Choosing the right fence for your property is an important, and sometimes difficult, decision to make. To choose the right fencing style, you need to determine the length of your property and how much of it you want to fence, the purpose (e.g., keeping pets in, keeping pests out, or aesthetic appeal), and your budget. We also remind fence seekers to check with their Homeowners Association and ensure all requirements can be met.
Some fences, like chain link, do the trick if you’re looking to contain your dog, but aren’t the sturdiest or longest-lasting option. A privacy fence will certainly provide longevity, but you may want more visibility so you can chat with your neighbors from the backyard or see who is coming when someone pulls up to your house. Different fences serve different purposes. Today, we are going to discuss the benefits of an iron fence.
Iron Fence Durability
Iron fences are one of the strongest fencing types available. Wrought iron fences are made using iron ore, refined to a very low carbon iron alloy. The result is a strong and corrosion-resistant metal that can be easily welded into a fence. They do not rust and can be repaired easily, including a fresh coat of paint as they age to maintain their fresh appearance.
Cost is often a factor when choosing the best fence option for you. While iron fencing can be a more expensive choice at the outset, it can be cost-effective. A well-kept iron fence can last 20 years, and sometimes more. The lifetime value is great. Ultimately, you get a long-lasting, classic barrier that efficiently serves its protective purpose.
Iron Fence Customization
Another great characteristic of iron fences is that, due to their malleability, it can be customized to fit your style. The fence can be simple and elegant or designed with great detail. Welders can create ornate patterns or accents for a fence that truly represents your family’s taste.
All iron fences can include ornate metalwork. You can of course leave the bars simple, or you can add some designs to make your fence pop. Designs can be added on top of the bars, or in the midsection of the fence. Since these fences can be quite tall and protective, designs can be very intricate. It’s hard to find a prettier, more classic fencing style than wrought iron.
Adding Lasting Value with Iron Fencing
Iron fencing is a fantastic way to add an extra touch of beauty to your property. An iron fence will give your home an upscale look in addition to securing your residence with a sturdy, trustworthy barrier. Beyond being incredibly durable and easily personalized, iron fencing is a foolproof way to increase your home value. It is a great option for homeowners with a flexible budget who want a wide range of design options and a fence that will last for years to come.
