Installing New Fencing

Hello, my name is Barry and this is my new fencing blog. Until a couple of years ago, I didn't think twice about fencing. I truly believed that there were only a couple of types of fence and that they all more or less did the same job. But boy was I wrong. When my brother-in-law Stan came to visit me, he explained that he had recently retrained as a fencing contractor and that he would be willing to do some work on my yard. I helped him to install a new glass fence around the pool and a lovely wooden picket around the exterior of my home. I hope you enjoy my blog.

Benefits of Metal Fencing for a Home Front Yard

The front fence around a home impacts both its aesthetics and security. You'll find that different materials can be formed into barriers. One popular choice is metal — the benefits of which follow.

Style Options

Metal fencing offers various styles to match diverse architectures. One option is aluminium slat models, which consist of numerous horizontal slats. The spaces between the slats can set as wide or narrow as you wish, depending on your desired privacy level.

Another possibility is a tubular metal fence, which comes in steel and aluminium versions. The hollow pipe railings generate an elegant and classic look. You can choose a fence full of circles and ornate scrolls or a straightforward design, whichever you prefer.

Chain wire mesh can also encompass a front garden. With only tiny diamond-shaped gaps in the webbing, these barriers contain pets securely, so you won't have to worry about them squeezing through. You could install silver steel wire mesh. Alternatively, connect a wire mesh covered in green, brown, or black PVC. Green and brown evoke a rustic vibe, while black produces a smarter appearance.

Durable

Metal fences are highly durable and able to withstand all the elements. Aluminium naturally resists rust, making it ideal for a seaside property. Stainless steel can also escape rust. Other steel forms are covered in a protective zinc film, termed galvanized steel, or else treated with a shielding powder-coated paint layer. These protective coatings help the metal resist moisture and wind. A metal fence won't rot, warp, or suffer a termite infestation either, as a timber structure may.

Secure

Metal fences provide excellent security for a home, as you can choose the most appropriately constructed barrier for your property. Tubular metal fences with tall railings and spearhead tips are challenging to climb, and you can enhance these barriers by installing an electronic gate. Fencing contractors can make slat fences in varying heights, to keep out trespassers. Chain wire mesh forms sturdy walls built in various heights, from waist-high to several metres tall.

Recyclable

If you're trying to make your home greener, then metal is an excellent choice, as aluminium and steel are both recyclable. Your new fence may already contain a percentage of recycled metal. Plus, when the structure reaches the end of its life, you can recycle it again rather than dump it in a landfill. That way, you'll be helping rather than contributing to the excess-waste problem.
