Wrought Iron Restoration — for Authentic Conservation of Historic Structures

Are you missing sections of your historic wrought-iron fence?  Has your wrought iron gate seen better days due to vandalism or abuse?  Would you like a wrought-iron entry door for security that matches the character of your neighborhood?

True wrought iron is required for the authentic conservation of historic structures.  Burt Aarsen can recreate your wrought-iron fence, gates, and entry doors to meet the strictest architectural guidelines in your historic neighborhood.

What is Wrought Iron?

Wrought iron is an iron alloy with a very low carbon content, in comparison to steel, and has fibrous inclusions, known as slag. This is what gives it a "grain" resembling wood, which is visible when it is etched or bent to the point of failure. Wrought iron is tough and impervious to rusting.  It will only rust down to the iron silicate and then stop.

Wrought Iron is No Longer Produced on a Commercial Scale

Wrought iron is no longer produced on a commercial scale. Many products described as wrought iron, such as guard rails, garden furniture and gates, are made of mild steel. They retain that description because they were formerly made of wrought iron or have the appearance of wrought iron.  True wrought iron is required for the authentic conservation of historic structures.   So, if you desire to restore your historic wrought iron fences and gates, then your only option is to get a custom solution.
