We have a 100 year old house and the hardwood floor under our bathroom toilet was buckling due to plumbing issues. David came out right away and quoted us a very fair price and gave us several options. We ended up needing new hardwood floors (so everything would match) and a new toilet along with fixing the plumbing. David did a beautiful job removing and installing everything. He was incredibly responsive as well with a couple tweaks we needed made. We are going to use him again for future projects. I would highly recommend him.

Great experience with Kelly, Fred and the team at Rekleinery. Did a great job fixing & remounting my poorly-installed kitchen cabinets and replacing a shorted-out ceiling fan, and also provided advice on several other projects. Very responsive and easy to deal with, easy billing process. Would definitely hire again.

Roof removed and new roof installed at my home. Completed on time and on budget. Rob and the staff did an excellent job of communication and paid attention to detail. Rather large home completed in under two days. Cleanup of the debris was a major concern, and it was handled beyond our expectations. I highly recommend Building Impressions.

I recently had Stob construction paint my basement. It has about 5 or 6 large walls in the basement and a hallway going down two sets of stairs. They painted all the walls down the stair and the basement, the ceiling and trim. They sent out two guys who worked non stop on this project with great care and detail. I was at work while they painted but my mom was there to supervise. She said the workers were very curtious, respectable and hard working. She said that she offered them food and drinks but they said they were fine and worked non stop. They finished the entire project in 1 day! They came around 9 in the morning and were out by 5 pm. when I came home from work I went to look at the basement and it was even better than I could have imagined! I could not find one mistake or anything. The lines were crisp and clean, the paint was even... and I really give them credit because our basement does not have a ton of light to work with! I was worried how well the painters would be able to see all the nooks and crannies, but they pulled it off! Andy, the owner, is also a pleasure to work with! I originally came on Thumb tack to find someone to paint our basement... I had several companies respond and come out to give us quotes. Andy was by far the most professional and curtious. He responded in a timely manner with the quotes and his prices were fair. I enjoyed working with Stob construction throughout this entire process- they made it very easy to do business with them! I plan to have Stob Construction paint my living room, bathroom, kitchen cabinets and doors throughout the house. I am very pleased with what was done so far and am looking forward to continuing business with this company! Highly recommend to anyone!!!

He got the job done. Good communication. I do not believe he was a garage door specialist - just a general handyman. However, he was able to install the door I purchased and I have no complaints about the workmanship.

Overall very happy with the re-hanging of the bathroom pedestal sink. Very knowledgeable of what needed to be done and how it needed to be done. Left a couple of scratches on the floor from the pedestal which can probably be fixed. Will definitely use Gerald again!

Let me start by stating that I have worked with many contractors in my lifetime, and I am not easy impress. Honestly, I am usually left unsatisfied. This was not the case with Gilbert Construction. When John was out for the initial quote, he was punctual and prudent. I informed him that I was bidding out the project to other companies and he was understanding, patient, and respectful of that process. From my initial Thumbtack search to my multiple questions leading up to the job, John was always very responsive. After receiving 3 quotes for my new deck project, John came in at the fairest price. With John's expert input, I even changed the overall plan for the deck to better fit the needs for my family. This option was actually less expensive than the original plan, so it was in no way an upsell. I remain grateful that he cared enough to help me plan the right project to fit our home. He scheduled my job for a Sunday and finished the entire job in 10 hours with him and his other employee. I cannot overstate how impressed I was with their professionalism and quality of work. I had a challenging project and was VERY specific with how I wanted my new deck to curve to fit existing landscaping. He saw my vision and built the new deck EXACTLY how I wanted it. I am a true stickler, and paid very close attention to initial framing and support of the deck when they started to build early in the morning. I am no stranger to home improvement projects, whether I build myself or hire a contractor. This is, without a doubt, one of THE BEST decks I have ever seen built. After construction was completed, we sat down together and he guided me through the best ways to stain, seal, and care for my deck long term. I would highly recommend John Gilbert.

Matt has done a variety of jobs for my family home in Kalamazoo over the years. Finding him about six years ago has been one of the best things that's happened to us in Kalamazoo. He seems to be able to do anything, and he does it in such good spirits that we're sorry when he leaves. The variety of things he has done is huge, and he has often responded on short notice, and been willing to at least come and look at something ASAP. He fixed a problem with our bathtub faucet which had been botched by two professional plumbers, and then declared "impossible" by a third. It took him five minutes, and he needed no new parts... he just fixed the part that was bad! Amazing. Other things he has done around our house include: rebuilding the basement stairs (on an emergency basis), repairing and painting 4 large columns on the front of our home, installing grab bars for our mother, inserting a light switch to the electrical circuit in the kitchen pantry, repairing our telephone wires, trimming our hedges and cutting down a couple of trees, and most recently installing new flooring in our bathroom which included replacing the shutoff valve and supply line and putting all new parts in the toilet. He shows up on time, he works to budget, and he smiles a lot. I have recommended Matt for several friends, and I recommend him to you without any reservations whatsoever. I just ask you not to keep him TOO busy so that he's available for us too!

Josh came out and did a chimney inspection. After determining we would have to spend a great deal of money upgrading the chimney he suggested we install a ventless heater for the short term. It was installed and now we have a warm room. He didn't charge an arm and a leg and he showed up when he said he would. A great job. I hope he will be available for future projects.

Rick came out quickly after contacting him to give a bid on some trim work in 4 rooms that we had new tile floors put down in. He started the project within a few days and was very efficient and meticulous about getting the trim right to match the existing. Very pleased with his work and would definitely hire him again for any project .

I wanted a railing on my front stairs for safety, but my stairs aren't "standard" rise and run, so I needed custom work. Messenger Iron came and measured my stairs, asked what I wanted, and made me EXACTLY what I wanted, in the color I picked, at an incrediably reasonable price. The railing is to my very high and perfectionist standards, was installed quickly and cleanly. My railing is clean, simple, elegant and sturdy - just what I wanted. I am thrilled with Devin's work and can not recommend him highly enough. He communicated well all along the process and was always on time.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
