How do I know if it's cheaper to repair my metal part rather than replacing it?
In most cases we can fix a broken, bent, or rusted item more cost effectively than they can be bought brand new. However, if we feel that this isn't the case with a particular part, we'll suggest otherwise, as we always consider what's in the best interest of our customers.
How do I determine which type of metal to use for a project?
Steel, aluminum, and stainless steel are the most common metals in use. Choosing between these, however, depends upon many factors, some of which are whether or not the item will be indoors or outdoors, if it's to be painted, if it's structural, or if it's decorative.
