Iron Fences

Do you need an iron fence or aluminum fence to meet your residential property requirements? If yes, it’s time to get familiar with these residential fences. What are the similarities? What are the differences? We are here to help you learn about iron and aluminum fences. We are here to help you make the right choice for your home.

On a visual appeal level, iron fencing and aluminum fencing resemble each other in structure. The main visual difference between the two fence types is the look of the horizontal rail.

For iron fence products you will notice the fence structure includes welded panels and gates. The iron fence is a welded fence so it can offer high security and strength for homeowners. Iron fences are galvanized fences to prevent rust/corrosion. Your iron fence will include a powder coated finish to prevent fading as well.

What can you expect from an aluminum fence? You will notice that the durability of the fence relies on the horizontal rail and having detailed aluminum fence panels. This is how the fence integrity is best kept. We add a powder coat finish to keep the color of your aluminum fence from fading. But is it better to purchase an iron fence or an aluminum fence for your residential project?

Well, if you want a fence that looks like iron without the necessary maintenance, always go for an aluminum fence. By purchasing an aluminum fence, you will have a no maintenance fence for your home that comes with a lifetime warranty. You will not have to sacrifice the classic look of an iron fence when your aluminum fence is installed. All aluminum fence panels from Hercules Fence are designed to look like authentic iron panels.

No matter if you select an iron fence or an aluminum fence, you will have a great looking residential fence that’s very functional. We use superior fence materials to make sure you have a secure, strong and very durable residential fence.
