When choosing ornamental metal fencing of any specification, cost is always of concern. There are many misconceptions about the cost differences between decorative aluminum and high-strength steel materials for equivalent projects. At our full-service fence supply and installation company in Minnesota, we’d like you to know that the strength and security of steel fencing from Ameristar compares well in cost to equivalent aluminum materials. For both residential and commercial use, material costs are generally in the same range, when the design and installation specifications are similar. When you consider the higher strength of steel and the similar installation costs, there are plenty of reasons to make a full price comparison of the two materials for every project. We will be happy to provide an accurate quote for both metal materials and let you make your own decision on which material is right for your needs. As with all projects, the total cost is based on a number of factors, including:
- Model and Style – Ameristar offers a wide range of fence product lines, from lighter-duty residential ornamental products to maximum-strength industrial styles and grades. All have similar appearance, so your choice of model will determine a large part of your project’s price.
- Total Length – Steel ornamental fencing is priced by the linear foot, as are all materials. The more distance your project covers, the more expensive.
- Height – The taller your fence will be, the more materials are used in panels, pickets and posts. Steel fence panels range in height from 3 feet to 8 feet or more. Cost is directly related to height, proportional to the amount of materials used. In many cases, your choice of height is flexible.
- Material Grade – Ameristar fencing comes in four distinct grades, from Residential to High Security. Each grade has its own dimensions for posts, rails and pickets. The heavier the grade, the higher the per-foot cost for pre-assembled panels, posts and gates.
- Gates – Your choice of the number, size and type of gates for any project affects the total price. Gates are more expensive, per foot than fence panels, due to heavier construction, but also reduce the total length of the run of the fence. Gates are available in all grades.
- Accessories and Options – Many decorative accessories are available for a more customized appearance. All are priced individually. Options such as gate operators, security latches, and others also affect the overall project price as well.
- Additional Materials – Concrete for installation of posts and other materials may be required for a specific project. When we quote you a price for full installation, these materials will be included in our calculations and a comprehensive, all-inclusive estimate.
- Installation – If you choose to have your fence installed by our experienced, quality-oriented installers, the cost of installation will be based on total man-hours, equipment being used, and other factors. Installing a steel ornamental fence takes roughly the same amount of time as an aluminum fence.
