Jose is awesome, he arrived on time and gave me a thorough estimate, plus a free repair to our lilting railing before he even got approval to start the work. He followed up by phone and text to confirm estimate and timeline. Highly recommend Brothers Welding!

Doug was on time and got the job done quickly and accurately. He was polite and wound up charging me less than his quote. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has a welding need.

Sam showed up on time at my house, with pre-fabricated metal that I had specified. Very friendly and professional, great attitude, and easily performed the trailer welding, and took on some additional projects I had without issue. He cleaned up and used his time efficiently. I will use him again for other projects.

It was a complete pleasure working with Joe. He was easy to contact. He showed up on time. He was professional. He listened well to what I wanted done. He was creative in his approach to performing the work. His welding was absolutely fantastic (not that I am an expert welding critic, but it looks clean and strong). He went above and beyond, even fixed a small crack that was not part of the job I hired him for and cleaned up some rust spots that also weren't part of the job I hired him for. The bottom line, he is the first person I would call if I needed more welding done in the future and I would confidently recommend him to friends

Barry is a great guy and he did an awesome job on the project, welding into place a sculpture that had some loose parts. He took the extra effort to make sure it was exactly how I wanted it. Would call him back again anytime.

Jake did an excellent job of fabricating a metal patch & welding it over a leak in our 900 gallon galvanized water pressure tank. While doing so, he noticed another leak near the top and came back 2 days later with another patch. We were extremely satisfied with his work and would recommend him to anyone.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience hiring Joel. He did a great job fixing all the welds on a coffee table I bought. He was prompt, professional, and the work was done really well. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for furniture/welding repair.

Matt at FMS Metal Works did a fine job from the start of the process of contacting me regarding the potential job to providing me with the proper paperwork for a job quote. The end product/project was more than satisfactory. Compared to the other bids I received from Thumbtack app he was very professional in promptly returning email/phone calls about the potential job. There were some welding vendors that did not return my inquiries about the possible project and one that wanted to start the job on the spot that day of the job quote without any type of job contract or he was not gonna do it at all. Be careful about vendors that do not want to provide you with a job estimate that both parties can agree on. Overall experience with FMS metal works was good. Will definitely do business again for future welding projects.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
