Wrought Iron Fencing is a Great Way to Protect Your Property : Wrought iron fencing was very versatile as it could be used along with other types of fencing to create even more protection. There were wrought iron fences that were used with brick that would look very stately in front of a home. Many would choose an ornate wrought iron fence to make their home look grandiose. This type of fencing enjoyed popularity for centuries. This type of fencing fell out of style in the early 1900s. It was easier to produce nice looking fences out of different materials and alloys. Wrought iron fell out of favor due to the ease and cost of making these cheaper fences that looked just as good to some. You would only be able to get them if you purchased old wrought iron and restored it.
Selecting a Fence Selecting the right fence for you will depend on what you want the fence to do for you. Are you after privacy, do you need security, are you going for decoration, do you need a fence to contain pets or children or do you simply need a perimeter demarcation line? Often youll find you need a mix of all the above options rather than a straight forward simple selection. With this in mind we can evaluate which common fences may be best for you.

Any type of fence that is wanted can be made out of wrought iron. This is because wrought iron fences are made by hand for each order. This means that any type of home can have a fence in any dimension that is wanted. This type of diversity is not common with other types of fence. Of course, this diversity comes with a price tag that is a bit higher, but the ease of care and longevity of the fence makes up for this price.
