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.

Michael from D&M construction did a great job for us. The quality of the work was wonderful. The price was reasonable . He did not require any upfront money. I was impressed with his honesty. The final price was lower than the original estimate because he did not use all the material that he thought he would need. I will use him again if I need any metal work. I enthusiastically recommend D & M construction for any iron work!!!

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.

Mike with HomeRun Fencing and his staff did an Excellent Job. Mike was quick to respond to my request for an estimate, came out the next day, gave a very reasonable price, started the job on time and finished a day early. He used 10' metal poles and sunk them an extra two feet in concrete. The cross beams on the fence were stronger than the usual ones used by everyone else. He also repaired my deck with first rate workmanship. I recommend Mike and HomeRun Fencing without any reservation, they are 5 star in everyway.

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

This is the second remodeling project Tony and his team have done for us. We have had excellent results both times! Last Spring, we had our master bathroom shower modernized with stone and a frameless glass enclosure. The shower looks great and we feel like we are in a high-end hotel. This time, we had the family room carpet replaced with hand-scrapped hardwoods. This area is the central point of the house and gets lots of traffic. The look is incredible! We have gotten so many compliments on the floors and the trim board carpentry. We were expecting a lot of dust in the process, but, Tony's team did a great job keeping it to a minimum level. We highly recommend Tony and his team at Roofing & Remodeling of Dallas. Michael & RuthAnn, Allen, TX

I am the General Manager of a Self Storage facility in Allen TX. Mine is a 'mature' business and thus the property requires occasional tweaking as in repairs or larger than usual up-keep projects. I am fortunate to have enlisted Richard Maytan of SpecTech to aid me in meeting some of these demands at least 3 years ago, and since then SpecTech has been my 'go-to' solution every time work is necessary and I have never had reason to regret Richard's efforts. I have been at times, both amazed at, and thankful for, the broad scope of his knowledge and abilities. Over time, I have had reason to become aware of his skills in carpentry & finish work, welding, metal framing, roofing, masonry & electrical matters just to name a few, as well as extensive abilities in all facets of treework & landscaping to include tree removal or stockade type fencing etc. His knowledge of 'plumbing' also 'saved the day' at my home when a SERIOUS plumbing emergency developed that probably would have been beyond the abilities of some of today's plumbers who only want to install new faucets and clean drain traps. In summary, probably the best way to say I recommend SpecTech / Mr. Maytan is to point out that I have his contact number on my speed dial for both my business and my home.

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 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 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.

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.
