I am so appreciative of the superb work that Victor and his team did in totally restoring my patio security bars.They did an awesome job of installation and clean-up afterwards. Victor even replaced a broken door lock (which was not a part of the original project) free of charge.
The cost was really affordable,and It is obvious that Victor is more concerned about the integrity of his work rather than charging astronomical prices.I do not hesitate to highly recommend Samson Iron Works for your security needs.
Wow, WoW, & WOW is all I can say :-)! This owner and his company made and installed two burglar bar doors at my new home that look awesome. He is dependable and honest and I am glad I found him through a web search. Thanks again Victor and your awersome helper for taking great care of my problem and being the professionals that you are. I have been singing your praises to others and recommending "you" for their iron works. May God Almighty continue to bless you and your business is my prayer!!!

I had some work done by Victor at Samson Iron Works and I could not be more pleased. He was punctual each time he came out and the work was exceptional. I could not be happier with my burglar bars. You have to look really close to tell I have burglar bars. That is exactly what I wanted.
I just wanted to take the time to say how extremely pleased I am with the burglar bars and the installation. The thought of having burglar bars was very stressful for me, I was concerned that they would look like bars and be ugly. I was so pleased that Victor was able to make them look like window panes. The installers were very professional and very tidy with everything, making sure to clean up as they progressed from room to room. Victor addressed every concern I had and even sent pictures to me of the bars before bringing them for installation which I greatly appreciated. I have already referred my neighbors to him.
I called Samson Iron Works on a Saturday and they came over to do a measurement for a burglar bar cage for a central unit that had been destroyed by a thief. He gave me a price that I could work with and gave me a time, which was the next Wednesday. He came and delivered as promised. He did the job in a quick, timely and professional way that was very business oriented. I can surely refer customers to him. Thanks.
Worth every penny! Professional in every sense of the word. Victor, Stacy, and the other employees did a great job. They just finished today, so I should know!
Old school quality, customer care, and service. I had entertained thoughts of using Lowes Installation services, but after reading the reviews of Samson Iron Works, decided to go with them.
Honest, great product, done early, professional installation with paint matching, and little extras that they will do for free just to please their customer. I'd recommend them to anyone seeking to upgrade their physical security. Very pleasant surprise. T
Best Contractor Experience Ever
Over the past few years crime has increased a great deal in our area and we decided to increase our home security. We started with upgrading our alarm system, then with a considerable amount of hesitation, decided to get burglar bars.
We were reluctant to do this for two reasons: First and most important, we have had some very negative experiences with a few different contractors in the past few years (not related to burglar/security bars), covering all of the typical reasons; substandard materials, unsatisfactory craftsmanship, grossly exceeding quoted time of completion and cost, dishonesty/lack of communication, etc. The second, less important reason was aesthetics – simply stated, we have always found burglar bars to be tacky in appearance.
Victor Sampson is one of the nicest, most easy going men I've had the pleasure to meet. We met with him in our home and were delighted to never get the feeling we were dealing with a salesman as we had in all previous experiences. Victor listened to and addressed our concerns, gave us a quote we accepted and returned in a couple of weeks for the installation.
Everything was done as promised, without hassle or misinformation, and was completed in an even shorter time frame than we were prepared for. The quality was top notch, each set of bars fit the doors and windows they were designed for perfectly and were painted a matching color (suggested by Victor to match our blinds and front door) so the bars almost disappear when viewing from the distance of the street or sidewalk. The finished product is not the least bit tacky, as we feared it might be. It blends almost seemlessly.
Victor even made a special trip for a minor adjustment to the locks per our request a month after the installation was complete and refused to take a dime from us for his trip, time and service.
We are very pleased with our experience with Sampson Iron Works, are very happy to have met Victor and will recommend all of our friends and family to him, and would recommend anyone out there that needs an additional level of home or business security to call Victor Sampson.
I hired Samson Iron Works to build some burglar bars and doors for me. His crew came out and they were great. Very hard workers and worked great together as a crew. Until Victor arrived. He criticized every thing they did and had them running in circles. Really don't like the way he treated his employees.
My crew for this job was new...not as experienced, and made a lot of mistakes....which took abnormally long to complete the installation. I used EVERY opportunity to teach my employees what NOT to do and why things have to be done correctly, according to the blueprints...at the shop. Proud to say, the employees, got the point, and are keeping the standards high, as they should be. The customer does not know what is considered BEST WORK PRACTICES, and could be fooled into accepting poor quality work. This WILL NOT HAPPEN at Samson Iron Works. So unfortunately, Victor did what was necessary to correct mistakes at the jobsite, and the customer unknowingly benefited.
Prompt, great consultation, reasonable pricing for service performed. I was very pleased with the end result. Samson's was able to match the paint on the burglar bars to the color of my house -- I hadn't even considered that as a possibility. I would definitely use them for future services.
These guys were prompt, kind and efficient. The perfect combination for customer service. The crew made sure they understood my needs and that I was helped, making my satisfaction a priority instead of their bottom dollar. They were even kind enough to come back as a follow-up to make some adjustments after the sale. Wish I had more doors to secure!!
Victor @ Samson Ironworks has been the most helpful and professional person I have worked with. He really stepped up to the plate for someone I was working with and we depended on his work to be completed prior to us being able to do what we needed to do. Great guy, great business and I will refer him to anyone I come in contact. A++++.
I recently had Sampson Ironworks to come my home and install burglar bars. The process was very pleasant. The owner Victor came out to my home and discussed the different options with me. We talked about the fire escape exit types available for the bed rooms, styles of the bars, designs of entry doors, installation method, external/internal bars and available colors. He was very informative and patient with all my questions. He reviewed my home and gave me his recommendations. At the end of our first appointment, he gave me a quote and asked me to let him know. Being a good consumer, I had two other burglar bar companies come out and give me quotes. One company was cheaper and the other was more expensive. Sampson Iron works was the middle of the road.
I called Victor and let him know I would like to proceed with my installation. He was back out at my home the very next day. He measured all the windows and doors, brought samples of the fire escape exit for me to review, let me pick a color from a very wide selection of colors, and took my check for half the quoted price. He let me know he would need five business days to complete the work in his shop. During our conversations, I learned that Victor fabricates and paints all the equipment in his shop. He is an experienced welder and takes pride in his work.
Five business days later, I got all call from Victor letting me know that my bars were ready and they could come out any time to do the installation. They were at my house the next day for the installation. Victor and two of his employees did all the installation work. The installation process was very efficient. They unloaded each section to be installed, one at a time, and placed them at each window within the home. They took extreme care not to damage anything within my home. The installation process took approximately 5 hours. That’s installation of burglar bars on 8 windows and 3 doors. They used non-reversible screws and predrilled all the holes. All the bars were well painted with commercial oil base paint. I picked an off white color to match my curtains. Each window section was secured into the wall from the sides and the base of the window. There was enough room at the top that it was not necessary to adjust my pull down shades. The installation of each door was recessed into the door jam and with two dead bolts per door. The front door included a turn door handle, along with the two dead bolts, and decorative designs (which was free of charge).
Once all the bars were installed, they pained each screw used on the installation the same color as the bars. They vacuumed each work area, replaced curtains that needed to be moved, and took care to make sure everything was back into its’ place. One of window installations near my TV. They didn’t need to move it and were very careful. Once everything was done, Victor did a walk through with me and gave me the keys to my new security doors. As said, each door had two dead bolts. These dead bolts are designed to be tamper resistant and cannot be unscrewed without a key. All the dead bolts were keyed alike for my convenience . Victor had offered to key them the same as my house key, but I opted to take on the new key. I consider having the same key for everything about as wise as using the same password for everything. When they left my home I felt really good about the money spent. Do I sleep better at night? Your darn right.
To receive a well designed product coupled with first class service is rare these days. The only good way I could really thank Victor for his excellent work was to write this review. In knowing that, I took the extra time to let people know that if you’re in South East Texas and in the market for burglar bars, Sampson Ironworks is the way to go. They service from the Greater Houston Area to the Louisiana border. My only regret in getting to know Victor is that I’ll only get to do business with him again is if I move.
As a recent victim of a burglary, I was not sure who to call. Samson Iron Works was a referral to me and I’m very glad I called. Victor was very open and honest, and I found him to also be very dependable.
He evaluated my situation and actually provided a recommendation that was much less expensive than what I had expected. As a small business owner, it is nice to know there are good and honest hardworking guys to call during times of need.
Bars that won’t Budge!
Interviewed 15 companies by phone, invited 4 into my home to show me what they can do. These guys had the most secure bars. They are made out of quality materials with good clean welds. I can shake them with all my weight and they don’t budge.
Some of my windows required special treatment and I needed a security cage for my outside a/c unit.
I wanted the bars painted two different colors (they added no extra charge).
Then, I requested they complete the job in a rush because I would have kids(young adults) home alone in just a week. They worked all weekend and got the job done in less than a week. (they added no extra charge).
They produced the most secure bars, in the shortest time, the color I wanted, and my family is secure.....
I plan on calling them for another Iron job. I’m sure they can help.
My wife and I just moved into our new home 6/19/09 and were burglarized 6/22/10. Our home builder recommended Samson Iron, we called Victor and Daniel they were here the same day to give us a price. The price was GREAT. The bar are up and they look GREAT!!
Thank You, Samson Iron for peace of mind
