Purchasing a new fence is a big decision, and deciding between wood, vinyl, and aluminum can be difficult. However, we have put a list together of things to consider when buying an aluminum fence. We will also outline the fantastic benefits of aluminum fences. Here, at Timber Ridge Fence Company, we offer a wide range of products to choose from, and in unique situations, we even can custom design aluminum fence panels to fit your specific needs.
Are you in your forever home or do you plan on selling your house soon? This is one of the first questions that we ask every homeowner. It is essential to know the answer because it can help guide you in your fence buying decision. If you only plan on living at your house for a couple of years, it might make more sense for you to purchase a picket wood fence. Wood fences last a long time, and you will save a decent amount of money. On the flip side, buying an aluminum fence is an excellent investment for the short term and long. Even if you plan to sell your house in the next couple of years, an aluminum fence will hold its value much better than a wood fence. It won't fade, rust, or decay! It will look just like it did on day one, and this is important when trying to sell your home. Also, if you are in your forever home, you can rest assured that your aluminum fence will last a very long time. There is very little maintenance needed when it comes to the aluminum fence.
Do you want a privacy fence? Or do you have a tiny dog? If you answered yes to either of these questions, an aluminum fence might not be the best option for you. First off, aluminum fences do not offer any privacy. They are a picket-style fence, and there are no ways to alter the fence at all. This has its advantages, though, for the right homeowners. The beauty of the picket aluminum fence is twofold; first, it does not block or obstruct the views. Maybe you back up to a lovely pond or are good friends with your neighbors; either way, an aluminum fence allows you to enjoy those views while maintaining your boundaries. Secondly, because of the open design, the wind goes right through the fence. This helps it last longer because the posts don't have to withstand the high wind as much as they would with a privacy-type fence. Last but not least, you have to be aware of your dog, especially if it's tiny. Aluminum fences come standard with a 4" space between the pickets, usually double the size gap of a wood-spaced picket fence. So if you have a dog under 25lbs, it is probably possible for them to escape through the pickets.
Are you allowed to have an aluminum fence? Two places you should check before purchasing an aluminum fence; Your HOA (Home Owners Association) and Village. If you don't have an HOA, great, this doesn't apply to you. However, if you do, I would check their rules and regulations first, then move on to the village. It is essential to check both of these places first because you will have to get HOA approval, and you will have to obtain a permit approved by the village. Most HOA's regulate the style and material of the fences allowed for the subdivision. For instance, maybe you can only have a 4' wood shadowbox fence. Or perhaps you are only allowed to have aluminum. Either way, it's good to know this before the estimate process.

Benefits Of A Aluminum Fence
Durability: When it comes to low maintenance and durability, aluminum fences are one of your best options. Here at Timber Ridge Fence company, we take pride in our aluminum fences. They are all USA Made and come with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer. We screw together all-aluminum pickets and then powder coat them, assuring a long-lasting fence that doesn't fade or rust. And because all of our aluminum fences have an open design, they last longer against the elements and hold up better in the wind, ensuring a fence that will withstand the test of time.
Affordability: Aluminum fences are suitable in the middle when it comes to cost. They aren't the most expensive option, but they are the cheapest option. Due to their low maintenance and durability, they will hold their value for a long time, and there shouldn't be any maintenance fees associated with them.
Increased Beauty: As we mentioned before, aluminum fencing provides you with a luxurious look and feel of iron fencing at a fraction of the cost. If you are looking to make a statement and increase the overall value of your home, then aluminum fencing is right for you! They will maintain your properties line, but not at the expense of your views! So if you back up to a lovely pond or enjoy the company of your neighbors, an aluminum fence might be your best option.
Overall I had a great experience with Timber Ridge Fence. Jason was great, even when we asked to change the plan days after signing the contract. The fence was installed within a couple of weeks of the estimate, not months later, as other companies told us. The installers did a fantastic job, and the fence seems to be high quality for a reasonable price! I would recommend it.
