"called for an estimate, incredibly rude. i guess work is so abundant now that he may not care about future customers.

"I can not in good conscience recommend this company and would highly state: BUYER BEWARE ! ! ! I began looking for a company that could provide a rebuilt cylinder" head for my 2001 Ford F150 truck, as a result of my local mechanic not having luck finding any local shops in Texas having one available. I found
Head as a result of a GOOGLE
. I contacted
at
and he made it sound like this would be doable however he was not sure that he actually had a cylinder head available and that this could take a few days extra to locate. I made arrangements for
to contact my mechanic and discuss the details of finding the correct cylinder head based on a stamped marking on the old head. After some time and repeated calls between myself,
, and my mechanic, we finally found the correct number and the rebuilt head was ordered. IT took two weeks for
and my mechanic to finally call each other (after repeated calls from me to both) to get them to discuss what I needed. When the rebuilt head arrived, my mechanic placed it on the engine according to specs and found that the rocker arms would not stay on when the engine was started....and that the engine ran extremely badly. After repeated calls between
and my mechanic,
sent out rocker arm assembly for a 2005 Ford F150 (which were NOT the correct parts). I am still not sure where the miscommunication came from since
knew exactly what head they sent us in the first place. This back and forth activity ended up taking 3 weeks and I finally got frustrated and told my mechanic to remove the bad head and return it and all the parts and to send it back to
(after getting the RMA from
). I ended up buying a new head directly from the local FORD dealer and asking my mechanic to install it. This caused me to have to pay an additional $1200 to my mechanic; the cost to install the rebuilt head from
and then to remove it and send it back to
. I had to pay $1200 to have the original head removed and the new one from FORD installed.)
Head received the bad head and after repeated calls,
finally told me that they found that the head was fine and the reason for the rocker arm assembly falling out was because the valves were bent. "Bent Valves are usually caused as a result of installing the head incorrectly on the engine block". I contacted my mechanic and advised them of what
findings were and their response was that there was NO installation problem on their end - they follow the FORD shop manual exactly as shown, including the installation of the NEW head from FORD, which had they had NO issues with. SO,
says it was installed incorrectly. My Mechanic says it was sent to them that way.... a pointing of fingers with neither side admitting guilt.
stated that they will not REFUND any of the costs to install and remove the head that they provided and that If I wanted a refund on the head that they provided, I would have to pay them a $100.00 restocking fee. I asked
to further discuss with the owner and ask that they reconsider a partial payment for the work to remove and return the bad head and to provide a full refund on the bad head provided.
said he would do so and would get back to me soon. As of this writing, more than a month has gone by with NO refund provided and NO notification of any further action on their so called GUARANTEE. I can not in good conscience recommend this company and would highly state: BUYER BEWARE ! ! ! Lesson learned on my part is NEVER get between the Mechanic and wherever they get their parts from.

Metal Fabrication reviews in Chesapeake

F

Rating
Doesn't have a full crew for the job and often doesn't show up to work as promised. Paid nearly 70% of the contract but only 50% of the work was completed two months ago. Project should have taken 2 months to complete entirely and it's been 5 months and only half complete. Charged (and was paid) for an upgraded stucco system and continues to substitute inferior products. Used unlicensed employee to complete electrical work. Leaving exposed wires in the walls, and closing said wall. Attempted to blame another subcontractor, and discourage us from having a licensed electrician investigate thoroughly by assuring the work had been completed properly. Moved forward with a licensed electrician to investigate and repair. Upon doing so, multiple code violations including live wires were found. Working with this vendor has been terribly frustrating to say the least.

The railing went in fine. They even fixed one area that needed work but after they received their final payment things changed. Over the winter one of the support posts began to rust. This happened because it had not been welded correctly. A gap developed and rust leaked down the post and stained the blocks on our new front porch.
I called

probably 8 times and three times he assured me he would be out with a crew to repair this problem. He has never showed up. I also called the main office to get help on this.

Awesome Service!
I was having problem getting my boat started. I got
Chesapeake Metal Fabricators Provider Name Locked
's number for Craigslist. I called him last Sunday morning. I was surprised he answered right away. He was working on a job for a customer in Cadillac. He stopped by later that afternoon and took a look at my boat. I had already done some troubleshooting on my own and was nearly certain it was stator.
Chesapeake Metal Fabricators Provider Name Locked
tested it with multimeter and confirmed that the stator was infact shot. The arrangements we made is that I would order the part and he would charge $120 to install it. Since, I was going to be a way for a couple weeks and really wanted to get this fixed asap, I had the part delivered to his office. We kept in constant communication over the week. The part arrived and he installed it today.
He sent me about 6 pics showing the motor running and we had a nice talk over the phone. He offered to come out when I get ready to launch the boat for the season, to make sure there are no issues.
Chesapeake Metal Fabricators Provider Name Locked
's a good guy to know. He answers the phone right away, responds to emails, and is very professional and courteous. Aside from working on outboards he also does small engine repair and welding and fabricating.
I plan on keeping his number on file and will be using his services in the future.

Prepared the surface for new coating, by grinding down all layers down to the base concrete, taping and masking all adjacent surfaces, covering the pool, railing and plants; washed and cleaned entire area including walls, screening, and rafters; applied foundation base coat (2 layers), applied coating/paint; created design lines, and finished with speckled coat; removed all tape, cleaned the pool and filters. AMAZING JOB!!! The guys worked conscientiously and meticulously. They were extremely professional, answered ALL my questions, and explained every step of the process. I used this company 9-10 years ago and hired them again when I wanted a new look. They take pride in their work and IT SHOWS!! I highly recommend

Buyer beware! We had high hopes from this contractor with his promise he did things right. We asked for a 3 1/2 inch thick patio and he gave us exactly that without telling us that professionally it was a terrible choice. He leveled the ground up and then put supports in and poured the cement over 6inches above ground to 3 1/2 inches. Then he piled dirt along the edges to cover up his short cut. The rain washed that away in less than two days. We asked for a smooth concrete patio and their are so many imperfections in it. It's wavy in some areas dips in others textured in some and lines everywhere. He also got cement all over our siding and only cleaned up the "big areas" with a wire brush so now I have siding that's speckled with cement all the way up to my windows and wire scraped bottom siding.. Many arguments with this unprofessional contractor. Just about everything I asked him about he blamed me and my husband for. We are having to spend extra money to put up a retaining wall to protect our investment... The ground underneath wasn't leveled completely and no base so I hope the patio survives. To top it all he asked my husband after we were done painting the concrete and landscaping to fix his mistakes if he could come over and take a picture for his business! He said he gave us extra concrete but after measuring the dimensions we asked for were shortened about a foot on each side so I'm pretty sure I know where the extra concrete came from. We were going to use him for further house projects but have since changed our mind. To many short cuts and not professional enough to to educate the buyer on necessities when building and planning. Stay away!
