Aluminum is a low density metal that is often used because of its innate ability to resist all sorts of corrosion. It is often used in the construction of buildings, transport vehicles as well as in the aerospace industry where many structural components have aluminum and its alloys as bases. It is lightweight, soft yet durable, malleable and ductile. Its appearance can range from something silvery to those that carry a duller gray tinge to it. This depends upon the roughness of its surface.

Steel on the other hand is an alloy which is primarily made up of carbon and iron. Whilst carbon may be the most common alloying material used for iron, there are also a variety of other elements that can be used. This includes chromium, manganese, tungsten and vanadium. Basically, carbon is added as a type of hardening agent which subsequently prevents any dislocations within the iron atom crystal lattice from separating and sliding past each other. Much like aluminum, it is also used in various construction purposes such as in the creation of tools, machines, automobiles, weapons as well as ships.


The most popular used wood types for fences are cedar, spruce, and pine. Depending on several factors, cedar may last for about 15-25 years, spruce for about 4-8 years, and pine for 5-10 years.
