One of my main concerns was this massive bed frame that I have, which is solid wood. I wasn’t sure I’d actually be able to get it into my bedroom without having to unscrew the whole thing apart, but thanks to my movers’ knowledge we were able to get it in there. My movers arrived a bit late, but I work in transportation so I understand things have been a mess since Hurricane Irma. The work was finished quickly once they arrived, and when we had to take a break to wait for the rain to subside some, I wasn’t charged for that downtime, I really appreciated that.

This was a "please haul away my junk" job. The guys came all the way from Clearwater to Lakeland for the job, and they gave me a more than fair price. They were thorough and fast. They loaded up a lot of concrete and cinder blocks as well as some metal and other junk that I was going to throw away --- all in just under an hour. James was also very communicative on the phone, so I knew exactly when to expect him. All in all a good experience and I definitely recommend Aloha

I needed a wood fence in my house for privacy and to keep my pets in my property. HR Construction LLC was the first company to send me a quote and arrange a visit to see the job. I received lower quotes from other professionals but I wanted the job to be done right and they gave me confidence they were the right ones for that when they came to my house. The business is run by Father and son(family business) they were very professional and they really did an awesome job. I could not be any happier with my fence. Thanks Hector!

    Paradise Powder Coating is an easy company to work with, good turn around time, and a good product. I have found very few other companies that advertise the ability to do this kind of work and none that have been able to provide me with any samples. The ability to print photos in powder coat resins makes a lasting image on a durable substrate...an absolute necessity in my field of interpretive exhibit design, both interior and exterior.

      Full Metal Shovel installed my swimming pool in july 2011. I cannot express how pleased I am with the installation. The owner Tom and one of his workers did really good, top quality work. The pool is perfect, impeccably level with a perfectly smooth liner. The kids are really starting to look forward to getting back in it this year! Have not had any issues with the pool whatsoever, and it's very easy to maintain. I highly recommend Tom and Full Metal Shovel, if you need someone to come out and install your pool give him them a call, they are the best!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How does a welder work?

      A welder is person who works (typically) with metal. Welding can be done with a wide variety of metals including aluminum, wrought iron, stainless steel, carbon steel and galvanized steel. A welder uses extreme heat to meld together metal pieces to repair or create metal structures. Welding is used for automotive, structural, plate, decorative, pipe, restoration and other metalwork projects. Some items that are made by welding are custom fences, metal gates, interior decorative metalwork, and safety features such as window bars or safety gates for children or pets. The average national cost for welding services ranges from $100 to $150, although pricing can be higher depending on project scale and whether the cost of the metal is included. Hourly rates for welding services can range from $65 to $125. Welders may have a minimum service fee, especially if they are performing the work at your location. Welding can be dangerous work without the proper safety equipment, so welders work with protective masks and body coverings to prevent damage to their vision or skin. Some examples of welding repairs could be $25-$30 for tacking together small items (such as patio chairs), or $35-$100 for larger repairs on metal furniture. Bigger projects, such as a baby gate to seal off the top of a staircase, could cost $550-$750. This price would include one full day of metal cutting, one full day of welding and construction, one to one and a half full days of grinding and painting, and a few hours of installation.

      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.
