A strong fence is the backbone of any suitable property. It provides security, privacy and can also act as a decorative element for your yard. But with so many types to choose from, it’s hard to know what kind of fence will be best for you. In this blog post, we’ll cover everything you need to know about backyard wrought iron fences how they’re priced, what materials are used in the construction, and some tips on avoiding costly mistakes when having them built. Let’s get started!
Types of Materials
First, let’s talk about the different materials you can use when building a fence. There are many to choose from, and each has its advantages and disadvantages. Iron fencing is one of the most common types in backyards today because it offers an elegant look with high durability. Wood fences are another excellent choice as they’re relatively inexpensive compared to iron or brick but still provide decent privacy for your yard. Finally, chain link fencing is ideal if you have children at home who might play around the backyard unattended since it allows for excellent visibility while being very durable. Finally, wrought iron or steel fencing is a perfect option if you want something even more vital than a chain link because it’s very durable and requires little maintenance.
Wrought iron fencing is a very popular choice for homeowners because it’s sturdy, easy to maintain, and inexpensive compared with other types of fences. With this blog post, you’ll have all the information you need on iron fence construction, installation costs, safety concerns, and more.
Before we go, though, I just want to mention that if you’re thinking about wrought iron fences, you should consider iron gates as well. Gates are an essential part of iron fencing because they provide access to your property.
Finding The Right Contractor
Now let’s talk about things to avoid when building a fence yourself or hiring fence contractors in general: first of all, never try to build an iron or steel fence on your own without any experience. It’s a challenging job. It will be impossible to get the iron bars perfectly straight, leading to serious injury if anyone runs into them. You’re also at risk of being fined by the city for building an improperly installed iron or steel gate. Second, never hire contractors who promise to build your fence cheaply. It’s easy to save money by cutting corners, but it usually leads to an inferior product that doesn’t last as long or look as nice, so in the end, you’ll spend more than if you had just paid for a well-made iron or steel fence/gate from day one.
Ok, now let’s say you’ve decided to hire a contractor. What should you look for in a professional? Well, first of all, make sure they have experience building fences and have an established reputation so that the contractor will build your fence correctly the first time around. It also doesn’t hurt if their staff is friendly since it’ll help ensure they’re not too rude to you or your neighbors. And finally, make sure they have all the necessary permits and liability insurance as required by the customer or local area so that you don’t get fined for construction done without proper authorization.
Pricing For Iron Fence
Now that you know everything there is to wrought iron, it’s time for the most critical question of all: how much will it cost? That depends on many factors ranging from the area (how big your property is), materials used (iron vs. steel; primed or black powder-coated finish, number, and height of iron bars), customization options (custom size or color), etc. Iron fencing usually costs around $70-$120 per running linear foot, including railings. Again it’s crucial to remember that the price of iron fencing and wrought iron gates is usually determined by how much customization you want and where you live (if your contractor has a lot of previous jobs in your area). That means if you’re not too picky and you live in a place where iron or metal is not too expensive, your fence could be very cheap. If, on the other hand, you want something unique or you’re located somewhere with high iron prices, your iron fencing might cost $250-$350 per linear foot.
Iron fences are an excellent choice for homeowners or businesses who like elegant-looking iron fences and iron gates. They’re also a perfect choice for those who want to save money on construction costs since iron is much cheaper than steel but still provides excellent strength, security, and durability with very little maintenance required.
