The job went quite well. We were told that the welder would be here around 2pm, but didn't hear anything till we called around 4:30. The guy arrived after seven. We were quoted $80/hr. I asked if I should pay him before I left because I had to pick up my son. He said the company would invoice me. Welder was gone before I got back, and I was back shortly before 8:00pm. The following day I was charged $160. The math doesn't add up to me, but I did pay it. We had just moved and I didn't have the energy to debate and/or dispute. The gate still functions well, and for the welding I am thankful.

Showed up when he said he would. Actually called and asked if he could come 45 minutes early. This is good! Did a good job of repairing the weld on my tiller. I was very satisfied. I would use him again.

My experience could not have been better. Ram came out on a Sunday and had the work done and back to me in just a few hours. He contacted me immediately, price was more than fair, and the quality of the work was great (as evidenced by the comments of a few of my friends with welding experience). Highly recommend!

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.

Mr. St. John has done everything from fence repair to barn building to repairing electric issues on a trailer to running pipe for water for me. Excellent work done in a very timely fashion for a very LOW COST. Extremely dependable and communicative. Mr. St. John answers all your questions immediately and conversely alerts you to potential problems if they occur. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any job.

Aluminum boat had cracks in bottom due to accident. David brought the boat back to life welding all cracks shut. He came to my home twice and we put the boat in the water behind my house until all cracks were found and welded water tight....a tough job done professionally and well.

    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 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.
