Long Lasting and Durable

Wrought iron gets its strengths due to its combination of iron with carbon. However, this does not mean it is not malleable, because it most certainly is! This combo allows for the transformation of wrought iron into beautiful shapes and curves. So, in the hands of experts like us, we can create something magical for you!

This combination of materials also makes wrought iron very durable and long-lasting. This material provides excellent resistance to corrosion. And only requires painting once every 3 to 5 years. Or even longer depending on the given circumstances. And even when it begins to rust, it takes years for the actual integrity to suffer or become compromised. Which allows for ample time to restore it.

Safety & Security

Since wrought iron is a strong material that lasts a long time, it is perfect for railing that needs to be secure. It will stand the test of time and allow for people to use it in a safe manner for years without needing any restoration. Great for high traffic areas, as well as for safety along stairways and balconies. They are also a popular material to use around pools and ponds and effective at keeping young kids from entering dangerous areas.

And depending on the use, we can customize the railing to make it less appealing for intruders. We do this by forming points and spires, which prohibits people from hopping them. Of course this also depends on the height. But it is an extra layer of security.

A Certain Type Beauty

There is, well, a certain type of beauty when it comes to the use of wrought iron for any sort of railing installation. There is a timelessness with it that you will not get with other materials. You can easily shape and paint this material to best fit the style of your property. And it always looks great when it is complimented by other materials, like woodworking and masonry.

These railings look great around patios, pools, gardens and much more! They offer an attractive backdrop for any yard or property. And if you want privacy, they will pair nicely with shrubs, hedges and trees and create a beautiful and natural view-blocking aesthetic.

Won’t Obstruct Views

Living on Long Island means there is a lot of great scenery to look at and chew on. And many may think the addition of a wrought iron railing may obstruct that beautiful view. However, that is far from the case. When we create a railing, we do it in your image. So we construct it with strong, sturdy bars. But these bars are also thin and allow for you to gaze beyond the bars. We can customize the railing with curves to maintain an open design, so you won’t have to miss a thing! Not all materials offer this benefit.

Wrought iron also can enhance the curb appeal of any residential or commercial property. So, if you are thinking about selling your home in the future, you will also be increasing the value of the property with the addition of these railings.
