How to Choose the Best Metal Fabrication Shop

July 16, 2019

Choosing the right metal fabricator is just as important to the success of your project as having the right budget and design. With that said, how does one go about choosing a metal fabrication shop that works for them?

In today’s blog, we got into detail about what you should be looking for when choosing a metal fabrication shop to work with.

Facility and Capabilities

Sometimes, skill and expertise is not enough – a metal fabrication shop needs to have the latest tools and equipment onsite with technicians trained in their operation. This is because skill can only take you so far – for extremely precise and complex work, the latest CNC-powered technology can provide the most consistent results.

Also, it is important that you consider how extensive the services offered are. For instance, the use of the latest laser cutting technology could give you precise and high-quality projects within minutes. From laser cutting to welding, make sure they can cover you every step of the way in your project. Answering the following questions could help you as well:

  1. Can they handle metalworking projects catered to different industries?
  2. Are they willing to take on projects of smaller or larger quantities?
  3. Can they provide you with different options when it comes to choosing the most cost-effective materials?


Make sure you check in with the company’s certifications. Learn the company’s certifications and ask them about the processes they maintain in order to ensure the quality of their end product. For instance, Baseline Custom Fabricating is certified under the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) Div. 2. 1 and as such is equipped to offer you a complete range of custom services.

Customer Service

A good metal fabrication shop aims for excellent customer service above all. After all, business owners owe their existence to their customers. Look for a metal fabricator that considers the needs of their clients first. This can be easily found out, from testimonials online to your very first call with the company.

Indeed, choosing the right metal fabricator is easy if you know what to look for. So, keep the above factors in mind for your next metalworking project.
