Ben Lebron recently painted our house and did a fantastic job. You can tell that he pays close attention to detail and takes pride in his work. His prices are very reasonable and he finished painting our house in a timely manner. He was on time, respectful and put all of our needs first. I would recommend Ben Lebron to anyone that is looking for a professional painter that has reasonable rate. I would not hesitate to use his services again!

We hired Charles to install our metal security screen door. He worked with our work schedules and communicated well. Came out and quoted me on Friday morning and came back out on Sunday to do the work. He even had to run to Home Depot to get a part and stayed with the same price he originally quoted us. He was easy to work with and installed our door in under an hour. We would hire him again!

Ricardo was very responsive and professional. The value of the project was good. We chose two metal gates, and the final look was not what I expected on the inside. When I mentioned the issues I had to Ricardo, he immediately came back and repainted the gate. On reflection, I wished I had chosen a wood gate. I did not anticipate that a metal gate painted black would be very reflective so you can see every detail of the paint job. It looks a lot better now, but you can still see waves of paint. There was also an issue with a gap, which he fixed, but now there is glue on there that is visible. Overall, I think Ricardo is very easy to work with and offers an affordable value, and I feel fine as long as I don't look at the details too much.

Brian did an excellent job! He delivered as promised on his bid. I was impressed by how he wrote up his bid on the actual picture of the trees, so as to be assured as to what he was going to do. He trimmed two trees for me and they turned out beautifully..one of them was probably about 100 feet high. He took pride in his work and sculpted the trees as if he was an artist. He also cut down another very large Eucalyptus tree for me...it was probably 80 feet high. I was impressed by his climbing skills... he is like a monkey swinging from the branches as he skillfully and safely worked. I highly recommend him...very professional! Thank you Brian...greatly appreciate it!

Excellent service! Both of my metal gates came off in the last wind storm we had and Ben was able to get back up practically the same day. I sent a picture message for some advice and received a quote and an offer to come out since a job had cancelled on him. Less than an hour's work and both my gates are back up and functioning! These welds are much better than the original and will certainly withstand the next 25 years.

Shane did an excellent job in repairing our 2 side gates, which had been sagging and leaning badly. (One of the gates could no longer be opened or closed without extreme force.) Shane adjusted the hinges so that both gates will now open & close easily. He also installed (soddered on) an additional metal latch on the outside of each gate so that they can now be like locked from inside or outside. Work was well done, solved our gate issues and he gave us a fair price.

I chose Brian to do our backyard expansion recently, We needed 100 plus feet of custom metal fence added on a hill side in Las Sendas. I can't remember hiring a contractor that was so prompt, reasonable and did such great work. I had him back to do some more custom work around our pool equipment and that project was done the next day. Great guy with a super partner. Job was done right the first time. He really exceeded what we expected.

I had the opportunity to work with Ironwood Metal Works on a new restaurant concept in Scottsdale. Brian and his team helped us with several custom iron fixtures, which included: booth lamps, wall sconces, chandeliers, linear hanging light fixtures, as well as a hostess stand, and a large custom bar front and foot rail. They met all of our client's requests and expectations in regards to the design, craftsmanship, and deadlines.

I needed to replace about 80% of my pool/yard perimeter metal fence. Rising Steel provided a stronger metal fence correctly anchored in both the soil and on top of a short block wall. The welding was good as was the price. This is a young company suffering from growing pains. Attention to detail (paint) and job site scheduling were erratic. Still, I would contract with them again knowing I would receive a strong product at a very pair price.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How long is welding training?

Because there are different paths to learning to weld, there’s no single timeline for welding training. Some people attend school part-time while working their current job, while others can focus full-time on their welding training courses. People interested in learning how to weld as a hobby can also take classes from professional welders, such as at KCMA & Services in Waterloo, Indiana.

Expect to take at least two years to go from welding newbie to American Welding Society Certified Welder. A junior college Certificate of Completion welding course is two semesters full-time, or 10 units of coursework. With this certificate, students are qualified for an apprenticeship or internship, rather than a full-time entry-level job. Welding apprenticeships range from 6,000 to 8,000 hours long, equalling three to four years at 2,000 hours per year. Some junior colleges, such as Cerritos College in the Los Angeles area, offer more in-depth welding programs that lead to different welding certifications, such as arc welding and tungsten gas arc welding. These take three to four semesters to complete, so you could be qualified for an entry-level job in about two years of full-time study. Alternatively, you can prepare for employment more quickly through an intensive vocational program at a trade school. For instance, Ohio’s Lincoln Electric Company offers a comprehensive program that prepares people for a welding career in just 20 weeks and 600 hours of hands-on instruction.

How many types of welding are there?

Welding is a method of fusing together two or more pieces of metal using electricity or flame. Welding is used to construct buildings, make metal sculptures, build and repair cars, make gates and furniture, and for many other practical and aesthetic uses. There are multiple types of welding. Here is an overview of the most popular methods:

  • Stick welding: Formally known as shielded metal arc welding, stick welding uses extreme heat applied at the seam of two separate metals to melt them together. A third (intermediary) metal may also be incorporated for added strength. As the metals cool, they are bonded together.
  • Metal inert gas (MIG) welding: Formally known as gas metal arc welding, MIG welding uses a tool to feed metal wire into the weld puddle while an electrical arc melts the wire, which will fuse to the base metal upon cooling.
  • Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding: Formally referred to gas tungsten arc welding, TIG welding is a similar process MIG welding, but instead of using a tool that continuously feeds metal wire into the weld puddle, the welder must hold and manually feed the stick.
  • Gas welding: A mix of flammable gas and oxygen is used to heat metal to the melting point.
  • Forge welding: Forging metal is an ancient art that involves heating two pieces of metal until they are molten, then hammering them together.

Where can I take welding classes?

Your options for welding classes depend on where you live and whether you’re willing to travel. Many skilled professionals offer private or group welding classes across the U.S. Some high schools offer classes for teens, but many people learn from a private trainer or in a junior college or vocational school. Students learn basic welding, machining and fabrication processes, including using gas and arc welding equipment, and qualify for an apprenticeship or internship. Other colleges as well as vocational schools have two-year associate’s degree programs that prepare you to take the welding certification exam and seek full-time employment.

How much is welding training?

The cost of welding training depends on where you take your classes and how quickly you want to complete the program. In general, junior college welding classes are the least expensive, but may take longer; trade schools offer intensive classes that lead to certification more quickly, but are more expensive. For example, Cerritos College, a junior college in Los Angeles that offers a welding training course, charges an average of $46 per unit; most of their welding certificate programs require 19 units of coursework, so cost about $875 each to complete. Pro-Weld, an on-site welding school in Idaho, offers three different welding courses. The 36-week welder fabrication and the 24-week gas tungsten arc welding courses each cost an average of $3,300, while pipe welding costs an average of $2,500 for a 24-week session or an average of $4,500 for a 52-week session. The 20-week comprehensive program at the Lincoln Electric Company in Ohio costs an average of $9,500. Many programs require students to purchase approximately $120-$200 worth of personal welding equipment in addition to textbooks or other class material fees.
