Let me start by saying that I wish I could give Wayne 10 stars, but since I only have the option of 5, that will have to do. Our house is over 100 years old and we are preparing to paint the exterior again. Needless to say, we had quite a "honey do" list of odd repairs that needed attention. Clapboards that were broken or rotting, the railings on the front porch were falling apart, back stairs pulling away from the house, decorative trim that was rotting, brick foundation in need of repointing, new exhaust vents, and finally new doors. Wayne responded to my initial request in record time and stopped by later that day to give me an estimate. Of all the contractors interviewed, he was the only one that completely outlined the work needed with a full materials list and cost breakdown. Others were quite vague and wanted to repair or replace more than was necessary, turning the job into something larger than it really was. That is why I decided to hire Wayne, his straightforward honesty and winning personality sealed the deal. Wayne and his crew started the job immediately and completed it in good time. They cleaned up the yard after and disposed of all the waste materials as well. Earlier I mentioned the decorative trim, he had this ingenious product that was able to halt the rot and preserve as much of the original wood as possible because there would be no way to replicate the trim without spending a ton. This technique was also used on my kitchen bay window, which ended up saving me a fair amount of money in that area. Wayne also went out of his way to find a great deal for my porch door, I described what I wanted and he took care of the rest. Wayne also offered to come back and replace any clapboard that was questionable once the painter gets started. The other area where he excelled was the masonry. I actually contemplated doing the job myself, I'm so happy that I came to my senses and left that up to Wayne. He truly went above and beyond expectations. The brick foundation including the cement pad really needed help. Wayne fixed the grout as well as re-cemented the gap between the foundation and the pad, now when it rains really hard or when snow melts, the basement won't flood. Wayne had really good instincts and advice about tackling the different elements of our project. He approached the job as if he was the homeowner with a budget wanting to spend money wisely. I'm telling you, I can't say enough good things about Wayne and his crew at L & K Construction. I will definitely be using them again in the future.

We hired John to fix and finish the interior wooden stairs, bannister, baulsters and landing of our home. Our house is over 100 years old, and we're pretty sure they're original, so they were in rough shape. He did an amazing job! He listened to us when we said we wanted to keep as much of it original as possible, and kept us updated throughout the project when unexpected issues came up so that we could be part of the decision making process. The stairs no longer creek or wobble. I feel like he left the aged original beauty of the wood, but made it alot more safe to have in our home. The work was finished on time and in budget, even through a snow storm. We'd be happy to use him again.

Railings installed in new granite steps - Manchester, NH. Joao arrived a day late for the estimate, so I thought I had been stood up (he had the wrong date in his calendar). But I was happy that he made the trip to discuss my project and make recommendations. No other railing manufacturer recommended the material he did and it was ultimately what I chose, so as to not ever have to worry about rust. He custom made the railings and his guys installed them within the estimated time frame, which was quite reasonable. They were professional (except the smoking part) and did an good job overall. Joao also had the best pricing out of the 4 estimates I received. I would definitely recommend Azores Iron Work Corp. for your metal fabrication and installation project.

Installed an outdoor railing on an irregular set of stairs. I wanted it simple. Greg was able to conceptualize and execute what I wanted without much input from me. Plus, he was able to work in cold weather when other companies had said they wouldn't, so the job got done sooner than expected.

We needed carpentry work done on our home in a timely manner and Gil came to the rescue. Before a new walkway could be finished he had to repair an area where we had damage and the basement was open to the outside when the old cement stairs were removed.His estimate was accurate and the work done was exceptional. My wife and I would highly recommend Gil for any job large or small. He was recommended by the owners of Waterscapes who were adding, stairs, walkway and retaining wall.

The epic winter we had left my stairs completely disintegrated. It needed to be completely repaired. Dominic's quote was extremely fair and I had complete confidence in his expertise. Though he was booked almost a month out, work began as soon as he said it would. He and his crew worked very hard and were very professional. The finished product more than met my expectations. The TLC and little extras he put into the stairs, landing, railing and surrounding landscape were amazing. It is evident he takes pride in his work and is a true craftsman. Hands down I would hire him again and recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

I hired JL Masonry to repair the front stairs of my house. Jon was prompt, professional and neat. He replaced one of the limestone treads and the bluestone on the landing. He also repointed some of the brick and repaired the walkway at no extra charge! I would definitely recommend him for your next masonry job.

My experience with Woody was great. He installed an indoor railing at the top of our stairs and it came out fantastic. My wife and I were very happy with how it turned out. Woody and his team paid great attention to the detail and the finished product was flawless. We were in kind of a time crunch to get it replaced and Woody did as much as he could to expedite the process. I certainly plan on using them again in the future.

Mike has done at least 1/2 dozen jobs at my home. Building a new set of outside stairs and railings, tile and grout work in the bathroom, installation of a new storm door, along with a finished bannister inside were all done professionally and promptly with complete satisfaction. The tasks were reasonably priced and I would not hesitate to call on Mike again. He has all the tools and ability to do exceptional work.

I don't know if I can say enough wonderful things about Dennis Murphy. He was probably the most careful, honest, reliable, hardworking and friendly professional I've ever dealt with. My husband and I needed to have our stair railings redone and were having trouble finding someone to do it well for a reasonable price. We thought we would need entirely new railings, but Dennis found a way to salvage our old railings and make them look brand new (which saved us a ton of money.) He would have made more money installing new railings, but he cares so much about his customers he wants to do the best thing for them. He got the job done right away, and even though the job took longer and was more difficult than he originally thought he stuck with the original price he quoted us. What was really impressive was how much he seemed to care about his customers and how committed he was to the quality of his work. It was clear he wanted everything to be *perfect* and he wouldn't leave until it was. He even promised to come back and fix anything if the railing didn't pass inspection (and told us he would even come to the inspection if we wanted him to.) Rarely have I ever seen someone who takes such pride in his work. He is a true craftsmen. So do yourself a huge favor and hire this guy right now---he's just the best!

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.
