Why Choose Ornamental Steel Fencing

When you begin the process of finding which fence is best for you, it can be daunting. There are numerous options for fence materials and comparing each advantage and disadvantage can be time-consuming.

Luckily, we have done some of this research for you. Ornamental steel fencing provides security for any yard and is complementary to almost any existing aesthetic. With its affordable price, ornamental steel fencing is one of the top choices for many homeowners in Minnesota.

Read on to find out more about why you should choose ornamental steel fencing as it could be the fence of your dreams. Below you can find in-depth information about the secure nature of an ornamental steel fence, the cost of installation, and the maintenance that this fence type requires.

Ornamental Steel Fence Provides Security

The biggest reason we champion ornamental steel fences is because of the security that they can provide your home. Ornamental fencing will deter unwanted visitors, such as intruders or night-time animals, from entering your property.

Along with external security, ornamental fencing is a great option to provide a barrier between your yard and a busy street, a wooded area, or someone else’s property. This means that you can let your curious kids and energetic pets out into the yard without a worry they will wander off.

The main reason ornamental fences can provide great security is because of their durability and stability. They are hard to topple over, and the thick metal can’t be cut with wire cutters. The only real way to get through an ornamental fence is by climbing, but there is no foot or hand-holds to make this a viable option.

Ornamental fencing is a great option for both residential and commercial sites. It can help to protect your property as well as provide a clear property line for those who may need it. Without a fence, you are more likely to find intruders on your property.

The Cost of Installing Ornamental Steel

Like any fence, ornamental steel fences are not free. However, they are one of the more affordable options for those who may be on a budget. Ornamental steel fence gives you all the elegance of a vinyl fence and the affordable materials of a chain-link fence. It is a great middle ground.

The complete cost of ornamental steel fencing is a combination of the materials and the installation fees. Northland Fence of Apple Valley has a variety of payment plans available for our customers. We are sure to be able to find one that fits your budgetary needs.

The Cost of Materials

Like most other fences, the materials of an ornamental steel fence are the most expensive part. However, they are more affordable than other options. Because ornamental steel fencing is made from natural wrought iron steel, it can be mass-produced easily.

However, unlike other cast wrought iron products, ornamental steel is formed by hand. This means that it is more customizable than other steel fences, but again this would raise the total cost.

At Northland Fence of Apple Valley, we make it our mission to offer our customers professional-grade products at the lowest prices possible. We use our expert knowledge of the fencing industry to find the best prices for fence materials and buy them at discounted bulk rates. Then we can transfer these savings to our customers and make any fencing project affordable.

Installing an Ornamental Steel Fence

Ornamental steel fences are some of the hardest fence types to install. There are lots of moving pieces and small parts that you need to keep track of. It’s a complicated installation process that requires lots of tools, as well.

Professionals like Northland Fence of Apple Valley have the experience and expertise to understand the best installation techniques for ornamental steel fences. We can do it quickly and correctly to prevent making costly mistakes that damage the longevity and structural integrity of the fence.

Maintenance of an Ornamental Steel Fence

When thinking about the maintenance of a fence, most homeowners simply don’t have the time in their schedules to do extensive amounts of maintenance. This is why you should choose an ornamental steel fence.

Ornamental steel fencing is rust and weather-resistant and requires minimal maintenance. To clean it, there are no extra chemicals required, simply some soapy water or a pressure washer will be able to clean off dirt and debris.

We recommend conducting a maintenance check of your fence about once a year. This simply means walking the perimeter of your fence and checking for signs of damage. It can also be a good idea to do this after heavy storms or inclement weather. Ornamental steel fencing is durable and should not break or bend due to high winds and storms, but it’s always good to double-check for other damage.
