Greg was really easy to work with. He met me on site to measure things out, listen to my needs and thoughts and to give me suggestions. I like him right away and contracted for the railing during our first meeting. He came to install the railing today and did a great job! I am VERY pleased and will not hesitate to use North Shore Welding for ALL of my welding needs!

Contacted James on a Saturday evening received an immediate call back with a promise to do requested work the following day. Both James and Justin arrived on time, were very polite and professional. Could not have been happier with the work that they did. They were hired to power wash a difficult to reach area on side of house as well as outside of aluminum gutters.

Had Damon build a custom pannier mount for my Motorcycle. He used stainless steel for the frame and did an awesome job fitting it specifically for my motorcycle. I would definitely recommend his work again.

I have known Ed Wiggins for many years and have utilized his quality welding & metal fabrication services on commercial as well as residential projects. 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.

Mike was very professional and knowledgeable about this project. He fabricated a radar hinge for my boat and fixed some rails as well. His work was flawless, his ideas were spot on and the price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend Mikes work to anyone

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.

Sean did a super professional job in saving via welding some worn out area on a stainless ice chest that is a regularly used piece of equipment in our bartending business. I was more than likely a very small job for this highly accomplished welder, but it was important to us. Sean was easy to communicate with and got the job done quickly and perfectly added years back onto our equipment. Thanks Sean!

Jim did a great job. Ed cut a steel girder to fit a new steel header and then welded two clips the support the existing girder. Jim did a number of additional things as well for me. He had all the equipment required and was versed in safety and organizing the work. I would use Jim again for his services.

I am very encouraged after a phone call from Joe that he can provide the kind of service I was looking for. I am not a welder but am looking for instruction, and Joe has already introduced me to some "lay of the land" concepts so that I am confident to study further with him.

    I have been a welder/mechanic for sixteen years and will do jobs as cheap as possible by pulling parts for customers from the junk yard. My main goal is to save you as much money and down time as I can. Most garages will tell you that you need more than you really need or tell you that you need other work done on your car that does not need fixing. I will guarantee all work done on your cars or trucks. Hope to see and work with you soon. mike

      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.
