5 Things to Consider When Hiring a Welding Company

Welding helps to create a strong bond between two different kinds of metals using heat and gases. Even though the task may seem easy, you require a professional welding company to oversee the welding process. You can always count on Advantage Manufacturing for your welding requirements. We offer machine shop, fabrication and welding services.

Have a look at the things to be considered before hiring a welding company:

  1. Experience

    Whether it’s a simple welding task or a complicated one, it’s important to check the experience of the company that you are going to hire. Advantage Manufacturing has over 15 years of experience and multiple certifications. We are members of the Canadian Transportation Equipment Association (CTEA) and Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB). Our certifications include:

    -CWB certification

    -Alberta Construction Safety Association certification

    -National Standard Certificate of Recognition

  2. Reputation


    Asking for a referral is a wise thing to do because the company you hire should have a strong reputation in this business. You can ask your friends or family to suggest one. You can also research online and choose one that has good ratings. 

    Positive customer reviews are a must when it comes to hiring a welding company. Customers mostly leave reviews in two kinds of situations. First, when they are incredibly pleased with the service and second, when they are extremely disappointed. So read the reviews before sealing a deal.

  3. Equipment

    Check with the company officials on whether they have all the necessary equipment or not. Modern machinery can reduce the amount of time taken in welding. It is also reflected in the quality of work that is delivered.

  4. Location

    The location where the welding takes place helps in calculating the time taken to complete the work and delivering the product to your location. If the location is near your place, then you can save the cost of transportation and time.

  5. Price

    You also have to consider the charges too as some companies may charge more than usual. Ensure that you select a company that charges you a reasonable amount for the welding services.
