Our Guide to Aluminum Fences and Gates

August 15, 2018

How sturdy will your fence be against elements like wind? How long does it need to last? What’s your fencing budget? There are plenty of options for fencing materials readily available for any residential or commercial job. It’s just a matter of answering the right questions. Aluminum fencing can work within any budget, survive a wide array of elemental abuse, and provides a beautiful, modern look that’s certain to turn heads. 

How much does it cost to put in an aluminum fence?

Wood is an obvious choice for fencing. But in eastern North Carolina, wooden fences would be lucky to survive a single hurricane season. The sticker price of a wooden fence may be appealing, but you be looking at repairs and maintenance costs very soon down the road. Building a fence with reliable, strong materials is worth the initial cost. 

What do aluminum fences look like? 

Aluminum is a unique choice for fences, providing a modern and stylish look. But there are multiple options for aluminum fencing and barriers. Take a look at our work at Moonraker’s Restaurant on the Beaufort waterfront.

You can also choose to finish your fence in a variety of styles. Like most metals, aluminum comes with the possibility for a variety of finishes. You can also add details like a beautiful driveway gate as an accent. Like the rest of your aluminum fence, it’s practically maintenance-free, lightweight, safe, and most of all, cost-effective. 

How do aluminum fences provide an extra layer of security?

When it comes to securing commercial spaces, aluminum fences are a more professional and appealing choice over chain link fences. And unlike chain link, certain styles of aluminum fencing are unclimbable. It’s your best choice for keeping out unwanted guests after hours without sacrificing your budget or your style of choice. 

If privacy is important to your commercial space, such as in attorney’s or doctor’s offices. Fences don’t necessarily have to be solid to provide that level of discretion. Slatted aluminum fences provide a lightweight, durable, and low-maintenance option for private offices.
