Repairing Wrought Iron Railing


Hi,

I'm just wondering if anyone had an idea of what kind of product to use to fill the gaps in an old railing. I would think it would need to be flexible for expansion/contraction of the metal. Any advice on products would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tom

Repairing Wrought Iron Railing


That railing needs replacing---the welded curved top is rusting away from the subrail---

I can not think of any product that will keep that rust from expanding and lifting that cap rail again--

...bummer. Not what I wanted to hear, but I had a feeling that'd be the case.

Thanks!
