“Our client wanted an elegant solution to create a glazed canopy that suited the historic nature of the Chiltern firehouse. After scouring the market for suitable ironwork contractor’s we found Fine Iron.
From the outset we formed a strong relationship and felt comfortable that they understood the brief. Finding bespoke cast iron columns and sleek glazing systems were no problem to the Fine Iron team led by Lee Stephens.
The structural design was easily resolved and the fabrication of the steel off site made the on site installation a dream.

“it took us a long time to find what we had in our mind’s-eye view and we’re very pleased that FineIron has perfectly achieved that.”
“I found FineIron via Google whilst researching a new porch for our house. It was a long search to find precisely what we were looking for, as there was so much to sift through to eventually home in on what we wanted. That was, essentially, a custom porch (due to the width and height restriction), visually appealing and high quality craftsmanship and materials.
FineIron’s catalogue was an excellent start to the process in terms of understanding their products (standard and custom) and the process for measuring and ordering. I drafted a drawing of the main dimensions and sent it off for their review. We wanted quite a deep and wide canopy, but the canopy height is constrained due to protruding bricks on the wall it’s fixed on. I had a number of outstanding questions and was able to have a couple of telephone calls with FineIron to go through them. That gave me lots of confidence that we were in safe hands and demonstrated their experience and capability. They then produced professional drawings with multiple elevations so I could check everything properly before committing to that specification.”
“Manufacturing then commenced and I acknowledged the ‘long’ lead time was due to pandemic challenges with raw material supplies, as well as understanding that the porch was all being hand-made and that required time to do it properly.
Delivery: the products were superbly packaged and protected. There weren’t any issues whatsoever.
I planned the installation using the drawings and guidance provided by FineIron. The main highlights of the installation, other than simple fitting with nuts and bolts, were: (1) construction of some concrete pads for the granite pad stones to sit on, (2) brick bolts for fitting to the house wall, (3) expanding foam tape between the canopy and the house wall, rather than using sealant, and (4) it was essential to have both a friend helping with lifting and fitting the canopy, and a small scaffold gantry rather than just step ladders. Installation took two days (14-16 hours) and like all these jobs, that would take less than a day the second time around. I’d say you need to be a competent DIY person to take on the installation job!
Throughout the process Deb and Mikhaila have both been exceptionally helpful and very easy to do business with, and it’s been a positive customer experience for us. As I mentioned earlier, it took us a long time to find what we had in our mind’s-eye view and we’re very pleased that FineIron has perfectly achieved that.“

“The production and finish is reassuringly high quality”
“Can’t fault Fineiron in any way. From turning our initial rough sketch in to a proposal through to keeping us inform on production and then delivery it was just what you what when ordering a once in a lifetime bespoke item. The production and finish is reassuringly high quality when investing in something which will last a lifetime (and beyond!).“
