How do I find a good welder in San Francisco?

Thumbtack Editors

First, take your search online. This way, you can compare San Francisco's top-rated welders quickly and thoroughly. Searching online allows you to compare welders’ ratings, reviews and Top Pro statuses. Some customers also upload photos of actual work done by the welders in your area, and these photos can help you assess their skill level.

Also, take some time to look into the welders’ credentials. For example, you can ask if the pros have a C-60 license for welding contractors in California and/or certification from the American Welding Society. They might also have training and certifications from other accredited programs. Don’t hesitate to ask the welders to share their credentials if you can’t find this information on their online profiles. 

Finally, make sure you get cost estimates for your project from several different welders in San Francisco. Requesting price quotes is key to making sure you hire the best pro for the best (not necessarily the “cheapest”) price.
