The Rise of Ornamental Aluminum Fence
Article from October 2022 edition of “FenceNews USA”
According to the professionals at Eastern Wholesale Fence, there are many questions a homeowner needs to answer when working with a fence installer. Are they looking for added security? Are they looking for aesthetics? Are they looking for privacy, or are they just trying to get something installed for the lowest price to close in their yard?
When it comes to answering the question of “What is the highest value fence for the money?” the answer often comes back to ornamental aluminum.
Ornamental aluminum fencing is a picket style fence that was created to match the look of traditional wrought iron or steel fencing without the added cost or shipping weight. Ornamental aluminum has fast become one of the most sought-after types of fencing in the entire industry. It’s simple to install, lightweight, looks great, easy to maintain, corrosion resistant, easy to repair, comes in multiple colors, and almost immediately adds to a home’s resale value.
“A properly installed ornamental fence can offer a surprising amount of value to a home while offering an even better value than many other fences,” says Eastern Wholesale Fence’s Chief Revenue Officer Chris DeLuso. “Many people also see them as an attractive alternative to chain-link fencing. They are commonly used as a pool enclosure and in residential backyard applications to allow the beauty of the surrounding landscape to show through”
Eastern Wholesale Fence had seen such a rise in ornamental sales of its Eastern Ornamental Aluminum brand sold in the Northeast, that they have invested in other companies that provide ornamental fence products in other areas. These companies include Coastal Aluminum Fencing made in Laurinburg, NC, and Eastern Fence – Fort Mill.
DeLuso says both companies have thriving ornamental aluminum lines that offer strong in-stock positions, short delivery times, and product options throughout the entire eastern seaboard. This firmly places Eastern Wholesale Fence and its sister companies as one of the largest ornamental fence manufacturers and distributors in the industry.
“Eastern Ornamental Fence, Coastal Aluminum Fence, and Eastern’s Fort Mill Aluminum fence have quickly become a large part of what we sell along the east coast of the United States,” adds DeLuso. “We have seen significant growth in this market over the last few years with no signs of slowing down.”
