Metal Fencing is Trendy & Timeless

The white picket fence may be a symbol of the American dream, but in recent years metal fencing has been giving this Americana standard a run for its money.

Metal fencing has been gaining popularity among homeowners who yearn for clean lines, flexibility, and low-maintenance solutions for their property that also happen to lean upscale.

In 2020 alone, the global metal fencing market was valued at 13 billion, and metal fences accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 50% in 2021.

Long gone are the days of rigid metal materials that are not easy to customize to your style. Today’s metal fencing — aluminum, steel, ornamental wrought iron, chain link — is available in a variety of options, colors and unique finishes.

At Buzz Custom Fence, we can help design and install metal fencing and gates throughout Dallas Fort Worth. Our team of professional welders offer expert installation that will stand the test of time. We also know the ins and outs of your city’s fencing codes and will make sure there are no permit surprises.

Types of Metal Fencing

Wrought Iron

Although modern metal fencing may look like wrought iron, it’s usually steel — which is more widely available and just as strong as its traditional, hand-forged counterpart but not nearly as expensive, heavy or difficult to install.

Modern wrought iron can be molded into intricate Victorian shapes as well as modern geometric designs.

On top of being upscale and elegant, wrought iron fencing provides a secure perimeter around your home. The vertical posts are difficult for intruders to climb, and you can add ornamental finials to the pickets as an extra deterrent.

Picket styles include pressed spears, triad spears and fleur-de-lis, for starters. And you can pick post caps that complement the style of your home. For instance, try a hospitality pineapple for your Colonial or large orbs for your Victorian.

Aluminum Fencing

Aluminum fencing appears similar to wrought iron, but it’s typically available at a lower price point and is lighter and easier to install.

The most lightweight fences are made of tubular aluminum, which weighs in about four times lighter than steel.

At Buzz, our aluminum fences require very little maintenance because of our DuPont Platinum certified system coating process that renders the fence resistant to rust, even where the base of the post touches the ground. Fences with this treatment can survive both acidic areas and high-moisture areas — so whether you reside in humid Texas or arid Texas, your fence will be long-lasting.

Buzz Custom Fence offers two- and three-rail horizontal designs for a modern vibe. Two rails work well for shorter fences, and fences 6 feet or taller will require three rails.

Chain Link

Did you know that the most ubiquitous and affordable metal fencing — chain-link — has an interesting and proud history?

In modern times, chain-link fencing is not allowed in most Texas cities due to residential code restrictions. It still remains a popular choice, however, for commercial projects, park projects and landowners who live in rural areas with lots of land or animals to contain.

Buzz Custom Fence offers modern versions of this enduring fencing material. Stainless steel is the most popular material for chain-link fencing. Fence height can vary widely, a residential chain link fence could be as short as 3 feet while tennis court fencing could be as tall as 20 feet.

At Buzz, we offer chain-link fencing coated with colored polyester, PVC or vinyl to limit corrosion. Coatings also allow for color; green and black can help a fence blend into the background.

Buzz Custom Fence only uses the highest quality iron fences with an exclusive perma-plus paint powder coating that provides an even longer-lasting finish than most painted iron fences. This coating is waterproof and bug-resistant.

Need further proof that modern wrought iron is versatile? You can easily mix and match a specific color directly off a color wheel. Sanding, priming and painting with rust-resistant primer and paint is easy to do.

Aluminum fencing is also eco-friendly because it is composed of recycled materials. Because these fences are manufactured, they come in various styles and colors. Homeowners often find that even the standard powder coating colors — green, brown, white, black — perfectly pair with their home aesthetic.

The lower the gauge, the stronger the wire, with 6 being the strongest and 13 being the lightest (and usually used for temporary fencing). Homeowners usually choose 11 gauge and commercial projects typically use 9 gauge.

The grid size refers to the distance between the wires. The smaller the spacing, the more secure the fence.
