We had circular metal stairs gowing up three floors. The banisters were not child safe because they were too far apart. Rob welded extra ones in very carefully so nobody believes they have not been there all the time. The work turned out to be more difficult then preestimated and took longer then expected. But we love the result and will definetely use Rob's services again.

The gentleman re-attached and welded on the the two decorative metal grates on our wrought iron door. He also painted the area where the repair was done so that it would blend in with the rest of the door. The gentleman was very polite, friendly, professional and communicative. He arrived on time, prepped the area, worked outside on a rainy day, cleaned up after the work was done and the door looked GREAT when he was done. He also said he guarantees his work and just call if there are any issues.

Prior to working with Creative Concepts, I had trouble getting quotes from companies--I let P. Muha at Creative Concepts know about the difficulties I had been having. He listened to my frustration, and understood that it was very important to me to get my back porch steps repaired before winter weather arrived. I walk with a cane and my husband is 83 years old. Our old steps and railings were very wobbly. Creative Concepts came out to measure within a couple days of our contact, he came back in person to discuss his work proposal options and quotes. He quickly scheduled our work and both the new steps and the garage fascia were completed in less than one work day. The area was completely cleaned up, and their work was awesome. The steps look so great I posted a picture of them on Facebook to show off to my family and friends. Now I can confidently go up and down the stairs feeling safe and a huge worry is off my shoulders. The price and terms were very reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend Creative Concepts to anyone. They are the Best in my book.

Manuel did a great job. Excellent communication and follow thru. The cost of the labor and equipment was more than fair. The vinyl siding work lead to conversations about repairs needed within our home and we decided to go with G-Lez Builders for the basement work. EXCELLENT job on the flooring and stairs - Excellent.

Jason & Stephanie were amazing! They're attention to detail is unmatched. We wanted to convert our carpeted stairs to hardwood and refinish our old, oddly colored, hardwood floors. They carefully assessed our need and provided suggestions. I considered other quotes, but Taylor Hardwood was most willing to work within our budget. They matched the wood stain to our current staircase banister, perfectly! And they made our current/old floors look brand new. I couldn't be more satisfied with the outcome of the project.

I wrote my own scope for the work to be done and Curtis was the only contractor that took the additional time to make sure my scope was correct. Basically I did the removal of my 16 year old carpet and padding from my loft and stairs. Removed the staples and cleaned the bare plywood floors. Submitted to Thumbtack for bid and got back 5 estimates. Curtis was not the lowest nor the highest but his comments let me know he knew what he was doing. I am so glad he took the additional time to suggest to me additional things I missed. I am a contractor myself and I have installed wood floors, but I could not do the job Curtis did for my loft and stairs. He did a wonderful job and I will definitely use him again to do work in my home. Very professional, very neat.

Mike and his team did several jobs for us, he tore down and completely rebuilt the rear porch, removed a wooden side door and installed a steel door, that others told us could not be done without having the door specially made. He removed gutters on the porch roof, replaced rotted wood and installed flashing, it looks so much better. We are very pleased with the work done and Mike and his crew were very professional, all work was completed in a week's time and we will surely call him again for other jobs. Mike is a pleasant and fair guy, unlike so many other contractors. The only thing that could have improved the experience would be to have more money so that every job needed could have been done at this time. They were on time and worked until quitting time, they take pride in what they do. D L

I had a wonderful time working with Mr. Flood. He was the only contractor to provide me with everything I wanted in relation to quoting: 1) detailed quote including breakdown of cost and 2) proposed design plans for the back porch. Then he provided me with 3 references and some pictures of prior works. He did a wonderful job in constructing the stairs and painting them. He did not take a week or so to do a few days worth of work. And best of all, he stayed within cost and cleaned up after himself. I look forward to working with him on future projects

Ralph is a very nice man, arrived on time and did excellent work. He put a new stair railing in my 91 year old home, and it wasn't easy, but he did an excellent job. My husband and I would reccomend him for any kind of remodeling work you may need.. We will call him in the future. Thanks, Ralph

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
