Metal Trellis FAQ



Q: Who are you guys?

A: We are a family owned CNC shop that produces metal panels and artwork for customers across the United States.



Q: What type of material is used? 

A: Currently, all of our products are constructed of raw .14 gauge steel. 



Q: Are they rustic?

A: The steel is new when shipped, however if exposed to moisture, they will rust over time. This is a natural process and completely out of our control. A finish will need to be applied to protect against long term rusting. 


Q: Do you offer painting or powder coating?

A: For now, powder coating is only available for the panels.

You can select from four powder coating colors in the drop down menu when adding to cart. After the panel selection is made, please add the correct powder coating quantity in relation to the amount of panels needed.

Example: Add 2 panels to cart, directly underneath add 2 powder coating quantities. If no powder coating is selected, the panel will be shipped in it's natural steel state.

Please allow 2-3 weeks processing for powder coat processing. The panels are sandblasted and powder coated locally via third party. Most non powder coated panels ship within 1-7 days, depending on quantity. 

If you choose to spray paint yourself, it is recommended to use Rustoleum or Krylon brand paint. These can be purchased at a relatively low price from major hardware stores.

Q: How do you produce my metal art?

A: Your design is precisely cut on our CNC plasma cutting system using the latest plasma technology.



Q: What is the surface like?

A: All of our steel is new from the factory. It has a naturally smooth surface. We grind and smooth the steel before shipment.


Q: Can you customize my idea?

A: For the most part, yes. We can add names and increase sizes with no issue. If you have a completely new design in mind, simply email us and include a clear image if possible. We will be happy to discuss it with you.



 Q: How long before I receive my product? 

A: Generally, most orders are shipped within one week. Custom orders or large quantities can take slightly longer. Powder coated panels usually take around 2-3 weeks processing, depending on quantity. 



Q: Is shipping free? 

A: All of our standard shop products and variations include free shipping. Shipping prices can increase if sizes are increased.

Hawaii, Alaska and International shipping may be increased due to higher shipping costs. Please contact for a shipping quote. 

Custom sizes larger than our standard sizes can increase shipping prices via UPS. Any size larger than 60" height / 26" width generally jumps up to around $200.

Beyond 60" would reach freight shipping which would generally be around $250 - $500 via UPS freight services, depending on location. Freight commercial shipping is generally much cheaper



Q: How does the wall art hang?

A: We can add mounting holes upon request. We do not add holes unless requested by the customer. We recommend using adhesive hanging strips or hanging tape if nails aren’t desired. 



Q: Do you sell internationally?

A: Generally, we sell within the United States. Please contact if you are an international resident looking for a shipping quote. Canadian shipping is generally cheaper as compared to overseas shipping to the United States. 



Q: Do you offer refunds? 

A: If you are not satisfied with your product we will provide a 30 day money back guarantee for single piece orders only. Multiple quantities, powder coated or custom orders are not accepted. 

Simply return the product to the return address and we will refund your purchase. We do not pay shipping on returns. 



Q: What do customers think overall?

A: We’ve had many positive reviews of our products and customer service. Many customers are impressed with the quality.



Trellis & Privacy Screen Q & A


Q: Can you create custom sized panels?

A: We can do most custom sizes. However, extremely large or small panels may not be advised. Freight shipping may also be required for larger sizes. You can simply email us the following information for a quote and we will respond with a recommendation:

1. Dimensions 

2. Quantity 

3. Ground stakes - Yes or No

4. Type of design or name of product

5. Zip code if freight is needed (Commercial or Residential, Lift gate Needed?)



Q: What size are the ground stakes in relation to the metal trellis/privacy screens? 

A: The ground stakes are 1/2” steel round bar and are usually 11-12” in length from the bottom of the panel. The stakes are spot welded up the entire backside of the panels for maximum strength. 



Q: Can holes be added to the panels?

A: Holes can be added upon request. We generally add 3/16” diameter holes as our standard size. 



Q: What is the natural color of the steel?

A: The steel comes directly from our supplier. So we have no control over the natural color. The steel typically has a natural gray tone that may contain darker spots in certain areas. 



Q: How are my panels shipped?

A: We ship all of our products via UPS ground. We take great pride in ensuring your product can face the often unpredictable shipping environment. However from time to time, damage and incidents do occur, please send a picture of any damage and we will be happy to resolve any issues. 


Q: Can you provide spacers?

A: We offer aluminum spacers. The spacers are “cylinder” shaped and are designed to sit between the panel and the mounting surface. The spacers may be purchased on the metal trellis/privacy screen page.


Q: Do you provide screws or anchors?

A: At this time we do not provide screws or anchors for mounting. We leave that up to the customer to determine what type of screws are needed for their unique surface. 



Thank you! If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us with any concerns. We look forward to working with you.
