Joe did a small job for me where he welded some planter baskets to the patio fence of our summer patio at Hugh O'Neill's Restaruant & Pub in Malden center. He was punctual, his work was great and so was his price. I would definitely call Joe for future work and highly recommend him. Derrick Sandlin Hugh O'Neill's

OMG, Christine and Dennis were absolutely wonderful! From the first conversation we had (Christine contacted me immediately upon receiving my inquiry) until today, when they finished the installation of our gorgeous, new porch railings, it was pure delight! Their price was great (exactly what she quoted), they were able to fit us into their schedule, and complete the job well within my requested timeframe, and they were a pleasure to do business with. They were polite, prompt, friendly, respectful of us and each other, made us gorgeous railings, and added beauty to our property! I can’t say enough about DCB Welding and Fabrication, Inc. They are truly the kind of people, and business, that you want to put your trust in for a job well done. Dennis is a perfectionist, and a true artist. Christine is the dynamo that makes it all work. Together, they made me a very happy customer. Just being around them tells you that that’s their goal: to make their customers happy, and, in my case, proud to own beautifully made wrought iron railings!! Look no further: DCB is the company you want to hire!!

The weld repair looks fine, but is not exactly what I had expected given my own research into what could be done. However. as I am a novice welder I bowed to the professionals. This work effort should suffice for a number of years. So, from that perspective, I am pleased. Wheel wells were removed of all plastic fastners, but were replaced with text screws which do not cover existing holes. Hardware for the stabilizer links was not installed on one side. From a business view, Roma needs to be more specific on his quotes and ensure he considers all labor and materials. Despite my details on what the initial job entailed, I was quoted an amount and quickly advised this job was not what he had expected, with the price doubling plus omission of the price of materials We negotiated this down for a price to fix two sides instead of one and I added another area for repair. My final bill was itemized and like all other automotive workshops broke out labor for items that had to be removed and reinstalled for the primary job. Which means I WAS HIT FOR LABOR TWICE. For over 40 years I have made it a point to perform my own work, as I have never paid for automotive services where something wasn't missing or work was not performed correctly. This job didn't change that statistic.

Rob restored our beautiful chair’s stainless steel rung when it split. The work was exceptional; the original defect can not be detected and chair rocks smoothly. He was wonderful to work with. He promptly called back, picked up the piece, welded it, and returned it the next day! The price was reasonable. Rob’s professionalism and pleasantness are appreciated. We have now hired him for another job. You will not be disappointed! Christine Marchand Methuen, MA

Ed is honest, hard working, with great communication skills and does a clean professional job whether repairs or complete builds indoor or out. Ed has the ability and know-how to persevere on projects that present unexpected challenges and the stick-to-itiveness to complete projects right and within budget as well as make professional recommendations for design options to enhance the project. I give Ed and his company, E.P. Wiggins Welding & Metal Fabrication Services, the highest rating possible and recommend them for any weld/metal-fab services required.

Nick welded up some 6063 Aluminum parts for me for a hang gliding rack for my truck. I had 3D CAD drawings of what the whole thing would look like and what parts I needed to be welded. I had all the pieces cut and drawings showing dimension lines of where each piece went to make each part. We met initially to go over what I was looking for and what Nick needed from me. He was busy with other work but let me know when he would be available. He was available when he said he would be. I dropped off printed drawings and the pieces. He did the welding in 1 day and I picked up the parts that night. He made himself available nights and weekends for meeting, picking up and dropping off. He gave me a call when he came across an issue that wouldn't work for welding and proposed a reasonable solution. All the parts fit and the welds look strong. The project is not complete yet, I'll have 1 more piece that needs welding and I will have Sundown Welding do the work.

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.
