The quote process was exceptionally quick and the price was fair. Payment was easy, and all I had to do was show up, call them to advise I was there, and someone brought the goods out for me to load up (this is the Covid-era, remember). Nothing better than simple, quick, and safe.

Good assortment of metal forms, angles, etc.

Cut-Off pieces could be better.
When the blade cut is not straight … you should allow a slight increase in length.

I don’t know about the products as this is not my area of expertise. So far the products all seem to be suitable for the job at hand. It is more the service that I totally appreciated. Lex and the guys always went above and beyond to help me each time I visited the shop. Lex is full of good information and connections and was willing to help provide some of that to help our business in another area when we were in a jam. The guys were always great about helping me to take the products out to the van.

I would definitely recommend Lex and her team and will surely be back!
