The difference between wrought iron gates and wood gates

If you’re thinking about installing a gate onto your property, then you’re probably considering the different material options that you have. Two of the more popular types of gate materials include wrought iron and wood. Here are the differences that you should keep in mind before making a choice:

  • Wrought iron gates are more resistant to wear and tear. The elements can wreck havoc on a wooden gate over time, thereby diminishing its look as well as its function. A wood gate can not only be more easily damaged, but it can also experience rot, mold and insect problems – all of which won’t affect a wrought iron gate.
  • Wood gates are easier to break into. Wood as a material is simply more vulnerable than wrought iron. An intruder or thief will have an easier time breaking through the wood gate or climbing over it.
  • Although wood has a classic beauty to it, wrought iron offers an element of elegance that is unmatched.
