Is an Ugly Custom Welding Job a Bad One?

When referring to an exceptional person, one might say they are beautiful on the inside and the outside. Clearly, lacking one or the other leaves you with someone who might not be your ideal soulmate, best friend, or even someone you want to spend any time with. Then again, some people are content with one or the other. Is the same true for custom welding? Must it look good? Could you have an ugly weld that is metallurgically sound and be happy with it?

custom welding professional is always going to aim for a smooth

The first thing to understand is that a rough-looking weld can be durable and strong, and a very nice-looking weld could be inferior and break. Ideally, you do want your custom welding to be beautiful inside and out, especially if the product is something that is visible. For example, if you needed custom ductwork that will be tucked away in an attic or other hidden area, you won’t be as concerned about aesthetics as you would be if you were putting the ducts in the high ceiling of a restaurant where your patrons will see them.

A quality custom welding professional is always going to aim for a smooth, aesthetically pleasing result while putting their main focus on passing quality control testing and meeting the code and specification requirements for the project. The reason is that although an ugly weld might not be a concern, often a poor-looking weld doesn’t deliver the same strength, either.
