Smile Portland, OR Steel Fabricator Referral?

Hey everybody,

Do any of you Portland, OR Metro Area Skoolies have any referrals for a steel fab shop? I've got a couple of quotes for 48x96 20ga steele, but they seem high.

Thanks!

I would love to help but I am a ways from Portland.

If you get up North I have had good dealings with Everett Steel. They are 190 miles North of Portland.

Good luck!!

Thank you everyone. I appreciate the referrals. I called all, plus everyone I could find locally, and the best I could find for locale and price was Versitech Metal Fab in Portland. They can give me 18g, EG in 4x8 for $45. I don't know if there is a discount for volume, but that's not an issue. We are buying as we go.

Yehaw!

UGH! I must have been on the phone for about two hours talking to people and couldn't get close to that. Not only that, most peope are telling me they don't usually carry galvanized in stock. FRUStrating.

Thanks for letting me know. I obviously have more contacts to make.
