He tore down a flower bed rock retaining wall and hauled off, put down metal edging, cleaned beds and mulched. Great job, very efficient and accommodating. Very reasonable price. I am very pleased to recommend him!

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.

They did a great job. My yard needed to be fixed! They tore up all the weeds and the area that was being overgrown and laid down compost and then sod. They also placed a metal edge along the back so I could landscape it. THey finished in a timely manner and were on time to work. So far my yard looks great!

Was pleased overall. Had a TON of brush from my back yard so when I asked how big a load he could take, he said a 24' box truck. When he got there, he had a trailer so I was confused and a little frustrated, feeling misled. However, I felt much better after asking about it. Turns out, it's just easier for people to wrap their heads around box truck sized loads- which I agree with. We got ALL of our brush taken care of in one load. As he said, he's definitely not afraid to stack that trailer and pack it down good. Excellent value. Would just suggest clarifying that it's a trailer that holds the equivalent of a 24' box truck in the future. Would definitely recommend him.

Nolan did an excellent job of building a custom frame from square steel tubing to support a new granite countertop for our outdoor kitchen. The top required additional support and a slight rise in elevation in order to work for the granite slabs. Nolan was very professional and did the work quickly and within a very reasonable budget. His measurements of what we needed resulted in an excellent fit for the countertop. His metal working skills are very good!

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

Jose with Dapper Wood & Metal did an excellent job installing my greenhouse. I am very well pleased. The job was neat & professional. I had raised beds that needed to be enclosed because of a problem I was having with a squirrel eating my vegetables. Jose's wonderful job solved my problem and it was affordable. Thanks again Jose for a job well-done.

Martin came when he said he was coming, worked hard and did the job of putting together a metal cabinet and some store bought shelves. He was learning as he went along and was not speedy, but then, he wasn't expensive.

    Brian has completed a number of projects for me, and I think he's great. He is a meticulous carpenter and a creative and skilled craftsman. He remodeled my laundry room by removing cabinets and adding custom shelves & crown, it looks great. He added a trash station to my island cabinet, which is so much more functional. He installed custom shelves in a bedroom closet; he removed the metal ones and added nice painted shelves making the space much more usable. He also replaced my front door and added knobs and pulls to my kitchen. I plan to use him for future projects, specifically custom shelves in my master closet. I highly recommend Brian – he’s fantastic.

    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 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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
