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. But life has a way of getting to us and making us forget small things like a fence you drive by every day or a railing your kids like to slide down. 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. So let’s talk about restoring your piece. (more…)

Balcony Rail Fencing from Hercules Custom Iron

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

The great thing about balcony rail fencing is the multitude of options you have when it comes to what kind of fence you want to install on your balcony. Let’s cover a few of your options for balcony rail fencing.

Aluminum

Aluminum fencing is used for tons of applications, and it’s just as good for balconies as it is for any other use. Aluminum can weather the elements outdoors, and is strong, lightweight and durable. Plus it comes in many different colors and styles, and as always, our powder coating treatment ensures it will last a long time.

Iron

Iron balcony rails evoke a majestic feel that makes for a classy, upscale balcony. When only the best will do, ornate iron balcony rails are the right choice.

Glass

Glass rails are great for balconies because they provide safety while keeping the view intact. They also have no open spaces, which provides better protection for small pets and children, and prevents a leg or arm from getting caught.

Why is it Important to Have a Deck Fence?

Friday, December 27th, 2013

Decks are a great place to entertain company, eat, sunbathe, or spend time with your family. If your deck isn’t ground level, it’s important to have a fence surrounding the deck.

 

Safety

Safety is always a priority that fences take care of. Even with decks that aren’t very high off the ground it’s important to have a fence. Though it might not be a far fall, it might be enough to injure someone, and all it takes is one false step. If you have pets, fences will keep them safe as well. If your dog chases after every squirrel that catches his eye, a fence will keep him from falling off the deck.

Aesthetic

In addition to safety, decks just look nicer with a fence. You can customize a deck fence to suit your tastes. Many decks are made out of wood, so a wood fence goes nicely with a wood deck. However, the deck fence doesn’t necessarily have to be wood. Glass panel railings provide just as much safety as a wood fence and give you a nice view as well.
