When Should You Consider Wrought Iron Fence Repair?

When Should You Consider Wrought Iron Fence Repair?

Most people think that when rust starts to occur or when fencing gets broken, they have to replace everything. While it may make sense to replace a piece of the fencing, you may be able to fix it, so it doesn’t cost as much. Wrought iron fence repair may not seem possible, but it can be, as long as it’s not too damaged.

Problems Associated With Fences

Primarily, the fencing you choose has to be able to withstand pressures, weather and wear and tear of time. Most fences can handle these things fairly well, but when damage does happen, a professional should be contacted as soon as possible. They’ll be able to tell you whether or not it can be fixed or if you should replace that section.

Rust

The best thing to do for rust is to prevent it from happening. You can do this by painting the fencing every few years, as recommended by the manufacturer. If you do notice rust, you’ll need to determine how badly the fencing is damaged, how much you can spend on fixing it and what type of damage you have.

For example, if rust is just beginning, there may be no durability issue. If it is starting to rot or fall apart, repairing it won’t be cost-effective. However, a simple coat of paint isn’t enough. It will probably need to be sandblasted, or power washed, washed with non-ionic detergent and may require the use of a rust converter and oil-based primer.

Breakage/Damage

If part of the fencing is broken or warped, that area may need to be replaced. However, If a post falls off, a new one can be welded into place.
