Some advantages using iron for your rails and fencing are durability, ease of maintenance and longevity of your investment. All of our ironwork is powder coated to protect it from the environment & for low maintenance for years and years. Most of our railings are with removable bolt joints to easily remove rail sections to get large piece of furniture on a deck & removable for easy repair if a section was damaged. By creating bolt joints you eliminate welding joints on site and touching up with spray paint, creating a weak link in the finish of your product. Powder coating today has a huge variety of colors and textures to choose from and can be color matched for your specific need if desired.
