Working with Hess Ornamental Iron is always in three simple steps.

First step:
We come out to your home or business where you wish to start your project and offer you an estimate. We will show you our vast inventory of unique and impressive custom metalwork designs.
First step:
Once you give the okay, we will begin the manufacture of your project, hand-crafted at our own shop in Dallastown, PA.
First step:
Finally, we install your newly completed project. We may need to assemble on-site if your project is particularly large.

Call or email us to get started! Please provide as much information as possible about the project you have in mind.
