A Custom Wrought Iron or Steel Gate for Your Home To begin the initial process of creating your one-of-a-kind iron gate structure, we start with the aesthetic view and design. We create a piece that both serves as proper protection from intrusion, as well as provide the look and feel you want for your metal gate. Then, we begin the forming process with your choice in raw material for your wrought iron or steel gate. Materials commonly used for these structures are plate metal or formed and expanded metal. We then cut the materials to size based on your custom design, utilizing cutting and burning tools to create individual pieces. One common tool used for this process is a “shearing” tool. From there, we finish with the final assembly of your metal gate, ensuring your steel or iron gate structure looks is in total working order.
