Aluminum vs. Steel Fencing

When it comes to material selection for your new fence, you'll find yourself faced with the aluminum or steel question. Aluminum has several advantages over steel as a fence material:

  • Corrosion Resistance: Aluminum fencing, especially with powder-coating, is exceptionally resistant to fading, rusting and corrosion from the elements. Steel fencing will deteriorate over time.

  • Aesthetics: Aluminum fencing is connected to punched posts for a seamless appearance. Steel fence panels are connected to posts with unsightly brackets.

  • Strength: Aluminum has an excellent strength to weight ratio compared to steel, which requires much greater weight for the same strength.

  • Weight: With its lighter weight 1/3 that of steel, aluminum fences put less stress on swing gates, hinges and gate operators. This contributes to the longevity of the fence.
