Jeff of AC welding was very professional. After several emails and one call a onsite visit was scheduled. Upon assessing the needed repair a repair was scheduled for the next day. Initial appointment was for 10:00-10:30. Prior to this time Jeff called and indicated that he was running a bit late and would arrive between 11:99-11:30. Jeff arrived at approx 11:00. Job was completed in a rapid manor. I have some experience in welding and can recognize a good weld when I see one. As a result of this repair I am planning on having AC Custom install a stair railing for the front steps.

Luca is a gem of a human and I’m so grateful I found him. I had a very obscure idea to build bookshelves for my nursery into a non working fireplace in my apartment. He was very responsive, patient with me while I tried to describe what I wanted, and built exactly what I wanted in about a week — sending me photos of various wood color options and style of brackets to make sure it was exactly right. He even made them so they pop in and out easily in case I want to paint or need to take them out because I’m renting. The price he gave me was an amazing deal. Since then, he has fixed a latch on a vintage hutch (found the matching vintage latch online himself, purchased and installed in a few minutes) and also came by last minute to fix a leg on another vintage piece that I thought for sure would require a completely new piece. He of course was able to completely repair it in about ten minutes with a replica bolt he had and saved me so much heartache. He’s delightful to be around, kind, punctual and incredibly talented. I will continue to hire him for basically anything I need done in the future. Highly recommend!

Will was an absolute pleasure to work with. He quickly replaced my broken doorbell and also gave feedback on other projects I have for the future. His skill set is vast (welding, electrical, general construction) and he offers great feedback!

I found PAG Welding and Fabrication on Houzz. I needed a small railing installed on my new back porch steps. After meeting Frank Pagano, the owner, I hired him on the spot. He has a very pleasant personality and I knew that I'd be in good hands. Frank was honest, returned calls and texts promptly, and worked with me throughout every step of the design and installation process. He even found a great vintage railing for me on Craig's list which he cut, welded and finished to fit my space perfectly. Frank has a creative eye and really enjoys his craft. After the installation was complete, I decided to add additional railings on my stoop and I'm looking forward to working with Frank on phase 2.

Tyrone not only picked up and dropped off my stool but did a phenomenal job fixing it. It's now much more solid than the other ones that broke in the first place.

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.
