Aluminum fencing is an ideal choice for humid or damp conditions, but you don't have to live ocean-side to experience the wonderful benefits it offers. When deciding on fence material, consider that it's lightweight, extremely long-lasting, and requires very little maintenance, if any!

There are many benefits of aluminum fencing, but how much will an aluminum fence cost you? Read on to find out the prices you can expect.

Aluminum Fence Cost by Type

By choosing aluminum, you'll pay less for installation and shipping compared to a lot of other materials. And because of its malleability, you'll be able to pick from many different styles. It's also corrosion-resistant, unaffected by lawn chemicals, sprinklers, and rain.

Aluminum fence prices vary depending on many factors. But, the basic materials it takes to build an aluminum fence will cost between $7 and $40 per foot. You can expect your fence to arrive in the form of preassembled panels. These sizes can range from 4' to 8' long and 3' to 6' tall.

On average, one 4' x 6' panel costs about $60. There are systems available that consist of locking panels that don't require screws or brackets. These are easier to install an aluminum fence yourself and give a seamless look to your landscape.

Ornamental Fence

Installing an aluminum fence for ornamental purposes will run you between $15 and $40 per linear foot. The price gets up to around $100 per foot for high-end materials.

Pool Fence

Aluminum is a smart choice when it comes to pool fencing because of it's rust-resistance. One standard 4x6 foot residential fence panel is about $60. Their titanium and aluminum alloys along with the many layers of color coatings, make them great at resisting the weather.

Consider buying a 4x6 foot panel that is powder-coated. You'll spend between $50 and $70 on each one. Alternatively, you can have a pro apply this powder coating to a pre-existing fence for only $6-$8 per foot.

This powder coating will protect almost any surface from wear, rust, and corrosion, whether indoors or out. It's a dry finishing process and the cost is less on aluminum than other metals. The size will determine your final price.

Privacy Fence

The average privacy fence panel 6 feet in height can cost between $30 and $40 per linear foot. The cost of an aluminum fence built for privacy depends on a few things:

  1. Is your material 100% aluminum?
