Steel vs. Aluminum Fencing

B&T Fencing specializes in steel and aluminum fencing; both of which have unique benefits that can make it difficult to determine which material is right for your home or business.

We’re here to break it down for you:


Extreme Durability

Due to steel’s protective coating, this fencing option will last for years to come and require minor maintenance.

Heavier and Denser

In comparison to aluminum fencing, steel offers an option resistant to strong winds or damage

Long-term Cost Savings

Steel fencing is a large investment up front, but it pays off in the long-run due to the lower frequency of upkeep required by other fencing materials


Own a commercial property? Does your concern for a safe home keep you up at night? Steel provides a strong barrier to exterior elements, making it a high-security option for any commercial or residential property.



Provide Safety/Security



Lightweight with Durability

Aluminum fencing is made of compound materials that will last for years despite being exposed to the natural elements.

Strong, but not for a long-term solution

Because aluminum is lightweight, it has a high chance of bending over time. This means that it is not ideal for commercial or industrial properties that require stronger, more secure barriers.

Short-Term Cost Savings

Aluminum is a lower-cost, effective solution to fencing in the short-term. While still durable, the lightweight nature of it requires regular maintenance and upkeep.


When you’re trying to make the decision between aluminum and steel, consider these questions:

  1. Is this fence for a residential or commercial property?
  2. Are you more interested in security or style?
  3. Is a short-term or long-term solution more valuable to you?
