At Fine Iron we understand that there are a multitude of architectural periods and styles and porch ironwork that may suit one home may not compliment another quite as well. This is why we have taken time and care in designing a broad range of porch ironwork to cover a whole host of architectural periods from Georgian to Arts and Crafts, Victorian to Contemporary – you are sure to find a design that enhances your entrance, helping to make a home as unique as you!
Our elegant, handcrafted entrance porches offer shelter and protection over any doorway including main, side or rear entrances as well as over French or patio doors – though if you would prefer more space and shade you may wish to consider one of our beautifully crafted verandas.
All of our porch ironwork is handcrafted to order to ensure a perfect fit! Fine Iron are also proud to offer a bespoke design service. For a porch design tailored specifically to your requirements please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
A combination of straight symmetrical lines that contrast beautifully with the free-flowing form of the rose vine and cast leaves. This traditional porch ironwork is perfectly suited to country cottages, period & traditional architectural styles.
Our minimalistic yet stylish Highbury ironwork is simple and uncomplicated. The bar spacings create interest without overpowering making this a great modern or contemporary porch design.
Although we show some ‘typical’ sizes for our porches, these are purely as a guide only as we understand that most homes are in fact quite unique! That’s why all of our ironwork is handcrafted and made to order. This ensures that our ironwork is made to suit the individual requirements of your home and your personal needs and preferences.
All we need from you is the overall width, the preferred depth out and the required height from ground to the underside of the roof.
Please don’t worry at this stage as when you place your order we provide fully dimensioned drawings so there’s plenty of time to double check before we start to make anything. This ensures that your ironwork fits exactly how you want it!

What are roof options are available?
(We offer an array of roof options to give you the freedom to choose what you prefer. Our most cost-effective option would be our galvanised mild sheet roof (see below for more information about this type of roof).
We can provide a roof framework which can be lined and leaded by your local roofer/ builder – we do not line and lead ourselves as we are not a roofing company and there are many styles of lining and leading, which are best worked through with a professional in that trade.
We also offer a glazing bar roof, which allows you to have a partially or fully glazed roof, this can be straight or curved with hipped ends. We do not supply the glass as we are not a glazier, but do supply the mild steel sheet for infill panels if required.)
Can you attach guttering to a galvanised mild sheet roof?
Can you line a galvanised mild sheet roof?
Can you flash around the galvanised mild sheet roof using lead or similar?
How will my order arrive?
We take the utmost care when packing and your pallet will be made specially for your ironwork. However, we would always ask that the ironwork is unpackaged and inspected before the courier leaves. In the extremely rare event of any damages we would ask that you make us aware of this as soon as possible and send any relevant photos. (All of our Ironwork is photographed prior to leaving our workshop)
Is there a delivery charge?
Do prices include VAT?
Do you keep any stock?
Can I return my order if I don’t like it?
