My Wife Colleen's Art

Graydie Welding does not repair or install vinyl or any other form of plastic, but we do remove and replace with real handrails and railings.

Here's a gaurantee you'll never get from my competitors
I guarantee my handrails will remain structurally sound forever and NEVER crack your steps
 
Graydie Welding is named after our daughters Graycie and Edie.
 

The newest member of the family. Been a rough 4 years for this poor girl. I have know idea where the SPCA got her but it must have been bad. She is scared of everything that moves, very timid, hard to get close to and covered with scars. The ends of her tail was cut off and her ear torn off. But it will be smooth sailing from here on out. Those ears! And you should hear the bark!

Thank you for the railing. The quality is outstanding. I will probably be calling you again in the spring to install the other railing.

After I do a job and get paid by a happy customer I don't normally come back and add onto that job for no charge. But this old timer is not only a retired police lieutenant but also Italian and he's just trying to do the best for his wife so he gets my full cooperation.

Graydie Welding does not now and has never used hollow balusters
just another reason I am able to gaurantee my work for life while my local competitors can not.
 
Moved a beautiful gazebo today, 9/2/2016
 
 
 

Working at the postal inspectors shooting range today. I have no idea who built and installed these handrails and although they look good they have already cracked the concrete in a dozen spots.

Don't let anyone bore big holes in your concrete brick block or stone!
 
 
 
 
 
Here is an entrance gate in Centerville De Irenee Dupont and I repaired together.
 

I welded the fixture mounts to these light poles in Wild Quail.

 
Stop by and pick something out.

Done. Paint tomorrow then ready for pickup and installation at a new Mexican restaurant opening in Rehoboth.

I just picked up my daughter at Central Middle School in Dover. Here's another example of why you should never let a contractor bore big holes in anything outside.

3 years ago...
 
It was 3 years ago I spent a week volunteering with artist Robert Stackhouse rebuilding his brass sculpture The Delaware Passage at The Copeland Sculpture Garden located on the grounds of The Delaware Art Museum. This was my first time brazing brass and it worked out fantastic!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Some recent welding at a shooting range. Very interesting.
 
Sold $80, flower box for a deck.
 
Here are some solid steel flower garden borders. These are for those take their gardening seriously as they are about half the price of a handrail the same length.
 
 
 
 
 

12 feet tall. This will make a great climbing rose trellis. It needs a tight climber so it will maintain the cross shape in flower. $200.

 
 
All position aluminum pipe welding on a rocking boat at Indian River Marina.
 
 
Come pick something out at 100 Old North Rd.
 
I did some volunteer work up at Riverview Cemetery in Wilmington today.
People keep ripping the perimeter fence apart so they can cut thru the cemetery instead of walking around.
 
Here's more aluminum railing headed for the scrap yard. People keep putting it in and I keep ripping it out. Installing this of aluminum handrail and railing is a mistake people only make once.
 
 
My work horse!
 
These crosses are about 16 inches. $40 each.
 
Today 5/28/2015 I will volunteer at Riverview Cemetery in Wilmington repairing some old wrought iron fence.
 
 
 
Here's an AC condenser guard I made and installed at Franks Wine in Wilmington. These run a little less than the condenser itself and while that seems like a lot it only seems like a lot until you have to replace the condenser.

Below is the steel Don Quixote Sculpture I was commissioned to replace.
 
My latest piece, a steel sculpture of Don Quixote. This was a $900 ordered piece that will be mounted in a garden in the suburbs of Washington DC. in 3 weeks.
