Alfred is a creative problem solver. He communicates well, he is easy to work with, he has a wonderful "can do" attitude, and his work is excellent. He combined creativity and welding skills to solve a difficult door fitting problem (inside a heavy steel frame) that was holding up a remodel. The work was visually pleasing, and the city inspector was happy! I immediately asked Alfred to help with another project, and I was very pleased again. Alfred is my new go-to guy for all future welding or piping projects.

Well first of all he was on time!! I needed to change a metal door our of my garage, the door was rotted out and was falling a part. So he had to replace the door and the door jam. He did it really fast and was really professional about everything. And the best thing was that he gave me a really good price!! 👍

Charles is fantastic!! There are a bunch of welders and fabricators on Thumbtack, and I've talked with and used a few of them. Charles is BY FAR the best! If you have any welding or fabricating needs, call him first. He's the only call you'll have to make. Fantastic communication, fantastic work quality, fantastic response time. I am very relieved to have found my go-to welder, finally!

Moe designed & fabricated a frame for a custom drag mini bike project. I was very impressed with professionalism and he is a true craftsman with metal. Moe has done a few other jobs for me also. I would recommend Moe in a heartbeat.

The job involved fabricating and installing a metal piece above the hood vent over our stove. Dave was always responsive to my inquiries and questions and offered well thought out options. The price was fare, the quality of work was outstanding and Dave and his staff were a joy to work with. It is not always easy to find good people to work with, but when you do, it is a very pleasant experience. I will readily recommend Dave to all my friends and family.

Sean was great to work with; I recently hired him to do some custom metal work for 2 of my fireplaces. The pieces came out great and Sean had great follow-up to make sure everything worked out great. He even took one of the pieces back to his shop to shave off ¼ inch so it would fit better. Pics to follow.

I needed a custom roll cage built for my offroad vehicle so I contacted ProWeld One and am very impressed with owner Brandon's welding and fabrication skills. My project turned out even better than expected. There are not many fabricators who care about their work like Brandon does. I would definitely recommend ProWeld One for anyone wanting quality work done

Excellent work and craftsmanship. James was able to create an amazing collapsible/portable fire-pit for me. This will be a great treat to use for beach parties or on car camping trips. James was very thorough and informative during the whole process. He was able to provide a realistic time table for the project and meet it. James was also right on budget. Great work. I intend to post a picture from my next trip. I will definitely use Ferguson Welding for future fabrication projects.

Marc is fantastic - he made a metal base for a chair that I bought second hand. He did great work, finished early and stayed within our agreed upon budget. He even had to basically design the base himself, only going off of a couple picture, and it looks great! Such a pleasure to work with him - I highly recommend him for any of your metal fabrication needs.

Dave helped me with an old Gate that I had at my house. The gate was rusted and no longer closed. I met him through a friend he let me know he was a welder, and that he could fix it . He ended up cutting a peice off and welding a whole new door. Now it works perfect. Thanks Dave.

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.
