Painting a metal fence
Q. I bought an older home with a wrought-iron fence. I painted it with a rust-conversion paint and it is still rusty. What kind of paint do you recommend? The fence is even pitted.
A. It is best to remove all the loose rust with steel wool or a steel brush. The pitting cannot be restored, but any rust in the pits must be removed. When this is done, apply either a metal paint with an integral primer and rust resistance or prime the fence with a metal primer and apply a top coat of paint formulated for metal.by
