Ornamental Fences | Best Pick Reports
Ornamental iron is the traditional material for ornamental fence
construction. Ornamental iron fences are constructed from solid
pickets, rails, and posts, and they are extremely strong and durable.
Although iron is very heavy, relatively expensive, and requires regular
paint applications to prevent rust, its impressive visual appeal
continues to make it a popular choice.
Tubular aluminum fences can closely resemble ornamental iron fences
and gates. For a comparable number and thickness of pickets, railings,
and braces, these fences are much lighter than ornamental iron fences.
Because of its weight, tubular aluminum is popular for large gates.
Additionally, due to aluminum’s corrosion resistance, they are
maintenance free. Many manufacturers offer limited lifetime warranties
on the finish of the aluminum fence.
