I was looking to compare the price of a metal building to conventional construction. I was very up front with Robert about what I was looking for. He took the time to give me some estimates and talk with me on the project. The metal building is a better choice for our needs and Robert agreed. That kind of honesty and integrity will have me calling him again when I need a construction project. He did not try and sell me something for the sake of a job! I look forward to working with him in the future!

While the job is not quite done, I am very leased with the progress they have made. The workers that Oscar brought or sent out to work were wonderful. The photos I am submitting today are of some massive 20 - 30' tall ugly concrete block pillars that permits wanted to hold up deck roof. One of his masons is an 80+ year old gentleman who turned ugly into art!

To Whom it May Concern, Since 1994 I have had 2 occasions where I was able to employ and work with Jeremy. Both periods of employment were handled very nicely by Jeremy, in 1994 the work involved consisted mainly of dismantling and repacking 4ft. and 8ft. fluorescent light fixtures installed in 12ft. ceilings. Other aspects of the job consisted of some fork-lift work along with using a cutting torch used to cut steel beams. Another period during 2007 and 2008 Jeremy was hired to supervise a crew of 6 - 8 workmen renovating a 10,000 sq. ft. Building. Primarily the job consisted of removing the old wooden beams and replacing with newer steel structural material, also being responsible for insulating the new roof and installing galvanized roof decking. I have definitely experienced a pleasant working situation with Jeremy and would not mind employing Jeremy again.

Ron built an iron railing for our pool steps, which took a couple weeks, given that we (Ron and I) had to figure out exactly how to do it. I really wish Thumbtack had the option to post pictures, because the finished product really fits in well with the tiled steps as well as the pool. And it's very strong and sturdy, my Number One concern from the outset. The quality of work is quite good. Ron is very conscientious and concerned about getting the thing right; he came back twice to double-check measurements and layout, and I appreciate that kind of thoroughness. I also appreciated his willingness to accommodate our budget limitations. He was more than generous with his time. I would definitely call Ron for future iron work, with no reservations whatsoever. He is very willing to make adjustments and do whatever is necessary to make the product work. A really good guy. :}

This was my first experience using Thumbtack, as well as with Noah Goodwillie / Official Fabrication. Thumbtack is easy to use and Noah is great to work with. Noah promptly answered my request for a quote on a small metal bending project. He was very responsive and answered all my questions in a timely manner. Once we agreed on price, Noah had the part produced for me in a timely manner. The quality was good. I would use Noah's services again.

Robert did an amazing job fabricating and building us a corrugated metal fence of our own design that was almost 400 feet long. He took a little longer than other fence companies in town but saved us a lot of money. He is very polite, friendly, and has a great work ethic. I would recommend him to anyone considering any type of welding work and especially fencing.

Dan developed and executed the plan to replace our rotted exterior stairs and storage roof. The project took a week, and he showed up on time each day and provided a project status each evening. The workmanship was good and completed on time and on budget. He is apleasure to work with as well

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.
