Iron Rail Terminations in Woolwich Township, NJ

The client for this job wanted something different at the bottom of his rail that would make a statement. I think we pulled that off, big time. We had custom iron terminations faux finished to match the designer vintage brass finish of the iron balusters. There were several challenges in designing and implementing these iron terminations. Lomonaco's Iron Concepts and Home Decor once again came through with a solution.

The challenges were how are we going to make this strong and
elegant at the same time. We came up with the solution to weld
legs at the bottom along with a spacer piece to the back of one of
the scrolls that meets the solid oak reeded newel post. The bottom legs are epoxied and wedge screwed in for maximum strength and the scroll is also epoxied in.

We consulted with the homeowners on several occasions with how to go about making a statement at the start of the rail. I believe the homeowner made a statement of his own. He installed the ceramic tile risers himself to give the rail a little touch of Italy. He did a magnificent job with the tile work and his craftsmanship is second to none from what I can see.

It's nice when you get to work with clients that have a natural talent and vision as to exactly what they want. Sometimes their vision isn't always possible but at Lomonaco's Iron Concepts & Home Decor we thrive on the challenge of making the impossible possible.
Also on this project we had to make a curved balcony rail as well. This involved having the handrail and bottom landing tread curved to match exactly to one another and the existing floor radius. I have to mention that this was no eays task being that the radius on the floor is not constant.

Lomonaco's Iron Concepts has the finest craftsman working with them to make all the clients needs and wishes a reality. Curve rails are always a little challenging but when they are a tight radius over a short span that poses some unique challenges.

As you see here, this home also had a very long balcony rail overlooking their family room. We used one solid piece of handrail with all the reeded newel posts mounted underneath.

The entire job has all the reeded newel posts mounted under the handrail for a continuous flow and elegant look. This project posed several challenges in the beginning, but with a little thought the professionals at Lomonaco's Iron Concepts & Home Decor were able to overcome.

The project went well, the clients are very happy and that 's the most important thing at Lomonaco's Iron Concepts & Home Decor, 100% customer satisfaction.

If you would like to be added to our long list of satisfied customers call our office now at 856-740-1071 and Beverly will set up your free in-home consultation.

Custom Fluted Box Newels in Sicklerville, NJ

This particular job need to have custom box newels made to accommodate the existing stairway configuration. I have to admit I like it when we have to do something custom on a job. These newel posts generally only come 6 1/4" and 7 1/2" wide, we had them designed and fabricated in a 4 1/2" width that fit perfectly in our stairway.

The homeowners were amazed out how the job turned out in the fact that the newel posts were just the right size to flow with everything else being done. The homeowner was very much involved in the design and layout of the iron balusters and wood newel posts, I cannot take all the credit.

This also shows that we are willing to work with individuals that have a vision and design in their mind. Our goal at Lomonaco's Iron Concepts & Home Decor is to make our customers dreams become a reality. We work with homeowners, designers and architects all the time and we have had several challenging requests thrown our way over the years and through our many years of experience at Lomonaco's Iron Concepts & Home Decor we always come through, sometimes under very stringent deadlines.

Lomonaco's Iron Concepts & Home Decor has a full time interior decorator / designer on staff to help with pulling the whole project together. Beverly's expertise was not needed on this particular job, however she was on site several times speaking to the homeowner and giving them ideas.

If you would like to have one of our professionally trained staff members meet with you to design the decor of a new room, stairway makeover or custom trim work give our office a call and Beverly will be happy to set up a free consultation with you or visit us on the web at:

Custom Trimwork in Williamstown New Jersey!

We trimmed out around all the door ways in this home including the front entryway. All of the room openings were framed out and had custom headers installed to give a very elegant look. In this home they had a sheetrock return niche with an interior light installed underneath the header. The homeowner hated this part of their home until now.

We completely remodeled this niche in the wall in the same materials we used in the rest of the house to pull it all together. The homeowner now loves this part of her foyer and will be using this as a focal point instead of trying to hide it.

 As you can see, there is a lot of detail that went into this front entryway surround. We have radius fluted columns with high plinth blocks at the bottom and it makes a seamless transition.

You can see that all of the headers are custom made in our shop. We have a dual axis cnc computerized router machine and we can make custom wood panels to suit your needs.

Custom Railing in Sewell NJ

In the picture to the right you will see another custom made railing from Lomonaco's Iron Concepts. This rail was installed in a basement in Sewell, NJ. The basement wasn't complete until the railings went in making this a one of a kind stairway to the ultimate man cave.

This rail was done the old fashioned way. It is a complete welded construction. Ther are no visible welds for the eye to see. We developed a system to hide all the welds so the balusters look like they are just sitting there in air.

This procedure of hiding all the welds requires precise cutting of the balusters to the exact angle of the stairway and precision welding. You only get once chance to make the welds perfect. At Lomonaco's Iron Concepts we use only the latest technology and newest equipment in their fabrication process.

All rails and custom iron work is first drawn to exact scale using a computer aided drawing program called FabCad. Lomonaco's Iron Concepts has the latest version of FabCad 2011.

By using FabCad, it assures that we have an exact drawing to supply to our shop so we can fabricate the clients item to the exact measurements and down to the very last detail. This process will help us meet all of our customers needs which is priority #1.
