Fighting against corrosion is a never-ending job when it comes to metal but Hercules Fence can custom design you an ornamental fence that can hold itself up against the elements.
Wrought iron fencing is excellent to use for any type of property. It is strong, nontoxic and it prevents your ornamental fence from rotting or burning. Wrought iron is a perfect material for custom design of railings, fences, fence gates and more.
You can fight against the red dust villain we call corrosion in the following ways:
You can keep a wrought iron fence and wrought iron gate looking fresh with a once a year touch up. Every five years, have the fence and gate sand and have a fresh coat put on as well.
An oil-based metal paint will provide your fence and gate the maximum durability.

Which wrought fencing is best?
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.

The ornamental steel option
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.
