    I reached out to Danny and Heath for a new product I was working on. So happy I did. They we're not only patient with my changes and request they came thru with everything they said they would. I will now be moving into production with them based on this first project and excited to keep this project not only in the USA but also support their long lasting business! Thanks guys!!!

  • Dave J.


    Art fabricated intricate, custom designed beam hangers per my spec for a patio roof project. He was great to work with and provided a high quality product with exacting dimensions to my requirements in a quick turnaround time. So glad I went to Reliable Sheet Metal for the work!!! They are professionals you can rely on for great service and top-notch work. If I could I'd give them 10 stars!

  • Cannon P.


    The ability to handle multiple complex manufacturing transactions; a work ethic that won't quit; their understanding and protection of [client's] technology; and their ability to turn around "rush" orders are the skills and qualities which first come to mind when I think of Reliable.
