Iron fencing, or ornamental fencing, is a classic way to intensify the architectural beauty of a structure, be it residential, commercial or industrial. If you want your fencing to make a strong statement, then iron fencing might be the way to go. Here’s some more information.
When it comes to iron fencing costs, you can expect to pay between $21 and $30 per foot. This can vary depending on the style, level of customization, and quality of materials used. For help with purchasing and installation, get a free estimate from a licensed professional.
Iron fencing is considered very durable and will maintain its look for years to come—as long as you protect it from rust.
Iron fencing may require more maintenance than vinyl, but it’s no more difficult to handle than wood. Keep your iron fencing looking like new by washing it with soap and water, then waxing it. If it looks like the surface has been scratched, use a bit of steel wool.
Residential iron fences range in height from 3’ to 6’ tall. However, as with any fencing type, the height and location of iron fences are typically regulated by local building codes. For industrial and commercial applications, fences are usually at least six feet tall.
Ornamental iron fences found their way to America from England during the Colonial era. While they were first used by only those rich enough to afford the expensive material, by the 19th century they were more widely produced and thus more widely available.
