3 Top Tips to Maintain External Ironwork
1. Annual Maintenance
How often your ironwork will require some maintenance very much depends on local conditions but we would recommend checking the ironwork over at least annually.
2. Keep it clean and clear
Debris such as leaves can cause water to get trapped and sit against the ironwork, so remove any fallen leaves or other debris as and when you see it. Also, give the ironwork a wipe over with a damp cloth intermittently to remove dust, cobwebs and dirt.
3. Touch up’s
During you maintenance checks, if you see any chips or scratches to the paint, touch it up as soon as possible – we supply a tin of touch up paint with all of our Porches, Verandas and Canopies to allow you to do this.
