Installing a Wrought Iron Fence on a Hill or Slope

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Iron fences can still be installed over hills and slopes.

You might be surprised to learn that most landscapes are not, in fact, flat! Chances are your yard has some level of grade to it, whether it’s a slight variation or a complete hillside. This can have some impact on the process of installing a wrought iron fence. Some manufacturers choose to use a fence panel that bends in accordance with the grade of your yard, but this is not the most ideal solution.

Panels that can ‘rack’ up and down a grade tend to have a weaker weld that will bend. This ends up decreasing the overall strength of the panel. Iron that bends usually causes the finish to pop off as well, leaving your fence vulnerable and susceptible to rust. (more…)

Rust can be a real pain, but we know exactly what to do!

Just like anything else involving a home, iron fences are not something that can be bought and forgotten about. Over the months and years of owning a piece of custom iron work, it is important to give it the regular maintenance of cleaning and making sure no rust is growing on the metal.

So now after years of forgetfulness, your once beautiful custom piece is now dull and rusted. Rust can severely damage your iron fence if left to its own devices.

The Benefits of Iron Fences

Friday, October 18th, 2013

Custom iron fencing is our specialty here at Hercules Custom Iron, and we believe it’s one of the best options you can go for when selecting a new fence. Let’s talk about the many benefits of iron fences.

 

Visual Appeal

For starters, wrought iron fences have a visual appeal that’s hard to beat. These fences can be customized into any design or pattern, giving them an ornate and intricate appearance that other fences such as chain link fences just don’t have. Black is the typical color for an iron fence, but with our powder coating, we can provide iron fencing in several other classy colors as well.

Strength

Don’t let its looks fool you, iron fencing is strong and built to last. Unlike wood fences which are susceptible to rotting, iron fences can take plenty of abuse from the elements. The only maintenance that’s require is usually a refinishing every few years.

Security

Iron fences provide great security due to their combination of strength and their ornate qualities. Iron fences can often be designed with spikes on the top, which look great, and also serve as a deterrent for anyone considering climbing the fence. Iron fences are also inherently difficult to climb due to the thin nature of the posts.

The Benefits of Wrought Iron Fencing

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

Wrought iron fencing has been around for a long time, and for good reason. Wrought iron fencing offers several benefits that give it an edge over other types of fencing. So if you’re considering installing a new fence in your yard, here are a few very good reasons why wrought iron is the way to go.

wrought iron fence benefits

Durability

Wrought iron is both strong and long lasting, making it a great investment for your home. Unlike wood or plastic fences which are more susceptible to wear and tear, wrought iron will last a lifetime and more. They require less maintenance than other fences as well, and some even prefer the look that comes with natural aging, which brings us to the next point.

Visual Appeal

Wrought iron conjures up images of old elegant buildings from the 19th century surrounded by an equally stately wrought iron fence. Wrought iron fences are a great way to give a classy look to your property and give it an interesting historical dynamic.

Design Options

There are many popular options for decorative wrought iron fencing, and customization is also available. From family crests to initials, there’s no shortage of options for personalization.
