The Best Welders in Austin TX Are the Ones Verified as Safe To Hire

There is no state license required of welding contractors in Austin Texas and so no state standard for competency, though welding specifically for construction does require a certification from the AWS (American Welding Society) . Likewise, there is no legal requirement that welders in Austin TX have workers' comp insurance or liability insurance and both are critical to you. If an employee of theirs were injured on your property and the welding contractors don't have workers' comp, you will be held liable. Similarly if any accidental damage occurs to your property and the welders don't have liability insurance, you can be held responsible.

This makes it all the more significant that all welding contractors in Austin TX who bear The Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, good complaint record, verified worker's comp and liability insurance, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.

Some Welders in Austin TX Are Better Than Others

Some welding services in Austin only know how to do simple welding, with little expertise as fabricators for exotic metals and alloys like stainless steel welding, cast iron, monel, and inconel welders. Others can weld, but lack the specific expertise in doing so for steam pipe welding, boiler welding, welding for pipe fitting, mechanical piping for natural gas, condenser water piping and welding for process piping.  So it's important to identify your exact needs to the potential welder and then ask questions about what previous work they've done that exactly matches what you need.

Some welders work as fabricators in their own shop only, while others provide portable welding services, in which case you want one with liability insurance and workers comp insurance for your protection since you could otherwise be liable for any accident or an injury on your property.

It can also be a good idea to ask the welding contractor to describe to you what tools and equipment he will need for your specific job, such as the kind of welding rods to be used, R, S or U stamps, and the kind of welding to be performed, such as mig welding, stick welding, mag welding, arc welding, plasma arc welding, laser welding, pulse yag laser welding, electron beam welding. Hearing confident and knowledgable answers is an indication of experience doing the specific kind of welding service you are looking for. Of course, getting conflicting answers from more than one welder in Austin TX allows you to identify potential issues that one of them might have.
