My husband and I couldn't have imagined how wonderful the job TJ and Marvin did for us!! We hired them to - pretty much gut our backyard and deck - remodeling everything for us. They treated or job as if it was their own home. It was so much more than what we hoped for. I would - in a heartbeat - recommend them to anyone. The beautiful work they did for us will be enjoyed for years to come. They leveled our backyard, planted new sod, installed all new fencing, built patio with a fire pit. They tore down and built a new, enlarged deck that wraps around the side of our house. They took out our bedroom window and installed sliding doors to the new deck which looks out onto a beautiful wetland. They installed a new ceiling fan. When we moved into our house 5 years ago, our furnace was in one of our bathrooms. Due to the design of the bathroom, there was no way to cover the opening to the furnace - leaving it an eye sore. They took our the door to the bathroom and installed a smaller door - leaving them room to install a beautiful - barn door style door - closing the opening to the furnace. In the future, any remodeling to our home will be easy, all we'll do is call TJ and Marvin!! If I could, I'd give them 6 plus stars!!

I was extremely satisfied with my experience with Pro Welding. From the beginning to the end, it was all extremely positive. They did a beautiful job of making and installing wrought iron railings for the front entrance of my home. They look beautiful and I am extremely happy with the job. I would definitely recommend David at Pro Welding.

When I moved, I discovered the leg of my new coffee table was broken a the support for the base. I found Juan on Craigslist and he was able to get it fixed quickly and at a good price! A little bit of spray paint made it indistinguishable from the other leg (I had to get on the floor and look at them all to figure out which one he fixed -- I think it was this one.). The table has been taken apart and moved again since then and continues to hold up well and look good. I will definitely use Juan again for any welding needs.

Hi, my name is Robert. I offer welding services that range from repair to minor or light fabrication. I have about 15 years of welding experience and I am here to offer that experience to you through my welding service. I can and do from time to time practice all three phases with a six G and three G certified welding test. I am highly skilled in mig, tig, stick or aka arc processes of welding. I do not or will not consider on site welding. I only preform my services in a shop environment. If you have parts or items that you don't want to drive around town to get fixed and don't want to wait two or more months, then this might be a good option. How do I price jobs? It's simple, time is money and money is time. Most projects with a little prep work can be turned in a day or so depending on my schedule. I will let you know ahead of time if I am backed up on being able to complete work in a timely manner. I will not consider any project for less than 50 dollars. The price will depend on the type of project. I own and operate a tree service so I am backed from a business standpoint, so I can accept all forms of credit, debit, cash and check payments. This is open to anyone and everyone that needs some minor welding done, whether it is for commercial or residential uses. I am a weekend warrior. I am currently working on the following and have the most experience on: * Dump Trailers and All Trailers * Parts, Brackets and Mounts * Minor (In Shop Only) Rod Iron/Steel Fence Repair * Mower Decks (This is for the re-builders out there) * Tractors and other Construction Gears * Automotive The list goes on. Note: Refundable fees may apply to larger items that need to be left on site. Example: You need to have some D-rings welded on to your trailer. You drop off the trailer with parts or material on Sunday. If I tell you that your project will be completed by Tuesday then I expect you to have your trailer picked up by Wednesday. I may collect a small deposit depending on the size of your trailer in this case refundable and required up front. Thanks for your time and feel free to contact me any time seven days a week.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
