Wrought iron verandas
A home with a garden is a luxury that not everyone in the UK has; many people spend their lives living in high rise buildings or in cramped basement flats, so when you have a garden or outdoor space you may want to make the most of it.
Eating al fresco is wonderful in summer, but the weather can often be unpredictable, the summer may not last long and the summer sun can often be too hot.
Wrought iron is a preferred material in construction for many reasons; it is tough and durable and will last not just for years but for decades. Wrought iron verandas can be manufactured to fit in with the theme of a property, there being many different traditional and modern designs to choose from.
Wrought iron constructions are sturdy and weather proof, can be a more desirable addition than canvas blinds or sun parasols and can increase the value of a property. In the winter you can simply forget about it safe in the knowledge that it will not become damaged by the weather.
Specialists can design a bespoke veranda as well as installing or restoring other wrought iron features such as balconies, sconces, and spiral staircases. Wrought iron is prepared for restoration by sand and shot blasting techniques, and the metal can be smoothed to perfection ready for coating and painting.
