Tim was great to work with - he was diligent and hard-working. He repaired our iron porch railing in two evenings, even working into the dark and rain!

I have never encountered a better contractor than Arnold at Vintage. His professionalism, knowledge of the project: handrail, railings, stair rails - wood with wrought iron tines - was impressive, as was the quality of his work. On time arrival on project, cleaned during the work, and finished earlier than expected with stunning results. He went above and beyond when he offered help in two non-project home repairs I was doing myself. I was truly moved by his kindness as I'm working to put our home on the market. Working with contractors is usually stressful, but not with Arnold and assistant, Marlon. Loved them, absolutely highly recommend them.

Christian and his team did a great job on the replacement of bricks and iron railing along steps leading one story up to front door of our townhouse. Original railing was 30 years old, totally rusted, and disconnected from the steps, which made it a serious liability. The team found bricks that matched the shape of the current ones, constructed the railing so it was identical to the original design (required by the HOA) and painted it with three layers of primer/paint to fend off future rust. Project included sanding and repainting an iron gate as well. I am totally pleased with the finished product and will be soon using the 5th Gen Group for another brick project.

Tyrone was punctual and addressed my immediate concern next day. The wind ruined my storm door and wrought iron rail to my entryway he came the next day cleaned up shattered glass. Replaced the door (even went to pick it out from the store based on my description of what I wanted) and refinished the rail rather than telling me to purchase it new he even refinished the other railing and complete reset them in the concrete. He’s personable honest and thorough I’ll be using him in the future for sure!

Glascoe Welding performed excellent services. These wrought-iron fencing was completed in a timely fashion and the cost was economically sound. Last but not least the fences are absolutely gorgeous.

This appears to be a small company. The workman, Hugh, came over to view my steps and discuss what I needed in a wrought iron railing. He was ready to install the railing in only a few days. The railing design is graceful yet sturdy. I feel more at ease going down my steps now, especially at night. I strongly recommend this company.

In May 2013 John Locantore Arrived to my home on time for an estimate to replace a retaining wall. He went over different options for the wall. After reviewing all the estimates, John pricing was very reasonable and he was very professional and knowledgeable about the work that needed to be done. Because I had to go through my HOA the job did not start until Sept 2013. In the month of 9/2013 I allmaster Builders Inc. installed a new 6x6 poured concrete retaining wall and new iron railing on wall. My deck was not leveled and they raised the deck back to level. They removed and replaced porch posts and removed the rotten wood on porch. Doing the process Angel the foreman kept me up to date on the work being done. The job took about two weeks to complete. The crew was very professional and hard workers. Each day the crew arrived very early to my home. I am very happy with the work allmaster Builders, Inc. have completed for me. I will be using them for future projects in my home and highly recommend them to others.

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.
