If you're hesitating to go for aluminum fencing, you'll want to consider the various benefits!
Aluminum fencing is a popular choice among residential clients and homeowners compared to wrought iron fencing. Aluminum fencing is a more affordable solution since it is manufactured, rather than custom fabricated as wrought iron is.
Unlike ferric metals such as iron, aluminum does not rust since it doesn't contain enough iron for this reaction. However, aluminum can still oxidize. If you don't want to worry about your fence deteriorating due to ice and snow during the winter season, we recommend keeping and eye on it and re apply powder coating if you start to see it corrode. Typically you can expect the powder coating to last up to 20 years but may vary pending on conditions.
Unlike wrought iron fencing, our aluminum doesn't require annual painting, as it contains layers of protecting coating. It is easy to take care of and requires very little maintenance.
Keeping intruders out is a crucial function of aluminum fencing. While a trespasser can quickly jump over a wooden fence and chain link fences can be cut, the spearhead nature of aluminum fencing makes it nearly impossible to penetrate or breach.
Aluminum fencing works for nearly any property! You'll want to ensure that your fence falls in line with any compliances or regulations. You wouldn't want your fences to stick out like a sore thumb. Luckily, aluminum fencing blends in well with all types of surroundings.
Aluminum fencing has gained popularity in residential areas in Vancouver not only for its aesthetic appeal but also for its effectiveness at surrounding your yard or pool deck.
The open picket nature of the fencing allows for an unobstructed view of the pool area and will prevent animals and unwelcome guests from entering the pool area. Unlike wood fencing, aluminum fencing is impervious to all types of water, including chlorine-based pool water.
Aluminum fencing also looks great and adds value to your property. It's the perfect complement to your pool deck, particularly with smoothly poured concrete, outdoor furniture and more!

Steel is one of the most popular materials used for fencing due to its versatility and solid nature. When you enter an area with many large privately owned properties, you can often find steel fences covering the borders. Here are some of the advantages you can get as a homeowner when you use steel fences:
Steel fences are very durable as they are quite strong and can withstand harsh weather and corrosion if appropriately maintained. They are usually coated with a layer of zinc and are galvanized to enhance their durability even further.
As they are pretty strong, cutting or breaking through them without being noticed is quite hard. Also, typically these fences have pointed ends at the top, making it dangerous to jump over them. All this combined offer an outstanding level of security for your property.
One of the best things about steel fences is that they require low maintenance, both in cost and the time consumed (compared to wood fencing). To keep it shiny, good-looking and free of rust, you need to clean it with soapy water and a piece of cloth twice a year and repaint as required.
Many of our Surrey residents come to us for steel and aluminum fencing but are confused as to which option is the right fit for them. Deciding a better option among them isn't easy as they are both great but for different requirements. Here are a few points that might help you determine what's best for you:
A majority of people consider affordability to be a critical factor when deciding the materials for their fences. If you are one such person, aluminum is an excellent choice without compromising on security as steel is a bit costlier.
Both steel and aluminum are quite durable and rigid. Both are resistant to corrosion and can survive a lot of beatings from other factors if properly maintained. However, in comparison, steel will always have the upper hand as it is quite harder and doesn't get as damaged due to weather conditions.
Steel and aluminum are great materials for ornamental fences as they are very versatile. Steel fences offer a classy look like that of wrought iron fences. On the other hand, aluminum fences are far better if you are going for a modern design.
