Wrought iron fences and gates provide creative and attractive alternatives to traditional cement or wooden barriers for homes. It is more durable and will bring an aesthetically pleasing quality to your home. However, there is a trade off that comes with these desirable qualities! Wrought iron fences and gates require more attention and care from the owner than some of the other fencing materials. It is important to know how to keep your fences and gates looking beautiful and working well. With winter approaching, it is important to learn how to care for and maintain your new wrought iron boundaries if you want them to last.
In Arizona, the winter months can be cool and sometimes wet. Most wrought iron fences are now made out of steel rather than iron, making them more affordable and durable. Steel is still susceptible to rust though, and it requires some care. One way to prevent weather from damaging your beautiful fencing is to apply a protective product, such as car wax, can help prevent corrosion and rust from damaging the metal. Also, something as simple as covering your gate or fence with a tarp during one of the few winter rain storms Arizona gets will save you time and money in repairs.
The mostly dry and warm climate of Arizona is perfect for having a wrought iron fence or gate around your home. The bountiful amounts of sunshine make cleaning the gates easy in comparison to the more humid climates across the rest of the country. To clean the metal work, use a mixture of warm water and dish soap. You only need to wipe the metal clean of dirt and other things that could cause corrosion. The plentiful warmth from the sun will dry the metal work without any help from you, making your job much easier.
Wrought iron work can add a beauty and value to your property that few other things will.

Wrought iron fencing is a popular option for many people. Rather than having a solid wall of fence around the home or business, wrought iron fencing provides an attractive alternative that allow for more visibility while still providing boundaries. If you are considering a wrought iron fence for your yard, be sure to investigate the quality of the fence before you make a final decision. Not all fence materials are created equal, choose high quality fencing that will last longer, and provide years of service. No other type of fencing combines customized options, beauty and strength like wrought iron fencing.
While they are still referred to as “wrought iron” fences, these types of fences are rarely made out of wrought iron today. Instead, they are often made of steel with a wrought iron design, which is more affordable. The grade of metal makes a big difference in the lifetime of the fence. Most wrought iron fences look identical when new, but within a few years the level of quality will begin to show.
Low quality fences will begin to rust within just a few years. Typically these fences are made with low quality steel and are only galvanized on one side, leaving the other side (typically the inside) vulnerable to rusting. When shopping for a fence, be sure to choose a design that includes galvanized steel on both sides of the fence. In addition, look for a high zinc rating, as this is a sign of better quality metal. Powder coating or electro statically painting your fencing opens up a variety of color choices to best match your property and design aesthetic.
Construction quality of the fence is another important consideration. Choose a company based on a number of factors, not price alone. Take into consideration references, experience, and written guarantees. For your own protection take the time to speak to existing customers and also take the time to view the potential contractors’ work. Ask about the company’s construction standard details (it is a red flag if they have few or none). A company with detailed plans and an organized crew is more likely to deliver a quality product that you can depend on for years to come.
