Like many UK industries, metalworkers and fabricators have encountered strong competition from the Far East, where similar looking products are often available at a much lower price. Luckily however, there is a growing market for a high quality British made metal products and metalworker projects. The current vogue for greener products is helping as many consumers realise how wasteful it is to source products from thousands of miles away when they can be sourced in the UK. Many UK metalwork companies in the UK have in-house manufacturing capabilities and can provide all kinds of architectural metalwork and fabrication for both exterior & interior fittings such as lighting, candelabra, architectural ironmongery, gates, railings, grilles, balconies & staircases, fire baskets, fireguards & screens, curtain poles, furniture, garden sculptures, retail displays, armour and weaponry.
If you are thinking about a custom metal roof, security gates, fencing, decorative ironmongery or metal staircase for your home, then DIY is probably not an option! Unlike many trades and crafts in the UK, where it is feasible for DIY enthusiasts to save some money and tackle the job themselves, metalwork and fabrication is a job that is best left to professionals!
Ironmongery can be both decorative and functional at the same time, a balcony or staircase for your home for example can be a useful and aesthetically pleasing feature. Professional companies around the UK can custom build balconies, safety rails, bespoke design railings, driveway gates, metal staircases and a full range of other metalwork products which are deigned to look great and be useful too. Metal fabricators offer design, manufacture & fitting of contemporary & traditional products, with everything from security gates to fire escapes.
Whether you are looking for purely functional or aesthetic products, many are choosing metalwork in all its forms for new builds and renovation projects, both external such as fire escapes or internal balustrades or handrails. You should follow the same tried and tested tips when choosing a tradesman or contractor, namely - always try and choose from personal recommendations or referrals, rather than blindly choosing from the local Yellow Pages. try and get a least 3 quotes, check for trade memberships, local authority listings and ask to see previous work and discuss the work with the previous customers. It is vitally important to choose a reputable metalworker when you are considering projects which are not purely decorative and have some sort of safety aspect, for example railings, staircases or fire escapes!
