What People Have to Say about Our Iron Fence Projects
I got a timely response to my request for estimate; he made an appointment and showed up when expected, asked questions about what type of fence I wanted, told me what to expect for when they could do the job (they were very busy). I received the estimate with full details within the expected time, they answered any questions I had…they showed up when promised, removed old fence and hauled it away, put in new fence. – Angie’s List Review
I have contracted 4 other contractors during this time: one other about the fence, 3 about some roofing repairs. My experience with contractors has not been good: some don’t respond to requests for estimates, some don’t show up to look at the job, one didn’t respond when I accepted the estimate…F&W Fence Co was courteous, responsive and professional in every step, and a joy to work with. – Angie’s List Review
Our Detroit, OR Wrought Iron Fence Contractors FAQ
How much do iron fences cost per foot?
The cost does depend on the current pricing of the material, but at this time you can expect to spend about $35 per foot. This does not take into account the pricing variation due to the cost of the supporting pillars, gates, etc.
How do you fix a broken iron gate?
That depends on what’s wrong with it! If the structure itself is broken, new pieces can potentially be welded in. This may need to be done while the gate is off its hinges.
Are there other kinds of metal fences beyond wrought iron?
Yes, there are all kinds of modern options available, some of which provide more privacy than a traditional wrought iron design.
Is an iron fence cheaper than wood?
No, it is not. Iron is typically going to be several times more expensive than a wood fence.
How do you fix wrought iron without welding?
Epoxy may be an option, but short of welding, you cannot count of the fix you perform being able to stand the test of time. Rather than going this route, get a free quote to see what it will take to fix the problem correctly.
How do you maintain a wrought iron fence?
Every 10 years or so, plan to scrub and paint your iron fence to remove rust and prevent it from forming again. If you have a small fence, you may be able to use a quality spray paint. Otherwise, you may want to hire a professional painter for the work, as it will be time-consuming.
How long will a wrought iron fence last?
About 60 years. If well-maintained, perhaps it can last even longer.
