We recently had a driveway gate and pedestrian gate installed and I would not hesitate to recommend Touch of Class Aluminum & Ironworks. They really are a first class company. Hootan is very knowledgeable, and has a great eye for detail and design. They were very professional and friendly throughout the whole process, from the initial discussion/estimate right through to the delivery and installation. If you are looking for a professional company, quality gates and very reasonable prices, speak to Hootan and you wont be disappointed.
Thanks Stephen & Kate.

We just recently contacted Hootan from Touch of Class to design a custom gate and fence panel. Hootan was very helpful, asking us questions to determine our needs. He was very meticulous in his design and sent blue prints for our approval before going to production. The finished product shows Hootans attention to detail and ensuring that we got what we expected. Installed, the fence and gate which looks great next to our house. Thanks Hootan for a great job.

We are Golden Ears Cheesecrafters in Maple Ridge. If you want to see some beautiful gates, custom designed by Hootan at Touch of Class, drive on over. I randomly Googled driveway gates and looked for one that was fairly local to Maple Ridge.
Touch of Class was the first and only company I called. I always get three quotes but after meeting Hootan decided then and there to go with his company. An enjoyable experience from design to installation.

We had a very positive experience, dealing with Hootan at Touch of Class. We found him to be very thorough and helpful in designing our Double Driveway Gate. The quality of the materials and workmanship is excellent.
We chose to hang the gate ourselves, and ran into a small problem. The inner core of our gate posts were built of concrete block. We attached the supplied gate hinges to the posts using anchor bolts. Then we mortared 1” thick stone veneer to the concrete posts (insetting the hinges into the stonework). Our problem, was that the hinge barrels now didn’t extend far enough out, to allow the gate to swing fully open.
Once we contacted Hootan with the problem, he worked very efficiently to rectify the issue by modifying our hinges. Our gate now hangs perfectly and swings fully open. (for anyone planning on the same type of construction of posts, be sure to advise that you are planning on insetting the hinges with stone, brick etc.) The hinges are of excellent quality… the gate swings open smoothly with just a gentle push. The Q-Bolt system for locking the gate operates very nicely, and is attractive.
We would highly recommend Touch of Class for their excellent service, good price point, and quality of product.

Very satisfied with Touch of Class. As part of a renovation in our downtown Vancouver strata condo building (circa 1910), we had to replace a stair railing in the lobby. Hootan took our design ideas and fabricated a fully-engineered wrought iron railing that we are completely satisfied with. The final product is well built, solidly installed, suits the retro decor, and gets lots of compliments. Hootan's price (including the engineer's cost) was competitive and he was easy to work with. Thanks Hootan!
