I had a canopy bed that was made of iron and a stair way that had corners. Desmon, told me he could come out and put my bed together the next day. I had other bids for the same job and they all wanted pictures. However, he was willing AND able to do the job quickly, carefully, politely and without any questions or marks on my walls. I was pleasantly pleased with his work and his positive and helpful attitude. The work work was outstanding and I would recommend Desmon to my friends and everyone.

Mike and Anthony worked very hard to adhere to the quoted time & price. They were professional & cordial. Sadly though, I'm missing 2 office chairs that never made it to the new place and were not at the old place either. I went to tie up loose ends and the only chair there was a metal folding chair. I will be going back to hand in my keys tomorrow and I'll inquire at the leasing office/maintenance as to their possible involvement in this event. I truly hope I can come back and give a favorable review, I enjoyed talking to Lavell about the name of the company being biblical based.

I had a 10 x 14 heavy duty shed that they tore down in good time and cleaned up the mess and hauled it away. They also hauled away a large metal locker for me. Dan, the owner was very nice and professional. His co-worker was very nice, also. I would hire him again for any more junk removal.

Called on James to try and help unclog a toilet he tried several different things and came back when the ceiling started to leak. He was honest when it got beyond his control. Ended up having to call someone with a camera and metal cutter. Would call again if it was small job.

These guys are great. Very straight forward on pricing. Showed up when they said and got the work done perfectly. Did a few other side jobs for me, including building a barn door, that turned out well and when I was looking for the scrap lumber I found they had stacked it all neatly in an outbuilding. Would hire them again for any job.

Kevin created an aged zinc hood for my new kitchen that needed some old world character. I explained what I wanted and he created it. Exceeds my expectation! He is a master at his craft!

Originally, I was only looking to have a metal banister in my home replaced. Then I got to thinking, I have this contractor here, now is the time to start asking questions. Shawn was informative and helpful. I decided to have a laminate floor installed in my living room. He has a very nice team of guys working for him. They came in and put the floor down in no time at all. It looks amazing. Then on to my original intention, to replace that banister. Along the way, James had to make his own modifications and it turned out beautifully. I am very happy. I look forward to working with Shawn and his team again.

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.
