It is commonly used for building frames, piping, and moldings. Used for all kinds of materials, mitered joints are also commonly used for metals.
While there are many factors that determine the durability of a mitered joint, the way the 2 parts are joined has a big say in determining durability. This is where proper welding comes into the picture. Getting the weld right will significantly improve the miter joint’s durability.
