Why a Black Aluminum Fence is the Best Choice in Leesburg, VA

Let’s talk about fencing. Fences are a great addition to most any property, commercial or residential. No matter what kind of fence you install, it enhances the aesthetic of the property, but of course, depending on the type of fence you install, they can do a lot more than just that. In many cases, adding a black aluminum fence to your Leesburg, VA is the best choice overall. We’ll take a closer look at exactly why that is in the sections below.

Hal Co is a reputable fence contractor serving Leesburg, VA residents for over three decades. We offer:

  • Quality design, selection, installation and related services for fences in Leesburg, VA following the highest safety procedures and industry standards.
  • We evaluate your aluminum fence project site and criteria to develop a comprehensive custom-installation plan to meet your requirements.
  • Personalized customer service before, during and after installing aluminum fences in Leesburg, VA to minimize your disruption and maximize your comfort.


Most business owners add fencing with security foremost on their minds, and when it comes to basic security, most people immediately gravitate to the old standby, the standard chain link fence.

It’s a decent choice. Chain link fencing is relatively inexpensive and can be put up quickly, but it does have one (potentially serious) drawback, and there’s really no getting around it. At the end of the day, it’s…a chain link fence. Not especially attractive as fencing goes. Adding a black aluminum fence to your Leesburg, VA would provide better security and is a much more attractive option for a nominal increase in price.

Estate Fencing

If you have a large property and want to bolster its seclusion and give it a stately air, an estate fence is a fine way to accomplish both goals. While wrought iron is the material of choice where estate fences are concerned, unless you’re independently wealthy and have a seven-figure income, surrounding an expansive property with wrought iron would be a daunting task indeed.

Again, adding a black aluminum fence to your Leesburg, VA property is an excellent alternative. It’s got a similar aesthetic and provides reasonably good security at a fraction of the cost.

Decorative Fencing

Sometimes, the main reason you want to add a fence has nothing to do with security. You just want something that will enhance the overall aesthetic of your property. Why not have your cake and eat it too though?

While a white picket fence won’t do anything to enhance the security of your home, adding a black aluminum fence to your Leesburg, VA property will provide an eye-catching enhancement and provide greater security in the same breath. Sure, it costs a bit more, and the two are not always interchangeable, but when and where they are, it’s a great option to consider.

Privacy Fences

While it’s true that adding a black aluminum fence to your Leesburg, VA property is a great choice in a lot of situations, if privacy is your main goal, it’s sadly not very well suited to providing it. In that case, you’re much better off going with a traditional wooden or composite privacy fence.

If you use anything else, you’re going to have to combine fencing with a line of shrubs or trees that run parallel to your fence line; but in that case, you’ll have to wait literally years to get the privacy you’re looking for, and most people just aren’t willing to wait that long.

Comparing Steel and Aluminum Fencing

Another alternative to consider is steel fencing. It’s a great option, more durable than its aluminum cousin, but also more expensive.

If you need to harden your property against physical threats, steel fencing is an appropriate choice, but that’s only true for a tiny percentage of the population, and then only in a few very specific circumstances. For most people, installing a black aluminum fence on your Leesburg, VA property will serve you just as well, cost you less money, and come in a variety of colors to boot, if black isn’t your thing.

As you can see, we’re big fans of aluminum fencing in general. It’s a fantastic, cost-effective option that’s well suited to a variety of applications.

At the end of the day though, it comes down to personal preference. Above all else, you should get the type of fencing you like best and that suits your needs.

Most people see the addition of fencing of any type to their property as an expense, but that’s not really an accurate way of looking at it. It’s an investment. Whatever type of fencing you add will enhance the value of your property. If and when you decide to sell, you’ll recoup most, if not all the money you put into it, and in the meantime, you’ll get to enjoy its benefits.

Whatever type of fencing you ultimately opt to have added to your property, we can help! We’re a locally owned and operated company that’s been proudly serving the region for more than thirty years, and we treat all of our customers like family.

Of course, we do a lot more than just install and repair fencing. Some of our other services include:


If you already have a porch, but it’s long overdue for maintenance, we’ve got you covered. We can refurbish your porch, restoring it to “like new” condition for a fraction of what it would cost to have a new one built in its place.

If you don’t have a porch, but you’ve always wanted one, we’re the company to call. The first thing we’ll do is have you sit down with one of our experienced estimators to get a feel for what your aims, goals, and preferences are.

Are you building your dream porch, or do you want something standard? How big? Should it wrap partway around your house? If so, how far? What materials would you prefer we use in construction? What kind of railing do you want? Do you want it screened in, or no?

These are important questions, and by getting down to brass tacks and particulars with you, we’ll be able to develop a detailed project plan that includes a free, no-obligation quote so you’ll know exactly what it will take to bring the project to completion. Then, when you’re comfortable with everything, we’ll dispatch one of our veteran crews to your home and begin the good work of turning your dream into a reality.


If you don’t (yet) have a deck on your property, we totally understand why you want one. This part of the country is blessed with breathtaking views, and there’s no better way to enjoy them from the comfort of your own home than relaxing on your dream deck.

Our process for new deck construction is similar to the one we described above in the section on porches. We’ll spend quite a lot of time talking with you about your aims and goals, and once we have a good understanding of what you want, we’ll develop a project plan and give you the quote. Assuming you’re comfortable, at that point, we’ll make it happen!

If you already have a deck, but it’s in need of some TLC, we can handle that for you too. As we described in the section on porches, we can restore your deck to “like new” condition for a fraction of what it would cost you to have a brand new deck built.


This part of the country is beautiful, but the storms that can sometimes pass through the area are fierce, and it’s entirely possible that your roof will take some damage, either due to excessive snow load or flying debris.

Few things are more damaging to your home than water, so if your roof should take damage for any reason, it’s nice to know that help is just a phone call away. We’ll come to your property, assess the damage and get your roof fixed before the elements can cause any further damage, and when it’s time to replace the roof altogether, we’ve got you covered there too. Consider us to be “one-stop shopping” for all the needs of your outdoor spaces!

Since the day we first opened our doors, we’ve built our reputation by exceeding the expectations of each and every customer we work with, and we’d love to add you to our growing family. If you’re like most people, you’ve probably got a “wish list” of enhancements you’d love to start making to your property, and we’d love to help!
