Iron Wrought in El Paso
Driving down the streets of El Paso, whether on the west side or through the northeast, you’ll notice that stores and restaurants alike use wrought iron to decorate their buildings. From windows and doors to gates and interior decor, wrought iron has become a staple in the Sun City. At Atrium Wrought Iron, we create custom designed wrought iron windows and doors that are perfect for any home or business.
Best Materials for El Paso
El Paso’s hot, dry climate makes an ideal place for wrought iron designs. Wrought iron is durable and can withstand days upon days of heat, wind, and even rain. If you’re a new homeowner and are looking to upgrade the look of your home, wrought iron is the way to go.
El Paso is also a prime candidate for other materials, such as steel or aluminum. Many people in the Sun City tend to be hesitant to purchase steel designs for their doors and windows because they believe they’ll become too hot when out in the sun or heat for long periods of time. This isn’t true. While the steel may get warm, it won’t be too hot to touch. Steel and aluminum both look and feel great, but they tend to be more expensive than wrought iron. Depending on your budget and the desired look you are going for, we can help you decide what material will work best for you and your El Paso home.
Taking Care of Your Wrought Iron Doors and Windows
Wrought iron doors and windows are fairly simple to clean and maintain. You can wash wrought iron with a vegetable-based soap and water and dry it with a hose. To remove rust, you’ll also have to remove some of the paint, so this is something that should only be done if you’re willing to invest in a new paint job. You can scrape off rust, and even chipping paint, with a wire metal brush. If you go with this option, be sure to add a primer before you paint. Regular maintenance will ensure your wrought iron doors and windows last a long time.
