From window frames to grates and balconies, from screens and fences to hardware, these pros shape iron into forms that are as decorative as they are functional. More

What Does an Ironworker Do?


An ornamental ironworker fabricates bulk iron into the types of structures that a particular home calls for, then installs them onsite. Some of these pieces are mass produced, others custom crafted. Many ornamental ironworkers also have the design skills to fashion unique decorative components. Ironworkers must be trained in safety to create elements such as railings and balconies that both satisfy a home’s aesthetic needs and meet DC (Washington), DC building codes.

Questions to ask a prospective ironworker:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • What training and licensing do you have?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
