However, this is only possible if you have the best fence installation and fence repair team to take care of the work for you. But that’s not something you need to worry about with us around.
The term "wrought iron" comes from the past tense form of the verb to work. Throughout time, many historic forms of the English language have fallen of use and after a long period of time the word "wrought" became replaced by "worked." So, in a literal sense, the term "wrought iron" means "worked iron."
Before the developments of modern steel-making, wrought iron was the most commonly used form of malleable iron. This means that unlike cast iron, wrought iron is not as brittle. Wrought iron has a lower carbon content, which makes it harder and stronger yet easier to weld. At its peak, wrought iron was used in the manufacturing of nearly everything, all over the world.
Due to its malleability and toughness, wrought iron has been coveted for thousands of years. In ancient times, blacksmiths were considered to be as equally important as the local doctor, because as the doctor kept the people healthy, the blacksmith kept the town moving. To many people, the blacksmith's ability to transform a seemingly coarse, hard material into something of breathtaking beauty was magical.
