Uncovering Myths About Aluminum Fences

Today we are breaking down some of the most common myths about aluminum fences.

Aluminum fences are some of the most durable, flexible, and popular options on the market today. While many homeowners and business owners love aluminum fences for all of those reasons, there are still many lingering myths about aluminum. Are aluminum fences really all that they are cracked up to be? Today we are breaking down some of the most common myths about aluminum fences.

Aluminum Fences Rust

Like other aluminum products are known for rusting over time, many people assume that these fences will rust. However, aluminum fences will never rust in your yard. These fences are made of a thicker material and coated for protection, so they will never start to rust and look unattractive in your yard. If you purchase a commercial or industrial aluminum fence, the material will be even thicker and more durable.

Aluminum Fences Need a Lot of TLC

Unlike wooden fences that require constant maintenance and proactive treatments, aluminum fences are virtually maintenance free. They are powder coated before installation, so that you don’t need to worry about frequently cleaning and caring for the fence. Powder coating is also one of the primary defenses between rust and your aluminum fence. The only time you will need to maintain your aluminum fence is once a season. Take the time to rinse it off and remove any dirt and debris from the surface. It’s uncommon for aluminum fences to have dents and damage, but if you spot any you can have it repaired by Hercules Custom Iron.

Aluminum Fences Look the Same

Our last myth is that aluminum fences all look the same, which couldn’t be any more different from the truth. Aluminum fences are highly customizable and can be manufactured in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. While many consumers choose the same varieties of aluminum fences, there are countless options available for you to choose from.
