We pay close attention when producing Ornamental Driveway Gates, Wrought Iron Gates or just Iron Gates because most of the times, the frame is made of Steel HSS Tubing.

Wine Cellar Gates really give a wine cellar a finished look. We are able to create grape clusters with leaves and vines. Again, every Scroll is custom-made to fit in that Gate, so it will not look as if someone had been trying to fill a space with some out-of-scale scrolls.

Over many years Sylvan and Damien have done multiple projects in my home. Their craftsmanship and attention to detail continue to impress and I marvel at those projects where they truly ply their craft as artisans. Hard working, a strong commitment to client satisfaction, and both humble to a fault. They say a picture says a thousand words so when reviewing their project portfolio that’s an understatement.

Sylvan’s work was outstanding, he produced a railing that was exactly what we imagined! His craftsmanship is by far the best I’ve seen. We couldn’t be happier with what we received. Thank you Sylvan!!

Laura Decotiis
Sylvan handcrafted our custom home staircase railing and it is a showpiece when you enter our home! I simply showed him an inspiration picture and he used that and produced exactly what I was looking for with his own added touch which makes it so unique. The quality of iron he used is fantastic. I love the finished product!
Tina Gill
Sylvan is an incredible craftsman. He takes great pride in his work and his workmanship is beyond compare. Sylvan has great attention to detail and has a really good sense of what would suit a given space. In designing our outdoor railing he provided great suggestions and what he designed looks truly beautiful. The materials Sylvan used to build our outdoor railing are of excellent quality and have withstood wear from the elements. In addition to producing great quality work, Sylvan is an absolute pleasure to work with – he is professional in every respect, is timely in his work and is truly committed to client satisfaction. I would have no hesitation using Sylvan for any other projects – indoor or outdoor.
