Why Steel & Not Aluminum?

The Industry’s Strongest Material

Steel is used to build strong structures: skyscrapers, stadiums, airports, and bridges. In Minnesota where our summers are hot and humid and our winters are cold and dry, steel is the best option for ornamental fencing.  Steel will not sag after a harsh winter, where snow and ice weighs down on your fence. It will not bend or scratch when you run the lawn mower or weed whip by it (or into it).

Building A Fence To Last A Lifetime

At Northland Fence, we use steel for all of our fence posts and for our ornamental fences. We choose a powder-baked, galvanized steel that doesn’t rust or scratch so it can withstand the weather in Minnesota. Part of our commitment to customer service is that we don’t want your fence to need repairs or expensive and consuming upkeep.  Because of its strength, we know your steel fence will keep your property secure for life, and withstand your kids throwing a ball at it or limbs falling from trees.

 The modern coated steel we use is the same steel used on boat and lake docks, designed to handle the wear and tear of being submerged in water. Similarly, snow and ice will not impact the quality or looks of your steel fence. With a solid steel fence, you do not need to worry about rust, either!
