Mine was a one off project staircase with oak steps and wrought iron structure. It included fine metal work featuring nature.It was carried out on time and to budget in very professional manner.I can while recommend this firm to anyone as a rare example of you getting the quality of work and service that you pay for.

I designed a large canopy for the front of my house and chose Fine Iron to manufacture this. The end result is amazing and I am extremely happy with the workmanship. I would highly recommend Fine Iron.

I am very happy to recommend this company both, from a quality of product and a price perspective. I carefully matched a local blacksmith, a joiner and a lead roofer to produce the work with the price quoted by Fine Iron and although they were marginally more expensive it meant everything was delivered together ready to fit and I would not have to ensure that each individual component/tradesman turned up on time and manage the project myself. The porch was erected by a local tradesman who commented on the beautiful quality of the ironwork and the ease with which it went together ("like a big Meccano set really"). The delivery from Wales to Northumberland was an excellent service and the packaging of the components on the pallet was absolutely faultless as was the pre-delivery service/instructions I received from Fine Iron. A lovely product and it looks fantastic on my 18th century house.

I've known Fine Iron Wales for many years. Their delivery is unsurpassable from start to finish. Customer service is beyond reproach and their manner friendly and down to earth; from office to workshop all are focussed, hardworking and skilled. If fine detail and precision is your thing, well...look no further.

First class form start to finish. The team at Fine Iron brought our ideas to life in a thoroughly professional manner culminating in a flawless installation. We are delighted with our balustrade, bespoke door panel and console table. Highly recommended.

I highly recommend these guys. I am a traditional handrailer making handrails for continuous geometric staircases, the way the handrail sweeps and flows is very important both functionally and aesthetically, these guys get the metalwork to flow in a way that makes making the handrail very easy, the transitions and changes in direction throughout the flights are smooth with a constant curve and no nasty kinks or twists. They are the only metalworker that I have worked with that allow me to make the handrail using the tangent handrail system and the parts fit directly onto their metalwork. It is always a pleasure to work on their jobs knowing the end result will be a thing of beauty.

I absolutely love my canopy, the Fine Iron team gave me so much time and effort helping me choose the correct design and it's turned out perfectly. A beautiful product from a fabulous company with excellent customer service.

I found FineIron via Google whilst researching a new porch for our house. It was a long search to find precisely what we were looking for, as there was so much to sift through to eventually home in on what we wanted. That was, essentially, a custom porch (due to the width and height restriction), visually appealing and high quality craftsmanship and materials.FineIron’s catalogue was an excellent start to the process in terms of understanding their products (standard and custom) and the process for measuring and ordering. I drafted a drawing of the main dimensions and sent it off for their review. We wanted quite a deep and wide canopy, but the canopy height is constrained due to protruding bricks on the wall it’s fixed on. I had a number of outstanding questions and was able to have a couple of telephone calls with FineIron to go through them. That gave me lots of confidence that we were in safe hands and demonstrated their experience and capability. They then produced professional drawings with multiple elevations so I could check everything properly before committing to that specification.Manufacturing then commenced and I acknowledged the ‘long’ lead time was due to pandemic challenges with raw material supplies, as well as understanding that the porch was all being hand-made and that required time to do it properly.Delivery: the products were superbly packaged and protected. There weren’t any issues whatsoever.I planned the installation using the drawings and guidance provided by FineIron. The main highlights of the installation, other than simple fitting with nuts and bolts, were: (1) construction of some concrete pads for the granite pad stones to sit on, (2) brick bolts for fitting to the house wall, (3) expanding foam tape between the canopy and the house wall, rather than using sealant, and (4) it was essential to have both a friend helping with lifting and fitting the canopy, and a small scaffold gantry rather than just step ladders. Installation took two days (14-16 hours) and like all these jobs, that would take less than a day the second time around. I’d say you need to be a competent DIY person to take on the installation job!Throughout the process Deb and Mikhaila have both been exceptionally helpful and very easy to do business with, and it’s been a positive customer experience for us. As I mentioned earlier, it took us a long time to find what we had in our mind’s-eye view and we’re very pleased that FineIron has perfectly achieved that.

Been meaning to send you an email for some weeks, just to say how pleased we are with our lovely porch and how well it sets off the front of the house. It looks great and has had lots of compliments, so thank you to all of your team

We were looking for a very traditional porch to set off the front of our new house and more to the point we wanted something unique. Given the unusual nature of our project we found it very difficult to source a trusted supplier with the experience and expertise in this area. Having searched the internet we contacted Fine Iron.Fine Iron took the time to establish a very clear understanding of what we were looking for and succeeded in meeting our expectations with the end product. The components arrived on time with easy to follow instructions, and the quality of workmanship and finish was first class.We are delighted with our new porch and have received lots of very positive comments from visitors and people passing by.
