Updated: Feb 8

For property owners interested in a fence more unique than vinyl and more durable than wood, corrugated steel fence may stand out. Of course, some metal fences may rust relatively quickly.

Steel Fence in a Nutshell

Steel is quite popular for both residential and commercial properties due to its strength. Generic steel fencing in particular may not be as popular as the material is for other uses due to the potential for rust—but the right coatings can increase its aesthetic/lifespan greatly.  

This type of fencing is characterized by a unique wave-like pattern, attained via the corrugation of steel sheets. The corrugated design adds strength to the fence but also contributes to its unique visual appeal.  


Pros of Corrugated Steel Fence

1. Durability: Corrugated steel fences are known for their exceptional strength and longevity, making them a reliable option for security and privacy. 

2. Low Maintenance: Unlike traditional wooden fences, corrugated steel requires little to no maintenance. It’s resistant to termites, rot, and decay, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements. With the right coatings, it won’t need frequent repainting either. 

3. Weather Resistance: It's highly resistant to the elements, including wind, snow, and harsh sunlight. This weather-resistance ensures structural integrity over time. 

4. Versatile Design: Corrugated steel fences can offer a modern, robust appearance that complements many architectural styles. ColorMax fence in particular offers a sleek appearance in versatile colors. This brand has coatings that offer significant longevity. 

5. Fire Retardant: A steel privacy fence stands up to bush fires much better than vinyl or, of course, wood.


Cons of Corrugated Steel Fences

1. Initial Cost: While a corrugated steel fence may offer long-term cost savings due to its durability, the initial installation cost may not be as cheap as a more generic white vinyl fence. 

2. Rust: Not all steel fences will rust quickly, but some might. Be aware of the quality of your choice. Because of its overall longevity & resistance to rust, we offer ColorMax fence materials.
