At Northwest Sheet Metal, we take care to provide our customers high quality services personalized for their unique needs. We realize that our trade is not one that most people find easy to understand. Many things affect the way metals can be worked with. We are often asked, if there is a standard flashing for the situation. The simple answer is no. Every job has something that makes it different from the others. Every job can have a custom flashing that fits properly.
Any situation can be drawn in 3D to help everyone understand the sequence, size, and shape of all the components involved. We often do these drawings on site during meetings while everyone can have input. The ability to see building components on paper that don't yet exist on the site has proven to be very helpful.
We recently purchased a new computerized shear and bending machine capable of working with 14 gauge mild steel or 16 gauge stainless steel. The bending machine works through the use of a touch screen monitor where the parts are drawn using a CAD program, we draw the pieces, add the dimensions, gauge, angles and the machine does the rest. A file is created and saved in the computer with the CAD specification so another piece can be remade or changed easily. The capability to produce sheet metal parts has no limits. Nearly any flashings, or panels, radius or straight can be created.
