Jose and his crew did a beautiful job repairing and painting our wrought iron rear fence. They did a tremendous amount of prep, removing a lot of rust, filling pinholes from previous repair welds, filing / sanding / grinding, and getting everything down to smooth metal. That took days of patient, methodical work in the hot sun. It would have been very easy to cut corners, but his crew never did. I inspected daily (after they left) and their work was top notch.
Working with Jose was pleasant and collaborative. Prior to beginning, we had a couple conversations about the posts rusting out. The previous owner had plugged them with plastic seals. Other iron guys had come out and recommended various other versions of plastic plugs.
Jose suggested welding on some caps that he would cut from spare metal. This cost me near nothing. As such, it would have been easy to do a quick & dirty job because this was an extra and, really, who is going to get on a ladder and check out those caps? Well, I did and I took a picture of a cap in the middle of the job at one of the hardest to reach posts and you can see that the welds are clean.
He primed, allowed a day for the primer to cure, then came back and painted. The results are flawless. I have no doubt that with the effort he put in this fence (which gets brutal sunlight every day, all day), I'll be just as happy 6 years from now.
Use Jose and his guys with confidence that you'll get a top tier job.
