This review is one year overdue !! Oscar did a fantastic job in building us a custom decorative iron gate in Sept 2011. And after a year, the high quality work is STILL very apparent. Fist of all, Oscar was very professional and helpful throughout the entire process. We came up with a prelim design and he refined it further. The work was fairly priced and he used quality materials. For example, I wanted a gate that would not sag, wobble, rattle, or go out of alignment. Oscar used a heavy 2" x 2" vertical post and sank it into concrete about 18" deep. Quite honestly, I think this gate will last as long as this house is still standing ! Workmanship was very good and the finish was well done. We built a pool in the backyard at the same time, so the gate had to comply with Los Angeles building codes. A nit-picky city inspector found fault with the gate, which, in my opinion, was unfounded. But I was in no position to argue with a building inspector, so we just had to suck it up and modify the gate. We came up with a solution. It did cost extra $$, but the fix needed two separate trips by Oscar's installation crew and additional materials. We came up with a fair price for the modifications. After a year, still very happy with what Oscar built for us. I highly recommend him if you want quality work. We need to keep good people in business .
