1. How is Artistic Iron different from other companies who make iron and steel products?

Artistic Iron is dedicated to providing a high level of service to homeowners and businesses. Here's what our owners have to say:

It's obvious that in today's economy, many manufactures are taking short cuts to get you their products. To keep their costs down, the products are substituted with cheaper quality materials, imitation parts, questionable workmanship or compromised customer service. It is also very obvious that great quality products are no longer enough. Instead, it's the total experience for our customers that makes the difference. This means you can count on Artistic Iron for the highest level of quality in every aspect from the initial phone conversation, appointments at your home or business, product design, high quality materials, original make parts, final installation, warranty support and excellent customer service you deserve. Everyone at Artistic Iron is 100% dedicated to providing an experience you will truly enjoy.

3. How are your products made?

Your piece will be hand built by expert craftsmen at our shop in Denver, Colorado. We use only top-quality materials proven manufacturing techniques such as 16-gauge solid steel pickets and four-sided welding for maximum strength and security. This high-quality "pickled & oiled" steel is the best foundation for a product that will last for many years. Learn more about our manufacturing process and craftsmanship.

4. What is the longevity of the finish on your products?

Every door from Artistic Iron receives a long-lasting finish. We begin by pre-cleaning the steel with a phosphate wash. Then, we apply an electrostatic powder coating (click for color samples) to ensure a beautiful appearance throughout the life of your door. We also offer additional finish treatments like clear coating and sandblasting to create a special appearance. Some colors may change slightly over time due to Colorado's extreme weather and intense sun exposure.

5. Can I commission a custom piece?

Yes,absolutely. Artistic Iron has manufactured many full custom designs for our customers. Many manufacturers market their products as "custom built" but offer you a standard design from their catalogue that is built to your size. That is the most "custom built" you can get from them.  Try to get your own design built and you will realise that you are very quickly being  pursuaded to choose a design from their catalgoue.
At Artistic Iron, you can be rest assured when we speak of custom built, you truely get a custom piece built to your to exact needs to express your indviduality. Every aspect of your custom item is designed and built to your sepcifications from size, options, colors, design and more.  Bring along your own design or if needed, a Design Consultant will also help you design the perfect piece to match your vision. Then, it will be hand-built to your exact specifications by our expert craftsmen.  Call for a FREE in-home estimate: (303) 791-6440
