Are you considering contacting a fencing contractor about a new fence? There are so many types of fences to choose from. How do you know which one is right for you? In this video, you will learn about the differences between iron and aluminum fences.
One of the big differences between aluminum and iron fences is maintenance. Iron fences will rust over time.
There are some things you can do to help lessen the effect of rust, but it is inevitable. On the other hand, aluminum fences do not rust and won’t require the associated maintenance. Even so, iron is the stronger material by far. Even a lighter iron fence will be stronger than a heavier aluminum fence. This strength also makes iron fences the more secure option.
As far as looks go, iron and aluminum fences look very similar. Although, you may find that you like one over the other. Both are also easy to install. Overall, there are reasons to choose either of the fences. It really depends on your specific situation. Lastly, it is also important to note that aluminum fences are going to be more expensive.
