Iron Fence, Does It Rust? – (Part I)
You’re almost done, you’ve almost made it, just a few more hours and your home’s new iron fence will be finished. Phew! After almost a month of researching fences, sourcing installers, getting quotes, and receiving additional job costs, the fence will be finished and life can return to its usual course.
The fence looks good and everyone is commending you on it’s clean look. Things are looking up! You think to yourself, thank goodness this project came together.
Fast forward three months, you just pulled into the driveway after a long day of work. As you get out of your car and start walking down the driveway towards your mailbox, you notice something on the fence. You change course and bee line for the fence, there appears to be a yellow liquid dripping at it’s corner. Grazing your hand past the surface of this golden, chalk-like substance, you quickly identify it as rust. ”
Rust? Rust!” You start to yell, “but how?” The panic sets in as you glance down the fence-line and see additional lines of the golden substance dripping throughout the fence.
