I brought Cedric a broken wall-mounted reading lamp, thinking it might be fixed by welding. He identified the metal as an alloy that was not weldable, but offered to trying soldering instead. He struck me as highly experienced in all fix-it matters, with a cluttered workshop and every tool imaginable. If he could not repair this lamp, no one could! He went to some trouble to find the right soldering mixture but a few days later I went to pick up the lamp and it was nicely and neatly repaired. Great, friendly service, and very affordable. Highly recommended.

We had a new patio and stairs put in our house in Fairfield. Needed metal railings, found Stefano on Thumbtack. What a good experience, excellent work and very professional. He also put in a new set of metal railings at my parents house. Would highly recommend to anyone.

I was extremely impressed with Roman and his company. Long-term stressful circumstances and everything needing to be timed to the minute left me with a small margin for error on my part, the movers, the scrap metal guy, Salvation Army, etc. Roman and Joseph showed up exactly at 11 as promised. Roman immediately took calm control of everything by suggesting a walk through. Then he said "Let's get started!" And he and Joseph briskly and efficiently emptied my house and packed the truck. Several times I had questions. Each time Roman smiled, answered and communicated in manner and words "Everything's under control. No problem." Even Joseph looked at me kindly and said "Don't worry. We'll take care of everything." I have no car so I rode to my new place with them. By the time we got there, I was so relaxed, I was laughing. And just as efficiently, they unloaded the truck up some very steep stairs, keeping their smiles the entire time. I bought them lunch: I was very grateful not only for their efficiency and capability, but for the de-stressing factor they added to my life simply by being my movers. Historically I move frequently, and so I definitely count Roman and his people as my MFL (Movers For Life). Added note is that he was the GM for Two Men and a Truck for 10 years prior to starting his own business 4 years ago with his own capital, growing a bit at a time. I’ve worked with people my entire life; what I do depends on my ability to accurately asses a person, who they are, and what they’re about. I heard Roman handle several client calls for upcoming moves very professionally with the same assurance that left me knowing I was hiring the right guys. Roman is conscientious, sharp, and focused on building a strong and ethical business dedicated to helping people have peace of mind during their move. I’m definitely using him again – if he agrees to, knowing he’ll have to deal with those stairs again when I move out!

I first hired Tom during a renovation back in 2006 to upgrade the ductwork in our 100 year old house. We ended up having him install a new gas furnace and AC system on top of it. Fantastic work - my review is also on his shop's website. We were so impressed and happy with Tom's work that when we bought a new house that needed work on the HVAC system - Tom was the ONLY contractor I called. He has since completely replaced the ductwork in our new house, replaced the AC, and did an oil-to-gas boiler conversion. We also have Tom coming back to add heat to our basement and garage workshop when it's finished. I have referred Tom to friends and coworkers, who have also chosen him to do their work. I could go on and on, but the most convincing part of my review is this - you don't do this much repeat business with a contractor unless you really like their work and the way they treat you and your house. I gave Tom the keys to the house for the duration of the project, and trusted him to come/go any time. Look at the pictures of his work, they practically speak for themselves. Without question, Tom is my HVAC guy for as long as he's in the business, without question.

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.
