I had a frozen water line and Zak responded to my plea for help thru Thumbtack. In the meantime, it was determined that the blockage was on the city side of the line, so PWSA is taking care of it. But Zak was so attentive and concerned in his reply to me. He even called me back the next day to check on the status of my water problem. I have rental property and will use Zak for all of my railing and welding needs - along with thawing frozen pipes! It is so hard to find skilled specialists - so to find one who is friendly, attentive and available! I look forward to working with him in the near future! Thanks Thumbtack Thanks Zak!

It's been a year, and our new sidewalk, front porch repair, newly refinished iron railing, and retaining wall are all holding up nicely. Concrete work is just expensive, but the price tag here was better than what most others quoted. We will likely hire Rob again soon for more work.

Bill and his guys are awesome! They were able to complete challenging interior and exterior work on a seventy-five year old house in Perry Hilltop. It was done in a few days and at a very fair price. Bill is a man of his word and his crew did a few extra things that needed done even thought they were not on the punch list! Buchanan are my "go to" contractors. Brian, Home/Rental Property Owner

Requested a ballpark figure to repair the stairs and railing used to access my basement. Mr. Kirby responded quickly and with an almost perfect approximation of the final material and labor costs. Once he scoped out the project and talked with me about the specifications, I gave him the go-ahead to begin the work. The price, timeframe, and quality of craftsmanship were all to my satisfaction. Mr. Kirby is an excellent carpenter who does good work. I support Mr. Kirby's business by letting others know of the positive experience I had when I hired him to do this job.

    Adam did countless projects for me: crown moulding throughout house; chair rail throughout house; framed windows; quarter round on baseboard throughout house; deck steps; garbage enclosure; tile work; drywall work; etc. At my mom's house, he built new bay window panels; stair railings, hung doors, etc. Every single project he did was outstanding. I have very high standards and Adam exceeded them every time. Moreover, he left the place extremely clean and is very professional and nice.

    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 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.

    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.
