Barnie did a phenomenal job. We had 3 extra large pendant lights we purchased in antique store for him to install over our kitchen peninsula. Our 14 feet ceiling and the wide counter made the job hard to maneuver but he did the job in record time and superior quality. A true professional that we will be calling on for all our handyman needs.

I had an existing screened in porch and wanted to double the size of the porch. I wanted the new addition to match the existing porch so it would not look like an afterthought. Rolando listened carefully to what I was trying to achieve. He did an excellent job of matching the new material with the existing building material. He also completed this project for a fair price. It is obvious that his employees take pride in their work. I would highly recommend this company if you want an excellent job done at a competitive/fair price.

Miguel built our roof trusses and decked the roof, sheathed and weather proofed the house, put on siding, and built our back porch. The work he did was excellent. He was always on time and easy to communicate with- he answered calls and texts immediately. Prices were fair. I highly recommend Miguel!

I hired Steel City Woodworks to complete several repair items, including the replacement and addition of wooden spindles on the railing on my wraparound porch, replacement of rotten soffits, installation of new attic fan, and replacement of two interior doors. The work was completed in a very prompt and professional manner, and at a reasonable price. Shawn is also very good at communicating timelines and any changes in scheduling. I will definitely hire him for additional projects and I highly recommend him and his company to anyone requiring woodworking installation or repairs.

They were great! Jeremy and his men were very professional, on time and reliable. I first hired them to paint 3 rooms in my house. They were so reasonable and did such a great job, I called them back to resurface my front porch. Again- they did a great job. Will recommend they to every one.

Thanks to Double Oak we now have a very nice back porch for the games this year. They did a great job on the covered roof and payed good attention to detail. Built it exactly how the wife and I wanted it. Only complaint and the only reason why I am not giving them a full five stars is because they had a few issues with some guys showing up on time. Wish I could give them four and a half stars. The main contractor was always on time but for the most part they were awesome. Looking forward to them finishing my basement next summer.

I went on Thumbtack two evenings ago to find someone to demo and repair our exterior porch awning. It had been improperly installed by previous owner and had sustained water damage. C & L was the first to get back with me. They promptly scheduled a free estimate. When they came out, they seemed knowledgeable about their work and were able to text me two optional estimates in 20 minutes. They quickly scheduled a repair date for the following day. I met them at the store to purchase materials needed. They completed the job very quickly and very professionally. I was very impressed with their work from all of their team members. They took time to work on the details. After their work, they left a clean yard and porch. I literally didn’t have to do anything except meet them to purchase materials. I ran errands the rest of the day and came home to a beautiful front porch. I will reach out to them directly first for my next home project. I highly recommend them!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Who is a carpenter and what do they do?

Carpenters are skilled craftsmen who build things out of wood. Depending on what the carpenter builds, they may be referred to by various names. A framer is a carpenter who puts up the framing on a house. A trim or finish carpenter installs the finishing touches of prefabricated or custom trim and detail work once a house has been built and the walls are up. A furniture maker or woodworker builds furniture — such as tables, beds and dressers — out of wood. A cabinetmaker is a carpenter who builds custom and semi-custom wood cabinets. If you’re having a home built or remodeled, your general contractor will either provide or subcontract the carpentry work for the framing, cabinets and trim. You can hire a carpenter directly to update the trim in your home, build you a piece of custom furniture, or repair or replace your wood cabinets.

Do carpenters build houses?

Carpenters are trained to work with wood. That means that any part of your home that is built of wood is very likely to involve a carpenter. Framing carpenters will put up the wood that makes up the bones of your home. If you’re having a wood floor installed, it may be done by a carpenter — although being a carpenter is not a requirement to install flooring. Trim, baseboards, wainscoting and any other detail work is typically installed by a finish carpenter. The wood boxes of custom cabinets will be built and installed by a carpenter.

Although all of these components in your new or remodeled home are built by carpenters who specialize in building things with wood, a general contractor typically oversees construction of the entire house. If the general contractor is also a carpenter skilled in all these areas, they may well construct your entire home. More often, the general contractor subcontracts out the various building stages to different individuals, including carpenters.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
