What is wrought iron?
In technical terms, wrought iron is an iron alloy with a very low carbon content (in contrast to cast iron, which has a lower carbon content and a more fragile composition; this makes iron an excellent medium for shaping). Wrought iron can no longer be mass produced owing to cost concerns and production advancements. Generally speaking, iron refers to any iron (most often mild steel) that has been hammered, twisted, or bent into shape-or appears to have been.
Nowadays, wrought iron is regarded as a valuable commodity. Welded ironwork is usually forged by hand, so small irregularities (and hammer marks) are apparent and appreciated as proof of the smith’s skill. Even though there may still be a few small ironsmiths creating solid wrought iron work, they are hard to find and expensive.
- Long Lasting: Among the many advantages of iron is its durability. This material does not rot, warp, or dry out like wood does.
- Strong: Fences made from iron are much stronger than those made from other materials. Due to its hardness, wrought iron fences provide better security than many other fences.
- Good Visibility: Rails are spaced apart in designs with iron fencing, giving them a thin appearance that highlights the backdrop.
- Elegant, Classic Style: Wrought iron is an elegant fence material that can be customized to be as simple or ornate as you like.
- Pest Resistant: Rodents that burrow in wood and other damaging pests are not able to damage wrought iron.
How much do wrought iron fences cost in Irvine?
Fencing made from high-quality wrought iron is among the most cost-effective. Over time, a long-lasting expense will become more cost-effective. Because wrought iron fencing has such a wide range of classifications, the price also varies widely. A typical iron fence costs $30 to $40 per foot (about twice as much as wood). Adding custom work can raise the figure tenfold (up to $300 per foot). Installation is also important. Wrought iron is heavy, and it should be carefully installed to ensure longevity. Labor-intensive processes are involved. In addition to your geographic location, soil conditions, and the degree of customization you need, the cost will also vary. If you are building a fence, be sure to mark the underground utility lines to avoid complications.
How do you care for a wrought iron fence?
As long as it is handled gently, this durable and heavy fencing material can withstand a lot of abuse for many years. Over time, rust will form on wrought iron, especially in moist or harsh environments. By removing rust with sandpaper and applying a protective coating, these rust spots can easily be dealt with and fixed. Inspections and maintenance should be performed annually. A full re-paint is likely to be necessary every 10 to 15 years. There is no reason to be concerned about rust. If the material were left unattended for many years, it would weaken structurally (and some might appreciate the rust patina).
Are wrought iron lookalikes worth considering?
Beware of imitations. The wrought iron fencing may not contain any iron at all, even if it is referred to as such. There are materials that resemble iron and are worth considering: for example, aluminum. Although ornamental aluminum costs less than wrought iron, it has the same aesthetic appearance as iron. With this material, it is lighter, easier to install, and weather-resistant. What are the shortcomings of substitutes? Welded iron is durable (can dent), strong, and has a beautiful patina.
