Posted on April 8, 2016 by Lone Star Fence & Construction

Wrought iron fencing has been popular for many years. When you are looking to have a fence built for your home or business, there are some various things that you need to know.

Why is wrought iron the best choice?

There are many benefits of wrought iron and a company can discuss them with you. When you look at all of the different options for fencing materials, wrought iron is desirable because of its ability to resist corrosion. This gives you a worn metal look that is stylish, without having to worry about rust after being in the rain. Additionally, it has a low fatigue rate, so it can actually withstand more weathering than many wood fences, which is important given the state you are in.

What styles of fencing can I get?

When you look at wrought iron fencing, you can choose fences where the posts are close together or far apart. It is all a matter of whether you are focused on aesthetics or security. By understanding the different types of fences, you can ensure you choose one that works well for your home or business.

Is it possible to get an automated gate?

Whether you are using the fence for your home or business, it is possible to explore automated gates. This can make the gates more convenient and more secure. This will ensure they are closed at all times and will only open for the people who are allowed entry – such as the owners and anyone the owners approve to get inside.

An automated gate can be a single or a double gate based upon whether it is a pedestrian gate or one that vehicles will drive through.

What are the costs involved?

The costs involved with wrought iron fencing can be higher than wood, though not considerably more. Much of the costs will depend on the amount of customization, the height of the fence, as well as whether you are choosing an automated gate. It is always a good idea to call a few fence companies to get an estimate so you can be confident you are getting the best price.

How long does it take to install the fencing?

It generally does not take a long time to install a fence. Most companies will be able to install within a week or two. It often depends on how much fencing is being installed as well as the availability of materials. When you call a company to get a price estimate, it’s also advisable to find out how long it will take them to have it completely installed once you give them the go ahead to start construction. This will allow you to add it to your calendar so you can look forward to seeing it completed by a certain date.
