At Wisconsin Iron Works we make some really nice gates for the garden or in the home. They cost more to produce than a plain railing or fence because it takes more steel to make and requires special engineering. But they also add more character and style to any setting.
Check out my photo story to see how we make a custom quality gate for a small courtyard made of tumbled concrete blocks. The gate is mounted to a strong hinge plate mounted to one wall and locks with a spring latch.
All of our custom gates are welded, ground and brushed to a clean paintable surface before finish coats are applied Other finishes such as galvanizing and powder coating are available, but are a lot more expensive .
The cost for prep work and paint of this item came in at $100. It will
last about five years before needing any touch up.
Contact us with an idea for a project and we'll work with you to make a perfect fit for your setting.
