Aug 2018-- I wanted about a 40" tall fence with arch-top gate built across my front porch, to prevent my 3 dogs from escaping every time the front door was opened. James replied promptly, and emailed me very nice, computer drawings. He came out shortly thereafter and we agreed on a price and the task. Within just a couple of days he was here ready to work. The project only took him about 2+ days. He communicated very very well, showed up on time, had a great attitude, and was easy to have working at our home. We really LOVE the job James did. It turned out very pretty, matches our other ironwork, and functions perfectly. It really upgrades our front entry. And I no longer have to chase my dogs all over the neighborhood!! Excellent job! Oh--the silver is the metal before it was painted. And please ignore the other random stuff lying around. We are in the middle of several other projects. :))

Guillermo and Hector were professional from start to finish. They showed up on short notice and on time. They communicated via phone and text message, depending on the situation. These gentlemen did exactly what they said they were going to do, when they said they were going to do it. They even called to notify me of a need to change the initial work order to comply with city and county codes. I would use this company again and recommend them to anyone. Full marks all around.

I had Mike build a metal stairway to a mezzanine inside my garage and he did an outstanding job in all aspects. His bid was very reasonable (the lowest cost by far of the three bids I solicited), his work ethic and focus were admirable, he was very punctual and polite, and he worked 8-10 hour days uncomplainingly until the project was finished to my satisfaction. I highly recommend him for your welding project and I would definitely hire him again in a heartbeat. M. Waterman

Metalworks did an excellent job on the railing they installed for me. They were even able to start the job sooner than anticipated. The rail is beautiful & sturdy. They came in did the job and cleaned up afterwards. I watched as they precisely measured every step of the way. If I ever need railing work again, or any metal work, they will be the first ones I call.

I was very pleased with the final result from Custom Metal and Wrought iron. I emailed Bret photos, measurements and reference for the utility cage I needed and in a very short turn-around, he delivered a perfect product that fit exactly. Very sturdy, well made and built to last! I will recommend his work and definitely keep his company in mind for future projects.

Brandon was very flexible with the scheduling he stayed later than he normally would for me to accommodate my work schedule, the pricing was very reasonable and his welding is spot on. This guy is a pro, the metal where my hood latch usually is got stripped which caused my hood latch to come off so he managed to make it all stable by providing a new area with new metal and welded the new latch back on all in a timely manner as well. 5 star job and he's very nice. I give my strong endorsement to anyone who needs a professional job done. Thank you Brandon!

Mike fixed my metal double door driveway gate. The person that installed it botched the job and Mike came out and installed new hinges and realigned everything and got it working correctly. He was professional and charged a fair price. I highly repairs recommend him for any welding repairs.

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 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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
