Fargo Iron Painting

Fargo Painting offers services for painting iron fencing, security doors, pool and perimeter fences, railing, decorative iron and patio furniture to name a few.  Utilizing proper preparation techniques and applying the right selection of quality primers and topcoats is paramount for this category.

First, remove any landscaping coming into contact with the iron (gravel, dirt, shrubs, tree branches, etc.). At this point, with all of the iron exposed, the process can begin.

Step #1 Clean and Abrade/Sand.
There are several ways to achieve this. The most effective ways are usually abrading with either sandpaper or using a scotch pad with water. The idea is to remove any surface contaminates such as dust/dirt, light rust and paint films that are UV burnt, oxidized, etc. The goal is to have a clean and ”open” surface in order for the materials to bond with the substrate. Larger areas of rust may need to be lessened with a grinder.

Step #2 Rinse.
Clean water must always be used for rinsing. A garden hose, clean water from a bucket or a light power washing can achieve this. The most common mistake in painting iron is to not have a clean and open surface prior to painting.

Step #3 Spot prime
After covering any areas to be protected, sections of remaining rust should be spot primed using a rust-inhibiting metal primer or equivalent. Iron will be forever attempting to rust, not just on the surface, but from the inside out as well. Using the correct primer before applying various paints to new or rusted iron will help prolong the life of your iron and your paint job.

Step #4 Painting
There is a large selection of quality products available in the marketplace rated for iron. There are also several application methods to utilize, too. Each individual job will have its own set of pre-existing circumstances that will affect both product and application choices.
