Commercial roofing fabrication is an involved process—one that Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. does in-house. We fabricate the sheet metal needed for customers’ roofing systems, streamlining our process without sacrificing quality. To give you insight into the benefits of and common questions about in-house roofing fabrication, we’ve outlined a quick guide.  

4 Benefits of In-House Roofing Fabrication 

1. Eliminating the Middleman

In-house fabrication of custom, specialty, and industrial products removes the middlemen that would normally be involved in a project. By eliminating the need for a fabrication vendor, we can oversee your project from start to finish. We know the status of your fabrication products at all times, decreasing the potential for complications along the way. 

2. Streamlining a Project

As we can oversee the entire job, having an in-house fabricator means that our customers’ projects are streamlined. When fabrication is outsourced, third-party vendors have their own timelines in mind, which may not be aligned with the contractor’s or the customer’s expectations. Our fabrication service allows for the efficiency, accuracy, and quality that our customers expect. 

3. Having Access to Efficient Customization

When your contractor outsources fabrication services, another person is added to the mix. However, when working with a roofer equipped with in-house fabrication, customers can communicate with them directly. This direct communication makes customization an easier process for the customer, as nothing is lost in translation.

4. Fitting Projects into A Smaller Budget

Outsourcing fabrication in a roofing project takes time and money. When a roofing contractor can take out the middleman, the company doesn’t spend as much, and therefore can pass that savings along to their customers. 

Commonly Asked Questions

Commercial roofing fabrication is not a topic that people outside of the roofing industry usually know much about—until they need it. Here are a few of the most common questions we hear from our customers. 

  • What is metal fabrication?

    Fabrication is the process used to cut, assemble, or otherwise form sheet metal into a finished product.

  • What is customized metal fabrication?

    Customized sheet metal fabrication is the process of creating individual sheet metal components for a specific project, which is more effective and of a higher quality than mass-produced sheet metal.

  • What types of metals are used in fabrication?

    Most commonly, the following metals are used in fabrication: aluminum, stainless steel, copper, prefinished steel, and galvanized steel.

  • Do fabricators help with design?

    Yes, however, many fabricators charge for design services. Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc., on the other hand, never charges for design services, providing our customers with all custom sheet metal fabrication.
