Good solid work. They build a nice door-frame and installed it properly to fit in the opening which they reinforced with angle iron (to their design which was better than mine). They even bought new lumber (and painted it) when it became clear they could not re-use the existing door-boards (and only charged me for the cost of the boards). Door is hung correctly and has two locks. Read earlier reviews about them being hard to reach / follow-up and I believe there were some issues in May-June but theyseem to have it all together now. Would recommend them for similar work.

Bini came recommended by Capital Locksmith. Decent reviews on AngiesList sealed the deal. I needed work done on a specific day, in between tenants on a rental property, so I contacted Bini 4 weeks in advance. I emailed Bini a picture of both a window and door I wanted extensions around a lock installed on. He responded saying iron mesh was a better option, but that he could do either for 185. I have a written record of him on email saying that the total cost was $185. This was in direct response to my "Please quote me the bottom line for both door and window". He said the particular day I had in mind wouldn't be a problem and his office would contact me to schedule. A woman from his office contacted me and I scheduled an appointment for 4 weeks out. A week later, the same woman called me back to confirm my appointment on the wrong day. I told her my appointment was still 3 weeks away and she apologized for the inconvenience. Three business days before the appointment, I called the office to confirm. The man who answered said he had no record of my appointment, and that the girl who took my information down no longer worked there. His tone implied that this was a recurring problem with that girl, which was why she was no longer there. I told him I contacted Bini as well 4 weeks earlier. He put me on hold and contacted Bini. He then advised me to speak to Bini directly. I called Bini and reminded him of our earlier conversation. He didn't recall and asked that I forward him pictures again. I did so, including the email thread where he quoted me 185. He asked that I text him the appt address, which I did. The morning of the appointment came, and Bini was nowhere to be seen. 15 minutes after the scheduled time, I called Bini and his phone went straight to voicemail. I called the office and another new employee on his first day picked up. He said he had no record of my appointment, and I told him I had spoken with Bini directly a few days earlier. He said Bini was expected in the office that morning and that he would try and clear this up. I then got a voicemail from Bini saying he was on his way and would be there in 15 minutes. He finally showed up 30 minutes after the scheduled time. My guess is he forgot. I showed him the window and door. One of his apprentices showed up to do the majority of the work. Bini left halfway through asking me to inspect his guy's work for acceptance once he was finished. His guy did a good job with the mesh installation. He then asked me for a check for 370. I told him Bini quoted me 185. He got Bini on the phone and Bini said the total was 370. I told Bini I had a quote from him saying 185. He had no recollection of that email thread. I pulled it up on my phone and read it to him verbatim. He argued that he meant 185 per iron mesh, but his quote specifically said "total cost" is 185. He argued that the material cost alone was more than 185, and that he must've been mistaken. I certainly understand that, but the fact of the matter is that he quoted me 185 total. This argument went on for about 10 minutes and got contentious at points. He finally relented to 185, acting as if he was doing me a favor by giving me half off. After I cut the check and his apprentice left, I noticed my exterior door had spray paint overspray all over it. It was not adequately protected before spray painting. I spent another hour chipping off black paint chips off a white door.

He did an excellent job. The estimate process was pretty fantastic. The gate that he did for me, it's bigger than a three way door. I game him the measurements and he designed it. He welded it in my yard to make sure it fit. It was custom installed.

I arranged everything by phone and email. Since the issue was on the outside of the house, I told Binis I was in no hurry and they could come by and do the job whenever they were in the area. They did the job a few days after I contacted them and emailed me an invoice for the agreed upon $125. The job was less than an hour of work, so this seemed like a reasonable rate to me, figuring in travel time to get to my house in Petworth. They rewelded just the spots that had broken previously. Had I been there I would have asked them to do a more complete job by welding along the entire edge of each slidelock. This is why I'm rating them a "C" for quality and a "B" overall. Otherwise the interaction went fine and I would use them again.

Description of Work
I had two slide locks on my front door security gate who's welds had broken due to somebody yanking them open. I took pictures of the issue and emailed them to three providers on Angieslist. Binis responded with a quote of $125 and I accepted their quote.

Bini came out in person for the measurements and estimate. He was very responsiveness to both phone and email. Estimate was right on target. He was punctual and work was done quickly. One note, he was not able to do one of our more complicated requests, but he was upfront about it and we appreciated that. Not a big deal. Overall, great service from this company!

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. I hired Binis Ironworks because there was recently a security incident in my house and wanted to be safe before I traveled overseas. Thus I needed work done within a week. Binis Ironworks was the only company that responded so quickly and for a reasonable price. Mr. Haile came earlier in the week to take a look at what was needed and then provided an estimate. I added a window afterward and he came by another time to take a look and appropriately revised the estimate. I said I absolutely needed the work done before I left for overseas which was about a week later. He said he could take care of it. Come installation day, it was raining pretty hard. I was wondering whether the work would be done given the weather conditions. But Mr. Haile came with a helper and worked all day through the heavy rain to get everything done. They made sure to keep me informed of what they were doing and pointed out reasons for slight variations (required by code or in order to make things more secure). Overall, the work looks great and I feel my house is very secure. Mr. Haile said he would come back when I returned to take care of a few paint touchups. I really have nothing but positive things to say. Mr. Haile said some of the less than positive reviews might have been when Mr. Bini (his business partner) was dealing with the severe illness of a family member. But he said things were on track. If Mr. Haile is an indication of where this company is going, I'm sure everything will be alright. Very highly recommended.

Everything he has done has been professional. I am very happy with the creativity he used when designing the front porch cover. The appearance of our house has improved significantly because of the quality of his work. Every detail has been attended to.

Description of Work
Bini has done extensive work on our home. He created a new wrought iron porch cover. He removed some old security bars, and reworked the old iron work on our 3rd floor patio. He even fixed an old iron candelabra for me. We are so happy with him we will have him do more work on our old metal and wood front door and fix the old iron work on the top of our house.

The experience with Bini's Ironworks went very well. Nebu came out on June 4 to see the job, and was able to provide a written estimate the next day, which was a very good price compared to other estimates we got. The crew came on June 18-19 to remove the old rear fence, take down the chain link fence in our front yard, and to dig the posts for the rear gate. They even removed stuff from our yard that was not in the contract, going above and beyond what was asked of them. The new cast iron gate was fabricated and installed on June 25. The craftsmanship on the gate is excellent and we look forward to using it for many years to come.

Bini was extremely responsive during the quote process. However, once I contracted for his services, things immediately went downhill. I wanted the job done quickly and Bini assured me he could have it done in three days, which I was surprised by, but he seemed confident. We agreed upon the time for installation and he left. Three days later, he did not show up at the agreed-upon time. I called him and he said it would be two more days. Day five rolled around, again Bini failed to materialize at the agreed-upon time. Again, when I called, he told me two more days. AGAIN two days later he didn't show up at the agreed-upon time - for the third time, no call or email to let me know. Finally, he came to install the next day. Everything looked good. Two days later, however, there was already rust forming at the weld-joints. I called him about it and he came back, took everything off and refinished it. Fine. Now a few weeks later, there's more rust. At the end of the day, I was disappointed in Bini's craftsmanship, but real problem was lack of communication. I was flabbergasted that he missed an appointment THREE TIMES without any prior notice.

Description of Work
built and installed custom security door and simple window bars on two windows.

Bini was very responsive to the request for visiting the property and providing a quote for the required work. He also provided quotes for future work so that I may budge/plan. After agreeing on the design, price and signing the contract, Bini stated that the new gate would ready for installation in one week. The gate was ready for installation as promised and we scheduled all the work to be done on Saturday. He also painted the new gate to exactly match the french door by using the manufacturer's paint. Note: Make sure to check all installation and repairs prior to Bini Ironwork employees leaving the job site since I called them back on-site three times to make corrections/repairs.. After installtion, chaning the locks, and repairing the railing, Bini Ironwork employees started packing up all their equipment as it appeared they were finished. I discovered one lock was not "keyed" to match the others and I was told by one employee (not Bini) that I was to receive different keys for each lock - not according to the contract - Bini arrived and quickly corrected this. After changing the front gate dead-bolt lock which was now in a slightly different position, the gate no longer was able to lock. I called them back to correct this since they had packed up their tools. They knotched a new hole in the old exterior wood around the security gate for the dead-bolt. Knowly the thin strip of wood around the dead-bolt could easily be ripped apart, I called them back again (since they had packed up their tools) to include a metal strike plate. Bini was very responsive to each request and provided instructions to his employees. He came back the following Thursday to add additional cement for securing the front railing and to make repairs needed to allow the installed basement gate deadbolt to lock. Considering Bini's responsiveness to my requests, I would hire him again for additional iron work.

Send an email through Binis website to get an estimate for windows bars on 2 windows. Bini called me the next day and gave me and estimate over the phone based on my measurements of the windows, I was surprised when he said he could come out that day to remeasure them himself. He was very professional and pleasant and was in and out in 30 minutes. We scheduled to have the work on 04/03, he came over, installed the bars, talked to my husband about future work we wanted to have done and said "just give me a call when we were ready to start". I experience was very good so I really don't have a don't.

The owner is "Ben", and he was very easy to work with over the phone, and offered a good price, and did an excellent repair of an exterior iron gate that was incorrectly installed by the previous welder. He removed it and installed it correctly. If you need an iron gate, or a repair, call him! He even drove to Baltimore.

Half of the welds on one gate have failed and the rough edges have torn Obe's pads several times. The sharp edges are dangerous to Obe and to anyone who uses the gate. The soldering I did before hiring Bini held longer than his work did. He came with a welding torch that kept sputtering out. He worked on my sidewalk and left scorch marks that are still visible. He was HOURS late and this was after repeated calls to schedule. He doesn't return calls. We discussed another project and he was to "get back to me to schedule it". Haven't heard from him and am no longer interested in doing so. I stated his price was fair because it would have been average if the work had held. But it didn't. So maybe it was not so fair after all. Was a waste of money. Won't go there again. Advise you not to either. Yeah, I'm still mad.

Had some wrought iron fencing components welded together to make two custom gates to contain my 100 lb Anatolian Shepherd Dog who bounces on them. Don't remember the exact price I paid. The amount above is an approximate memory. It could have been more.

Bad experience. Initially was all good correspondence over phone texting, exchanging photos of work needed done and estimate. Very responsive. He was not the cheapest but he said he would give another 10% off if I would get both railing and ladders for window wells done at the same time. I was impressed by how quickly he responded. I asked to see the finished product in person and he invited me to go to his shop in northest neighborhood of D.C. I took a day off from work (in anticipation of traffic from NOVA to heart of DC). Once there he appeared friendly and we quickly went over some design options. He did a drawing and we confirmed pricing. He wanted to add 5% for VA tax then retracted, he asked for 50% upfront. He alluded that he can be flexible if it's all cash transaction, etc. He said customer would nitpick on his work and refuse to pay if he didn't ask for the large deposit. I was reluctant because of the "table is turned once payment is made" notion, but didn't persist, as I figured that his rating on Angie's was good and that was probably alright. Either of us was playing hard ball or anything. We wrapped up the negotiation quickly. He said he would come out and do a final measurement that day. By the time I returned from Northest D.C. to Fairfax it was past noon. I waited until 3:30PM to call him and find out whether he was still going to make it out that day for the measurements (knowing the traffic I didn't want to push for that). He answered the call, then immediately hung up on me as soon as he heard my voice. I was dumbfounded a bit. I called back right away for three times with no answering back. There was no explanation as to why his manner turned all of a sudden. I was angry about wasting better part of a day off from work for the trip to NE DC. I was apparently screened-out by him. Maybe I wasn't the right color, gender, age. Maybe I didn't appear naive enough for him to prey on. Who knows.
