Metal fence installations are a broad category as there are different material types within metal.
This can be seen as a luxury option as it is relatively more expensive but can create some of the most beautiful fences. Wrought iron fences are extremely durable and rarely require a replacement if they are properly installed by a fence contractor. It does require some careful and regular maintenance to make sure the metal doesn't corrode. Depending on the type of coating, maintenance time can significantly decrease as coatings can help the wrought iron withstand the elements and humidity.
A lot of metal fences now a days are advertised as wrought iron but are actually made of solid steel. It is a more affordable option compared to wrought iron and can give you a similar look. It's an excellent option to provide security for your property. It creates a visual barrier that delineates your property and provides a visual barrier as well. Modern day steel fences can stand the test of time and will last for many many years.
Tubular steel is a less expensive option compared to solid steel. It is a lighter weight option that can be galvanized for added protection. This type of steel can be exposed to rust if the galvanized outer layer is scratched and moisture is able to penetrate through. This type of fence is excellent as a pool fence, sectioning off gardens, or as a decorative barrier in front of your home.
Tubular aluminum has become a very popular material in modern times as it is lightweight and one of the more affordable materials. It is naturally resistant to rusting and typically comes with a powder-coated finish. The material is easy to work and can be a great choice for homes. It does lack some durability when it compares to wrought iron or steel so just be mindful of the setting when you are installing aluminum fences. If you are a business or in a commercial setting where security is a priority, we would recommend going with a different material.
