ALUMINUM FENCING WARRANTY
What is the aluminum fencing warranty? What does it cover? How long does it last? What are the differences in the major manufacturers warranty? When you are purchasing an aluminum fence, go look at some reference projects of your contractor and see the current fencing (less than a year old) and older projects (5 – 10 years old) and you will actually see how well the fencing holds up! Once you are satisfied with the manufactured product, then you need to choose your contractor (how to find a quality fence contractor).
Aluminum fence warranty?
Everyone covers aluminum fencing to not rust! Why is that? Physically speaking, ALUMINUM CANNOT RUST! Great warranty because we know it cannot happen. Sounds great, all companies warranty this, but the fact is, ALUMINUM CANNOT RUST. Remember the old mill finish (silver color) of your parents aluminum screen door in the 1960’s and 1970’s? These aluminum screen doors could have a color (powder coated) or the mill finish (color from the aluminum plant silver with no paint). Now the mill finish could pit and corrode but never oxidize (rust) because ALUMINUM CANNOT RUST.
Powder Coating Paint?
Powder coating was developed years ago, a system of heating the paint and covering the aluminum bonding the paint to the aluminum. Great system and that is why EVERY MANUFACTURER HAS A LIFETIME PAINT WARRANTY!
They may call it powder coat, jell coat,fenc coat, paint coat but basically the industry standard painting is the same system for bonding paint to the aluminum for a long life. Most aluminum fence warranty will cover a lifetime on the original owner and is not transferable. I think this has more to do with tracking the product by consumer name and is a paperwork issue. The paint job should last 50+ years because the technology is there and prevalent.
Quality of the Paint?
As long as you are using American made aluminum fencing products ( made in America, not made in China or made in China and assembled in America) you can feel comfortable of the safety of the paint (lead base paint, filler in paint).
