When it comes to choosing the right material for your fence, there are several factors to consider. Durability, maintenance, aesthetics, and cost all play a role in this decision. Among the various material options available in the market, aluminum stands out as an excellent choice for many homeowners. The rails and posts for all Greenwood Fences are made of Aluminum, and for good reason. Read on to learn more!
The Durability of Aluminum
One of the primary reasons we selected aluminum for our fence “bones” is its durability. Unlike wood or iron that can rot or rust over time, aluminum is highly resistant (if not impervious) to these elements. It can withstand harsh weather conditions including rain, snow, and intense heat without losing its structural integrity or aesthetic appeal. Steel and iron will rust over time, making them hard to care for and, eventually, structurally unsound.
Aluminum fence parts are also bullet proof to pests like termites that can cause significant damage to wooden fences.
Lastly, they do not warp or bend easily which can happen with wood and some softer metals. This makes them ideal for properties with uneven landscapes.
Low Maintenance Requirements
Another advantage of choosing a fence with aluminum parts over other materials is its low maintenance requirements. Once installed, you don’t have to worry about regular painting or staining as you would with a wooden fence. Steel and iron fences also require regular coats of pant to curb rusting.
Cleaning an aluminum fence is also quite straightforward – all you need is soapy water and a soft brush to keep it looking new. This ease of maintenance saves homeowners time and money in the long run.
When compared to other fencing materials like iron or wood, aluminum is relatively more cost-effective. The initial cost of aluminum might be higher, but when you factor in the low maintenance costs and long lifespan, it becomes a better economical choice in the long run. No painting, no replacing, no problems.
Aluminum Paired with Composite Fence Boards
With all the amazing benefits to aluminum fence parts, it’s a no brainer to use it in the framing of our high quality composite fence boards. Put the two together and you have a fence that will last decades, possibly generations!
Choose Greenwood Quality
Greenwood Fence Aluminum is Qualicoat Certified. The certification process involves rigorous testing and inspection to verify that the coating process and the final product meet the Qualicoat standards. Achieving this certification indicates that the manufacturer is committed to producing a high-quality product that offers long-term value. It’s a mark of reliability for architects and specifiers who need to ensure they are choosing the best materials for their projects.
Choosing the right materials for your fence can be a hard choice, but when you start with the best materials for the job, your project will always turn out better and last longer. This is why more and more contractors are leaving wood and steel behind. With composite + aluminum they can stand behind their work for (almost) a lifetime without worry of having to repair a job that was already done.
If you’re looking for a durable, low-maintenance option that offers aesthetic appeal and cost-effectiveness, a Greenwood Composite Fence could be the ideal choice for you.
