Fencing Comparison Aluminum vs. Wood

Are you shopping around for the best fencing prices? We have set up an easy-to-read table to show you a fencing comparison between our most popular styles: Aluminum vs Wood fencing.

Aluminum Fencing

Aluminum fencing is an affordable fencing option, especially depending on the style of fence you choose. When compared to the price of wrought iron fencing, aluminum is a much more reasonable option. The benefits of aluminum fencing include the limited maintenance required to take care of your fence. Aluminum fencing is not subject to natural fibers like wood fencing, and therefore it does not warp, twist, crack, or rot. Aluminum is a durable fencing material and able to withstand hot/cold temperatures, rain, sleet, snow, etc. Your property value will increase with an aluminum fence based on the curb appeal and creating an open and natural view of the fence.

Natural Wood Fencing

Wood fencing is one of the most affordable fencing options that will still add value to your property as well as meet the most common needs for fencing: Pets, kids, and swimming pools. Maintenance throughout your fence’s life can be very involved from pressure washing, staining, and painting. You may enjoy being able to paint or stain your fence in any color you like. The durability of your wood fence is based on the wood fibers which will warp, twist, and rot due to naturally occurring weather conditions such as temperature, rain, snow, and wind. This will cause you to need to replace boards or possibly sections of the fence over the life of your fence. A wood fence can provide privacy and security for your home if you choose a fence style that has no spacing. When purchasing a wood fence, you have the option of picket (4 feet in height) or privacy (6 feet in height). These options add to curb appeal and save you money.
