How to pick a Steel fabricator

“When you think about it, there are two accidents of nature that have made it much easier for human technology to advance and flourish. One is the huge availability of iron ore. The second is the accessibility of vast quantities of oil and coal to power the production of iron. Without iron and energy, we probably would not have gotten nearly as far as we have today.” (Creating Steel)

Man has learned through ages of craftsmanship, trial, and error to refine iron ore by removing most of the impurities and turn it into steel. We have all heard of steel- whether it is in reference to “The Man of Steel”, “stronger than steel”, or even “Steel Magnolias”- it conjures mental pictures of strength, durability, and value. What may not come to mind is the artistry and beauty that is possible to achieve with this metal.

Steel has many uses in home and business construction or remodeling that may not be the first to come to mind, but that can create long-term stability and investment in a project. Perhaps you are considering a contemporary, modern feel for your project? Or you may be more inclined to considering a traditional look? What if you want a complete departure from any known look and want to imbue the project with your own, personal statement? You need the assistance of a craftsman who can see your vision and translate that into your project.

How to pick a Steel fabricator

Whether you are planning a commercial or residential project you need to work with a company with industry and design experience, who can take you from the planning process all the way to installation, and who will be hands-on partners with you to ensure a quality finished product. What are some considerations that will make the process work for you?

Does the company offer resources that are known for quality and reliability?

Lower prices typically mean lower quality. When you consider that steel products are a long-term investment in the building project and extend the cost over the lifetime of the structure, it is better to ensure that you are getting the best quality for your home or business.

What educational knowledge does the company bring to the project?

Are there architects and engineers, draftsmen, project managers, skilled carpenters, and people with industrial technology backgrounds working as part of the team? What about CAD design, award winning projects, and professional proposals? A comprehensive representation of all facets of the process will ensure that you have the best knowledge the industry can offer when planning your project.
