Why install an iron fence?
Iron is a long-lasting material that can protect your property for years to come. Iron represents one of the sturdiest and most secure types of fencing, providing you with peace of mind as well as enhanced elegance.
A wrought-iron fence, when properly made, should only need to be installed once, lasting a virtual lifetime when properly maintained. That’s why we create all of our custom wrought-iron fences from scratch, right here in New Orleans. We pride ourselves on the level of craftsmanship, care, and precision that goes into each and every one of our fences.
Here are a few common reasons our clients choose iron fencing:
They’re interested in clarifying property lines between their yard and their neighbors’
They like the freedom to design a custom fence that fits their style
They want to discourage neighbors, pets, or kids who wander into their yard
They’re interested in increasing their security
They worry about their kids, grandkids, or pets escaping the backyard
They’ll be selling their home soon (an iron fence will boost resale value)
An iron fence can draw a clear line between your property and your neighbors’ property, protect children from wandering into nearby streets, and keep trespassers out of your yard.
Additionally, iron fences are known for their durability – this is an investment you’ll be able to enjoy for decades to come. For more information on our New Orleans ornamental iron fences, keep reading about the styles and options we offer.
What styles are available for custom iron fences?
Because our fences are custom, if you have a specific idea for a design pattern or form, let us know! Our talented welders and fabricators can craft a fence that brings your vision into reality.
Here are a few different aspects of your fence that we can tailor to your desires:
Style – regal or aristocrat: A “regal” style iron fence has posts topped by an iron bar, while an “aristocrat” style iron fence has posts with tips that extend past the top bar.
Post shape and design: Want an ornamental iron fence, inspired by floral designs? We can build that! Interested in a more modern, twisted iron fence? We’ll install it! When you custom-design a fence, you can choose your own post style. We even offer New Orleans style wrought iron fences!
Post caps: If you choose an Aristocrat-style fence, we’ll help you select post caps that finish off your style with a classy touch. From traditional ball and pyramid style caps, to more ornate flame or floral options, we carry a wide selection to match your personality.
Height: Some people need a tall fence around the perimeter of their yard; others only want a low fence around their garden. We’ll help you create a fence at whatever height is appropriate for your needs.
Whatever your design preferences, we can create a custom iron fence here in New Orleans to match.

Installing your custom iron fence
As your New Orleans neighbors and trusted fence contractors, we’ll work to make the installation of your custom iron fence go as smoothly as possible.
Here are a few things you can expect when you hire us to create you New Orleans ornamental iron fence:
We’ll create an iron fence you love. Our priority, as a top-rated New Orleans fence contractor, is your satisfaction. From selecting a post design to installing post toppers, we’ll make sure you absolutely love your new custom iron fence.
We won’t leave a mess. We pride ourselves on being reputable, considerate fence contractors. We won’t leave a mess to clean up, and we won’t damage your property during installation.
We’ll communicate with you throughout the custom-design and installation process. As you custom-design your fence, and as we install it, our reliable contractors will communicate with you about the progress of your project and any relevant updates. We won’t leave you in the dark, make decisions for you, or make assumptions.
We’ll take the time needed to finish the job well. Our trusted welders will create your custom iron fence with care, installing and bonding posts in a way that will last for years to come.
We won’t cut corners. We believe quality is important. That’s why, even if you’re looking for a budget iron wrought fence, we’ll make sure to choose quality materials for your project – because our city deserves the best.
We’ll make sure your fence is both functional and aesthetically-pleasing. An iron fence with posts too far apart (or too short) won’t increase your yard’s level of security, and one with posts too close together will look like a prison. Our professionals create high-quality fences that balance security and aesthetics, designing fences that are both functional and beautiful.
Once you’ve installed your New Orleans ornamental iron fence, you may want to bring the style indoors with New Orleans style wrought iron railings, or add a gate that matches the elegance of your new fence.
We offer many services to New Orleans residents beyond custom iron fences.
Some of our other services include:
Iron railings, both indoor and outdoor, to add style to your stairs while increasing safety
Double French doors, as well as other door styles, to create a grand entrance into your newly-fenced yard
Double driveway gates (and other gate types) to finish your new fence
