About V&M Ornamental Iron Works

We are a small business with only four years offering iron work in the Bay Area.

  Every door we make is unique & one of a kind. V&M has done a variety of iron doors, screen doors, glass iron doors, and wooden iron doors. I have done forged doors, custom made for residential and commercial properties. The most popular design are usually scrolls,  some modern iron doors usually contain floral designs.  […]

We pay strict attention to the details, and V&M has been in this line of work long enough to make sure these otherwise distinct pieces of iron flow together.
