Is your wrought iron showing its age, rusting, or peeling paint in places? Perhaps it’s even beginning to crumble in weight-bearing areas or where welds were made.
While wrought iron is virtually indestructible under normal circumstances, the New Orleans humidity and harsh weather conditions can cause rust to corrode even the strongest ornamental iron.
Proper maintenance and care can prevent rust, but it isn’t always possible to keep up with a maintenance schedule with buildings changing hands and other life obligations leaving ironwork maintenance dead last on your never-ending “to-do” list.
If you’ve started seeing corrosion on your iron works, call us today for New Orleans iron repairs you can count on. Left unrepaired, wrought iron will eventually crumble, causing a safety and health hazard for those nearby. But when carefully restored, wrought iron can be returned to its former glory and set to last for the ages.
If you’ve noticed your New Orleans iron works starting to show concerning wear or degradation, call us today and we’ll send out one of our local team members to take a closer look.
Our team can effectively and accurately evaluate the state of your wrought iron and determine whether a professional’s help is necessary: for example, if painting alone is needed, you may be able to do the repairs yourself. If anything more complex is necessary, however, our tools and expertise may be recommended.

Your New Orleans ornamental iron is rusting. Some online guides offer instructions on repairing wrought iron yourself; and, truth be told, you’re not even sure repairing it is a priority. Why should you call us?
First, if you have true wrought iron, incorrectly repairing it yourself could damage or surface level repairs that don’t resolve the underlying problem. When properly cared for, your wrought iron should last hundreds of years; improperly cared for, your investment could crumble in months. It’s a worthwhile investment to hire a professional if you’d like to keep your wrought iron long-term.
Rust doesn’t just affect the outer appearance of iron; if allowed to spread, rust can affect the structural integrity of your plantation fence, railing, mailbox, or other iron structure.
Even if you aren’t concerned about short-term structural damage to a portion of your fence or railing, the long-term cost should cause concern. If you eventually would like to repair your fence (or sell your home), you’ll need to either repair or replace the rusted iron. Rust that has progressed far enough will prevent an effective repair and require an entire (expensive) replacement.
Finally, exposed, rusting iron is a safety hazard. If you or someone you love is not up-to-date on the tetanus vaccine, a cut from brushing against rusted metal could infect you with lockjaw. Only about half of tetanus patients survive exposure.
If your cast iron fence starts to rust, it’s critical that you call a professional to repair it. Not only will it improve the appearance of your fence or balcony, but it will restore its structure, saving you money, and protecting those you love from health and safety risks.
