Here at Cheshire Metalcraft, we like to help our clients come to a decision regarding a new gate investment by providing them with the appropriate information from an unbiased point of view. After all, we may be proud of our extensive product range but that doesn’t mean that we don’t put our customers and their individual requirements first. Read on as we go over some of the pros and cons of investing in wrought iron gates…

Pros of Wrought Iron Gates

Strength: When it comes to wrought iron, it is hard to deny that they are incredibly durable. In fact, a gate made from wrought iron can last for decades at a time when manufactured properly and afforded with regular maintenance, as per its requirements. After all, that is why there are so many wrought iron fences from the 19th and 20th century that are still standing today.

Aesthetics: Aside from their durability guarantee, wrought iron gates also offer an aesthetic benefit too. In fact, they are gracefully designed and are the perfect addition to any exterior for homeowners that are looking for a brilliant blend of elegance and appeal.

Cons Of Wrought Iron Gates

Rust: With this said, wrought iron is a material that is prone to rusting when it isn’t afforded the appropriate level of maintenance and care it requires. After all, it is important that a wrought iron gate is regularly coated with a protective sealant in order to protect it from the brutality of mother nature. Luckily, it is more than possible for a wrought iron gate to never be afflicted with serious rust issues with the right care.

Rare: Another problem with wrought iron is the sheer lack of availability of the material. After all, there aren’t many manufactures who are still crafting high-quality fencing and gates made from wrought iron in 2019. As a result, it can be easier for property owners to invest in a cheaper and more readily available material like aluminium or wood instead.

Although we believe that our wrought iron range is the best on the market, we recognise the importance of helping each client on a case-by-case basis. After all, not every property is going to benefit from a material like wrought iron and we recognise that there are many different aspects, such as exterior décor and client preferences, to take into consideration.
