5 Reasons Why Aluminum Fencing is the Right Choice for Your Home or Business

Aluminum fences have been gaining popularity over the past 10-15 years. Many businesses, homeowners, and residential communities are installing aluminum fences due to their affordability, elegant designs, and high durability. Aluminum fencing also requires minimal maintenance and can be made of recycled aluminum.

It’s easy to see why so many property owners are installing aluminum fences in 2023. Many HOAs even require aluminum fences due to their numerous benefits and uniformity. 

Below we highlight seven reasons aluminum fencing may be the best decision for your home or business.


The benefits of an aluminum fence start for many customers with its affordability. Aluminum fencing requires less material than other metal fences like steel, making it cheaper to manufacture and lighter overall, reducing transportation and installation costs. Compared to other fencing materials like wood, aluminum requires far less maintenance. While the initial cost for an aluminum fence may be more than a wood or chain link fence, aluminum lasts much longer and costs very little to maintain, saving you money in the long run. 


If you’re looking to protect your home, family, employees, or business from thieves or wild animals, you’ve likely wondered about the security benefits of an aluminum fence. Aluminum fences are much tougher to scale than chain link or wood fencing. Aluminum fences can’t be clipped, and are often fashioned with spikes or rounded pickets to deter unwelcomed guests.


A well-built aluminum fence can last a lifetime, seriously! Aluminum fences can easily last over 50+ but often last even longer. Aluminum doesn’t rust, fade, or rot and holds up extremely well to severe weather conditions. Termites and ants also don’t pose any threats to aluminum fences. 


Ornamental and security aluminum fences come in an array of styles, heights, and colors to complement any home or business. Whether you’re seeking an elegant look or opting for a more modern-styled fence, it’s unlikely you won’t find a style you like. Our fencing installation experts at Florida Fence Products also manufacture and construct a variety of custom aluminum gates that help further secure your home or business.


While not a word you’ll find in Webster’s dictionary, rackability refers to a fence’s ability to follow the land’s topography on both inclines and declines. To accommodate drops or raises in elevation, the fence rails of the panels are adjusted to sit parallel with the ground. A professionally installed racked fence should not have any gaps below the pickets and should look uniform with one continuous top. Aluminum racked fencing is ideal for uneven terrain and is much easier to install than other types of racked fencing.

Low Maintenance

As mentioned, aluminum fencing requires very little maintenance. Unless your aluminum fence suffers damage from a fallen tree branch or gets hit by a vehicle, it’s unlikely you will need more than some water, a rag, and maybe some dish soap and vinegar to remove scuffs, marks, or unwanted grass clippings. During the manufacturing process, aluminum fences are powder coated, fusing the paint to the metal, preventing any chance of rust or paint chipping. This means aluminum fences never need to be repainted, stained, or sealed like wood or wrought iron fencing. 


Aluminum can be recycled time and time again, and the same applies to aluminum fences. There are a variety of aluminum fence options built to be easily recycled should you or a future property owner ever need to remove and dispose of your fence. Many distributors and fence installers also carry aluminum fences that are made from recycled aluminum. These fences are in no way compromised structurally or visually and last just as long as a nonrecycled aluminum fence.


The numerous benefits of an aluminum fence make it a popular candidate for many property owners seeking to install a perimeter fence. Since aluminum fences started popping up some 10 or 15 years ago in the US, more and more homeowners and businesses are considering their benefits. Its high durability, long lifespan, rackability, and recyclability are just a few reasons we recommend aluminum fencing to many central Florida clients of ours.
