HomeBlogTop Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Custom Welding Shop

Each day we all use products that are created from a variety of metals. Many of these require welding to join multiple pieces together. Sadly, more products are being manufactured overseas with poor-quality materials and manufacturing processes. That said, things just don’t last like they used to. So, you may find yourself needing something repaired or custom built to your needs with lasting quality. While we can appreciate the “do it yourself” mentality, there are a few things to consider when custom welding is required to repair or build a product.

Top Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Custom Welding Shop

Ask these questions before choosing a custom welding shop:

  • How much experience do you have? It’s no secret that experience is the greatest teacher, so you’ll want to work with a reputable welder who has years of experience under their belt. This experience means that your welder has worked on projects of all shapes and sizes and knows the proper techniques to execute the job perfectly.
  • Are you certified? AWS (American Welding Society), founded in 1919, is recognized as a worldwide source that develops professional welding and cutting standards. When a welder has met their strict standards, you can rely on the fact they are certified to perform specific welding tasks. This means your parts will be manufactured to the highest-quality standards.
  • Are you able to handle my project needs? You want to work with someone who can handle all tasks required to complete your project. You also want to be sure that the custom welding shop you work with has the right equipment and expertise to produce quality products. Be open and specific about your needs, so your project gets done right the first time.
