What Should I Look for in an Ornamental Iron Fence?
Ornamental iron fences are not all the same. In fact, many iron fences on the market today are made of substandard materials that will begin to rust or weather within one to two years. To avoid a poorly manufactured fence, it is important to look for one made of 100% galvanized steel that is treated with a high-rated zinc coating. It should also be finished with a protective powder coating covering all sides of the fence to prevent weathering.
These elements are essential to producing a well-made ornamental iron fence. If a manufacturer won’t tell you if the steel is galvanized, if both sides of the fence are treated, or what the zinc coating rating is, you should be suspicious of the product’s quality and durability.
