Ironwork has been an essential part of architectural design and construction for centuries. From ornamental gates at the entrance of a property to railings and fences that adorn the perimeter, ironwork adds beauty, style, and a touch of artisan craftsmanship to any property. At Artistic Ornamental Iron, we specialize in the design, fabrication, and installation of custom ironworks in Plymouth, MN, and the Twin Cities. In this blog post, we’ll take you through the process of creating custom ironworks, from design to installation. Read on to learn more!
The first step in creating custom ironwork is the design phase. At Artistic Ornamental Iron, we work with our clients to understand their vision, requirements, and preferences. We’ll create a 3D model or drawing of the design, so you can see how it will look once installed. This allows for any changes to be made before fabrication begins.
Once the design has been finalized, it’s time for fabrication. We use state-of-the-art technology and traditional artisan techniques to craft your ironwork, ensuring precise measurements, and exceptional quality. We utilize both CNC machines and hand-forged techniques to create pieces that reflect our clients’ style and functional requirements.
With the ironwork fully fabricated, it’s time for installation. Our experienced team will install the custom ironwork, taking the utmost care to ensure it’s securely in place, and all components are working correctly. We offer various installation options, including railings, balustrades, exterior railings, iron gates, iron doors, spiral staircases, and mono staircases. We even specialize in commercial staircase fabrication for roof access ladders, ship ladders, and steel stringers, ensuring safety, functionality, and compliance with local building codes.
Regular maintenance is essential to keeping your custom ironwork looking its best and performing its function. We recommend yearly inspections to check for any signs of wear or damage, and to keep your ironwork clean, free of rust, and painted or finished according to your preferences. We also offer repair services and can restore ironwork to its original beauty if it becomes damaged or weathered.
