Choose the Right Style of Ornamental Iron for Your Home.
Selecting the right style and design of ornamental iron work for your home is the key to creating the desired aesthetic. Consider the existing style, aiming for something complementary. Think about how you would accentuate the character of your property, and look for a product that best fits your or your designer's vision. Consult with an expert about how to pick the right kind to suit the architectural requirements of your place.
There are many types of ornamental iron works available, from modern to vintage, and numerous more in between the spectrum. Combining different styles will provide a tasteful touch to your property, but make sure it still looks cohesive. Additionally, there are other considerations like materials and finishes. Quality materials such as wrought iron or aluminum will ensure your product will stand the test of time and need minimum maintenance. Finishes such as powder coating or paint can add an eye-catching look.
Often we recommend our clients determine three design elements that speak out in the façade or interior space. Incorporating home-character details, will counteract the new iron work product with existing surroundings.

Know Local Ordinances When Installing Ornamental Iron in Utah.
It’s essential to be aware of your local ordinances before installing any outdoor ornamental iron work products. Make sure to follow the regulations, as some cities are very strict about some types of metal fabrication work installations.
Usually, these ordinances contain size limits, pre-approved design guidelines, and building codes. Doing the research ahead of time will prevent potential problems and ensure that your ornamental iron work is compliant.
Depending on your city or county’s requirements, it may be necessary to acquire a permit before installing any decorative ornamental iron works. It could include anything from personalized metal mailbox stands to a sturdy iron fence or custom metal gate.
Make sure to check with your local building department for more specific information regarding the permits required in your area, so you can have peace of mind before purchasing and installing any metal fabrication products. In addition to legal codes, many cities also have aesthetic guidelines for metal work installations, such as limits on height and particular design features. Understanding all these regulations ahead of time will ensure that your project runs smoothly and is compliant with your city’s laws.

The combination of materials in custom iron work
Adding multiple metals to your ornamental ironworks can create a unique and beautiful appearance. Combining mild steel, cast iron, stainless steel, brass, copper, and aluminum gives a design more dimension and visual appeal. Varying colors of metals break up the monotony, reaching the balance.
Mild steel is the most common type used in ornamental iron works, but mixing and matching other metals are encouraged. Cast iron has a deep, matte black finish and is an excellent choice to create contrast with steel. Brass also offers a beautiful golden hue that adds warmth and elegance to any décor. Consult the designer or let us show you examples.
No matter what combination of metals you choose, select items with a finish and style that will complement each other and, of course, the character of the place. Seamless transition of design pieces will appear cohesive and professional. The downside is that if exposed to humidity, the materials might react with one another, creating various hue spots. So make sure when layered, the materials are isolated with primer. If used artistically - a combination of metals can create a unique and enchanting look.
Ornamental ironwork and metal fabrication are an ocean for creativity and experiments. Let us take care of the project you need to get done professionally and artistically!
