I instal only solid steel. I do not instal cheap hollow metal pickets or aluminum. I also do not work with flimsy vinyl or any other form of plastic. They all can be torn apart with bare hands. I rip out hollow junk and plastic and replace it with solid steel on a regular basis. I will also not send a crew of cheap labor out to your house to do shoddy work with questionable material. When I work for you you get a welder showing up to weld solid steel. Don't get fast talked into cheap material installed by low paid labor. Plastic handrails make as much sense as wooden fire escapes. If you want the highest quality material that will not only add value to your property but last hundreds of years contact Graydie Welding at
I'll come right out and give you a free estimate your convenience.
Job sites are loud so e-mail me for faster service at, firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a mobile welding outfit, not a painting outfit. If you desire a professional paint job hire a professional painter.
Patience please, I'm working as fast as I can and have no secretary to help with scheduling. Thanks!

I fabricated this pool gate in my shop and installed it in Newark today, 7/18/2013.
This customer wants a little more brass accenting so I'll add this to his gate next time I make the trip north.
I fabricated this entrance gate in my shop and installed it here after installing the 2 support posts. The total for this gate and installation was just $3500! Call me if you want an entrance gate, even if you have no posts.
This is a Baltimore Oriole I made for a fan in Baltimore.
Brian this is a masterpiece in steel! You have outdone yourself. Thank you so much.
You are going to have a ton of people wanting one--do you want that much business? I can bring you a City Paper from Baltimore that everyone reads--an ad there would probably keep you busy the rest of your life, especially if you also do Ravens football stuff--their logo looks easier than the Bird you made for me as does the Orioles cartoon bird.
Imagine my surprise to find an old friend managing the local Keen Gas when I moved here 4 years ago.

I fabricated and installed this fire escape for a Delaware State Trooper. It was located inside the Wilmington city limits so that means it had to be inspected before an occupance permit could be issued for the structure. I'm happy to say it passed with flying colors and this was my first big job. I had no shop so I had to fabricate it on site. I also had to negotiate my way around a live power line with little insulation. This job worked out to $3000 for 2 landings and 2 sets of steps all with handrails.
A customer gave me this pic as a guide and had me make this for a wedding. I made a stand so it could set upright on a table.
