Quote:Galvanized after weld is a better product than galvanized before weld. Galvanizing is the process of coating wire with zinc to protect it from rusting. If the wire is galvanized before it's welded, the welding process burns off some of the zinc coating, making it more prone to rust at those points. And since those weld points are the connections between the horizontal and vertical wires. that's exactly the place where you least want your wire to rust through.

I bought some GAW wire from Amazon to finish the apron on my run and was pretty displeased with the quality of the wire. Some of the welds popped apart as I was installing the apron!

I buy all of my wire from W.A. Davidson in Florida, and have been pretty satisfied with the quality. I get the vinyl coated stuff.

I went with the 48" 1/2 x 1/2 50ft for 70.00 from csnstores.com. I bought 2 rolls. Free shipping and I don't think they charged me tax.

That sounds like a good price.​
