The Cost Estimate of Painting A Wrought Iron Fence

Are you considering giving your wrought iron fence or railing a new look? Updating the appearance of your fence can be as easy as applying a few coats of paint – but do you know how much you will spend painting your fencing made of wrought iron in Toronto? We’ll go over the cost of fencing per foot, wrought iron fence parts, and the cost of a necessary repair just so you’ll be prepared and have a budget planned.

Why should you have a wrought iron fence?

There are many reasons why fences of this style are a popular choice among homeowners. They can bring a classic sense of elegance to the exterior of a home. Plus, there are many different designs you can choose from as well. They can work with a variety of different exterior home styles too.

Another element that people appreciate about them is an added sense of security. Plus, if you keep up with the care and repair, fences made of wrought iron hold up nicely over the years as well.

1. Replacing

How much is the wrought iron fence price per foot? If you don’t have a one but are considering buying one to give your property a unique and elegant curb appeal, usually you will spend about $40/linear foot when you are buying in Toronto. With so many styles to choose from, you may find one that is designed beautifully but isn’t quite the colour you want – but remember you can always paint your fencing as well!

2. Painting

The cost of painting your fencing depends on how much wrought iron fence you have. If you are going to do it yourself, you’ll save some money for sure. You’ll just need to buy painting supplies, primer and paint, which could cost anywhere from $50 – $150 total. For your basic metal primer and rust inhibitor job. If you have a job that requires more supplies such as: a multi-coloured or glossy finish you could spend approximately $220+.

3. Repairing

You want to paint your fencing, but first you need to sand away any rust or chipped paint, or even replace a piece of it. You may need to pay for the cost of the products needed or even be required to invest your own time to prep before they begin the repair to your wrought iron. You’ll just pay for supplies.

For example, you’ll likely need a rust neutralizer to get rid of that chipped or rusted paint. Or you can go the DIY route and combine a mixture of lemon juice and vinegar (half each) and go in with a wire brush.

If the fencing itself needs repair work, it’s hard to say just how much this can cost. But more than likely you have a few of these items laying around the house so you could spend anywhere from $10 – $100 to acquire some or all of these items.

What if this type of fencing isn’t quite your thing? 

Maybe you’re looking to go another way with your fencing at home. That’s okay! There are all sorts of options. There’s chain link fencing, which was quite popular in the early 90’s. For some, it might be the more economical option. For others though, you really can’t beat a beautiful wooden fence. It looks super traditional and always complements a house’s exterior. And if you want, there are all sorts of fence painting and staining options for you to choose from. What’s really fun these past few years is that fence painting of all colours have become increasingly popular. You can go with a modern gray for your fence paint, like Thundercloud grayBrowns have also been huge this past season as well. Check out Tucker Chocolate if you’re looking for a rich chocolatey brown.
