I had a job that needed to be completed before Christmas and am so very happy that Barry was the first person to respond. I had a heavy and big reclaimed beam that I wanted to "float" above my fireplace. It was a little bit of a complex engineering feat and thankfully Barry had come up with a perfect design to hold the weight of the beam and get the look that I was after. He customized the metal brace and was able to seamlessly recess the beam into the wall so that it looks like it's always been there. He, and his assistant, were able to come out the next day and complete the job in under 2 hours. They were awesome!! I will definitely work with them again.

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.

I contacted Saber sheetmetal at about 4pm. Said my project needed to be done soon as we were having an appraisel on the house. Was told I could pick up at 10am next morning. Arrived at shop at 10:05. Picked up my door panels done and perfect. They even gave me a handful of sheet metal screws to finish my door. Thanks, Saber Sheetmetal!!! Job well done!! Apraisel went well!!!

We had a bar top in our living area for which we wanted a different look and decided on rusted steel. It is an "L" shaped bar, 10' on the long end, 5' on the short, 2' across. Jim cut the rolled steel with his plasma cutter, then acid washed it and gave it a few days to rust. After installation it was coated with polyurethane for a low luster finish. It is gorgeous and our guests can't figure out what it is until we tell them. Thanks, Jim, for helping us flesh out the design and for a beautiful execution of the project.

All American welding is Fantastic, They made a custom sidecar frame for my motorcycle, it came out far better then I could have imagined. If you need metal fabrication or welding done, you couldn't find better people. whatever your need give them a call first and you won't be disappointed. They'll give you a fair deal. I really can't say enough about how satisfied I am with their work! Call them now, now, now! No matter where in California you are you won't find a better welder. I live in Sacramento so they are an hour and a half away. A trip well worth the time! don't hesitate to call them for your welding and metal fabrication needs, from what I've seen they do it all! a happy and satisfied customer!

    First and Foremost we care deeply about our welds. Welds can be the most critical aspect of any metal project. If its a structural, the welds it must adhere to strict codes and rules to prevent failure, and if its ornamental our welds must hold the pieces for years but not take away from its overall design.

    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.
