| For this issue, we are featuring a project recently completed at a stately historic home in northern New Jersey. The current owner was interested in enhancing the original windows and doors with custom decorative wrought iron window guards.
Airmet Metalworks was contracted to design, fabricate and install the ironwork which was carefully fashioned to match the time period and style of this extraordinary structure. We started out by removing the original wooden doors and windows that were rotting away. The framework was replaced with bronze finished metal with double insulated glass. The beautiful scrolled custom window guards were forged from solid wrought iron. The stonework was repointed to match the original surface. The finished project is a work of art which compliments and beautifies the splendor of this magnificent architecture.
"Working with Steve and Airmet was a wonderful experience. Steve brought technical expertise, design skill, and creativity to the project and worked through several of the surprises you find on a restoration with ease. I look forward to working with Steve on other projects and highly recommend Airmet." current owner

When planning your home project, always keep in mind the lead time required to design, fabricate and install your project. Stephen first meets with each and every client to discuss their ideas. He works with you from concept to final design. Once the designs are agreed upon, materials are ordered and the fabrication process begins.
After fabrication of all outdoor wrought iron projects, we highly recommend a hot-dip galvanizing process. This process coats the iron with zinc which protects the metal from the elements. Once this application is completed, we carefully prepare the entire project again and finish with a special top coat. Colors are many, ranging from "our favorite" historical satin black to mineral bronze patina.
Your items are not simply pulled "off the shelf". Every job we do is unique to each of our customers. Our work is as individual as you are. The final step of installation often feels to us like the opening reception of fine artwork. It's the very exciting display of our "finished product".
