Great overall experience with Steve's Iron. Steve's schedule is busy, but fortunately for us, we were able to get everything measured, fabricated, painted and installed within 2 weeks. The price for his service is very reasonable. Everything turned out great!

Steve responded to my initial phone call, I sent him pictures of what I needed, and we set an appointment right away. He was prompt, organized and exceeded my expectations. I would refer him confidently to any friends for iron work.

My experience with Steve went well. He made two gates for me at a reasonable price. He arrived on time to our first appointment. He estimated 3 weeks to make the gates and schedule the installation. Although it took a bit longer due to a hold up with the powder coating, he kept in touch and was very professional. I would use him again and recommend him.

Steve did a great job on our iron gate! He created a beautiful spiral design for my front gate and we have received compliments from everyone who has seen it. It was done on a very timely manner and was reasonably priced too!

Steve's Iron was great as you can see in my before and after picture of my white then black gate. The 1971 original gate was completely rusted though on the bottom left so Steve replaced that area with 1x1 iron so well you can't even see where the join is. He spent 3 hours sanding 45 years worth of rust and peeling white paint off the double gate and repainted it black. Very happy with the result and the fair price ($725) for repairing a double gate with 45 years worth of neglect. Quick turn around - he picked the gate up on Wed and reinstalled it on Monday.

I got Steve's card from another handyman in San Clemente. He called me right back and was at the property the next day with a quote. The work was done well and his follow up was great. Thanks Steve!

I found Steve's Iron here on Yelp. I had a rusted-out fence that was a real eyesore due to neglect on my 18 yr old home, and I finally decided to do something about it. I contacted Steve and found him to be easy to work with. He runs a very popular business so I had to schedule time, but it was well worth it. We met a week later and came up with a great design, a fair price, and he agreed to get it installed in 30 days. Guess what, it was installed in just 2 weeks. Now thats what Im talking about! And the new fence - super cool. A great new design that ties into the home and my landscape perfectly. One other thing - I also had a gate on other side of my house that had a bent latch - he fixed it on the spot while the new fence was being put in. All my fence issues - done, and done!

We are extremely pleased with the work that Steve did repairing a disintegrated wrought iron fence. Not only is he punctual, he is tidy, conscientious and very kind. He had to remove two sections of our fence which meant our swimming pool was not completely enclosed. He was worried about safety to the point that he completed the repair and installation well before the estimated completion date. We would highly recommend Steve.

I found Steve on Yelp and gave him a call. He called me back within 15 minutes, and I told him about my rusted fence. It runs the full width of my backyard, and was so rusted in some places that there were chunks missing out of it. I had little hope that it could be fixed. I sent Steve some pictures, and he said he could fix it and gave me a rough idea of pricing over the phone. We made an appointment for a couple of days later, and he wrote up a formal quote. He wound up taking out the entire fence in pieces to work on back at his shop. He told me it would take 2 to 3 weeks, but a week later he let me know that it was done! He wound up building some sections from scratch; others he was able to repair. Everything was back in within a few hours and it looks great. I'd reccomend him hightly. Very profesiional, shows up on time, and does beautiful work.

Steve responded to my phone call right away and scheduled an appointment to repair our gate within 2 days. He arrived and explained what it would cost and got approval before commencing the work. It took more time than expected and he explained the reason. He left it to me to decide whether to pay for the additional amount of time. I would recommend Steve because he is very professional and knew how to resolve the problem. Very happy with the job.

Steve did a great job fixing my gate and replacing the rusted bottom that was scraping. He gave me a written quote on the spot and returned a few days later and completed the job. My gate now works perfectly and it looks great.

Steve made me so happy today...my front iron gate opens!!! It stuck so badly that visitors always thought the gate was locked. I called Steve, texted him photos of the jammed gate and he called with a quote. He was able to schedule the repairs the same day. Such a small inconvenience, why had I waited? Call Steve and let him make you happy, I highly recommend the quality of his work. Thanks, Steve!

I called Steve today and sent him a picture of the fence sections that needed repair. He promptly called me back, gave a quote, and less than 4 hours later had all 3 sections repaired and primed!
The repair work looks great and his cost was exactly as quoted. It is rare now days that you get this level of service at a reasonable price.

I called Steve regarding repairs to my fence. When he called back he asked for pictures of the fence in order to give me an estimate on time and money. I waited 2 weeks for a call back...no such luck. So, I called him again and was given the usual contractor excuse of "big job, busy...but send me another picture". Wanting to give the guy the benefit of the doubt I sent the picture and have been waiting for a month for a call back. If you just want to make the call without actually getting the job done, call Steve; otherwise keep looking.

Steve Valencia is prompt, quick, and professional. We had a seriously damaged and rusted wrought iron fencing and gates and had resigned ourselves to thinking we had to purchase all new fencing, until we came across Steve's Iron on a Google search out of desperation. Steve called us back promptly and came out to our home the next day. Because they were so badly dremoved them and took them back to his shop. What was really shocking is that literally the next day, he had them done and reinstalled. Now, they look brand new, beautiful and I am sure will last us for many years to come. We very much appreciate how quickly Steve provided us a quote, got to work on them, and (amazingly) restored them in just a day.
We could not be happier with the quality of the work and the fair price. We HIGHLY recommend you talk to Steve before you decide to replace your wrought iron fencing and gates!

Steve was great to work with. I had a rusted patio gate that had also detached from the hinge. It looks great now and the job was done quickly and on time. I would not hesitate using his services again.

Steve was happy to do our small job - base of two gate posts rusted out. Prompt return calls, honest quote, perfect job. Our job took only a couple of hours, but Steve impressed me me as a straight-up, honest craftsman I recommend without hesitation.

I rarely offer a recommendation, because most the time I am disappointed. Steve Valencia, owner of Steve's Iron is the exception. It has been such a great pleasure working with Steve. I hired him to do a small job, and he responded quickly and professionally. He then performed beyond my expectations, by completing the job immediately and to perfection. I recommend his services to anyone in need of any kind of ironwork. Although the job was small, he treated me like I was his biggest customer. He also did beautiful work, and my wife and I were amazed at the outcome.Thank you Steve.

I would highly recommend Steve at "Steves Iron" to do your repair work. He was prompt in returning my call, on time for his appointment and was able to give me a estimate of the work needed to be done to repair my gate and fix it on the spot. His work was high quality and I don't think my gate should need repair ever again. He was at my home about 4 hours and was nice and neat. Everything looked great when he left. His truck is loaded with all the proper equipment to get the job done the first time, no running to a store to buy anything.
Give Steve an opportunity to do your job if you want it done right!
Happy Home owner: Pam D.
Just a note to say thanks for a job " Well Done". We are delighted with the outcome of the iron gate project. We look forward to possible additional work in the days ahead. Again, we are grateful for your skills and abilities.

This year's heavy rains caused our two wrought iron gates to shift. One had to be lifted and dragged over a cement path to open or close, and the other had moved so much that it actually hit the opposite post and could not be closed at all.
I found FenceandGateRepair.com on the internet and called the number listed on their website. Steve came out the following afternoon to look at the job and give us an estimate, then returned about an hour later to complete the work. As it turned out, the hinges had to be removed and welded into new positions and the latches likewise repositioned. Steve was very professional, worked hard and did an awesome job. Both gates now work as well or maybe even better than they did when the fences were installed, and the price for all the work was very reasonable.
It is so nice to find someone who is honest, does good work and does it for a fair price. We would definitely recommend this company for welding services.
I have a iron gate that leads into my patio area. The design of the gate allowed water to collect in the bottom one-third of the gate and over time the gate rusted through. I called Steve to look at the gate and see what could be done. Steve made suggestion on re-engineering the gate to eliminate the problem and I gave him the job.
Now the gate has been reinstalled with the modifications. It is a much better design and it looks great also.
I found Steve to be a very professional person that does what he says he will do in the time promised. I thought that his fee was fair and that I got full value for the money I spent. Going forward if I have any other issues with metal gates Steve will be the first person I call.

Welding is the process of melting metals or thermoplastics and adding a filler material to fill gaps and produce a secure coalescence between the original materials. Welding naturally produces a stronger bond than soldering or brazing because the original materials are melted and interact in a molten form to create a juncture that is nearly as strong (sometimes as strong or stronger than) the surrounding materials. Welding rods, wire, or sticks of differing materials act as fillers and/or catalysts in forming the bond.
Although welding is performed in a number of ways, in this commercial context we are concerned with the various types of electric arc and gas flame welding. These methods are simpler and less expensive than plasma, laser, ultra sound, forge, or pressure welding. For commercial and residential applications oxy-acetylene welding, shielded and non-shielded arc welding, MIG and TIG welding are sufficient to fabricate or repair common applications.
Oxy-acetylene welding combines oxygen and a fuel (acetylene) to produce an extremely hot flame that melts metal. A filler material is usually added to supply material for filling space between the materials to be joined. Oxy-acetylene torches are also used for metal cutting. The hot flame cuts metal by melting a kerf through the material. Waste material flows away as oxide slag.
Non-shielded arc welding requires a strong electrical source at high current. Thicker materials demand higher current. The welder must melt the two pieces to be joined, forming and maintaining a constant-sized plasma pool as the weld advances. Advanced skill is required to produce a clean, even weld.
Shielded arc welding is also commonly known as stick welding. The stick, or welding rod, can be made of any number of alloys and is usually coated with a flux material that, as it is consumed in the heat, forms a protective gaseous shield around the weld that allows the operator to work without the need for exact control, speed and electrical current.
MIG Welding (metal inert gas welding) uses a consumable wire that is automatically or semi-automatically fed through a welding gun along with an inert gas to shield the weld from splash-producing ambient atmosphere oxygen and other active gas traces. This process can produce a clean, even weld that is strong and unimpaired by bubbles or impure slag. MIG is the most commonly used welding method in commercial applications.
TIG Welding is especially suited for lightweight stainless steel, aluminum, magnesium, and copper alloys. It employs a non-consumable tungsten electrode and an inert shielding gas, usually argon, to produce a finely controlled weld. The advantage of fine control is balanced by the disadvantage of being much slower than other types of welding. A filler metal is usually added although some TIG welds can be made autogenously with no filler.
