want to have an elegant fence and security for the front of your home, give good thought to the materials you use. Fencing materials like wood can be great for privacy, but when it comes to front entrances, there are better materials like metal fencing. Rod iron gives an elegant look without hampering the view of the front of your home. If iron is too costly, modern aluminum fencing systems make a great affordable choice for this type of fencing to add value to your home.

Great Perfect Outdoor Living Spaces with Integrated Fencing Features
If you want to create the perfect outdoor living space, there are also many fencing features that can be integrated into these areas. Consider using features like fencing for privacy screens or to separate different areas of your landscaping. Wood is a great material for these projects, but other materials such as vinyl and metal are also a good choice.

These are some of the fence building projects that will give your home more value. Contact Allstar Fence and Deck for help with the installation of a new fence for your home.
