Metal fencing is typically very durable and weather-resistant. There are three metals that are most popular for use in fencing – aluminum, wrought iron and steel.
Aluminum is the cheaper of these two materials, and there is almost no upkeep needed. In addition, aluminum will not rust, so it is perfect for standing up against rain, snow and other wet weather elements.
Wrought iron may be more costly, but it makes an extremely sturdy option for fencing, and it can be crafted to fit your own personal fencing project.
Steel is often used in industrial fencing, but can also be used in decorative fencing for a home or business. It is strong and very durable as well.
