What is ornamental fencing?
Ornamental fencing is an elegant fencing style that used to be made of wrought iron, but can be manufactured using other metals like aluminum and steel. Centuries ago, it was blacksmiths working the iron into fencing. The manufacturing process has modernized and fencing contractors like First Class Fencing in Calgary can design and produce an ornamental fence much easier and faster. Even with more efficient production and installation, durability and aesthetics are just as great as they were back then. With ornamental fences, you don’t have to compromise strength and function for style. You’ll get all three.

Longevity: An ornamental fence can pass the test of time with little to no maintenance required. Unlike a wood fence, that needs to be stained or painted, your ornamental fence will fair the weather without losing its aesthetic appeal.
Security: Ornamental fences are strong. They deter intruders because of their strength and because it’s nearly impossible to climb. A classic ornamental fence has a sharp point on the upward of every slat, which is very discouraging to fence jumpers. If you’re concerned about security, choosing a fence style that has thicker and taller pickets can make the fence even stronger. There’s a reason this type fencing is used to protect multi-million-dollar properties.
Added Value: An ornamental fence is a high-end enhancement to your home. It will boost your curb appeal and make your home more attractive to potential buyers if you decide to sell. An ornamental fence installation can add resale value to your home and give a good return on investment over time.
