There are several benefits to getting your yard fenced-in. Asides from the fact that fencing your yard have some aesthetic significance, it also improves the safety and privacy of your property. Fencing your yard will also provide a safe space for your kids to play and allow your fence to roam freely. Whether you are installing a new fence or you are looking to replace an existing fence, a metal fence is one of the top fencing options to consider.
Types Of Metal Fencing Materials
There are different types of metal fencing materials to choose from each with its specific pros and cons. Iron is one of the oldest known materials for fencing and although it is not popular as a fencing material as it used to be, iron is still much loved by many because it is strong and durable. Iron also adds a touch of sophistication to your property but can be very difficult to work with because of how heavy it is. Aluminum on the other hand is very lightweight and quite easy to install. It is also considered one of the most-friendly fencing materials. But it is not as durable as iron. The third type of metal fencing material is steel. Steel is well-known for its strength and durability. Steel fences tend to be very sturdy with minimal maintenance required.
Metal is Flexible
Metal is a very flexible fencing material which is another factor that accounts for its popularity. Metals can be designed to achieve pretty much any look. You have your steel or aluminum fence installed in a way that resembles classic wrought iron fencing or ornamental fences of time past. This flexibility also makes the metal very easy to work with to achieve beautiful aesthetics. We can also powder-coat your metal fencing to give it the desired finish and further improve its durability.
Rust Is Not a Problem
One of the common misconceptions with metal fencing is that they are prone to rust. But contrary to popular belief, rust is not a major problem with metal fences. Although steel can be quite susceptible to rust in its natural state, it is rarely used in this state. Finished steel can last for up to 2 decades without suffering rust. Aluminum fences are practically rust-resistant as well. They can last for several decades and the last thing you have to worry about is rust. This makes aluminum fences perfect even when you live in an area with high humidity or exposure to salt spray which is a common cause of rust.
another common concern with metal fencing is its impact on the environment. While steel and aluminum are not your typical “green” material, they are still quite recyclable. Metals are used in various industries so if you ever decide to discard your old iron fencing, you don’t have to bother about an adverse impact on your environment since the discarded material can be recycled for other industrial applications.
