WELDERS 1st CHOICE and TERRY will be my first choice for any welding work I or my friends may need. I had two custom gates made by Artistic Iron Works that took over 3 months to make and 3 visits to my home and after 3 different measurements a letter to the BBB. Visit by the Nevada State Board of Contractor’s Investigator Gary Copenhaver who said this work was acceptable, look at the pictures, what do you think I’m filing a complaint on them. I’m going to court now against Artistic Iron Works. I am now happy with my gates thanks to Terry and his company WELDERS 1st CHOICE. TERRY IS A HONEST MAN OF INTEGRITY AND TAKES PRIDE IN HIS WORK, AND CRAFTSMANSHIP. In 5 hours on site Terry refrabricated my gates in the blistering heat . Terry and his crew of two, cut down 6 inserts for holding glass cleaned up the welds and repainted. Cut new striker holes for deadbolts so I could remove the ugly plate that covered poorly drilled holes. Cut down post on west gate so height matched the wall and welded caps back on. East gate removed fence panel, and post. Removed all iron from house and wall. Repaired hole in stucco and block wall. Removed black silicone from wall cement. Repainted stucco and wall to match house and wall. Cut off 4 hole plates from wall section of fence. Installed appropriate 2 hole plates. Cleaned up welds and repainted and reinstalled level to wall. Cut off hinge side post from fence section, and moved it forward 5 inches. Cut plate and rewelded post level, and resecured plate in new location. Cut off one hole plate, 1” sleeve and 1 1/4 extension, between hinge post and fence. Installed more appropriate 1 1/2 material between hinge post and gate. Welded in screw hole and cleaned up affected area from old post location. Removed screws, silicone, and spacers from old post location. Removed screws and spacers from old location of posts and replaced with more appropriate 1 1/2 piece of material between hinge post and bottom of fence to match bottom rail of fence to strengthen post. Also, for a cleaner look , rehung gate. Cut down striker post , and welded to plate at proper height to match the decorative design of the gate, and concrete. Cut off tab at the bottom of striker post, as it was unnecessary, and added another plate to the top so the post was level. Moved post forward approximately 5” to match gate. Resecured plate flat to the ground. Resecured top tab with screw. Cut new striker hole for lock. Terry also repainted all areas he worked on including my brick stucco wall. He did not use any silicone to fill in bad craftsmanship. He used welds and good measurements and if corrections were needed he did the work over again. I wish I would have found WELDERS 1st CHOICE first would have same me time and frustration. You know when you find a good guy when other Welders know his work and recommend him. THANKS TERRY FOR FIXING MY HORRIBLE CUSTOM GATES. TERRY AND HIS CREW MADE IT RIGHT.

Couldn't be happier with the work Dave did for us. Gates look beautiful and was just what we wanted. Dave is very professional and takes pride inthe work he does. Highly recommend Dave for anyone that is looking for metal work, fabrication or welding. Price was well below other bid I received and Dave powder coated the gates, not painted.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
