Metal Fence Installation Burnaby
Metal fencing is the most durable fencing option due to its natural strength. It is commonly used for high end security purposes but can also be used in a decorative fashion which is referred to as ornamental fences. Metal creates a very unique aesthetic and creates a certain grandeur to any property after installation. It provides a classic look but can also fit modern design schemes depending on the type of style you choose. While your typical metal fence doesn't provide the best privacy due to spacing between the rails, there are privacy options as well.
Metal fences have a wide spectrum as there are different types of metals and designs to choose from.
Wrought iron is the luxury option as it is typically the most expensive material. The cost lives up to the name as it can create some of the most beautiful fences out there. The material itself is extremely durable and will rarely require replacement if installed by a proper fence contractor. Some maintenance is required to ensure the metal doesn't corrode. Depending on the type of coating on the metal maintenance time can decrease significantly as coatings can help withstand the elements and humidity.
Many metal fences in recent times are advertised to be wrought iron but are actually made of solid steel. Solid steel is a more affordable option compared to wrought iron and provides a similar look. It is a great choice for security on any type of property. A no nonsense barrier the delineates your property from others can be created with solid steel. Modern day steel fences will stand the test of time and will last you for years to come.
An alternative to solid steel is the less expensive tubular steel. It is a comparatively lighter weight option that can be galvanized for an added layer of protection. Steel like this has risk of rust of the galvanized layer is scratched and moisture makes its way through. Tubular steel fences are commonly installed as pool fences, sectioning off gardens, or as a decorative barrier for your home.
In recent times, tubular aluminum has become a popular choice due its lightweight and relative costs. Aluminum is naturally resistant to rusting and typically comes with a powder-coated finish. It is a fairly easy material to work with and is a great choice for homes. It does lack the durability that the more solid metals have so that is something to keep in mind when installing a aluminum fence. If security is the number one priority, we recommend going with a stronger material.
