Benefits of a Residential Aluminum Fence

A residential aluminum fence has many benefits for your home.

A residential aluminum fence has many benefits for your home.

A residential aluminum fence will do more than just create a completed look to the landscape of your property; you’ll also benefit from several other advantages. If you have an existing fence and think it’s time for a change or if you’re doing renovations to your new property, put adding an aluminum fence on the top of your list.


It makes sense that you’d want to protect your home, property, belongings, and of course your family. But even while having this desire, you don’t want to create a fortress around your home or make it seem unapproachable and uninviting. Aluminum fencing provides the best of both worlds with security that remains inviting. Your fence can be built to any height allowed in your municipality, thwarting the attempts of potential burglars, and giving would-be intruders and extra layer that they’d need to bypass.  


It’s hard to argue the idea that adding a metal fence to your property will add a sense of sophistication and prestige. Many of these benefits that come with an aluminum fence will increase the value of your home and increase its curb appeal. You can even choose an ornamental style that better suits your personal style.

Economic Advantage

With aluminum, you get the same amount of aesthetic value as you would with wrought iron or steel, but at a lower cost. While wrought iron would cost up to $50 per foot for installation, aluminum costs up to $40 per foot. Also, when it comes to maintenance, you won’t see your dollar disappear to this factor either. Aluminum is virtually maintenance-free and won’t lose its luster the way that steel or wrought iron will.   

The Environmental Factor

Aluminum is a material that is 100 percent recyclable. It also won’t break down over time, which means that it can be continuously recycled for continuous use. Most aluminum fences are made with at least 70 percent recycled aluminum, making this option incredibly friendly to the environment.  


When most people think of aluminum, they imagine a solid, silver fence. However, with powder coated colors, you’ll have access to more than just the classic silver. Powder coating allows paint to stick to aluminum, which gives you the ability to choose between matte gray, sandstone, or even a shiny black look.
