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 Providence building codes. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of ironwork: Fencing & Gate Sales & Construction, Decks, Patios & Outdoor Enclosures, Siding & Exteriors.
