There are many types of materials used in fencing, and they each offer their own pros and cons. If you are thinking about having a fence installed but you aren't quite sure which material will be the best option for your home or business, then read on to learn more about the differences between two popular metal fence materials or contact the professionals at Hurricane Fence Company!

Steel Fences

Steel fences can be used for both residential and commercial applications as they provide a durable perimeter while protecting your property. In fact, steel is a very effective fence material as it can withstand the test of time, even in heavy rain, snow, or wind.

However, steel fences do have some downsides to consider. As with any steel object, steel fences can rust over time if not periodically treated. This means that there is some maintenance required with steel fencing if you want it to last longer.

Aluminum Fences

Aluminum fences can also be a great option for homeowners and business owners alike. If you're looking for a fencing material that is lightweight, versatile, and won't rust, aluminum might be what you are searching for. If you want to further increase the longevity of your fence, you can opt for a coated aluminum for enhanced strength.

On the other hand, aluminum fencing is not as strong as other materials, like steel. While Aluminum can withstand the elements, it is not a great option if security is your main priority.
