Jim was able to work for me within two days of talking to him. He installed my closet lights and cleaned up after himself. Several days later I had him back to install extra handrails for my stairs. Great worker and nice person! I wouldn’t hesitate to have him back.

Pat took out our old basement staircase and built a new one. He gave us a quote on Wednesday and completed the work on Friday. Our space was limited since we have an older house. So, he custom built the stairs on site. The stairs are very sturdy and look great.

We had our fence installed late last summer and went with this company because their product looked good, they were very reasonably priced and they actually listened to what we wanted vs trying to up sell on various other products. The fence was installed in a day and the installation process went great and everything was cleaned up well. Our fence is low to the ground which was important to us because we have 2 small dogs and didn’t want them to be able to get out under the bottom. Waited a year to do our review to see how everything settled. Had a couple minor issues with the gate- which can be expected with a wooden fence. Company was very prompt and came out to inspect the issues on the first day I was available and it was fixed 2 days later- free of charge. Everything is working great!! I would highly recommend them for the quality of their work, their professionalism, and just our overall experience and satisfaction with their product and service. Thanks guys!!

RNA Construction went above and beyond while replacing 2 exterior doors at my home. They were on time at 8:30 A.M. and pleasant, cleaned up after themselves and most importantly, they did an excellent job at a very reasonable rate! I recommend them highly and will not hesitate to use them again when I need other things done around my home.

Gary & Larry with GM Home Service were contracted to install a 650 ft split rail perimeter fence. The installation was professional, timely, and the invoice was right on budget. I am happy I found them - they are hard-working, competent contractors. Based on the great job they did, I have them scheduled to do more work for me this spring.

Dave did an excellent job installing marble and porcelain flooring in our home. He gave us a very reasonable estimate and the final cost did not vary from that estimate. The work was quite good and was performed in a timely manner. Dave was very polite, friendly and professional. His years of experience, pride and work ethics were clearly demonstrated while working for us. We will definately consider hiring him for any future projects.

Mr. Hunter made two stairway railings, an arch for flowering vines and an entrance gate to our property. His work was beautiful, artistic and exactly what we designed for the spaces. He was extremely prompt and professional. My husband ordered a hand-crafted gift later for my birthday and it was wonderful! Best birthday gift, ever - a true treasure! We intend to hire this artist in the future for other properties/projects.

The Sullivan brothers were courteous and professional. They installed a railing on my balcony and did a fine job. I would certainly 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
