When you finally pull the trigger and make the investment to have new aluminum fencing installed around your home, you want to do all that you can to ensure that it maintains its good condition for many years. Here, you'll find a few tips that will help you keep your aluminum fencing looking great.
If you live in an area that is prone to heavy snows, you need to make sure that your fencing will be visible no matter how much snow falls. Fencing that is installed directly along the road or along your driveway should have flags attached to them in some areas. You want anyone operating a snow plow to be able to see that there is fencing hidden underneath all of that snow.
You can pick up the tall flags that are used on bicycles, or you can opt to create your own flags using some PVC piping and some vinyl material. Simply cut the material to size, attach it to the piping, and use some zip ties to secure it to the fencing.
Do you love going all out and decorating for the holidays? If so, there's no reason to skip decorating the fence. You have some non-damaging options.
Command Hooks – These awesome little hooks can be used indoors and out. They can be stuck on nearly any surface without causing any type of damage when they're removed. To install the hooks on your outdoor aluminum fencing, you'll need to prep the area for placement by wiping it with a little bit of rubbing alcohol. Once wiped, it needs to dry for just a second or two, and then the hook can be applied and will stay strong throughout the season.
Zip Ties – Zip ties can make it easy to hang stuff on your fencing, but if you have painted aluminum fencing, you may want to add a little layer of protection so that the zip ties don't scratch the finish. To do this, all you'll need is a little bit of masking tape. Wrap the tape around the fencing where the zip tie will be attached. Then, when you secure the zip tie, make sure that it is as tight as possible so that it won't shift when the wind blows.
