Showed up on time. I let them know in advance that I had heavy furniture, there was one piece they struggled with though. I will say that not one thing was broken!!! And the driver asked in the end if there was anything that he could do for us before he left. Very nice man - Alex. I would recommend them.

Best Experience Ever with a Contractor. I have not written many review in my life so when you work with this company you will know why I did. We are so thankful to make our house look like new. His worker worked late everyday to complete walls and celling in a timely manner. My wife loves the color. We had a minor issue and they fixed everything before leaving. Every step of the way was a pleasure and easy. Thank you, thank you. (Scrap 1,000 sqft of popcorn, float and re texture walls, patch old light boxes and paint.). Sorry on pictures.

Best choice ever! We hired Andre to put in a driveway out to the husband's new "man-cave" metal building. The building sits up 9" and it's location wasn't exactly straight with the existing driveway which caused the placement of this driveway to be creative in order to not look out of place. Andre and his crew framed in the proposed design to give us a visual first. Which was a good thing as I noticed right away one side of the drive didn't flow right it just seemed awkward. Andre listened and gave me the opportunity to take some string to show him the adjustments I thought would make it flow better visually. Andre went with the adjustments made and we couldn't be any happier with the end results, the driveway looks great! So now that the driveways done it's my turn. The husband so pleased with the reasonable cost of the driveway and asked Andre if he could hire him to install a fence. So we're onto the next project with Andre and I'm 100% sure it will be the best. I say this because he's already helping us take back the wood we bought to exchange so it will last more than 2 years; we didn't choose the right type of wood. We so appreciate his honesty. We highly recommend Andre for your project(s).

Quality work, fence is solid metal. Better than the screw together kind. We did have some communication issues on a smaller part of the project to fix a pre-existing driveway gate. Chad was willing to work to find an agreeable solution that we both were ok with considering the circumstances.

Excellent! They get a lot of stuff on a trailer and in a pickup bed. Amazing. Nice people, hard workers. I will definitely hire them again and would highly recommend to anyone with assorted junk and waste to get rid of. Heavy metal items like appliances they haul away for free - something the others don't tell you about.

Steve was GREAT! Would call him again & recommend to friends and family. He showed up when expected and with all tools & supplies needed. He took the time to complete this job perfectly. Our project was a wrought iron metal fence across the back yard. We wanted one smaller end section turned into a gate allowing us outside access. He cut, welded, sanded & painted the prefect gate! Looks like it was always there! When I first posted this project, I immediately got 2 quotes. Steve was $300 below the other quote! Super nice guy...highly recommend! Job date 9/21/16

Dwayne installed a puppy guard on our wrought iron fence to stop our dogs from escaping. He did a fantastic job and even did a custom puppy guard for the same price as originally quoted after he realized that the pre-made guard would not work as well. Dwayne was prompt to respond, showed up when he said he would, and was very knowledgable about welding and the available solutions to fix our issue. Overall a great experience! Highly recommended.

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 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.
