Best Service

Jim Athan is the BEST! I needed an iron gate before my puppy arrived. He made it happen and it, and the matching handrails, are gorgeous. He is a consummate professional and his work and installation is flawless. You truly get what you pay for. Yes, you can price check and I’m sure you’ll find someone cheaper. But you WON’T find someone better. His work is pure gold. I was DELIGHTED to give him this review. I rarely do this, but I really want others to know how talented and professional he is.

Very Happy

Very happy with the custom corten steel planter boxes Jim and his team created for my kitchen garden this spring. Jim came up with a sturdy design that fit my needs exactly, and was easy to work with throughout the process. The boxes are beautiful, and my first season’s harvest was a success! Thanks Jim!

Highly Recommended

I have worked with Ace Iron Works for two projects, so far, and both times have been successes. The attractive-looking and solid railings and handrails have made my properties safer and a little more elegant, and for that I am grateful. I highly recommend.

Great Job

We love our new railing, it’s a piece of art. We had our upstairs pony walls removed and installed the RIB031 interior Bannister. It’s a wavy iron design that looks incredible. The railing was built and installed on time. His team also followed up to do a paint touch up when I asked. Jim and his team are very friendly and did a great job! I highly recommend using ace iron works when looking for railing.

We love our new railings! They are perfect! Thanks Ace Iron Works! We strongly recommend their services, give them a call!

About the Owner

My name is James Athan, owner of Ace Iron Works. My friends call me "The Greek". I have been a Seattle native since 1965. My roots are Greek, and I grew up in the restaurant business with my family. Ever since I was a kid, my father tried to encourage me into the restaurant business.

I realized at a young age, that was not what I wanted having watched my father work 7 days most weeks and long hours.

From a young age, I loved building and creating things.

In 1992, my best friend (Clint) gave me the idea to start an ornamental iron shop, and the rest is history!

The iron works business enabled me to build and create long-lasting beauty and value.

In 1995/1998 and 2001, we were hand-picked to fabricate interior iron railings for the Street of Dreams. In 2010, my business was chosen to build the Iron Fence at the Pacific Science Center at the front of the Space Needle. Also, in 2018, we were hand-picked to build the iron fencing around the two Koi ponds at Seattle Historical Volunteer Park.

Throughout the years, we have had the privilege of creating and building thousands of iron projects for residential and commercial customers, and met tons of great people from all walks of life.

My father taught me at a young age that life is what you make, and the customer is always right (even when they're not) LOL!


Ace Iron Works is my passion, and one of the best feelings in life is to know you worked hard for what you have been given and to make people happy.

For any reason at all, call me directly at (206) 679-3678 or text anytime, 7 days a week!

Best, James "The Greek" Athan
