Types of Metal Fences

When it comes to metal fencing, you have several options to choose from. Hamilton Fencing, in Columbus, Ohio, would like to provide you with a few options along with the advantages and disadvantages for when you are looking to add a metal fence for your home or business. Metal fencing has long been reliable, long lasting, attractive, and aside from stone, the strongest of traditional types of fencing. There are three main types of metal fencing: aluminum, wrought iron and chain link fences. All have their strong points and weak points, but any of them will be a great choice to use to build your fence.

aluminum fences columbus ohioAluminum Fencing: One of the strongest, most durable and maintenance free of your metal fencing choices is aluminum fencing. It is also very affordable, and installation is usually quick and easy. Most aluminum fencing is also almost as strong as steel so it also offers strength and security, but it is still aluminum so it will resist oxidation and will not rust. This offers a virtual lifetime of maintenance free service.

Aluminum fencing comes in primarily black and white, but can easily be painted to match any landscape or theme. As far as styles and designs go, there are literally hundreds of different styles, shapes and design combinations available to create your fence. The only real disadvantage is that aluminum is not quite as strong as wrought iron.

wrought iron fences columbus ohioWrought Iron: Wrought iron fencing is the strongest of all the metal fences and has been used for centuries for its elegance and beauty. Wrought iron fencing is the most ornate of all the metal fencing, and can be custom designed to any style or shape, which is why it has been used for so long. It is the most elegant looking, but aluminum does come very close.

Wrought iron fencing comes in black and white, but can be painted to match any type of landscaping or theme. Also, as with aluminum, wrought iron fencing comes in literally hundreds of different styles and combinations.

The only disadvantages to wrought iron are it is a metal, and although painted is susceptible to oxidation and rust, and does require periodic maintenance like sanding and painting. It is also the most expensive of the three options.

chain link fences columbus ohioChain Link Fencing: Chain link fences are of course nowhere near as elegant as aluminum or wrought iron fences, but they are very affordable, very functional, and provide years and years of service. They are easy to install and will add safety and security to your home or business. When you need an inexpensive, strong, secure fence, to keep children and pets in or to keep others out, a chain link fence system is always an excellent choice.

Chain link fencing, although not adding much in the way of beauty or looks, does add a solid boundary and good level of security to your home or business.

BENEFITS OF ALUMINUM FENCING

aluminum fences columbus ohioAluminum fencing is a common option for many fence applications but what are its benefits? We will be detailing the primary benefits of aluminum fences for your reference.

Cost: Aluminum fencing costs much less than traditional wrought iron fences. True wrought iron fencing must be fabricated in our shop with more expensive metal as compared to aluminum fences that are manufactured.

No Rust: Aluminum does not rust like iron, which is classified as a ferric metal which will oxidize and rust. Aluminum is not a ferric metal and will not rust. It’s estimated that aluminum can take over 10,000 years to disintegrate.

Low Maintenance: Unlike wrought iron fencing, aluminum will not need to be painted every few years. When manufactured, our aluminum fencing receives multiple protective coats including a powder paint coating that will last without needing to be repainted. With wood fences, you will need to maintain the wood on an annual basis to maintain the appearance and durability.

Esthetics: Aluminum fencing provides low maintenance containment and security while looking great. Black metal fencing blends with almost all landscapes and is available in a variety of styles.

Warranty: Our aluminum fences come with a lifetime manufactures warranty.
