    They do lots of it here - gates, window bars , some fancy, some not.
    Metal roofing - sure
    The pay may not suit you... gotta be lower than TO

    Plan to set up your own shop for custom iron working. Making the decorative iron bars for windows and stuff like that. I am sure you have seen what is being made here.

    If you set up a modern shop, there is no limit as to what you could do all along the North Coast. Think about it.

    Set up yourself. If you can put detail and good design into door and window security then you'll pick up the work. One thing for sure is that with every house that goes up there is security needed installed on all those windows, doors and driveways.
