The Shardz team was very professional during the entire interaction and reasonably priced. I called them and provided pictures of the debris I needed removed, they provided a quote and set an appointment to come on-site. Once they arrived on-site they were able to quickly remove everything I had planned on, including a few items I had thought might be too heavy. We regularly have metal scraps and other debris left over from our metal and wood-working products and I will be using Shardz as our removal service going forward!

We were very pleased with the job that Brian did for us. We have a 2 story he with a metal roof. Brian cleaned all our gutters and cleaned up afterwards. Great company and we will certainly use them again.

I hired Cy to fix a leaky pipe and busted outdoor faucet, as well as to figure out why the filtered water through my refrigerator started to taste like metal. Cy was able to determine what caused all of these issues and did whatever it took to fix it all. He was great and highly recommend!!

Hired Dave to replace existing kitchen light and add pendants and under cabinet lighting. He did a fine job and was a very nice man. The only part of the process that I wish was different was the amount of time it took. But that's not really Dave's fault. He had to spend time figuring out how our existing wiring was done and then deal with the outcome. So what we expected to be fairly straightforward turned out not to be. Nonetheless, the lights are installed and working perfectly and I LOVE them! He showed up as expected and let you know if he was running late.

I posted that I needed an old freezer removed from my house and Melissa from O'Scrap Recyclers said they would pick it up for free the next day! I came home from work and it was gone! Thank you, Melissa! ScrapMasters had been promising to pick it up for 12 days, it took O'Scrap Recyclers LESS than 24 hours to follow through with their promise. Great company!

I can't say enough good things about the job that Rick did for me. I have an antique umbrella stand that I use for my collection of canes. The metal bottom was in bad shape and kept falling out. I was hoping that Rick could weld it together, but he came up with an even better solution. He made a metal support that goes under the bottom, is completely hidden, and provides great support for the canes. He made the support in a couple of days and mailed it to me before he even asked to be paid. He then charged me a very small amount. See pictures.

This information is for anyone who needs help from a man that care’s about his work. Andy, with Scrap Masters does exactly what he says he will do and also goes the extra mile to please his customers! I found Andy one day glancing through the free Money Saver mag that comes in all of our mail boxes. The add read “ Remove scrap metal FREE”, old stoves, washers, ice box, etc… the list goes on and on” Well for 2 years I had a old ice box and A/C sitting in my back yard that every one else said 50.00 each to haul off. So I sent Andy a email and said “ FREE” and named off what I had. He said yep! He came out to see what I had and “BOY” I had a lot of stuff that needed to be hauled off, and he took every bit of it, and cleaned up behind himself!! I even had steel pipes in the ground and he cut them below the dirt and removed them!! I’ve been wanting to have them removed for a long time. Do I recommend this Guy?? YOU BET I DO!! He is a man of his word. You got a eye sore somewhere in your yard, house…………. Call Andy!! Thanks Andy, I’ll be calling again real soon, Marty and Carol Killough Indian Trail NC ckillough@windstream.net

Good job on the 500-LP rack he custom built for me with wood. I drew up the design and he embellished it with some good ideas and implemented it. The wood staining job was ok, but the build quality was good. Thanks Dan.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
