|I have used Alisdair on three occasions now to fabricate and install decorative gates and handrails. Alisdair has always been helpful regarding design and manufacture. He is reliable and honest and his work is of an excellent standard. Thankyou Alisdair. |

|Delighted with Mr. Reids work. He repaired and replaced some cast iron outside balustrade stair railings. I would have no hesitation in recommending his workmanship. Very professional. |

|Alastair recently fitted a decorative handrail to the outside of my parent's house. He worked quickly and efficiently, we were very pleased with the finished results and had no hesitation in recommending him to my Aunt for a similar job. I would happily recommend Alastair to anyone|
|We needed to fix the front of our traditional fireplace after it had been vandalised when a gas coal fire was installed years ago and looked for a blacksmith. Fortunately for us, we found Alistair. He created a new front to match the original design. His work is superb and we found it reasonable. For him, it was a small job but he likes the chance to be creative and he couldn't have been more helpful. It is good to meet someone who genuinely takes such a pride in his work and apart from anything else, he is a pleasure to meet. S. Hamilton|
|I only required a small job to move a hinge from my seat rail for the right fitment. Alastair was very friendly and was able to do a great job! I would recommend him to anyone needing a welder. Thanks|
|I contacted Reid Metalwork after frustrated attempts to get original blacksmith to do repairs. The service I received was second to none, Alastair came to look the day i called and the work he carried out was fantastic! My gates are better than they were when new and for a fantastic price!|
|Alastair installed a garden fence for me in July 2010. His input into the design was fantastic and the installation process was done much quicker than expected. I would use him again with no worries.|
|I needed a repair carried out on an old tram seat which is used as a garden seat, and was not sure whether any firm would be interested in doing what seemed to me to be a small job. Mr Reid took a great deal of trouble to match the original metalwork and the work was carried out promptly. It looks great and was well worth the reasonable amount he charged.|
|I had a struggle to find someone to take on a rather unusual job - I've never really required metal work done before. I found Alastair Reid on Google. He was in touch straight away. Very enthusiastic, quick and an obvious high level of skill.|
Exellent all round!
|top quality fast and friendly service. I have and will be recomending REID METAL WORK to anyone requiring their service in future.|
