Hand forged vs. made oversees


California Custom iron railing

I am sad to say that the skills and talents that blacksmiths were known for throughout the 1600’s to present have become a lost art. From European castle’s and churches to the 1800th  White House, blacksmiths and iron workers have had the talent to take raw iron and steel and form it into custom railing and staircases.  In the 20th century most fabricators and iron workers have never been taught the trade from the people before there time, leaving them with nothing else but a catalog with pre-made Chinese parts which they tell the client are custom made in there shop. After growing California Custom Iron to the recognized name that has become by many of the finest home builders in the Sacramento and San Francisco/San Jose area and will continue to make known to all builders and home owners. Most of our clients have recognized quality and nothing but the best and unique will do in there home’s. That is why the steel spiral staircases and exquisite iron grand staircases are truly made 100% in our Northern California fabrication shop. So please feel free to browse our web site or request a brochure to view the quality spiral staircases, iron railing and grand staircases that we have been known for.


Not just tall, but AMAZING!

Banded Spiral Staircase

Los Gatos California has been the recent destination for a spiral staircase that we believe needs to be mentioned. Instead of a normal staircase which is just to the second story of your home, we always try to separate ourselves from everyone else and show people that there is a world of difference when quality is the key concern and perfection is always a must. Now getting back to the staircase, this spiral staircase is three stories tall and fabricated with a more modern feel with horizontal pipes and a strong metal band that gorgeously surround the spiral stair. Ok, for California Custom Iron a three story stair may be pretty cool, but what really sets this staircase out from some of the other metal spiral staircases was the ability to install the staircase threw three round holes on the outside deck in Los Gatos. The pictures can truly show the beauty of the stair. Oh yeah, did I mention this stair is 8ft wide which provides enough room for three people to pass each other when walking up or down, which California Custom Iron Does not recommend for safety.
