If you want to install a fence that will stand for decades at your Savannah area property, one great choice is aluminum fencing. It’s stronger, responsibly sourced, and fully recyclable. Even if you like the look of wood picket fencing, you can find an alternative with aluminum fencing.
Aluminum Fences Are Stronger Than Wood and Other Fencing Materials
When thinking of metal fencing materials, you probably won’t imagine anything close to “eco friendly.” You’d be surprised to know that aluminum fences are actually not bad for the environment thanks to their recyclability.
According to The Aluminum Association “the use of aluminum helps installing projects qualify for green building status under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards.” There are many benefits to choosing aluminum fences, but now you can feel even better knowing that your purchase will have a minimal environmental impact.
Aluminum Fencing is Recyclable in Georgia
While you may not need to ever replace an aluminum fence, there might come a time to dispose of one. When that time comes, you simply break down your fence and take the posts to your local scrap metal recycling center. Aluminum is an easy material to recycle over and over. You might even get money back for recycling your aluminum fence.
Not only is your fence completely recyclable, but it was probably made from recycled materials, too! Aluminum fences are often made from recycled aluminum in the process of aluminum extrusion. It’s amazing how much recycling can do to decrease pollution and decrease the amount of waste.
Sparing the Georgia Trees
Here’s another great thing about making fences out of recycled aluminum: the production process doesn’t require any lumber. Aluminum fences do not require the use of wood during manufacturing, construction, or installation. Saving tree forests is an obvious benefit to choosing aluminum over the other fencing materials. In theory, more aluminum fences equals more trees in the forest to absorb CO2 and ideally lowering the effects of global warming.
Cambium Wood Grain Effect by ActiveYards
On that note, if you prefer the look of wood grain fencing, check out the Cambium fences by ActiveYardsⓇ. It’s a vinyl fencing material that looks like real wood but it’s a much more durable and eco-friendly alternative. Cambium comes in a variety of stains and finishes that are sure to match the look you desire.
Aluminum Fence Sustainability
If you want to be a responsible shopper in our culture, invest in quality items that are built to last instead of cheap things that quickly become disposable. Choose the most sustainable option! A well-built aluminum fence will last a lifetime and ours are covered under warranty, just in case. It’s always better to repair instead of replacing, whenever it’s possible. The ActiveYards fencing makes it more affordable to do that.
No Chemical Cleaning Needed
Aluminum fences don’t need much cleaning or maintenance, let alone harmful chemicals. The only cleaning you’ll need to do is occasionally rinsing with plain water. You might spray your fence off at the beginning of each spring season and that should be enough to keep your fence looking brand new all year. Unlike other types of fences, aluminum fences won’t need to be painted or stained. They also don’t require any sealants, sprays, or pesticides.
Aluminum Fences are Affordable
Aluminum fences cost less than some types of metal fences in the Savannah, Georgia area. You’ll get the timeless beauty and a similar durability of iron and steel fences for a fraction of the cost when you choose aluminum. The price of aluminum fencing depends on the grade of aluminum, color, and style. Also, plan for installation costs unless you’re going to self-install your new fence.

Installing a fence is hard work. It usually includes digging holes, pouring concrete, and hours of labor. If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, ActiveYardsⓇ has a DIY solution for easy-to-install aluminum fences that will save you money.
