Looking to add the rustic charm, durability and timeless elegance of metal work? From tiny unique details to large scale projects, metal work is a highly technical process that involves a unique skill set and acute attention to detail. At New Antiquity, our team of experienced professionals specialize in a wide-spectrum of metal fabrication based right out of our shop in Bethel, CT.
Complete Design Build
Do you have a specific metal fabrication project in mind or do you want to let our talented team of designers draw inspiration from your general project idea to create a custom piece? Our process begins with an initial consultation, where we can get a better idea of your personal style and needs. From here, we tailor each project to the specific budget, material choice (repurposing/recycling when possible to reduce our environmental impact) and aesthetic design of you, the client. This includes shop drawings, which can be altered as you see fit. Fabrication takes place in our own shop, where we have a wide variety of equipment to create a virtually endless variety of metal work pieces. If you need to have the piece permanently installed in your residence or commercial building, this step is also completed by us – always keeping craftsmanship and quality at the forefront.
Metal Work Materials
Our metal work includes architectural and ornamental. While we have the capabilities to work with a wide variety of metals, some of our most common materials include:
Steel/Stainless Steel is an excellent material in terms of sustainability, as scraps from an old project can be melted down and recycled to form liquid steel to be morphed into something new. It’s an incredibly strong material that is also budget-friendly.
Brass, a material used for thousands of years, is often found in decorative pieces such as lighting, handrails, signage, wall fixtures, doorknobs, etc. due to its gold-like appearance. It features a high level of workability and is easily recyclable.
Bronze is a timeless material, typically featuring a dull gold color, with enhanced strength compared to copper. It’s often used in applications such as windows, doors, railings, decorative sculptures and more. It’s also resistant to corrosion.
Copper has a warm appearance, adding dynamic dimensions to designs and architectural pieces such as entrances, handrails, furniture, lighting and more. Choose between a selection of finishes and textures.
