    A History of Wrought Iron

    Posted on January 31, 2018 @ 4:37 pm

    A History of Wrought Iron Iron doors and windows make elegant additions to homes and businesses. Indeed, iron — including wrought iron — has been included in the design and construction of buildings of all types for generations. This includes everything from private residences to cathedrals to royal palaces, and many other types of buildings.

    If you are considering adding iron doors, windows, or some other accoutrements made of that material to your residence of business, you might enjoy hearing a bit about the history of wrought iron. Wrought iron has been a major element of some of the most amazing structures built the world over.

    What is Wrought Iron?

    Wrought is word that historically meant “to work.” Wrought iron garners its name from the fact that it is “worked” iron. In this regard, you need to think about a blacksmith, a person who forms and fashions metal.

    Wrought iron, historically was considered the most common form of malleable iron. A product crafted from wrought iron is one that was mechanically worked by forging, extruding, rolling, hammering, and other techniques. This is done to change its form and even its properties. Because of advances in technology, wrought iron is not widely utilized today.

    An Iconic Structure We All Know

    In today’s world, you need look further than Paris to see an example of an amazing, iconic structure made of a type of wrought iron.

    The Eiffel tower was constructed with puddled iron, which is a form of wrought iron. The Eiffel Tower is defined as a wrought iron lattice tower. It is located on the Champ de Mars in Paris. The structure is named after the engineer who worked for the company that designed the Eiffel Tower, a man named Gustave Eiffel.

    The Origins of Wrought Iron

    Wrought iron actually can be traced as far back as the Han Dynasty in China. This is about two hundred years before the so-called Christian Era or the birth of Christ. During the 400 year period wrought iron became utilized during the Han Dynasty, its use began to spread not only throughout Asia, but came into regular use in Europe as well.

    Wrought Iron Furniture

    Wrought iron furniture has been long in use. Wrought iron furniture was in use during the times of the Roman Empire. This type of furniture started to come into use throughout Europe, including in England. In fact, wrought iron furniture reached what most historians agree was the peak of its popularity in the 17th century England. This occurred in England, during the reign of William III and Mary II.

    Wrought Iron Gates and Doors

    Although found in different parts of the world for hundreds of years, wrought iron gates and doors also were widely utilized in England. For example, wrought iron doors and gates were prominent features in Westminster Abbey in the 13th century.

    Wrought iron gates and doors are also featured in castles and palaces constructed throughout England, Ireland, and Scotland. Wrought iron gates and doors are also found in churches and castles throughout what is now Germany.

    Palaces in Russia also feature a significant amount of wrought iron in gates and doors. These include palaces that date back to the reigns of Peter the Great and Catherine the Great.

    Wrought Iron Today

    Although wrought iron is not produced on a large scale today, it is still crafted and utilized in some situations. For example, wrought iron continues to be utilized in historic preservation projects and in the rehabilitation of historic structures.

    Wrought iron today typically is drawn from reclaimed materials. For example, wrought iron is drawn from old bridges and anchor chains dredged from harbors.

    With that said, there are artisans in business today who do work with traditional wrought iron. They are known for crafting specialized, custom made items for businesses and residences. For example, these craftspeople are known to make wrought iron doors, windows, fences, and furniture.

    What technically is known as mild steel is oftentimes called wrought iron today. This occurs because it does have a look that resembles true wrought iron.

    Mild steel, billed as wrought iron, oftentimes is utilized in doors, windows, fences, furniture, and other items. Again, these products nearly always are classified as being made from wrought iron, even though that technically is not the case.

    In today’s world, those who work with traditional, wrought iron and mild steel oftentimes are referred to as being involved with artisan metalwork for architectural elements, garden features, and decorative or ornamental objects. Some of these artisans use the practices favored by blacksmiths in another era.

    Jessica Kane is a professional blogger who writes for Abby Iron Doors. Abby Iron Doors specialize in designing and manufacturing wrought iron entry doors, wine cellar doors, windows and balconies for residential and commercial customers.

    Four Reasons to Call a Professional Plumber for Your Drain Problem

    Posted on January 9, 2018 @ 10:24 am

    Every homeowner will have a clogged drain or a slow drain issue sooner or later. This is simply a part of owning a home. However, when this happens, you need to call a lumber to fix the issue. There are many good reasons for this, but the following are amount the most important.

    The job will get done

    You can buy those drain cleaning products that they advertise on television, but you are wasting your money. Occasionally, you may get lucky, and the drain will clear, but the truth is that it was likely a week stoppage. A drain cleaner will be able to remove the stoppage every time. If the stoppage is weak, you may be able to unclog the drain with a plunger, but if not, you should call a plumber. Not only will the drain be cleared, but the entire drain line will be cleaned. This helps to prevent your drain from stopping up in the near future. Of-the-shelf chemicals often clear a drain temporarily, but the stoppage reassembles further down the drain pipe.

    A plumber can diagnose the problem

    A plumber can determine where the stoppage is in your drain lines. This is not always as easy as you might think. The drain pipes are connected in various ways. You need to understand where the problem is, so the right drain pipe can be cleaned. Another issue is with the type of stoppage. Some times it is a build up of hair in a bathtub drain, but in a kitchen sink, it could be grease and grime that have created a soft stoppage. This type of stoppage may need the use of a pressure nozzle. Although they are simple to use, they only need to be attached to a garden hose, if you don’t understand the configuration of drains in the house, the water can easily backup to another drain. This can cause water damage to your home.

    They know how to use drain cleaning equipment

    Like the pressure hose mentioned previously, a plumber has tools of the trade that an amateur may not use properly. A rotary coil, for example, is a common piece of equipment used by plumbers. However, there are different sizes used on different drains. Even is you happen to use the right size for your house’s drain pipe, the skill in using one is important. It is easy to get the coil caught on something in the drain pipe. and then have the cable break inside the pipe. If you were to do this, you would need a plumber, but the job is going to get expensive. Not only that, but you will have to pay for damages to the rental company that you got the equipment from.

    The work is guaranteed

    A professional plumber guarantees their work. In the unlikely event that your drain clogs up again, you need only call the plumbing company, and they will return to fix the drain problem. If you attempt the job yourself, it is likely that you will not do the quality job of a professional. This means that you will need to do the work again. You may need to rent the same equipment you rented the first time, and this just adds to the cost of doing it yourself.

    Never mind the chemicals or renting equipment. When you have a clogged drain, pick of the phone and call a plumbers Irving TX immediately.
