James was fantastic. I wanted a wrought iron gate to match the design on existing to secure the deck from the stairs that lead down to the back yard. He paid attention to my instructions/requests and the project turned out very nice.

Ron did a wonderful job!!! I had a wooden porch in the backyard that was falling apart. Ron replaced it with a composite decking and metal railing. He made an effort to lower the cost of the project. The new porch looks amazing! I strongly recommend him!

We needed new railings inside and out. Charles had the best price on material and did an amazing job on the outside rails. The interior rails are beautiful. The WeldFX design team outdid themselves!

Luke installed a new handrail with pickets on our front stairway and was able to match the existing partial railing perfectly so we didn't have to start from scratch. He did excellent work and was very prompt. He was honest about what would work best and his price was very reasonable. Highly recommend.

Erik fixed an iron gate, installed 30 years ago, that went from a tennis court to a pool area. He added a self closing spring and latch that was required by city code. The repair was not simple due to the age and style of the gate, yet Erik crafted & executed a brilliant solution. Erik accommodated the urgency I had to get the job done. He has a positive attitude and he worked with great precision and skill.

We were doing a complete remodel on our rental building in Long Beach. The stairs were old and damaged, as well as the railings and courtyard concrete. The courtyard area also puddled when it rained, which further added complications. The railings no longer met code. Andreson demolished the old stairs and completely rebuilt the staircases and added the LifeDeck waterproofing system. There were several steps and layers in the process, adding safety and functionality. The end result was a strong new staircase (3 flights), which was done by code and passed all inspections. All waterproofed and secure, with a great looking finish coat. Also, the water drains effectively from the top stairs to the bottom, and the new courtyard concrete Andreson poured is all pitched so that we no longer have issues with puddling. The new railings are sturdy and meet code. The entire job looks and functions great, as an important part of the entrance aesthetic appeal safety of our rental property. Overall, Jeff Andreson did a very quality job and we would hire him again for future work of this nature.

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.
