Does Home Depot Cut Metal In 2022?
Home Depot does cut metal in some of its stores in 2022. However, it depends on the metal type, as Home Depot only cuts metal pipes. For your metal sheets, metal rods, or metal roofing, no in-store outlet of Home Depot will be able to cut them.
In such a case scenario, the best option is to purchase or rent the metal cutting tools at Home Depot and have a professional cut your metals (do not go cutting metals unless you’re experienced). Another option is to visit other stores like Lowe’s and Ace Hardware and check out their metal-cutting services.
Does Home Depot Cut Metal Piping?
Provided that you purchased the metal piping at any Home Depot location and can provide proof in the form of a receipt, Home Depot will cut and thread your metal pipes for free.
Note that this service is limited to certain stores. The best way around is to find a close store to you on the store locator, phone them and confirm what they cut and what they don’t. Once you’ve found one that will cut metal piping, you can go there.
If, on the off chance that you can’t find a metal-piping-cutting Home Depot store close to you and wish to DIY the process, you should use this Home Depot How To Cut Pipe and Tubing guide. It is super detailed with images.
Does Home Depot Cut Aluminum?
Cutting aluminum at Home Depot isn’t a general service offered, so it’s best to phone your local stores to confirm. Also, once you purchase the aluminum from Home Depot, you can politely ask for it to be cut, but note that employees there are not precision aluminum cutters, so do not expect a 100% accurate job. Alternatively, you can rent/buy the tools and cut the aluminum yourself.
