Other companies say that they're US companies because they 'assemble' their products in the US, but if you ask them where they're buying their aluminum extrusions from OR where their powder coating is being done, in just about ALL instances, you'll find that they're getting it from China or Mexico. We represent a company that ONLY buys their aluminum from US companies and assembles it right here in North Carolina, USA. Even our arched gates, estate and cantilever gates are manufactured at their plant in North Carolina from materials purchased locally.
The benefit of being *Made in the USA* is QUALITY. Your nice black fence won't be fading and turning gray and won't be chipping, peeling or flaking like these other company's products.
Don't learn the hard way by realizing you've been lied to AFTER the product is already in your yard.
The products are also manufactured with an Environmentally Friendly Electrostatic Powder Coating process. This powder coating not only leaves an extremely durable and weather resistant coating on our products, it also doesn't emit the large amount of VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) that is common in liquid coating processes that damage the atmosphere. Our coating is guaranteed to meet and exceed the stringent performance requirements of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA-2603) against corrosion and fading, keeping your fence looking beautiful and Maintenance Free.
We started Aluminum Fences Direct because the larger fence contractors, with their better pricing, are able to compete better for the aluminum and ornamental jobs leaving the smaller guys to overcharge or just not get the jobs because they can't buy as low as the larger guys. The larger fence contractors are buying in volume or buying from China and assembling it themselves, whereas the smaller contractors don't have that capability.
We know this to be true as we had a small fence company that we started in 1999. We ended up selling it in part because we saw this same competition which made it very hard to be profitable. The large fence contractors had all the profit but only dropped their prices if a smaller contractor tried to get agressive. We know a lot about fencing, especially aluminum, so if you have any questions in what you might need, please don't hesitate to contact us.
With our volume comittment and national coverage, we have contracted an agressive discount structure that we're able to forward on to you... the DIY home owner and smaller fence contractors.
As mentioned, all of our aluminum fence panels, posts and gates are made and assembled in the USA which is why we can offer such a quick turn-around of just 5-10 business days.
We are proud to announce a recent recognition from the US Commerce Association by receiving the '2011 Best of Raleigh Award'.
