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.

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.
