I hired Galveston Construction to remove both my neighbors' 6' privacy fences and my own 4' corral fence and replace them with one 6' pine privacy fence. They pulled out all of the old posts planted in concrete. They filled in all of the holes and erected a new fence using the latest construction tricks that I would have never thought of. They implimented a 2x6 Rot Board at the base with a 2x4 back creating a ledge to nail the slats into. The gates were framed in steel which he welded together, and included supports for additional strength. In addition to using only top grade lumber, the gate hardware is heavy duty and locks easily when closed. He custom fashioned the fence with great carpentry work around a few trees that were growing right on my property line. He was very careful to make sure that the neighbors were happy with the new construction. He even went as far as repairing the gate on the next door neighbor's fence that had been hanging in disrepair for years. What I got from Stan was a beautiful fence that will remain standing for years and years. Will I hire him again? I certainly will. His bid was his word. And written on a signed contract. No add-ons, no additional charges, no hassles, no bull shit. I never had a question as to what he was going to do at any time. A real pro.

I can’t say enough good things about Jose with PersonaServ. I had a few bids on the project and he was the lowest, which I was worried would also be the cheapest in quality (it wasn’t!). Jose came out to walk through the project with me and provided a more accurate quote based on the additional work I asked for. We worked out a start date and he was there every step of the way to show me the progress and confirm the features I wanted. He was also ready with recommendations when I was unsure about how to work out a detail or two. I had prior approval for my fence with my HOA, but they left me with a few stipulations that Jose was able to follow to the letter. In total, Jose built me 3 different sized fences, and 3 custom gates. He used 3-rails, 80lbs. of concrete in the posts, and added rot boards along the bottom. He also removed my existing wrought iron fence, along with the heavily attached vines, and was able to custom cut and re-use part of the iron fence to make a new custom-sized gate. I felt like Jose went out of his way to complete the job 100%. He made special trips to the store to get the hardware I asked for. I also liked how he and his crew were careful to bag the dirt from the new posts and not leave it lying around on my grass. Very courteous. They were also very careful not to damage underground pipes and cables. I’m very satisfied with their work and they still kept everything within budget and on-time.

Billy Belknap and his crew did a fantastic job adding slate to my front walkway, back patio and installed porcelain tile on the wall under the bar in the kitchen. They also did some additional work for me. They add chair railing and board paneling to the foyer and home office areas. These guys turned my imagination into reality, and I will definitely recommend and hire Billy Belknap and his crew again. Great Job!

Al completely remodeled our guest bathroom, did 2600 square feet if tile and travertine floor, a new stone fireplace, new baseboards and quarter round, new fence and gates, and painted our garage. He stood by all his work and even corrected issues from other contractors including leveling my kitchen floor and fixing multiple ceiling fans. He was so good I recommended him to many of my customers who have all been equally pleased.

I hired Earnest to move very heavy exercise equipment from my garage to an upstairs room. He and his buddy did a fantastic job. They covered the wooden stairs and rails to protect them and were very careful not to hit walls. I will definitely be calling on Earnest again! Very professional and caring business!

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.
