Steve is the man! Needed some work done on my rental property. He handled all my needs for my property which included new porch railings and stairs, getting power working in the back and putting up some outdoor lights, redoing the kitchen, painting the interior and putting up a front chain link fence. He did an excellent job in every area. He was on time and made it a point to be courteous of my tenant's time and was efficient in his time at the job site. There was only a minor issue I found out after he finished all work which was power was not working in the kitchen and the power was working before he started the job. I told Steve and he was more than happy and willing to go back out and restore power to the kitchen at no additional charge. He said he would make the trip out and restore the power in the near future. I trust he will do that. Overall, he really did a great job and put a lot of heart into it and I would definitely recommend using him and I would definitely use him again. Thanks Steve!

Steve made beautiful metal gates for my new house specifically designed to prevent my dogs from getting out. He actually made really great suggestions about where to put screened gates vs. solid gates and it all made sense. The solid gate would go in the very front of the house and the screened ones in the back which would still provide security but also visibility. Interestingly, Steve's prices are not that much higher than other fencing companies who don't do the same superior quality work. The screened fencing may look plain but that is how I wanted it so the pets could not get anything caught on any part of it. In the past when I have seen metal fences and gates they have looked tacky but the ones Steve created are beautiful and sold me on steel gates. I don't think I would have a wood fence ever again!

Ernie has done work for me at my rental home for over 5 years, I don't consider calling anyone else. Recently, I had evicted a renter, Ernie made himself available to help me gain access to the house when the sheriff arrived, he also made sure that the locks were changed and the house was secure. The renter caused a great deal of damage and Ernie walked through the house with me to assess the needed repairs. I received his very fair estimate quickly and the work was completed much faster than I expected. I wish I could post the before and after; Ernie patched a lot of drywall damage, I couldn't tell where the patches were when finished, he matched the texture perfectly. He hauled truckloads of trash away, painted the entire inside, replaced old ceiling fans, grouted tile, everything looked brand new when he was finished. The work was done quickly and I was able to get it back up for rent right away. Ernie also rebuilt my patio cover, 2 years ago which still looks great. It's hard to find great service and quality work these days, Ernie offers both along with honest pricing.

Rafael Rivera and his team worked on my house flooring. They were very professional, great manners, clean, trustworthy, highly experience and quick. They did a fantastic job with installing new laminate flooring, tiles for the bathrooms and stained all of my cabinets in the house to match the floors. My house looks brand new! I'm very satisfied with their work and highly recommend them for your house project!

Jack is the greatest. He assembled and installed at our home a very delicate Maria Theresa chandelier with Swarovski crystals. When I explained the project to him over the phone, he knew exactly what needed to be done. You could say that he was already at "T minus 40" before even coming out! If you have a project that needs to be done right, and at a reasonable price - please call Jack. I know that I will call on him again!

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.
