Questions and answers - Wrought Repair Los Angeles


Wrought Iron Repair Question:

"Hello I am home owner here in Los Angeles and looking to get my wrought iron railing repaired. We are located in South Los Angeles and for some reason we did not place the wrought iron railings in the cement directly. We mounted the wrought iron railings using an old method of placing them on top and over the concrete with out sealing them in one place.

Our main problem is that all around the on railings they are not only rusting, but chipping in paint and texture. My first thought was to fill the spots that are chipping and falling apart with a type of wrought iron repair solution.

What products should I use for this project?

Again, we are in Los Angeles, CA and if you can contact us as soon as possible that would be great!
