If you’re looking for aluminum fence installation or old-fashioned wood fence installation in Miami, FL, give us a call. We do lots of fencing in conjunction with our landscape services, including aluminum gate installation and aluminum pool fence installation.
Many places, including Florida, require fencing around pools — even private pools.
There are pros and cons to both aluminum and wood fencing. Our opinion is that the closer you are to water, the better off you will be getting aluminum fencing installation because aluminum doesn’t rust, and it holds up pretty well in most environments.
In addition, aluminum fence installation prices are lower. Wood fence installation pricing is difficult to match to aluminum because wood fence posts installation usually takes longer, especially if you’re getting a custom-made fence. Wood fencing definitely provides more privacy because the planks or pickets are closer together. However, it will block your view of the water which may be an issue as well.
In addition, a real wood fence is just more attractive. And if you intend to use our wood fence gate installation, you’ve increased the attraction factor by quite a bit.
Both wood and aluminum do need treatments and maintenance against salt water. Wood needs much more maintenance than aluminum. The Florida sun will damage wood, so we treat all our wood fencing products. Cedar and redwood are the best woods to use if you’re on the coast.
Here are a few other considerations to keep in mind:
- Labor to install aluminum fencing is almost always lower than wood installation.
- Aluminum fencing works well on sloped landscapes
- Aluminum fencing is more durable against bugs and mold
