Extremely pleased with the remodel of our bathroom. Mike went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. He was punctual, polite, personable and very clean while working. He did a fantastic job tiling, installing our tub door, toilet and vanity. We will definitely hire him for future projects.

Bob, did a good job. His workers were courtious and friendly. He showed up when he said he would. Trex deck and railing looks great. My only concern would be using untreated wood on the framing of the railing. Bob assured me that painting the railing was just as good. I am not sure.

I had hired another Thumbtack "carpenter" to build me a set of stairs for my home. The City of Knoxville Building Inspector REJECTED my steps TWICE. I knew the man I hired could not do the job"up to code" I again went with Thumbtack,,, to find someone who could build me 6 stringer wood steps that would pass code,,,and look good! Mr Seay answered my prayers,,,and assured me that they would pass. And you know what,,,they did!! And they look good. I've got the best looking,,built to last many,many years,,,front porch steps on the block! For sure,,,if you need steps,,in the city of Knoxville,,,get him first. And save yourself the expense and humiliation of having to do it over. And over. He also has experience with other areas of home repair/improvement that I will be using in the near future,,,without the worry of having to redo it. So happy to have done business with him and his workers.

Repaired disintegrating basement bricks; repaired and re-finished damaged wood floor and antique dresser; installed beams in basement; re-finished various pieces of furniture; installed kitchen faucet; repaired loose bannister railings, did some other odd jobs. Arthur is that rare professional handyman who is totally reliable; fairly priced; pro-active in communications; honest; punctual; skilled -- and a really nice guy. If he can't handle a job, he'll tell you. He listens to your input and works out great solutions. He did a particularly good job re-finishing our damaged wood floor and re-touching furniture. But he does everything well. Very highly recommend.

Gary did some wainscoting and trim work in our new home. He spent a lot of time/effort to find the matching wood trim then, did an excellent job installing it. It matches exactly and added a great deal to our home. Can't recommend him enough!

Brent and his team did a remodeling job for us when we moved to Morganton. They basically gutted the entire kitchen except for appliances and updated cabinets, installed granite, backsplash, lighting and electrical, and created an open floor plan by taking a wall out. They also installed hardwood flooring in the kitchen and living room and updated a set of stairs in the entryway. Brent's team also enclosed the carport into a garage which turned out fantastic as well. To finish the job, they painted the exterior of the house to give it a final update from the original 1970 style. The team was on time and professional and went above and beyond our expectations. Brent managed the project within budget, our only overages were for a few of our last-minute change requests, of which they were accommodating and understanding. Overall a great experience and would definitely recommend Trumade for any job big or small.

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.
