Just about everyone knows that old story about how Tom Sawyer tricked his friends into whitewashing his Aunt Polly’s fence, and how they were happy to do it, thinking it was some kind of contest. The truth of the matter was that fence painting is awful and Tom knew it! If only he never had to paint that fence. Well, back in those days, protecting and maintaining your fence was not only inevitable, but extremely necessary if you wanted to keep something around for longer than a few seasons. Today we have the benefit of modern building materials, including aluminum fencing, which never needs to be painted.
