Experience & Capabilities

metal fabricationPrior to hiring any metal fabrication companies, be sure to look at any online reviews of previous work. Also, many companies have a specialty, so make sure the one you choose can handle your specific job. 

Company Mission & Makeup

How is the company organized? Is it a smaller establishment? While this is usually not an issue, you want to be sure the company you hire has the capabilities to hire quality welders, as well as the facilities to handle your job. Take a tour of where the bulk of work will take place, and review the company’s mission statement to ensure their work practices align with your values. 

Proof of Quality Work 

Make sure the company you’re interviewing can show you specific examples of work that is similar to your job. You want to hire a quality company that specializes in your need, and has a good track record of quality work. 


At the end of the day, price matters. The welder you want on your job should be able to show you a list of competencies they have attained over the years. While it might cost you more to hire more experienced welders, the quality of work will pay for itself. 

Customer Service

Feeling comfortable with your vendor is of utmost importance. Be sure your metal fabrication company has a clear understanding of your vision and can explain how they will execute it. They should always be available to answer any questions throughout the timeline of the job.
