A&C Contractors removed my old fence and footings quickly and neatly, then set new footings and built me a beautiful new fence. They confirmed the design with me in the beginning and checked during the progress to ensure my happiness with the quality and design. When I had questions or additional requests, they accommodated them without any issue and were exceptionally professional. The team was experienced, detailed and absolutely wonderful. They will be my go to team for all my further home projects and renovations! They couldn't be more helpful, honest, talented and professional.

Logan updated porch posts and railings at my home. He was very pleasant to work with and a good communicator. I'm very happy with the results of his carpentry work.

The contractor did not have a portfolio of past similar projects nor did he provide references I could contact. We finally came to an agreement as to how he would build my fence. His company contract was rather vague so I wrote out a more detailed one that he and I signed. It listed the specific points about the project that I felt were important, i.e. type of wood to use, heights, design, cleanup, etc. The contractor and crew were very cooperative during the construction. Whenever there were questions about how I wanted things to be done, we referred to my contract. I needed to leave town on the last day of their work. Since the work had gone well up to that point, I paid the contractor off and left him to finish up his work. When I returned a week later I was surprised to see that several of the details noted in my contract had not been completed. It has been three weeks since then and he has not returned to complete the small details nor to do a final review of his project. I can only guess that he felt rushed to complete my project and has been too busy to follow up. I will complete the final detail work myself. I have noticed that some of the fence wood has loosened up due to inadequate nailing. This was obviously done to reduce construction expense on the contractor's end. I have gone back and reinforced the wood with heavier screws. The fence is sturdier now. I would rate this contractor as a "good" builder, just not a "master" builder, due to the lack of detail work and lack of followup on the contract.

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!

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.

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 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.
