No. Many people use the term wrought iron fence and aluminum fence interchangeably but the reality is that there are very few wrought iron fences being fabricated today. The primary reason is because aluminum fences do not oxidize or rust like iron fences and thus involve much less maintenance than iron fences do. Also, because of the corrosive properties of ferrous metal like iron, they tend to not have the longevity of aluminum fences making aluminum fence an even better choice for the customer that want a fence with longevity that is virtually maintenance free.
Aluminum is a naturally corrosion-resistant material, so it is not prone to rusting like iron or steel. In fact, one of the main benefits of aluminum fencing is its low maintenance and long lifespan. With proper care and maintenance, an aluminum fence can last for many years without rusting or deteriorating. However, it is important to note that aluminum can become damaged or discolored over time due to environmental factors such as salt water, acid rain, and extreme temperatures. To keep your aluminum fence looking its best, it is recommended to clean it regularly and to apply a protective coating if necessary.
