Most property owners install fences for security and privacy. However, most fences usually end up reducing visibility and the aesthetic value of properties instead of adding. Nevertheless, this is not the case with wrought iron fences. They provide good security and almost always make properties to look more elegant and stately. Below is what you need to know about wrought iron fences.
First, if well-installed, wrought iron fences can look quite imposing to potential intruders and spectacularly ornamental to those passing by. The sharp points on the top side of the fencing often deter potential intruders from climber over them, while intricate design usually makes it quite attractive. Wrought iron fences are usually designed with additional decorations to make them even prettier.
Second, wrought iron fences are easy to maintain. Why? Because they do not need much work. You see when other fences are weathered, they usually need some sort of maintenance work e.g. new painting or some repairs. However, when wrought iron fencing weathers, it becomes better. Not better like stronger but in terms of appearance. The beauty of wrought iron fencing usually increases when it gets weathered. And in terms of actual maintenance, you only need like to oil the moving parts regularly and to apply rust-proof coating if you want to maintain wrought iron fencing.
Third, wrought iron fences are typically pricey. This is because they are usually handcrafted and often include additional decorative designs. So most Ottawa fencing companies would typically charge more for them. However, some charge fair prices for well-made and installed wrought iron fencing. They include ABD IronWorld. So if you have some change in your pocket and you can afford to install this type of fencing around your home, go for it.
Lastly, wrought iron fences can be used with other types of fencing to improve the overall beauty, looks, visibility, and/ or toughness of the fencing. So you can use them with live plants, wooden fencing, concrete fencing, or brick fencing. They especially look stunning when used to provide extra support outside old hedge or tree fencing.
