I hired Galveston Construction to remove both my neighbors' 6' privacy fences and my own 4' corral fence and replace them with one 6' pine privacy fence. They pulled out all of the old posts planted in concrete. They filled in all of the holes and erected a new fence using the latest construction tricks that I would have never thought of. They implimented a 2x6 Rot Board at the base with a 2x4 back creating a ledge to nail the slats into. The gates were framed in steel which he welded together, and included supports for additional strength. In addition to using only top grade lumber, the gate hardware is heavy duty and locks easily when closed. He custom fashioned the fence with great carpentry work around a few trees that were growing right on my property line. He was very careful to make sure that the neighbors were happy with the new construction. He even went as far as repairing the gate on the next door neighbor's fence that had been hanging in disrepair for years. What I got from Stan was a beautiful fence that will remain standing for years and years. Will I hire him again? I certainly will. His bid was his word. And written on a signed contract. No add-ons, no additional charges, no hassles, no bull shit. I never had a question as to what he was going to do at any time. A real pro.

1. On behalf of the Morris Family, we would like to thank Allout Fabrication Corp (Mr. David Dixon) for his service. I hired Allout Fabrication Corp to make my gates vision come to life which were my welding project #1. The need for the gates was not only to embellish the courtyard and patio enclosure but mainly to provide protection and additional from of security. 2. Mr. Dixon is a great welder and a total pro at what he do! I’ve worked with a lot of people/contractor and I’ve never been more satisfied with anyone’s work as I am with Mr. Dixon. First, he answeres his phone, no answering service. He responded to all my calls, texts, and emails in a timely manner. He was extremely pleasant, professional, and very co-operative to work with. 3. The biggest CON I have experience in working with Mr. Dixon is that he is in high demand by returning customs. I had to wait TWO months before he was able to fit my project in his schedule but the best part is the price; although, my project were expensive his prices were fair and I would willing to wait for his service.  4. In addition, his commitment to the art of welding is beyond the call of duty. Mr. Dixon were very efficient and thorough in his work. He take great price in his work.  I have witness him correcting many minus defects that other would have turn a blind eye to. Although, there were many factors which cause delays in this project and added additional stress onto Mr. Dixon ranging from no helper, hot weather, and raining days he did not quit. He worked full days by hisself installing my gates. That alone speak dedication and commitment. Any concerns I had he addressed, any problems he provided solutions, and any discrepancies I noticed he fix or is schedule to be fix.  I tell you his attitude toward his trade is fantastic, he is a very positive man. When it comes to welding, I don’t think there’s anything he can’t handle. 5.  We have received numerous compliments regarding his craftsmanship on our gates project. Thanks to Mr. Dixon I can move freely, safely, and with confident within my courtyard and patio. I am overall very satisfied with his excellent work.  6.  I am seriory about this statement. I look forward to the opportunity of working with Mr. David Dixon again. I could not wait to hire him for another project, on the last day of my gates project I hire him and paid him in advance for the extension to my gates project. I TRUST him.  Mr. Dixon aim in pleasing his customs, he wants to leave happy knowing he have exceeded your expectation and you are please with the result.  He’d be the first one I’d call for all my my future needs, large or small!  I am a perfectionist and only have one standard when it comes to anything I do or have done for me and that - PERFECTION. That’s what I got when I worked with Mr. Dixon. Thanks again Mr. Dixon. 7. User rating: 5 out of 5 stars. A SUPERWELDER! – A TRUE ALL-AMERICAN WELDER Respectful, Mrs. Raspberry Morris

Jose helped us fixing the steel front fence that was hit by a foreign object. He fixed it by cutting it off, straightening and welding it back. The result looks amazing like nothing has ever happened! The price is VERY competitive. Highly recommend him.

I always worry that when I read these reviews friends of the business owner are making them up and they are not real, therefore I thought it best to put the link to the auction property I have had this young man and father-in-law help me transform into a beautiful home to live. https://www.redfin.com/TX/Crosby/702-Nautilus-St-77532/home/30281875. This team of two are perfectionists. They are to be trusted when your back is turned, amazing millwork, wood trim, painting craftsmen, and as well young Ulises is super great in helping you run crews when the hired contractor only speaks Spanish. Just ask him for Before and After pictures and he will send you a PDF resume of projects he has worked on. Mark Armstrong Armstrong and Castle Properties

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
