Front porch concrete steps and siding done. Started when he said. 90% of the work was finished the same day. Finished the day later. He worked in the rain and supplies were delivered before the job started. Excellent job, professional workers.

Kent did an excellent job installing new drop-down attic stairs and repairing an electrical outlet. I would hire him again at the drop of a hat. He worked quickly and efficiently and cleaned up afterwards. He was knowledgable and personable, and answered questions about other jobs I'm thinking about getting done. He gave me advice on what he thought I could accomplish myself (and how) and what aspects of projects he could help out with. Kent is great to work with!

when we posted on this site the first person to respond was Mr. Sandercott of Jam Restorations. he prompt response to our add was very impressive. when David came to our home he was very attentive to what we were trying to achieve and what we wanted as the end finished product. keeping in mind that we had (3) prior contractors come out and never even gave us a call back after leaving. David not only returned our call after leaving but had a quote for us the same day WOW.. Needless to say we signed our contract with Jam Restorations the following day. clear wording and easy to follow contract. David provided a start and finish date for us off we went. we hired Jam restorations to do the following work for us, trim (11) windows, (5) doors entire second and third floor as well as our stair case, (3) closets in and out as well as switching out and rehanging the (5) doors. David and his company not only met our expectations but exceeded them so much that we actually asked him to return to complete our first floor living quarters. David and his employees were nothing but professional and considerate of our time table and work schedule. I have had several neighbors come into my home to see his work and they were just as equally impressed as we were. we would Highly recommend him to others, a contractor who answers all of his calls and or gets back to your calls within 5 minutes... actively using jam restoration for other carpentry finishing work in my home. Thank You Mr. Sandercott for your excellent work, detail to finish and professionalism.

Vince and company were lifesavers! We needed our crumbling porch stairs replaced and Dimensions came through for us, especially when they found we had no footings under the old stairs! It meant extra work and inspections and Vince took care of it all. I can't thank him enough for his perseverance in completing the job in a thoroughly professional manner. A big thanks also goes to Patti who kept me in the loop the whole time. Her communications allowed me to have an understanding of where they were in the process at any given time and gave me much needed peace of mind. I would recommend Dimensions Construction Services to anyone for their next project.

We had an excellent experience with Jim and his team. We pulled out old pavers to create a beautiful patio and seat wall with built in fireplace and custom lighting. He also matched new railing for the front porch. He was extremely professional, reliable and very creative. I recommend this company highly and intend to use them again for future projects.

I hired Chris Nevins to fix a broken stair on my stair case. After taking a look at the damage, we decided to go ahead and replace all the stairs with hardwood. Chris was extremely professional and did an incredible job. Not only was the work top notch, but Chris was super friendly, prompt, and a pleasure to work with. He really went above and beyond, and I am so stoked with the results. I look forward to working with Chris again in the future!

Alex and AP Carpentry were outstanding! I got hooked up with AP carpentry through thumbtack to do the siding on my garage and they exceeded my expectations. First and foremost, Alex was responsive and timely in his communication. He called and texted back, showed up on time, and finished the job when he said he would. Secondly, they went out of their way to do things over and above. One example; My garage has a TV mount, speakers, and some lighting hanging on the outside and they took that into consideration and put in special pieces I could remount to once they were done. I didn't know it was an option, but I didn't have to know, they knew what was right and make it great. Lastly, while I saw they were doing the metal trim around the garage windows I asked them if they could fix a window on the house that had got dinged up. They remembered to take care of it even after a quick passing conversation and the cost was minimal. I would recommend AP carpentry to anyone who needs siding, roofing, etc. Their communication, skills/knowledge, and price make them a GREAT contractor to know.

Carlos reinstalled and updated the bannisters, handrails, and balusters on our stairs. He also did the quarter round molding around our kitchen. He did a great job!! We were very pleased with his work and his professionalism. He is also a very friendly guy and was helpful with picking out the supplies we needed for the project. We would definitely hire him again and would highly recommend him to our friends and family!

We had our main deck completely demolished and rebuilt; we had a second-story deck demolished, a door removed and replaced with drywall; we had a smaller lower level deck rebuilt; we had the slope of a curved bridge modified and refinished. I highly recommend working with Rufino Labra and Labra Design + Build. The most important aspect of our project was demolishing our aging cedar deck overlooking a ravine, adding 120 square feet to it, and adding deck lighting which we had never had. We also needed an unused (except by the raccoons) smaller deck area demolished, the door removed and replaced with drywall. Additionally, we had a curved bridge over a gully leading to our entrance on which we wanted the slope modified to make the tie-in to the landing gentler. Initially we were looking at Trex or Azec (both "faux" wood) for the deck but after some investigation discovered cumaru, a Brazilian hardwood similar to ipe. Rufino was the only contractor we contacted to investigate this possibility, and offered to do the deck in the cumaru for the price of Azec, and included the lighting package at no additional charge. We were also initially considering glass railing panels, but knowing that we live in a wooded area and feed the local birds, Rufino mentioned that the birds might fly into the glass and get hurt or killed, so he gave us the option of stainless steel cable, and we are so glad we opted for that! The finished deck is spectacular! The woodworking detail is amazing. Rufino also offered to install soffit lights at no charge because he knew we would love them. We do! Rufino and his crew showed up every day on time, they worked efficiently and with enormous attention to detail. He has a degree in architecture from Lawrence Tech, so in addition to being an incredibly skilled craftsman he is also artistic and talented. He was in constant communication on any changes or issues (they found carpenter ants had chewed up a lot of the old deck and advised us to call an exterminator -- we did!). They all really went above and beyond, they finished within the time Rufino had estimated despite some rainy days, and we are enormously pleased with the results. We will definitely work with Labra Design + Build in the future.

Jac was easy to work with, sent information over timely, was professional, clean, and courteous. He completed our stair railing and did so in a way that was cost effective to us. We would use him again for future projects.

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.
