Fences play an important role in providing security and privacy to our homes. Choosing the right fencing will also help enhance your exterior home’s aesthetics.
But there are multiple options, with each having an edge in one aspect or the other. Metal fencing for example, is a common option for both residential and commercial properties since it is stable, available as well as affordable.
Here are three metal fencing options you can consider for your property in 2021:
- Aluminum fencing
Aluminum is one of the most attractive fencing options. It is mostly preferred by homeowners because of its ease of maintenance. In fact, the only maintenance that you may require will be repainting. One thing you may notice though, is that it is not as sturdy as the other metal fencing options. But for some new aluminum fences today, rivet systems have been added to add more strength.
- Iron fencing
In residential fencing, this is the most common type of metal fencing. They are of two different types; wrought iron and molded iron. Their differences are in the process in which they are made. Wrought iron is made by hand while molded iron is heated into liquid form then poured into molds to set.
Iron fences are beautiful and strong, and for maintenance purposes they need to be sanded or painted to keep them from rusting. Iron fencing can however be a bit expensive.
- Chain link fencing
This is the most affordable out of the three and it works well as a security fence. This metal fencing is made from galvanized steel and it must be coated with zinc to prevent rusting. Chain link fences are easy to install, they are low maintenance but they do not offer privacy.
Besides metal fencing, there are other fencing options to choose from. You can incorporate two different combinations of fencing for your yard. For the best combination, consult with your local professional for the best way to go.
