Angie List

Just wanted to let you all know how great the railing looks.  Karen and I love it.  It really makes the look we were going for.  Please give or thanks to your team for a job well done.

Matthews Family - Thanks

People ask "Why Watson?" or perhaps we are a few dollars higher and they think all Iron Shops are the same.... Take a look at the pictures below.


This gate was done by a well known Iron Shop near us. The client had to run them off the job when they actually installed and proclaimed victory.

Why Watson: We care about the finished product. Does it cost us more to fabricate, clean and paint? Yes because when you look at these pictures...you can tell the other guys just want your money. We want you to come back again and send your friends.

Reworking a new gate from competitor.

Our new railing was installed today. It looks great, exactly what we wanted. The installers arrived on time and left the job site clean. If needed I would use Watson again.

Did a fantastic job on a complicated, curved iron porch railing in Myers Park, one that had been designed by a large, local architectural firm here in Charlotte. Watson's representative made multiple site visits during the manufacturing of the rail to ensure proper look, fit & placement. Job well done.

Replacing other Iron Shops work

Always willing to replace bad work. Competitor strikes again. Amazing builders continue to put up with this type of work.

Maybe some people do not understand what a good Iron Railing or Gate job is supposed look like?
