Mike & Pat's tile work turned out great! They did a subway tile half-wall surround and floor-to-ceiling subway tile (and the ceiling) in the steam shower as well as Hydro Ban waterproofing. They also installed a granite curb and penny tile for the bathroom and laundry room floors. Looks top-notch. Thanks guys!

I feel very lucky to have connected with Tom. It's a crap shoot sometimes finding the right person to do the right job. Tom is a former contractor and he's the one you want for any carpentry type jobs. We had a gazebo with the top boards rotting away and Tom replaced them all with new redwood boards without disturbing the surrounding plants and he added some nice railings. He also put up an extension to our fence and as a bonus he fixed our gate. Thank you Tom! All these five star reviews are the REAL thing.

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.

Robert climbed through my attic to install my ceiling fan box and wiring. Job is not finished yet because I have not received the longer downrod. So far so good.

Jeff redid the tile in my master bedroom, installed a new tub and fixtures and put tile on the face of the tub. The only thing I wish was different is the width of the "decorative" tile strip. I would have wanted it wider and would have told Jeff if he had asked. Overall, I am extremely happy with the work.

Jason was extremely pleasant to work with. He was very prompt in responding and even accommodated a hick up in our schedule. Job was finished within a day of getting out quote. We are very pleased with the craftsmanship and going the extra mile to custom build our stair rail exactly how we wanted! Would highly recommend him for your home. We had the railing and he was able to lengthen and contour to the space.

Christian and his team built a beautiful wooden picket fence in front of my parents Lodi home creating a courtyard for them and their two little dogs. He is pleasant and knowledgeable as well as talented. We even paid him extra to paint it. Country Boy Construction arrived early for the estimate and was prepared to do the work two days later. He probably wishes he would have started a little earlier in the morning because it went past 5:00 and they seemed to be rushing the final paint job. Mom was a little sad about the overspray on some things but most is greenery and will grow out. The finished job looks fantastic and mom and dad are happy that their little dogs are secure. Thank you Christian

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 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.

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.
