Aluminum offers the beauty of traditional wrought iron fencing without the maintenance. Although not recommended for areas with severe weather, it is ideal for those who value a lightweight fence that is easy to install. It works well for a yard that is hilly or sloped, and is also commonly used around a pool.
Wrought iron is the top choice if you value both strength and beauty. Being heavy and all-welded, wrought iron offers security and durability for your peace of mind. To maintain its beauty however, it usually needs to be sanded or repainted every two to three years.
