Prompt response, arrived exactly when he said he would. Very nice man and very conscientious about his work. He fixed a leak under my bathroom sink and also did a couple of other bathroom projects. He also replaced the front part of my shed door and put a metal piece (flashing) on the roof extension of my shed. His charge was reasonable and I am glad I hired him. I may use him again sometime.

Logan is fantastic! We needed someone to make a custom baby gate for our staircase. Logan came to us with creative cost effective solutions, was professional, on time, and had excellent communication. We would absolutely use Logan again in the future, for work around our house.

I'm in the middle of a whole house remodel of my home. When we removed the existing shower, we discovered rotten sub flooring. I reached out to Vince Dolen and he responded quickly. He was at the house looking at the issues within a couple of hours. He arrived promptly, at the agreed upon time and completed the work quickly. Vince even anticipated the needs of my plumber. His rates are reasonable. The day after Vince completed the work, the plumber sang his praises , "that contractor was really good his framing for the tub and the tub rail are perfect!" I highly recommend Vince and will call on him for any other needs that arise. Nicely done Vince. Thank you!

Brett was able to pull off an amazing job on very short notice for us. We are selling our house and needed to replace all the carpet in the house. He suggested a custom design for our stairs that really added a unique and elegant look. Even our agent was very impressed and thought it was a great addition! Brett is not only very talented but also a very down to earth, kind man. I can't wait to get the keys to our new house so we can have Brett come work his magic!! Highly recommended!!

Chad and his crew are great!!! We recently had a master bathroom remodel. The job was done on time and on budget. They were prompt, courteous and cleaned up each day. We have also had them build a Trex deck and glass railing in our backyard. It is really beautiful. We would recommend Chad and Start to Finish Construction to anyone. Their service was superb.

We hired Vitaliy to complete an extensive remodel including gutting kitchen and cabinets, all carpet flooring, painting whole house, new doors and trim whole house, renovating hardwood floors, custom stair handrail, extensive drywall and electrical. The selection of Superior Built to remodel our home was one of the best decisions we ever made about our renovation. The team and others you brought into the project all performed with professionalism, courtesy and made the remodeling experience more pleasant than we ever thought it could be. We all know that remodeling a home, especially a full kitchen; can put a strain on the family and contractor. The experience we had with Superior Built stands out from other contractors due to: • A level of honesty that is top in the business • Willingness to respond to concerns and meet expectations • Attention and maintaining a compressed schedule • Managing all subcontractors without issues coming to us • Exceptional level of quality on all aspects of work, several times caught issues that others had overseen • A willingness to let us know what ideas we shared were worth embracing and guiding to great solutions when they weren’t • Attention to detail that others might have missed • A dedication to complete tasks after the project even after the checks were cashed Regards, Rick & Kelli

Greg Simons has provided excellent quality service and product on a number of projects. As an architect working in Portland, I have involved Greg on projects with very specific requirements. On a custom built staircase, Greg utilized parts made on a CNC mill to my exact specification, and installed in a short 3 day period. The quality was exact and the schedule and install time both came in below budget. For a high end restaurant nearing completion, Greg was able to offer assistance to complete a long list of items that had been missed in the General Contractor’s bid. His willingness to work with the client at a crucial time and to complete items necessary for opening was immensely helpful. I have also had Greg fabricate two separate custom millwork projects. I enthusiastically recommend Greg’s product quality and service on high-end woodworking projects.

We had stairs added to our deck for access to the backyard and dog area. Steve was really easy to work with. He sat down with us and listened to what we wanted to have done. He put together a plan and followed through. 1st Choice did a great job and we are really happy with the end result. We highly recommend 1st Choice and they will be doing a few more projects for us in the future.

Avos wrought Iron did all our iron work on a 6000 sq.ft custom house we built last year. They did both interior and exterior custom railings with a combined footage of over 200 feet. They did a good job of getting their work done on schedule, while producing a quality product. They were easy to work with and II would recommend them to anyone.

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.
