Bought a new metal bed frame that was great but a bit too high. Not your normal handyman project. Chris from VNC got in touch with me and after I described the project he assured me that he would complete the job and make sure the cuts would be precise and smooth. Met Chris and he used a precise cutting tool and delivered on his promise. New metal bed frame is now the perfect height and looks great! Thanks Chris!

We hired Jon to replace our wooden 9 year old crumbling fence that had partially blown down from a storm. We got lots of quotes from big fencing companies and no one could come close to the price that Jon offered us. Jon's quote was about $10 cheaper per linear foot than the other companies could offer! Jon and his crew did a beautiful job on the fence. They even had to deal with connecting the fence to a large tree and they did it seamlessly. I am so happy that we had Jon and his crew come out to do our fence. They were able to finish the project in just three days and I hardly knew they were even there. The best part is, that rather than just take the old wood to the dump, they offered it to a few couples who needed the wood repair their fences/make crafts which is super environmentally friendly! I will definitely hire them in the future to do other projects around our house.

Cameron and his team were great. They provided me a VERY reasonable rate for hauling off a lot of "stuff" from our property. The stuff included 3 huge piles of pyracantha, sage and oak tree cuttings, an old metal storage tank and an assortment of wood timbers. In all, about 4700 lbs of "stuff". They were prompt on arriving and quick to get the work done. Will definitely call them again as we still have a lot of "stuff" to have hauled away.

David & crew were hired to build a metal RV cover on our property. They showed up as scheduled, completed the job in a timely manner, promptly answered all phone calls & texts, went beyond the original specs to ensure the structure was sound & met with our satisfaction for no extra charge, cleaned the site thoroughly after completion & charged a very reasonable fee. Overall, very pleased with his work & professionalism and are already talking to him about future projects.

Laguna put in a 250’ steel pole / wire ranch fence for a new house, I'm building. Richardo and Noe are really hard workers. Kept coming back and stayed with it until done. Took my suggestions to task and kept me informed during the process. Cleaned up well after the job. Price was average or a little above when cross quoted.

I asked them to rebuild my old smoker that had rusted out. They welded in a new bottom for both the fire box and the smoker box. When finished it was actually better than original since a thicker metal was used

I had a fairly complicated project with some very heavy metal beams as support for a cantilevered deck over a cliff. Johnny and crew worked with me to figure out the safest and best way to get this job done and they got it done. They demonstrated a professional manner and were very easy to work with. Great business communication skills as well, which is very important to me. I will be using them on the next phase of this project which is custom stair railing and the railing for this deck. K A

    We asked Sid to fabricate 16 metal pieces for us and to then come to our location and weld them to an existing structure. He arrived right on time to meet me and together with his Dad, had everything welded and primed within an hour and a half. We couldn't be more pleased.

    I had some warehouse racks that I needed to be welded together and I was on a time crunch. Forrest got back to my request very quickly. He and his son showed up when they said they would and gave me a quote and got started the same day. They finished the job quickly doing quality work and were very friendly and professional.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
