Frequently Asked Questions - Ornamental Iron Fence

Q: Is ornamental iron the same as wrought iron?

A: No, it is not. Wrought iron was used a long time ago and has now morphed into ornamental iron. It is very rare to find a company that makes wrought iron.

Q: Why would someone want ornamental iron over a wood fence?

A: It often comes down to personal taste. There all also instances where a customer enjoys the view in their yard and prefers ornamental iron fencing, a style that leaves sight lines in tact while providing the security and safety of a fence.

Q: Is iron fencing suitable for a pool?

A: 100% - We have a lot of clients who want the look of iron to accent their new pool or enclose the area for safety reasons. Our iron fencing passes all pool codes in the Kitchener Waterloo area.

Q: Will the paint flake and peel off?

Q: Are all the iron fences made the same?  They look the same.

A: Believe it or not, they are all different. There are a good number of manufacturers out there and they all make their product differently. Manufacturers even paint differently.
