We needed railings put back onto our front porch after having our steps repointed and and a step replaced (this also required a hole to be drilled into the new stone step). Our previous contractors ditched us before finishing. Paul was great. He responded quickly and gave us what we thought was a fair price for the work. He was able to get over to do the work within a few days, and did a great job. He also helped us with some plumbing issues while he was here. He is easy to work with, communicates well, and does solid work. I'd highly recommend him.

New wrought iron railing, with personal touch. Greg helped with details, selection of materials samples for finishing and coordination of project was very very helpful. Great to be able to work with a contractor who does what he says he's going to do, on time on schedule on budget. And he returns calls, and email, just the way it should be exceptional in today's market.

I needed a spare/storage room finished. The room needed Sheetrock, plywood flooring, taping and sanding. Gil did all of that and then painted, added baseboard trim as well as trimmed out the door and window. Separately he removed 2 in wall a/c units and closed up the openings including new shingles and exterior paint. Gil did an excellent job! He's meticulous and reasonably priced and just a nice person. I'm looking forward to having him back for other projects in the future. Worth every penny!!!

I have nothing but positive feedback for Jon at JL Masonry & Remodeling. I was looking for a professional mason to spot repoint a large brick staircase for my rental property and replace 5 cracked and crumbling bluestone treads and secure the wrought iron railings. I was also looking for a fair price obviously. Finally, I was looking for prompt service as this property is a rental and the condition of the stairs had become a tripping hazard for tenants and guests. Jon delivered on all fronts. When I posted the job description I had several quotes come back from other masons. Some were ridiculous but there were a few that were competitive with Jon's quote. I decided on Jon because his reviews were the most positive. Prior to providing the quote he visited the job site on his own to size up the job. After receiving what I felt was a reasonable price I just wanted to ensure certain areas of the staircase were included in his estimate so I asked if he'd mind meeting me in person to discuss in detail the scope of work covered by the estimate. He was more than happy to meet me and he put my worries at ease. Judging someone's character can be difficult but after meeting Jon in person I felt I was dealing with an honest guy, so we shook hands and I provided a deposit. The job was completed in several stages due to the number of steps to be replaced and different areas needing attention. There was not much downtime in between stages, which I appreciated as Jon knew several families live on the premises and need access to the staircase. After each stage I viewed the progress and provided input on some minor concerns. Jon was not put off or offended and took my feedback in stride as a professional and actually seemed to care about my concerns and how to best complete the job. I am very satisfied with the completed work product and the overall experience I had with Jon at JL Masonry & Remodeling. I have several properties and if I need masonry work in the future Jon will be my first call and I wouldn't hesitate referring him, in fact, I already did! Thanks Jon!

I hired Tim to help put all the finishing touches on a house I am renovating. I have a deadline to get the home on the market, and Tim quoted me a decent price, within my budget and his work is excellent. The job consisted of installing a few interior doors, windows, and a few stair cases, a small deck and some railings. He also did a lot of drywall work and boxed in some electrical, gas and water lines for me. I am very happy with his attention to detail, and how he was able to figure out ways to get the job done right and bring everything together. He and Eric are very nice people and I will be certainly hiring them again for my next project.

Contacted Arthur about replacing a tub with a shower system. From the start he was great, suggesting things to do that would save on the budget. He was really good working around supplier issues and making sure I was in the loop the whole way. I ended up having him also replace porch stairs that were past their prime and install a storm door as well. Arthur did a great job with a the projects and I would definitely contact him in the future for other jobs.

We had Edson do repairs on some shoddy work that was done when our house was originally built (reinforcing outside stairs, new deck/stair handrails, facade replacement & repair). His pricing was fair compared to other estimates, and the final cost was the same as estimated- no surprises. Edson is great with communication, keeping in touch and explaining what work needs to be done. And most importantly, he does a great job! He's thorough, pays attention to detail & always cleaned up at the end of the day. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend him to anyone looking for home repairs & remodeling. He did such a fantastic job, we hope to work with him again in the future.

It was a slightly unusual job. In order for our new refrigerator to be delivered we needed to cut the hinges off of an iron gate and then have them welded back. The whole process went smoothly and the gate can still be locked.

Troy did a fantastic job on a railing around my van height loading dock that had been hit, bent, & broken in several spots. He was very punctual, polite, & professional. Troy also went above & beyond what I expected in the job when finished. His cost was more than reasonable for what I thought would have been much more. I would not hesitate to hiring Troy again, & would recommend him highly to anyone in need of his services.

Joe performed a significant amount of work in our home including: remodeling a bathroom, laying tile (2 rooms), enclosing a garage, remodeling a den, building and installing an ornamental railing on a portico over our front door, and installing and painting 4 rooms/ceilings. His work was completed on time and on budget. He was neat and most importantly, he showed up when he said he would! I would highly recommend Joe to anyone looking for a trustworthy and professional contractor. Richard G. , North Easton

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
