Selecting the right mailbox for your home
Are you installing a new mailbox and contemplating the benefits of both steel and aluminum options? Several factors come into play when choosing the perfect mailbox for your home, and sometimes it ends up being overwhelming to decide among dozens of mailbox options. Estes Designs Mailbox and Streetscapes clarifies the benefits of both steel and aluminum mailboxes to narrow down your search and identify a mailbox that fits your personal needs.
Steel mailboxes represent an economical option for outdoor mail delivery. Steel can be scratched, dinged, and bent but not lose its own structural integrity. However, weather and other elements cause steel to be susceptible to rust and other damage.
Aluminum mailboxes can be a little more expensive than steel but are rust-resistant and last much longer than steel. Estes Designs Mailbox and Streetscapes manufactures and sells aluminum mailboxes that look great, and are much more durable and reliable. Estes mailboxes are stronger and not as corrosive as traditional mailboxes. Additionally, Estes Designs used innovative thinking to rethink a mailbox. The result was a mailbox better resistant to wear and tear.
