What is a Sheet Metal Worker? ….Primarily, sheet metal workers install and service all types of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems as well as fabricate the majority of their components including duct-work. In addition to HVAC work, sheet metal workers fabricate and install coping and flashing, lockers and bathroom partitions, coolers, freezers, kitchen equipment, metal roofs, metal wall panel systems, siding, rain gutters, downspouts, skylights, customized precision equipment, and many other products made from metal sheets. The process of sheet metal work involves shearing, forming, fabricating, welding, soldering and assembling a host of items made from galvanized steel, iron, steel, copper, nickel alloy, stainless steel, aluminum and sometimes plastic. The work takes place on industrial, commercial, residential and institutional construction sites, industrial plants, and in the electrical power systems sector of the construction industry. On a residential level, when your furnace and air conditioning system breaks down, you can call and rely on us to correctly repair your old system or install a new one. A Sheet Metal Worker performs work in all temperatures, most weather conditions, in all space conditions for example: inside or outside, in confined spaces, underneath houses in crawl spaces, in attics, in high spaces like off of ladders, scaffolding, lifts or on a rooftop, in dirty, smelly environments, in clean rooms, etc. In short, a Sheet Metal Worker goes WHEREVER the work is at! Sheet Metal Workers pass on their knowledge of the trade to the next generation through the apprenticeship's educational process which includes in-classroom and on the job training.
