Aluminum has been taking the fencing industry by storm, with good reason. This material has proven over how well it can stand up to the elements and everyday wear and tear. Even with it being so popular, there are still misconceptions when it some to using aluminum fencing such as it’s not strong enough, it doesn’t look nice, it’s hard to install, and more. We’re here to put all of those misconceptions to rest!
"It's low quality"
While aluminum is more affordable than other fencing materials, it doesn't mean it's low quality. The reason for the price tag is because it's easier to obtain as opposed to other materials. You can also reuse aluminum over and over again without any harm to the makeup of it. All of this contributes to its affordable price.
"It doesn't look like iron or steel."
At its natural state, it doesn't resemble iron or steel, but it's so easy to form it into any shape. It can easily mimic any material and style.
"It won't last."
On the contrary, aluminum is one of the longest-lasting materials out there with very little maintenance. The biggest things an aluminum fence needs is a good cleaning once a year. Aluminum never rusts!
"It's hard to dispose of."
As mentioned before, aluminum is recyclable and can be reused over and over again. Some places even pay for the aluminum putting money in your pocket.
"It's hard to install."
Other fencing needs to have special equipment to install. With aluminum fences, all you need is basic tools to get everything secured. Your fence is up within a fraction of what it takes to put up other fences.
