At Sam’s Craft Iron, we have been outfitting Edmonton and area businesses with their handcrafted, ornamental, and metal fabrication needs for over 30 years. From residential to industrial applications, we often face questions regarding the benefits of steel fabrication. To help explain the topic, and to hopefully provide some answers, here are a few insights from our team.

What is Steel Fabrication

Steel fabrication refers to the construction of metal structures by cutting, bending, and assembling parts. The result is sturdy, reliable structures that benefit the job site or home.

What Are the Benefits?

There are lots of reasons steel fabrication is a preferred option for many of our clients. Some of the most notable perks include:


Compared to working with concrete, steel is considerably cheaper and far less likely to experience the cracks or faults occasionally experienced with concrete. Steel fabrication also eliminates the potential for concrete spillage, delays, and other related complications.

Structural Integrity

One of the predominate reasons steel has risen to prominence is the sheer sturdiness of the product. Once assembled, steel structures are durable, easily performing their intended function without any worries.

Built to Last

As we mentioned above, steel fabricated structures are designed to withstand the test of time and active use. The durability of steel means your product will retain its functionality in the long-term. If you’re looking for a sustainable return on your investment, steel fabrication is a reliable bet.
