There are certain steps that need to be taken for a successful home improvement aluminum fence project. Check out this guide to ensure you’re ready.

When starting any big project, it’s easy to assume you know exactly what to expect, especially if you are pretty good at home improvement jobs in general. Having a great repertoire of tools helps, as does a general know-how of how the job should go. Consider the example of installing commercial fencing in aluminum. For a seasoned pro, it will seem like a pretty straightforward project, installing a few posts and slipping the panels in between them. However, there is so much more to think about. From choosing a style and ordering the parts to aftercare and troubleshooting, there are plenty of areas you will want to be fully versed in to get the desired end result.

How to Decide

Commercial fencing comes in a multitude of styles to choose from and sizes to narrow down. Sizing should be pretty straightforward, but it does involve precise measuring on your part. Measure the space a few times and set out how tall you want the fence to be compared to the buildings on the property so you can ensure you are choosing exactly what your property needs.

How to Order

Ordering commercial aluminum fencing is a breeze. It can all be done online, which gives you free reign over when and where you will make your big purchase. There is a plethora of information to read and understand to help you with not only selection but also the ordering process. Check whether the delivery times work for you and your expected project time, and clear a space on the property for the panels to go once they arrive.

How to Install

There are helpful instructions for the installation process that you will definitely want to check out beforehand. You don’t need any specialized tools, but having certain items for digging may be useful. Installation is the hard part, labor-wise. Erecting a fence made of panels is much easier than going picket by picket, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need to use a little elbow grease. Ask a friend or colleague for help lifting the panels if necessary.

How to Clean

The upkeep and cleaning of an aluminum panel fence is minimal, which is one of the main reasons people choose this handy fencing material. There is a powder coating on aluminum fencing that keeps the metal safe from harsh elements and wear and tear. The powder coating does most of the heavy lifting in terms of upkeep. Fence owners just need to wipe down the fence between seasons with mild soap and water. This is a great time to also check for any scratches or dents on the surface of the fence, which can be easily remedied.

Did you ever have one of those assignments in grade school where your teacher told you to read through the directions from start to finish first before beginning? That’s what installing commercial fencing in aluminum is like. It’s best to be fully prepared for each step along the way. Knowing what to expect and preparing for it is half the battle that can be easily won by knowing what you’re getting into.
