Tim, Is the man for the job ! I thought I could never find anybody capable enough to help complete this uncommon tedious tasks. We needed someone to help us removed the old paint off metal stairwell rails from the previous owners. We tried, and did not realized how hard, and time consuming it was. And then Tim came along and saved the day by answering my uncommon project request. He was very thoroughly and showed me pictures of his previous completed projects he did. The other thumbtack offers was unrealistic saying they could get anything done in 2 hrs? This rail paint removal project takes 10-20 hrs or more! So I choose Tim. He came in early today as we agreed on. And stayed and work for about 8 hr outside. It was about to rain but he still offered to remove almost all of the old paint from the rails. And even helped cleaned up. I definitely recommend him and would use him again for another project. This man works hard so please be considerate and reasonable by offering him some water, refreshment, chair, etc anything that could him. These things are essential! :)

I started working with Stewart approx. 12 yrs ago. He has done exterior and Interior painting and wallpapering for me, as well as faux painting (sponging, stripes, etc.) walls. He also has refinished stair parts to match existing stain colors as well as refinishing small floor areas when damaged. He has installed crown-molding, chair rail and other occasional carpentry (shelves). His prices are fair and he is willing to do the extras which always come up for a nominal cost.

Mauricio was awesome! Super responsive and easy to work with. He started the job on Saturday before the rain hit, came back to finish the work yesterday. Our front stoop and stairs look amazing, the railings are on there rock solid now too! If we need more stone/concrete work done - we'll definitely be giving him a call.

David Aguilar was responsive and professional throughout my stair railing project. I gave him a design goal and he produced exactly what I wanted for a good price and my project was finished in half the time expected. I will gladly refer him to others and I will hire him again. Stacey

Beautiful, handmade wood railings. Primed and painted. Also painted trim around front door. Re-grouted flagstone stairs and walkway and replaced four pieces of flagstone where four new handrail main posts were placed. Sealed all the flagstone. It looks fabulous. Friendly, skilled workers who did a great job. They cleaned up at the end of each day and all requests were met with "We'll take care of it." Highly recommended.

Repaired railing and handrail on rear of home. Responded very quickly to my inquiry. Was knowledgeable about the project, had fair pricing and listened to my concerns. Job was completed within a week. During first meeting, settled on work to be done, schedule and project. The night of the project, it rained so there were a few touch ups needed and they came back the very next day and finished the work. Highly recommended.

Vintage Wood Floors and Stairs installed new railings in our house and I could not be happier with their professionalism and the finished product. Arnold was wonderful to work with throughout - he came to our house and gave an estimate and suggestions for the design, worked with us to do the project at a budget that we were comfortable with, and was responsive to questions in the planning process. They were able to do the installation just days after the initial consultation, and were great at communicating throughout the process to get my input (on the wood finish, etc.). The new railings beautifully complement the "style" of our home, and their craftsmanship and attention to detail is fantastic. Truly talented and courteous professionals.

I am extremely pleased with all the work that JT Painting and Home Improvement did for me recently (June 2015). I hired JT to fix the structurally unsound stair rail and newel post for my single-family home and he did a terrific job with the repair - it is as good as new without going to the expense and hassle of replacing it entirely. He also repaired/replaced interior doors, installed a ceiling fan, repaired various drywall dings and holes, power washed my deck and siding, and other improvement projects. The work was excellent and for a very fair price. He is responsive, returns calls quickly, gives you a least-cost option for larger projects and delivers on schedule. I will not hesitate to contract with him again for my next home improvement projects. He and his crew take pride in their work and it shows. The dozen or so small and larger projects that he did for me all went without a hitch - one of the very best experiences I have had as a homeowner for 25 years! Thanks for a job very well done.

I hired parz design for stairs baluster installation. Callie came and gave me a quote which was reasonable and we settled on a date. Her team were punctual and got the work done without much hassle. I was missing 3 balusters and one of the workers even went out of the way to pick them up from Lowes. He installed the 3 missing ones and they didn’t match because of the shine. I had to custom order those and Callie’s team came back in couple of weeks to replace those with no charge. I would definitely recommend parz design. They are 5 out of 5! Hire them!

Naula's team did great work in our home over the past two years. First, they installed oak, double-sided hand railings and bannisters on both stairwells of our home. A year later, they returned to refinish the parqueted floor in our kitchen and in our entry hallway. In both jobs they stuck to their schedules, were neat, cleaned up afterwards and finished on time. They lived up to all their promises. Their price was fair and a lower than their competition. I would not hesitate to use them again, if needed, or recommend them to other homeowners. G&B

I hired Colwill Construction & Design, LLC to do handyman work in my home. I had lots of jobs from repairing front and back doors, drywall work, painting and repairing railings and power washing front and back concrete areas. There were other things needed and included in these visits. They spent more than adequate time in my home to make sure the jobs were done well. The work was done to the utmost of my satisfaction and was surprisingly quite affordable and guaranteed. I was able to get a written estimate of what the labor and material costs would be, allowing me to know, in advance, if I could afford it. I appreciate that there were no hidden costs, expert work, and friendly staff. I felt comfortable with the staff and was very happy with the work! I will definitely use this company again and thank Jeff Colwall and staff for allowing me to get a lot of work done at an affordable price.

Mr. Ford welded up some broken iron railings for me that was causing some safety concerns. He did a great job fabricating new posts and installing them on-site. He was very easy to work with and was very professional. All work was done in a timely manner. I highly recommend him and would use 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.
