Your new wooden fence looks great now, but if you do not properly maintain it, it will not last very long. Sun, wind and especially water can wreak havoc on your fence. But a little preventative maintenance can go a long way to extend the life of your wooden fence.
Nothing looks quite as nice as a wooden fence surrounding your yard. A wooden fence adds a certain element of elegance and aesthetic appeal that other fences simply cannot compete with. But whether you have an old fence that needs a little touch up, or you have just had a new fence installed, all wooden fences need to be annually stained. This will not only keep your fence looking its best, but it will also protect your fence from the harsh outdoor weather (rain, sun, snow, wind, etc.).
We’ve recently talked about wrought iron fencing and alternative materials that achieve the same look. Now for a look at which is best, we turn to this article.
Wrought iron may be classic, but there are a couple reasons why we recommend ornamental aluminum and steel instead. Iron can rust, and thus requires maintenance. Aluminum won’t rust and the treatment for steel prevents it from rusting. The other main consideration is price, because iron is much more expensive than the other two.

Probably the most popular alternative to wrought iron fencing is ornamental steel. It has all the strength and security you expect from steel but can be made to look just like a stylish wrought iron fence. The secret to its success is an electrostatically applied powder coating that protects the metal to keep it from rusting.
Many different styles of ornamental steel are available, and it comes in the colors of black, white, bronze, and dark green. The coating mentioned earlier allows the fencing to come with a 12-to-15-year-extended warranty. It’s truly the best option when it comes to achieving the look of wrought iron.

Another alternative to achieving the look of a wrought iron fence without the expense is ornamental aluminum. This article provides a good summary of the benefits and features of ornamental aluminum.
One drawback of wrought iron is that it can rust. Aside from being cheaper than wrought iron, ornamental aluminum won’t rust. Ornamental aluminum overall is very easy to maintain. It doesn’t require painting and can be easily cleaned by hosing it off.

Wrought iron fencing is a gold standard for fences that look good and also offer quality security. However, the expensive handwork that wrought iron requires is a significant deterrent for many people. One effective alternative is cast iron fencing, which is explained on this page.
Cast iron fencing employs premade fence panels that were formed by pouring molten iron into molds. Once the panels are made, installing the fence is a matter of sinking posts, and attaching the panels to the posts. It’s less expensive than wrought iron but looks just like wrought iron and is just as strong.
If you’re looking for wrought iron alternatives, you should also consider ornamental aluminum and steel. Contact us, and we’ll be happy to go over the options open to you and help you figure out which work best for you.
