This was a great experience. Thomas, the owner, came out and gave us the quote on the spot. He was able to update the quote while we talked through different options (old fence removal/haul away, metal vs wood posts, cap and trim, etc). We chose cedar pickets, treated pine rails, and galvanized metal posts. No other company could match the price with these quality materials. The installation was fast and professional. The fence looks great. We will definitely contact Thomas/TNT Fence Company again for our future fencing needs.

Rhett has completed numerous projects for me over the years, including putting a new metal roof on my house. Rhett is mindful of deadlines and details. He is professional and communicates well with his clients. I would highly recommend Rhett to complete the smallest of home improvement projects to a full remodel. He is reliable and holds himself to the highest standards of integrity.

    Susan was everything that contractors in San Antonio have stopped being. She was prompt. She showed up when she said she would. When she got delayed, she would communicate - in plenty of time. She gave a great value. Her work was competitively priced and superbly done. She was accurate. She said the job would take 5 days. I assumed 2 weeks. It took 4 1/2 days. Her crew was superb. They respected our time, our home and our life. They wouldn't get us out of bed in the morning or disturb our breakfast, but you could set your clocks by their 9 a.m. start time. Then they would work until sunset. That's how the job took 4 1/2 days. It was 12-hour days. They cleaned up the job site...every day! I'm not sure why they cleaned up at 9 at night, but they did. It was just one more way they showed respect. When I took out my recycling or picked up the paper. My porches and yards were clean. We have an old (1945), highly stylized home, with three porches that needed rebuilding. They now look better than new and I am looking to our next remodeling job!

      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.

      Jacob worked on my 3000 sq' foot storage facility and his workman ship was outstanding. He knew every aspect of this construction project from forming the foundation, insulating, finishing out the metal trim and installing roll up doors. He is a very good welder who is punctual and works very hard. Brian Crenwelge - Owner of Longhorn Storage, Harper, Texas

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.
