We asked Tim to demolish and dispose of a wood shed, metal shed, two planters and a swing set. He was always showed up when he said he would and promptly started working. He was professional, courteous, safety conscious, caring and hard working. He has made this process smooth from the start with the on site quote and the fast removal. I HIGHLY recommend him!!

I just moved to Williamsburg and had a lot of empty boxes and paper from the move, plus the garage was full of builder scraps and junk. Jack Rowsey and partner did an excellent job of cleaning up my garage, sweeping it as they finished up. They were friendly, efficient and most of all gentlemen. I will have them back next spring to power wash my house, any thing else that I can think of! They were great.

I will continue to seek his services for any future work needed. Great job Paul, highly recommended to anyone else needing metal work.

    I met Mike through word of mouth. I heard he made furniture. I brought him a giant box of beer bottle caps and just said "make something". A few days later he called and told me to come pick "it" up. To my absolute surprise, there standing in his garage was an awesome coffee table, with the bottle caps under the smoothest lacquer table top finish I have ever seen. Steel legs with amazing weld lines, the craftsmanship is impeccable. When I realized he was able to weld, I pointed out a brush guard I had in the bed of my truck that I had no mounting brackets for. He looked under the truck for about 5 minutes, then next thing i know he's cutting and welding scrap steel he had laying around. Within minutes, I had brand new mounting brackets on the truck and he didn't even ask for payment on them. All in all, service is great, whatever he does for you gets done quick and right. I'd recommend him for almost any project you've got in mind.

    After getting 5 estimates on my roofing needs, 3 of those from Thumbtack, I chose New World Painting and Handyman to hire. Avel Nunez and his crew were great to work with from the first meeting to discuss my needs to the finished project. Avel, the owner of New World Painting and Handyman, thoroughly discussed step by step what he and his crew would do to complete the roof. He took the time to help me choose the perfect roof shingle type and color and also kept me informed of any problems that arose while completing the project and discussed additional costs that were needed to resolve the issues. Once the original shingles were taken off, large holes were identified in 6 pieces of plank boards and plywood; he replaced them all and charged me minimal; as a matter fact my final cost was still below the first estimates given by the other 4 companies. Due to unforeseen issues, the men had to work an additional 2-3 hours, but they did it without complaining because they wanted to complete the job in one day, as promised to me. After the job was completed, they properly cleaned up the scraps and nails from my yard and removed the dumpster used. The owner thanked me for given him and his company an opprtunity to do this job. I plan to use them to complete other home improvements, as well coming up. (Pics of roof attached.)

    Tom repaired some metal tennis ball baskets for me and did great work. His schedule was flexible, the work was finished on time, and the price was reasonable.

    Metal Works LLC fabricated a steel pedestal to support a change machine by copying a sample that I provided. They had it powder coated along with the sample. The work was top notch. The price was high. Maybe they could do better on a project with higher volume.

    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.
