Aluminum Fencing Aluminum fencing, also an ornamental fence, is very similar to iron fencing but offers heightened durability and little or no maintenance. Modern ornamental fences are either hybrids, utilizing both steel and aluminum, or solely aluminum. Aluminum fences are powder-coated for longevity and use brackets as post-to-rail connectors. This avoids the fragile, rust-prone welds so common with conventional wrought iron fences. Styles and designs for aluminum fencing include a growing range of colors, including black, white, bronze, and even green. Similar to chain link fencing, aluminum fences come in different picket, post, and rail sizes. These differences will determine the strength of the fence. For aluminum, the larger the picket, the stronger the fence. Aluminum fences are much cheaper than iron fences because they are much easier to install. On a broader scale, aluminum typically falls somewhere between vinyl and wood fencing in terms of cost.
Types of Fences When installing fences in ones yard, there are many types that one can choose from. Fences that are made from timber are by far, are arguably the most popular ones. These are quite cheap, versatile and come in different shapes and sizes. These are also preferred by some buyers because they are environment-friendly. However, timber can rot and some types of timber fences are no-good in terms of quality. Modern houses usually have brick or cement fences. Brick fences are popular because of their sturdiness and durability. The colors selection is also endless. These, however, are more expensive than timber fences. There are also steel fences which are lightweight and quite strong. Steel fences can, however, make irritating noise, especially if its windy or rainy. There are also stone fences and those which are made from natural materials such as bamboo, cane and reed.
Metal Hoarding- This option is best used if you intend to secure a site for a longer time. Initially, these fences cost a higher price and they are not only permanent than its wooden counterpart but also can be reused, if needed. Like wooden hoardings, the metal hoardings can also be painted in the desired colour and can be customised to provide additional security measures, such as barbed wires. These fences are highly durable and comparatively stays strong for a larger period of time.
Strength and Durability Again, different materials vary in terms of strength and durability. Brick, stone and steel fences are to be installed by homeowners who would prefer stability than design and appearance. Make sure that the not-so-strong fences such as timber and bamboo fences are protected from vines. Vines may not seem harmful to fences but they are actually one of the reasons why fences break down. They drag the fences down through their weight.
