Today we are out installing some ornamental iron fence in Waterloo. Ornamental iron is a great fencing option when keeping your view is a higher priority that creating privacy.
Our main supplier for this style of fencing is Medallion Fence. They are known as one of the leaders in the iron fencing industry - that's the main reason why we install and promote their top quality products. There are several manfacturers of ornamental iron fencing, but not all offer the quality and durability of Medallion.
To start, Medallion manufactures their product with a FULL channel top and bottom rail, providing higher levels of strength. Products from other companies have a U-channel or small gap making the top and bottom rails incomplete or "open". Without the completely closed rail your ornamental iron fence sections may sag over time.
Another attribute that sets this product apart is the size of both the pickets and rails. The rails (cross pieces) are 1 1/4" across while the pickets are 5/8" across . This translates into 25% more steel then the industry standard. And Medallion backs up their product with a 20-year warranty.
Whether it's just a gate for your wood fence or fencing around the whole backyard, with various styles to choose from you can customize the appearance and find the exact look you want for your yard. Give us a call for a free estimate if ornamental iron fencing is on your to-do list this summer.
