Contractors have used metal fencing for centuries, but why might you use metal to construct a fence around your Atlanta home?
Aside from stone, a metal fence will generate longer pedigree than most any other fence style you select for your Atlanta yard. Metal or wrought iron fences are not only stylistically pleasing and classy, but also provide a level of security that cannot always be achieved with other fence materials.
Today, most wrought-iron fences in Atlanta are actually aluminum, steel, composites or polymer since these materials are lighter, less expensive and much easier to work with than pure wrought iron. Metal fences can be quickly constructed, require low maintenance, and look good in a variety of forms. Since metal is quite malleable, the material also allows you to get creative when designing your Atlanta fence.
A metal fence provides excellent support against intruders since such fences dissuade intruders without blocking them from view if they are able to break into your Atlanta yard. Also, metal fences permit strong gates, latches and hinges that better secure the gated portion of your Atlanta fence where most home invasions tend to occur.
While metal fences (particularly wrought iron) are sometimes pricy, Atlanta residents who desire metal can look to aluminum, steel, or chain-link fencing for a more cost-efficient alternative.
- If you want to ensure fence longevity while avoiding extensive upkeep, aluminum is a great choice for your Atlanta home. Aluminum not only serves as a lightweight, inexpensive material that never rusts, but can also be molded to resemble fancy wrought iron designs.
- Steel also provides Atlanta residents with a great way to combine strength and superior design. Steel offers clean lines and high-security, though the material does rust when compared to aluminum fencing.
- Finally, chain-link fencing can compliment most any edifice if constructed in a tasteful manner. Play around with gauges, mesh sizes and PVC coatings to dress up your chain-link fence.
