Amazing metal fabricator. He really knows what he is doing. Perfect welds!Jan 18, 2017Verified
Well I had James over yesterday, I didn't have anything fancy or hard. He helped put a bar up for curtains and drilled holes for airplanes in my ceiling. Then, he obliged me with my last request; a birdhouse that i want to restore. He is going to fabricate me a new metal roof. He is calm and good at what he does. His pricing was very fair. I will contact him again, and refer him if someone else i know needs something. Thanks James. Update, 2017 He never gave me my birdhouse back.Sep 15, 2017Verified
Entire gate was fabricated and painted. James is the ultimate professional. Takes pride in his work, is fast and friendly and offered great pricing. Definitely would recommend.Feb 26, 2017Verified
I needed two metal frame side gates repaired where the spot welds had given away. James was VERY responsive and arrived the same day EARLY. Super work, I would highly recommend him.Dec 31, 2016Verified
Fence and Gate Repairs
Aug 2018-- I wanted about a 40" tall fence with arch-top gate built across my front porch, to prevent my 3 dogs from escaping every time the front door was opened. James replied promptly, and emailed me very nice, computer drawings. He came out shortly thereafter and we agreed on a price and the task. Within just a couple of days he was here ready to work. The project only took him about 2+ days. He communicated very very well, showed up on time, had a great attitude, and was easy to have working at our home. We really LOVE the job James did. It turned out very pretty, matches our other ironwork, and functions perfectly. It really upgrades our front entry. And I no longer have to chase my dogs all over the neighborhood!! Excellent job! Oh--the silver is the metal before it was painted. And please ignore the other random stuff lying around. We are in the middle of several other projects. :))Aug 20, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I prefer to quote by fixed price or if more than one item needs to be made by each unit.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to get all the facts and desires from the customer in regards to their request. I then computer generate drawings to submit to the customer for approval. If everything is agreed upon, I work up a price that is appropriate for the job. I am always flexible when it comes to meeting at a price.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I recently graduated from Long Beach City College. I completed a two year welding and metal fabrication program. This program has enhanced my skills and now I am applying these skills.
