Aluminum Fence Do-it-Yourself Guide

Aluminum Fence Do-it-Yourself Guide

Our Allied Fence professionals are always here for all your installation needs, but if you’d prefer to install your own aluminum fencing, our guide can help you plan. See the types of aluminum fencing we offer.




  1. Create a sketch of the area you wish to install your fence, using the sample above as a guide — click to enlarge.
2. Establish all gate(s) and/or transition locations.
3. Determine number of sections; keep in mind that if a required section is less than 6′, this will require the section to be trimmed. Example: 20′ of fence will require 4 sections (4 sections x 6′ = 24′, 4′ must be trimmed to accommodate installation).
4. Determine the number of posts. Note – all gates must be installed with left and right gate posts only.
5. Enhance your design as you like by adding accessories such as scrolls, finials, ball caps, etc.

Before Installation

Consult your building department for local code requirements. Check with utility companies to locate underground pipes, lines, cables, etc.

Private Residence, Atlanta GA

Allied Fence Co. is proud to have been asked to design, fabricate and install an ornamental aluminum fence at the home of one of Atlanta’s most successful and best-known businessmen.

Private Residence, Atlanta GA

Allied Fence Co. spotlights its recent fence project at the new palatial estate of a renowned business owner in Atlanta. The discerning customer owns one of the largest private businesses in Georgia.
Situated on almost seven acres in the heart of Buckhead, this was a very challenging assignment. Crews spent three weeks in the woods, climbing hills and crossing creeks. They even encountered a family of deer living in the backyard. Unique to this project were a number of custom cedar gates including a pair of estate gates that open automatically by motors that are hidden in the ground. An enormous generator is shielded from view on the walking paths by a custom cedar rail fence using 8 inch posts and 2 by 6 rails. The lush property with magnificent 100-year-old trees is surrounded by over 2,500 feet of black vinyl chain link.
Allied Fence Co. is extremely proud to have been selected for this high-profile, intricate fence installation.
