"Two friends had gates designed and installed by Martin Steel Design, and this company came highly recommended. I did not shop with multiple vendors, which made the process and decision very easy for me. This company was friendly, responsive, listened to what I was envisioning, and provided a quotation in the detail that I wanted. Although they were willing to customize my rolling gate with the automatic drive motor as an option, after receiving their quotation, I elected to have everything installed at one time. Within a week, Larry and his very capable crew sawcut my driveway, installed the track, guard post and formed the foundation. Final design measurements and verifications were taken after this work was done. In two weeks the gate was fabricated and installed, and everything worked perfectly. Larry stressed utilizing quality materials throughout to withstand the wet climate in Kaneohe - from the aluminum shapes, to the paint finish, and the galvanized track. The focus of this company is quality, and fulfilling the customer's expectations and needs. I recommend Martin Steel Design for your fabrication needs. Pleasure to work with; great local company. "
"You have more than met my expectations on service, timeliness and of course, quality of work. Every day I come home from work and stare at my new custom gates and not only do I feel secure in my home, but also at the work of art. Mahalo. Very satisfied customer."
J Lee, DDS
"The professionalism and quality of work is well worth the investment we made. The attention to details was also an indication of the excellent job that was done on both my fence and gate. Thank you for your hard work and craftsmanship."
"Martin Steel Design was very responsive, professional and wholeheartedly committed to working with us to create our custom gate system. They took the time and effort at every step of the way to consult and advise us to make sure we were comfortable with our decisions. Although we were not familiar with Martin Steel Design, their positive attitude and commitment to scheduled appointments made us feel assured of getting quality products and services. Unlike larger companies, they took the time and paid attention to detail to explain the art and business of building our custom gate. We even got a chance to see work in progress at the warehouse and received a thorough explanation of the methods and materials used. We are 100% satisfied with the end result that has given our property an exceptional look and a great dual function in our gate systems. From design, to support, to even color selection, their suggestions were very practical and we were very comfortable in accepting all of them. All this combined with flexibilty in doing other associated work and a reasonable price made us feel like we made the right choice in selecting Martin Steel Design. Highly recommended to any homeowner!"
"I wanted to thank you (Martin Steel Design Co.) for the fine craftsmanship in the fabrication and installation of the railings, gates and fences. Quality of workmanship was paramount to the project and at first was somewhat apprehensive never having worked with Martin Steel Design before. I asked Martin Steel Design Co. to accomplish nearly impossible tasks and was extremely pleased with the results. The craftsmanship was absolutely superb for both site fabricated and shop fabricated work and the installation was performed in a neat and professional manner. I look forward to working with you again. Thank you.

"From initial shock to total satisfaction - In a nutshell, that was my total experience with Martin Steel Design Co. Let me explain. When I first called and requested a job quote for a hand rail installation in my yard, the price quoted gave me a shock. It was because I asked for a bronze hand rail which was the most expensive material. Joycelynn suggested a galvanized hand rail, the cost of which was more reasonable and agreeable. When I saw the many steps involved in preparing the rail, I had a better understanding of why the job cost that much. It was total satisfaction when I saw the quality of work Larry and his assistant performed. It was very labor intensive and they both showed the exacting skills needed to do quality work. My wife and I were totally satisfied with the completed work. Joycelynn suggested an architectural brown paint as the finishing touch, and it gave the rail the appearance of a bronze hand rail. Would we recommend them to our friends? Definitely yes!!
"Leonard and I are very pleased with the work you have done for us. Our veranda railings and entry gate are superb!!! The entire family likes it and we have many compliments from our neighbors and passerbys as well as from our visitors. We are amazed on how well you depicted the tropical plants especially the bird of paradise and heliconia. You have captured their true to life colors! Your keen attention to details is excellent. We are very satisfied with the workmanship and top quality and friendly service! We highly recommend your service!"
"The reason we chose MSDC... Design - Quality of Workmanship. Good follow through from beginning to end of project. We will highly recommend Martin Steel Design."
Tom and Diane Hall
"I highly recommend Martin Steel Design to anyone interested in the high quality craftsmanship with most artistic designs. They are dependable, reliable and very professional with sincere interest in the quality of their work. We have been extremely satisfied with their work. "
Dr. and Mrs. T. Parsa
"Thanks for a great job."
Dr. and Mrs. S. MacBride
"Very good work--Top quality. "
"The coordination of the work and the professionalism was way beyond most of my vendors that I use at QMC. Your staff did an "excellent" job! The railing in the lower level of Miller Street garage was necessary to address the safety of our visitors and staff from oncoming traffic. Thank you!"
M. Kimseu, Queen's Medical Center
"I'm very satisfied with the whole job. Everybody notices the difference from the other steel work. Thanks a lot Larry and Joycelynn."
"We are always recommending Martin Steel Design to our friends and family. The first thing everyone comments on when they come to our home is the gate. From design to finish, Joycelynn and Larry were the most professional and personable contractors that we have worked with since we've owned our home. The written estimate was very detailed. All work was completed as scheduled and exceeded our expectations. They made us feel like they wanted what we wanted. We wanted a fence of good quality that would compliment our existing wall and give our landscaping the look of a 5-star resort. And that's what we got!"
David and Theresa
"The new gates are beautiful. They exceed what I was expecting. I think the black is the best color after all. Do not hesitate to use me if a customer wants to hear about your excellent service."
Dr. R. Miller
"Design and workmanship were of the best quality. Timeliness and delivery of finished product was on schedule. Kudos to the company and its employees. I will not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone."
"It has been a pleasure working with your company and we are very pleased with the quality and design of our custom entry gate. The gate has really added value to our property and project and look forward to working with you again."
"First of all let me begin by saying what a pleasure it was to work with everyone in your company, that level of service, quality, and professionalism is very hard to find these days, I greatly appreciated how smooth everything went, even with the last minute change to the electrical. I look forward to working with you soon on the project I spoke with you about today. I have included a photo of the finished gate, but I had my camera on a low rez setting so the photo doesn't really do it justice. The gate looks great but what is really amazing is the short time it took to complete, too bad no one sees that in the photo!"
J. Adams, Nautique Services Co.
"Your website was very helpful in giving us ideas on what kind of entry gates we wanted for our home. Seeing before and after photos with the various designs helped us to come up with a design of our own. This wasn't made available to us by two other companies that came to do estimates. Informing us of all the possible options was also very helpful, as we then realized we had not considered everything like we thought we had. We were especially pleased with how our design was so perfectly reproduced from just a photo copy sample. In addition, we are very happy with the "all gate, without panel" opening on one side, making for a wider clearance; an option we were not aware of. The installation was also perfectly executed along with the custom color finish that now complements our house and wall so well. Thanks very much for bringing an idea to life. We couldn't be happier!"
"We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience of working with Martin Steel Design Company. From the moment we called for an appointment, their response was prompt, friendly and professional. They gave us an estimate that was very reasonable, and our project was completed before the projected date. Their ability to adjust to our uneven wall, their attention to detail...greatly impressed us. Not only did they leave us with a beautiful work of art, they left our property neat and clean. We highly recommend them and will be using them for future projects!"
"The reason we used your company was because of your professionalism and because you were recommended to us by a friend. We had called other companies who couldn't do what we wanted, but they said they could and never called us back. Your timeliness in responding was very fast and to make gates that look like wood without using real wood was a challenge, but we love the finished product. It's great your company believes in doing it right the first time. Thank you! Awesome workmanship!"
S. Tottori, DDS
"They are very professional. They tried to accomodate us with the design and price we can afford. They did a great job with my gate. It's great to work with Joycelynn and Larry."
"Mahalo for the excellent service and craftsmanship. Your work is truly professional. We really enjoy the gate."
"We would like to thank you for our beautifully constructed wrought iron fence and gates. It looks absolutely wonderful and adds a nice finished look to our house in addition to the added security. It has been a pleasure working with you throughout this process. You both have been personable, professional, and are very hard working. Your efforts are clearly evident in your finished product. We have truly enjoyed working with you and would highly recommend you to family and friends.
Dr. R. Jackson
"We are very happy with the beautiful work and again THANK YOU Martin Steel Design for such good and pretty fence railings!"
"Yes, we would recommend to friends and family"
"Customer relationship management was excellent and service to match. Happy customer!"
"We love our gates!"
D. Malia, Dower Realty Inc.
"The expertise of MSDC and their attention to details made it easier for us to decide on the design that suits our need. We will surely recommend this company to our friends. Thank you Larry and Joyce for a job well done!"
"I found your company through a recommendation by my neighbor. I am very happy with the finished product. You two did a fantastic job! I appreciated your input on the design and gained confidence in the durability of the workmanship when you described how the pipes were galvanized inside and out after being welded."
"After attempting to contact numerous other fencing companies, we ran across a Martin Steel Design Company sign in our neighborhood. We called and within a day, Joycelynn and Larry were at my house taking measurements for an estimate which I received via email after very little waiting. The price was fair and having already seen their workmanship, we decided to have Martin Steel Design help provide our fencing needs. To say the least, we are very satisfied with our fence. But more importantly, Joycelynn and Larry were very professional, polite and great to work with. I would highly recommend Martin Steel Design. I know who I'm calling if I have any more fencing needs!"
"Very artistic work!"
"The reason I chose Martin Steel Design was because of the price and because I wanted something different. I wanted the center post to be removable for bigger access. Although he never did it before, he tried and it works great. I like the way he blended the sides evenly then rise in the center. Although it took a while to complete it was completed in the timetable. I am very glad I waited. Thank you."
"The price you have us was reasonable and cheaper from the other companies who gave us a quote. I will absolutely refer your company to friends and relatives. The job was excellent, beautiful and awesome. Good job! and keep up the good work. Good Luck!!"
"The gates are beautiful "
"Of all the companies we contacted to do our gates (at least 10), only 3 returned our calls, only 2 came to do estimates, and only your company actually sent a proposal. We both felt very comfortable with your estimator, Joycelynn. She seemed very knowledgeable and was very helpful in planning our design. That alone probably was the main reason that made our decision to go with your company. Even if we would have gotten other proposals, we would have still went with your company. (Also your work is good!)"
"Thanks a lot for my nice and beautiful fence. I really appreciate what you have done to it. My yard looks nice now. Thank you and your workers. My granddaughter said you did a wonderful work too."
"Dependable, efficient and most especially excellent job quality."
"Good job, reasonable price"
"We chose this company out of the phone book. Their timely response, involvement in design and willingness to complete the job in a timely manner sealed the choice. After the job was complete, we are completely satisfied with both quality of materials and craftsmanship. "
"I saw one of the gates you did, and I was impressed. The service was excellent, and the price was right. I will absolutely refer you to my friends if they need your service."
