Wrought iron fences combine strength, craftsmanship, longevity, and beauty, all in one barrier. They can add protection and a sense of elegance to virtually any property. However, homeowners and property managers have many decisions to make when installing any new fence, particularly one made of wrought iron. Here are a few questions to think about while researching options for your new wrought iron fence. Remember, the experts at Hercules Fence of Richmond are available to help you with all of your fencing needs!
What is the Purpose of Your Wrought Iron Fence?
The first question you must ask yourself relates to the purpose of your new structure. Is your new fence designed for security, to outline a property line, or simply add some beauty to your landscape? Would you like your fence to accomplish all three? Think hard about what you expect of your new barrier, then work with a fencing contractor to design a wrought iron fence accordingly. The purpose you choose for your new fence will be the starting point for nearly all of your decisions.
What Style Would You Like?
When many folks think of wrought iron, they imagine intricate scrollwork and formidable iron bars. However, wrought iron fences come in many different styles, heights, and finishes. Think about your property’s architecture and style when exploring the different fencing options available to you. The height you choose will likely depend on a few different factors, and you may find that you prefer a design with simple lines to a classic fence with elaborate ironwork. Your fencing contractor will be able to help you determine which options would look best and allow your barrier to meet your needs.
Do You Need Gates or Other Added Features?
Lastly, consider any additional features you may need or want. Gates, both automated and traditional, can be incredibly useful for wrought iron fences. Spirals, finials, and other decorative elements are also very popular, and you will have to think about the types of decorations you would like. Some folks choose fences with smaller “dog panels” running along the bottom for an added barrier for small animals, and anti-climb fixtures are an option for those who want them. Regardless of the bells and whistles you choose for your wrought iron fence, the team at Hercules Fence of Richmond is here to help!
