Jack is an absolute must hire. He was open to doing a wide variety of jobs and did all of them well. He spent the day fixing a split oak stair tread, patching drywall, changing out shower heads and faucet knobs, moved some cabinets up so my new washer would fit underneath, fixed screws backing out of cabinet doors, mounted a mirror and towel rack...pretty much all those lingering odds and ends. Jack was on time, very personable, cleans up after himself, and absolutely someone I trust. Been looking for someone like Jack for years. Give him a try, you'll be glad you did!

I hired JL Masonry to repair the front stairs of my house. Jon was prompt, professional and neat. He replaced one of the limestone treads and the bluestone on the landing. He also repointed some of the brick and repaired the walkway at no extra charge! I would definitely recommend him for your next masonry job.

I hired Tim to help put all the finishing touches on a house I am renovating. I have a deadline to get the home on the market, and Tim quoted me a decent price, within my budget and his work is excellent. The job consisted of installing a few interior doors, windows, and a few stair cases, a small deck and some railings. He also did a lot of drywall work and boxed in some electrical, gas and water lines for me. I am very happy with his attention to detail, and how he was able to figure out ways to get the job done right and bring everything together. He and Eric are very nice people and I will be certainly hiring them again for my next project.

They did an incredible job repairing the water damaged walls in our basement from our water heater that burst. They were attentive to our needs and did a flawless job on the wall repairs. Kimberly even went above and beyond to say they would deal with my insurance company. I would definitely use Rickman Construction again.

Contacted Arthur about replacing a tub with a shower system. From the start he was great, suggesting things to do that would save on the budget. He was really good working around supplier issues and making sure I was in the loop the whole way. I ended up having him also replace porch stairs that were past their prime and install a storm door as well. Arthur did a great job with a the projects and I would definitely contact him in the future for other jobs.

A welding company put me in touch with Derek when I called about railings for my stairs - the first set were for concrete steps out front, he measured, provided a sketch, fabricated and installed - they are great. I called Derek again and he designed and fabricated a railing for a set of stairs to the basement - they look great too.

Mike has done at least 1/2 dozen jobs at my home. Building a new set of outside stairs and railings, tile and grout work in the bathroom, installation of a new storm door, along with a finished bannister inside were all done professionally and promptly with complete satisfaction. The tasks were reasonably priced and I would not hesitate to call on Mike again. He has all the tools and ability to do exceptional work.

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.
