When you picture a wrought iron fence, what type of house do you see around it? For most people, the mental image is more of the Addams family’s home than the Brady Bunch’s. This is because society is associated with wrought iron – stoic, traditional, expensive, and upscale. That impression doesn’t have to be accurate, however. For some great reasons, you should consider iron fencing for your next fence.
Longevity And Durability
An iron fence is one of the most durable available on the market. If it is properly maintained, an iron fence can last decades. In many cases, a wrought iron fence can last longer than the life of the person who installed it. This is a big part of why these fences are closely associated with old, stately homes. Because the fended are often very old. Iron is also impervious to many types of damage that other materials (like wood) suffer, including insects and rot. You also don’t have to worry about cracking if you hit it with your lawn mower.
Maintenance Isn’t As Hard As You Think
Many people are hesitant to consider this fence because they believe it needs much more maintenance than a wood or vinyl fence. That simply is not accurate. Most of the care comes down to removing any rust and preventing more. You’ll need a brush to remove rust, and after it is removed, you’ll need to prime and paint. While installing an iron fence is not a DIY task, maintaining one easily is.
Iron Is Very Secure
Iron fencing is a very safe and secure option. Iron is solid metal, meaning your metal fencing will provide better security than another option, like vinyl. This isn’t to say that vinyl isn’t a good option, but if security is a concern, metal is a better choice.
It Likely Will Fit Your Home Style
Iron fits many styles of home, from colonial to Georgian to Victorian. It is a beautiful stylistic option and can help increase the curb appeal and value of your home.
