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.

I contacted Shawn @ ShineZall, LLC a few months ago after searching online for a local business that could perform stainless steel welding on an exhaust system for my car. The contact method I initially chose was email, which I received a very prompt response from Shawn stating he would be more than happy to help & he provided me a mobile contact # to contact him directly and speak about the project. This was a custom exhaust that was only being held on w/clamps and had leaking issues. Shawn from ShineZall, LLC stated he had over 10+ years or more of experience with welding and fabrication and asked me specific details regarding the number of welds, types of joints for each section, etc.. to get an idea of the time required to complete the job. He then quickly came up with a quote and we agreed on the price and I brought my car to his local location the very next day. We had agreed on meeting @ 6:00 A.M. and when I arrived Shawn was outside waiting for me, eager to start the job. I felt very comfortable as he was very professional and knowledgeable. He told me he would have the job completed in the afternoon and I left my car in his capable hands. Throughout the day I was receiving picture updates and messages from Shawn of his progress, which was great that he took the time to assure me of his progress and the quality of his work. I then received a call early in the afternoon that the job was done, I was thrilled. I went to pickup the car & Shawn showed me in detail what he had done and the car has never sounded better. The weld quality is the highest I have ever seen completed by hand. Not only were the welds uniform in size & height, they were spaced perfectly so much so you would think a machine had done it, but it was all due to the talented staff @ ShineZall, LLC. Shawn then provided me with a professional invoice and receipt, charging me exactly the price we agreed upon & gave me his business card. I would recommend anyone who needs high quality welding, or any stainless steel welding to contact ShineZall, LLC as the service, quality & overall experience was amazing. The welds are still holding strong and will more than likely outlast the life of the car itself.

I found PAG Welding and Fabrication on Houzz. I needed a small railing installed on my new back porch steps. After meeting Frank Pagano, the owner, I hired him on the spot. He has a very pleasant personality and I knew that I'd be in good hands. Frank was honest, returned calls and texts promptly, and worked with me throughout every step of the design and installation process. He even found a great vintage railing for me on Craig's list which he cut, welded and finished to fit my space perfectly. Frank has a creative eye and really enjoys his craft. After the installation was complete, I decided to add additional railings on my stoop and I'm looking forward to working with Frank on phase 2.

He communicates well hence we are able to synchronize our schedules very satisfactorily. He is a competent tractor mechanic and welder, and did a great job with the welding of my tractor bucket and garden trailer. Although we were not yet able to start the tractor because of a bad starter, he promised to return to complete his promise.

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.
