copper hood quality and construction -- what ? to ask

saydeMay 14, 2010

Thinking of having a copper range hood made. What questions should I be asking about quality and construction? For example, have seen mention of TIG welding on some sites -- is this important? Anyone willing to share a positive (or not) experience he/she has had with a copper hood manufacturer? I want a simple dome shape with no straps or trim. It is daunting to source this online from photos. Would appreciate pointers.
