A short time ago, an owner in Model Village made a presentation to the SCA board of directors and to ARC regarding an alternate screening for the iron fences we have separating many of the homes in SCA.
‘At the time the chair of ARC was adamantly opposed to anything but perforated steel which was far more costly. His statement was that the perforated steel was far superior and would not rust. Well, that would be the case if the homeowner went to the added expense of having the steel sheeting powder coated, not just having it installed the way it is purchased.
I mentioned that I had seen many of the steel backed fencing rusting and the rust ran down to the brick foundation and stained them. My comments were dismissed. As I returned home yesterday, I took a photograph of such a fence and present it to you here in the hopes that, perhaps NOW ARC will approve adding the alternate lining to our permitted items.
