A wrought iron fence is a stately addition to any home or commercial property. The ornate design of a sturdy fence made of wrought iron adds a unique flair to your property as well as a level of security. However, these fences do tend to wear away over time. You may have bought a property with an old wrought iron fence that is falling apart. Or perhaps you recently installed a wrought iron fence only to accidentally back into it with your car. There are all types of damage that can be sustained by fences. It’s important to know just when you need repair versus when you need your fence replaced entirely.
Wrought Iron Fence Rust
Let’s begin with the rusty fence. Say you are the second generation living in your home. Your fence has been protecting your home since you were a child. But it doesn’t look as shiny and sturdy as it did back then. Repair to rust damage goes case-by-case. Depending on the extent of the damage, you may want to replace the fence entirely. You also want to consider your budget. If you don’t have a lot of money set aside to completely replace a wrought iron fence, then you may be able to cover up small rust spots with paint. If the rust is bad enough to compromise the structural integrity of the fence, however, then you may want to consider having the fence removed and replacing it later.
Wrought Iron Fence Damage
If only a section of the fence is warped or broken and the rest of the fence is structurally sound and rust-free, then it makes sense to replace only the damaged part of the fence. Railings and fence posts tend to be the first to lose structural integrity in an old fence. In this case, you can have the old or damaged part of the fence removed and replaced while still preserving the rest of the fence. The end result is a wrought iron fence that looks like new but doesn’t cost as much as replacing the entire fence.
