VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - December 14, 2016) - Vancouver isn't known as the Rain Coast for nothing. As fencing repair and installation specialists, QS Fencing has recently published a blog strongly advising homeowners to consider decorative aluminum fencing over iron fencing.
Although the charm of ornamental wrought iron can't be denied, aluminum offers almost all the benefits of wrought iron-without the headaches.
The exquisite embellishments of wrought iron can endow homes with a historic and timeless character-but upkeep is always a challenge. Iron rusts, and home keepers with these types of fences need to repeatedly coat the fence with a protective wax. Additionally, a fencing repair and maintenance company should be brought in every four-to-five years to treat the fences with a protective sealant.
Regular inspection is necessary, even if the fence is sealed, to ensure rust or other problems do not set in. One can repair rust spots by rubbing the affected area with steel wool or sandpaper, then applying a wax or anti-rust coating to stop the corrosion. A small bit of rust will continue to grow if left unchecked and compromise the integrity of the fence.
And once the rust becomes extensive, fence repair for iron becomes a time-consuming and expensive job.
By contrast, aluminum fences are corrosion-free, which means they're naturally low maintenance. For people who want the beauty and distinction of a metal fence-without the headache and maintenance, aluminum is the obvious choice.
