I had a job that needed to be completed before Christmas and am so very happy that Barry was the first person to respond. I had a heavy and big reclaimed beam that I wanted to "float" above my fireplace. It was a little bit of a complex engineering feat and thankfully Barry had come up with a perfect design to hold the weight of the beam and get the look that I was after. He customized the metal brace and was able to seamlessly recess the beam into the wall so that it looks like it's always been there. He, and his assistant, were able to come out the next day and complete the job in under 2 hours. They were awesome!! I will definitely work with them again.

Dustin was great. He took the CAD drawings I created and turned them into reality very quickly (1 week turnaround). I now have 4 box-frame metal legs for the table I was building.

Needed a kitchen update and new flooring through out my down stairs and my kitchen tables refinished. Justin gave me stores to go to pick out Granite counter top and flooring. He had great ideas to bing everything together, very creative mind. Very impressed with the crews great quality of work. Everyday they left everything clean and in order. Took about week and a half to complete the project due to the delay of the flooring. Justin is very professional and easy to work with. I am very happy with the out come and everyone who comes to my house loves the new look. I actually was so excited about the new look I added crown molding and had my bathroom cabinets done too. JS Construction is terrific!!

My home repair list is too long to list! David Cline was able to complete every project I threw at him. My mother-in-law's 50 year old house needed help. Two bathrooms needed to be remodeled, floors needed to be tiled, David and Steve installed Wainscot, painted walls, repaired floors, repaired windows throughout the house. Several electrical jobs were required. Light fixtures were installed, plumbing was completed. The kitchen needed work on cabinets, appliances installed, and faucets installed. He also cleaned the gutters, and hauled away trash, old furniture, and carpets. As soon as I talked to David on the phone, I knew I had a dependable person to get the job done. He arrived early for the initial appointment, gave me a very reasonable quote for the job , and began working immediately. First of all, David is very patient. Thank you!! He listens to his customers, makes suggestions to steer us in the right direction. He demonstrates professionalism in all areas of his job. During the remodeling, he would check in with me often, to make sure everything was to my satisfaction. and it was! David has other professionals that work with him. Thank you David, Steve, Steven, and Eugene for your outstanding work. As the projects progressed so did my confidence in these fine handymen. They were considerate of the home, prompt, skilled, and friendly. I will definitely use David Cline for future jobs in my home. I will also be recommending him to my friends and anyone who is looking for someone trustworthy and skilled in the home improvement field.

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.
