Top 5 Benefits of Having Decorative Aluminum Fencing Installed

No unsightly rust

There are no worries about your fencing ever becoming unsightly over time like iron fencing. Aluminum will not rust, unlike traditional iron fencing that will over time begin to rust. It will also never rot unlike fences made from treated wood.

More cost effective

Aluminum fencing is a much cheaper alternative to wrought iron when it comes to decorative fencing. When you consider the cost-effectiveness of purchasing wholesale aluminum fence panels, posts, and gates over the those made from wrought iron, you are likely to make the right decision.

Improves curb appeal

Aluminum fencing is one of the more versatile of the many types of decorative style fencing. It can be found in a number of different types of finishes, colors, and styles. There really is no worries about whether or not the final result will look gaudy or cheap. It can even increase the overall curb appeal of your home and property, which in turn will help to add to the value of your property.

Flexible enough to fit in with most landscaping

Today’s aluminum fencing can be manufactured in a number of different styles in order to be able to fit in with a wide range of landscaping and terrain. It also can be tailored to fit in with a wider range of changes in elevation due to the material that is used to construct it. There is far less likely that there will be unacceptable gaps between the ground and the bottom of the fence.

High degree of security

While both wooden fencing and chain link fencing each have their own pluses and minuses when it comes to security. Neither one can provide a high level of security and still look amazingly good. Aluminum fencing is made using the highest quality materials and processes that result in the most beautiful looking fence that will quite possibly outlast the house it surrounds.

6 Ways Aluminum Gates and Fencing Help to Keep Your Home and Family Safe

Of course, you want to keep your family safe, which is why it’s a good idea to invest in the installation of an aluminum fence and driveway gate. Your home will not only feel safer, it will be safer.  Your family pets and small children will be able to freely play throughout the yard without the constant worry about them leaving the property or someone entering that shouldn’t. Aluminum fencing and gates help to protect your home and loved ones from the vulnerabilities that exist outdoors.

There are several reasons that homeowners choose to install an aluminum perimeter fence and driveway gate.  Some of those include:

Enclosure for Young Children

As mentioned above the installation of an aluminum fence makes it virtually impossible for them to leave the backyard.  With the fence installed they will be able to freely roam outside while giving you some peace of mind that they are safe.  Most parents don’t mean to intentionally leave their children outside playing alone but occasionally we all run into the house for a drink or to rush to another child to the bathroom.  It is in those split seconds when children are most likely to venture away.  An aluminum fence prevents this.

Pet Enclosure

Just like children, pets are easily contained with an aluminum perimeter fence.  One option in aluminum fencing is puppy pickets, which are extra aluminum pickets added to the bottom of the fence to prevent even the smallest of pets from escaping under the fence.  Another benefit found in aluminum fencing when it comes to pet containment is that the aluminum fence panels, no matter what decorative style or color you choose from, can be ordered at varying heights.  If your dog is a fence Houdini, then you can easily order a taller fence making it virtually unescapable.

Keeping Intruders Out

An aluminum driveway gate is the best option in preventing unwanted visitors.  A closed gate eliminates the possibility of entry without the expressed desire of the homeowner.   Driveway gates are incredibly strong, durable, and safe.  Once installed homeowners can consider automatic controls to allow easy opening and closing of the gate with the touch of a button.

Prevent Backyard Exposure

Although most aluminum fencing is a style of fence referred to as picket, it still offers a distorted view of the activities behind them.  With a fence installed you lessen the intrusion of noisy neighbors and give yourself more privacy then you would have without one installed.

Prevent Easy Access

Thieves are looking for easy targets when they set out to rob a home.  A home equipped with a driveway gate and perimeter fence are not easy targets.  These obstacles help detour intruders for easier targets.

Gates Lock

Whether you install a driveway gate or an aluminum walkway gate it is important to note that it can come with hardware that allows the fence to be self-locking and self-latching.  Most often seen as an important feature in aluminum pool gates this is also an ideal option for walkway gates when a home has small children or pets as they can easily nudge past a fence that is left unsecured.

No matter how you look at it the purchase of a perimeter fence and driveway gate is never a waste. When is comes to the installation of aluminum fencing it is important to note that this expense is virtually always recouped in the sale of the house.  Which is a win-win situation for you as a homeowner.

Many local communities also have regulations regarding swimming pool fencing.  All swimming pools, above and below ground, are required to have a protective barrier installed.  The barrier must be at least forty-eight inches tall and be clear of elements around it that would allow someone to get over the fence.

Preventing Possible Accidents From Occuring

Installing an aluminum fence around your pool area also helps prevent people from accessing the pool area unsupervised.  Both children, pets, and outsiders will be kept from accessing the swimming pool without an adult and help prevent potential accidents from happening in your yard.

Of course, as we have previously discussed, the fencing will help keep your family and friends safe.  The fence will ensure that children aren’t able to access the water unsupervised.  It offers homeowners an extra feeling of reassurance.  Not only does it protect your children from getting into the pool area it also keeps animals from accessing the space.  Choose an aluminum fence that is over forty-eight inches tall and aluminum gates that have self-closing and self-latching hardware.

Adding Beauty To Your Pool

Aluminum fencing is also an aesthetically pleasing addition to the swimming pool area.  A lot of homeowners worry that installing a fence around the swimming pool will distract from the beauty of the pool area.  However, installing an aluminum fence can add to the attractiveness of the area.  There are many colors, styles, and options of aluminum fencing to choose from.  It doesn’t hurt that aluminum fences are easy to maintain and extremely durable.

5 Ways Aluminum Fencing Secures Your Swimming Pool

While having a swimming pool in the backyard is a wonderful addition to a home, not only for families to enjoy during hot summers, but to also increase the value of a property, this wonderful addition poses a variety of hazards. According to the National Swimming Pool Foundation, there are more than 200 reported accidental drownings each year, which why homeowners are implored to make swimming pool safety a priority, especially where there are unsupervised children and pets around the home.

A lot of weight has been placed on regulating and enforcing swimming pool fence requirements, which has saved many lives and ornamental aluminum pool fence is the most popular type of fence option particularly due to its durability and low maintenance properties.

  • Provides a sturdy connection

Aluminum pool fencing installation can be complete by homeowners looking for DYI and takes little to no time to put together, which begs the question; are aluminum fences sturdy enough that they won’t collapse? Is the fence loosely fitted and flimsy-looking?  Can a child or dog can knock it over? An aluminum pool fence requires surface mount posts or factory-welded flanges to mount it on after boring holes on the concrete around the swimming pool areas then re-cementing the poles. This installation process is what makes an aluminum swimming pool fence very strong and the best fence option to secure swimming pool areas.

  • Relatively conspicuous

When choosing a suitable fence for a swimming pool area, among the many things it should provide is visibility. Unlike other pool fence types such as vinyl or wood, an aluminum swimming pool fence is quite visible even in the dark and from afar.

  • Multiple applications

Choosing a fence for your property is a big decision and not only should you consider the security and aesthetics part, but a fence should also fit multiple functions. Aluminum fences are very strong and durable, and they fit in with any area and terrain.  This makes them ideal for homes or larger establishes to mark property lines and provide security.  Aluminum gates are also the best in that they come with self-closing and self-latching hardware making them

  • Design

Although an aluminum swimming pool fence has an open design, the spaces in between are small, which ensures that children or pets can’t squeeze between the poles to go into the pool area. The height of a swimming pool fence is equally important and a fence that’s being installed around a pool must meet with the state and local ordinances. Pool fences need to be high enough to keep people, especially kids, from climbing over and aluminum fences can be designed to meet the height safety requirements for a swimming pool fence.

  • Ground clearance and locking mechanism

The space between the bottom of a pool fence and the ground should be very small to keep children from crawling underneath or getting stuck in between. An aluminum pool gate should also be equipped with mechanically self-closing hinges and a reliable latch that automatically engages to secure your swimming pool area.

Tips to Care for Your Aluminum Fence

The exterior of your home, your homes curb appeal reflects a great deal on how your home is viewed overall.  Many homeowners look for ways in which to spruce up the exterior of their home.  One way that this can be achieved is with the installation of a new aluminum fence.  Not only does an aluminum fence increase the aesthetics of the property it increases safety while increasing the homes overall value.

Aluminum fence panels are created from a corrosion resisting property which allows it to last longer than other fence materials.  Even with its corrosion resisting nature, aluminum fences like everything in the world require routine maintenance. Below are a few tips for ways you maintain your aluminum fence better for long-lasting results.

Regular Washing

Fences being out in the open are prone to the building up of dirt, mud, grass, mold, and unwanted growth if left unmaintained. Because of this very reason as a basic cleaning ritual, it is advised to use a pressure hose regularly on your fence to remove any sort of accumulated debris that might cause damage to it.

Routine Levelling Check

A routine checkup of your aluminum fence is suggested to ensure leveling. It’s easier to check and devise leveling of your aluminum fence on a windy day if you see it swaying and tilting on one side because of the wind pressure then be sure to secure it as it appears to have loosened up.

Scratches and Chipping

Aluminum fences face scratches and chips that are easily maintained and should not present the issues that arise with other types of fence materials. Use some exterior touch up paint specific for aluminum fencing and it will be as good as new.  Other fencing materials such as wood require yearly staining or word protection to keep it looking as good as it does when it is first installed however this is not the case with aluminum fencing.

Avoid Chemicals

Aluminum fencing is powder coated and therefore when maintaining them it is important not to use harsh chemicals.  Most household cleansers, abrasive chemicals, harsh agents, acidic solvents, steel wool, and industrial type cleansers should be avoided.
