However, even if these steps are followed, sufficient evidence from on-site inspections and field reports suggests that another step is necessary on your part: using marine grade base material. The marine grade approach offers added protection for long life and better looks. Also: See our article’ ‘Wrought Iron or Aluminum. The Choice’.
