Questions for Planning Welding Projects

When you're planning a do-it-yourself home improvement job that involves metalwork, leave the welding to a professional to avoid accidents. As you interview prospective welders, keep some vital questions in mind to ensure you hire the right person for your job.

  • Do you have ASME certification?
    The American Society of Mechanical Engineers is the nationally-recognized credentialing body for welders. The society gives its certifications in particular types of welding, including TIG, MIG and arc. Hiring a contractor with certification means you're getting an expert in the field.

  • What do you do to ensure the quality of your work?
    If you're having your fire escape or a safety railing welded, you'll want to make sure that the work is sturdy and secure. Welders should be able to explain how they perform inspections on completed projects and what type of guarantees they give on their work.

  • Do you have insurance, and what type of safety precautions do you take?
    The bright light and heat from welding machines can cause severe injuries without the proper protection. Professional welders must always wear a helmet and body protection while working. You'll also want to make sure the welder is fully insured to cover not only potential accidents, but also possible damage to your property.

  • What are your rates?
    Some welders charge different rates for different types of welding, such as one price for MIG and another price for arc. The cost may be determined by the project or by how long it takes. If you're looking for a welding supply company from which to purchase welding machinery, inquire about the possibility of renting a TIG or other welding unit. Some companies will not only lease equipment, but also supply you with safety products like helmets at no cost during the rental period.
  • American Welding Society
    For all welding professionals across the country, our association provides helpful resources and information in the industry. Make sure you have the latest industry information from our association.

    Traditionally, professional welders learn their craft on the jobsite. However, the complexities of modern welding mean that most now enroll in some type of formal training. Welding courses are often offered at vocational schools and community colleges.

    A potential welder requires manual dexterity, physical fitness and the ability to operate computerized welding machines. Engineers are sometimes consulted for more difficult tasks. It is vital that a welder knows which of the many techniques is most suited to a specific use or material. For example, TIG welding is generally preferred over the similar MIG technique for automotive purposes, because it is easier to inspect.

    MIG and TIG are not the only welding techniques used. Various other forms of arc welding are also commonly used, including plasma and submerged arc welding. Another very common technique is spot resistance. Laser welding has its place in the modern world. Although not all employees will know every single one of these techniques, versatility is important. Both metal and plastic are welded using various techniques. Metals may range from soft aluminum to tough titanium. Steel, an important structural material, is commonly welded in large scale applications.

    Welders may work on construction sites, fusing structural elements. Pipes are also important. Welding experts commonly work in factories making various products using welding robots and other machines.

    Safety is important, and welders are required to wear special helmets, face guards and gloves. Accidents still happen and it is important to follow appropriate procedures.

    Welding supply stores sell welding equipment and related gear like grinders. They also sell the metal wires and plastic rods used in several techniques. Electrodes of various materials are vital to most modern techniques. A supply store will also sell helmets and protective clothing.

    Expert welders are needed in a variety of areas ranging from construction to small construction projects.
