Unlike a factory-built product, our doors and windows are hand-crafted wrought iron and steel. They are one-of-a-kind works of art and some of the marks add character and authenticity to the door. A certain of amount of uniqueness is to be expected and we believe it adds to the realness and beauty. Similar to a car, iron doors to develop minor scratches over time that need minimal touch-up.
To prevent any rust issues as your door ages, it is important to seal up any small scratches on the surface of the door. A touch-up kit may be requested for your doors and windows.
