Installing a new mailbox and contemplating the benefits of both steel and aluminum options? Several factors come into play when choosing a mailbox, and sometimes it ends up being overwhelming to decide amongst dozens of mailbox options. Estes clarifies the benefits of both steel and aluminum mailboxes to narrow down your search and identify a mailbox that fits your personal needs.
Option #1) Steel Mailboxes
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. The life of a steel mailbox can be lengthened by applying a powder coating finish.
Option #2) Aluminum Mailboxes
Aluminum mailboxes are a little more expensive but not susceptible to rust and last much longer than traditional steel boxes. Estes Designs – Mailbox & Streetscapes manufactures and sells an aluminum mailbox that not only looks great, but is much more durable and reliable. Estes has taken all the parts of the mailbox that typically fail due to rust or wear and tear (i.e. the latch, door hinge, etc.) and made them better, stronger and not as corrosive.
