Many homes feature fences these days, but not many have ornamental wrought iron fencing to complement their property. Sure, the popular choices are vinyl and wood, but don’t discount the security, durability and beauty of wrought iron. Check out these six benefits of wrought iron fences for your home.

1.     Security

Security is a top concern for many homeowners. When it comes to installing gates and fencing, wrought iron is the ideal material to offer the utmost in security for your property. Having a sturdy fence around the perimeter of your property will act as a deterrent to intruders. You could also add automatic openers on your wrought iron gates to enhance security and convenience.

2.     Easy Installation

Many wrought iron manufacturers design and manufacture their fencing in panels, meaning they’re easy to install by a professional. This equals a quick, efficient job that can provide you with a brand new fence in as little as one day.

3.     Ease of Maintenance

The initial cost of your wrought iron fence will be a bit higher than other materials, but you will recoup that cost later on in low maintenance costs. Requiring very little maintenance and cleaning, you can’t say this about wood. When you do need to clean it, all you need is a wire brush, water, and a new coat of paint if your fence happens to be painted. And if your fence experiences minor damage, it can easily be fixed without replacement.

4.     Adds Elegance and Value

In addition to security and peace of mind, wrought iron also adds value and elegance to your property. No other material can do the same. Known as one of the most versatile materials when it comes to gates and fencing, wrought iron boosts your curb appeal and your property value.

5.     Durability

Wrought iron is longer lasting and more durable than any other type of fencing material like wood or vinyl. A wrought iron fence will stand up well against day-to-day wear and tear as well as unexpected damage such as impacts by balls or even vehicles. Due to this durability and elegance, wrought iron is one of the most popular choices when it comes to fencing.

6.     Variety of Design Options

Wrought iron is available in a wide spectrum of shapes and designs, giving you the freedom to choose what best suits your home’s style. You can also have your design custom made for a one-of-a-kind look.

In the end, while wrought iron is a bit more expensive than other fencing materials, it still remains the preferred choice for many of today’s discriminating homeowners due to its numerous benefits.
