Latasha Hill says, "My experience with Krasiva was good in the beginning but has now gone downhill. Perry came to my house back in November 2020 and basically "sold" me on getting two new windows. I went ahead and placed the order. My initial install was done February 26th. The installers were professional and cleaned up after themselves. One of the installers showed me a picture he took with his cell phone of a hairline fracture he discovered on one of the windows. He could've pretended to not see it but I felt that spoke to the integrity of the company. The installer told me that he would put in an order for a replacement window. I called Krasiva to confirm and the replacement was ordered. I followed up 2 weeks after that and the woman who answered told me they estimated my replacement to arrive the week of April 26th. To my surprise, I got a call from Krasiva last week telling me my replacement window arrived. That's 3 weeks earlier than estimated! I was so excited! The guy asked if they could install it that weekend, but I had a dentist appointment. So, I scheduled the installation for the following weekend (today). The guy told me the installers would arrive between 8 - 8:30 AM. I woke up early this morning. I cleaned up the area where the window would be installed, put down tarp on the floor. I was ready! When 8:30 came around and no one showed up, I tried to call Krasiva but guess what? They're closed on weekends!! So, who do I speak with to find out if the installers are still coming? While on the phone with my mom, I get a voicemail. I listened to it and couldn't believe what I was hearing. The installer, Randall, said he couldn't find my window and left his personal cell number. I immediately called Randall back. He answered and explained that he's been in the warehouse for over an hour searching for my window but can't find it. He says that happens sometimes when the paperwork guy gets the orders mixed up. He then tells me he doesn't believe my window was ever delivered. WHAT!! I asked Randall if he had a phone number for a manager at Krasiva to get it resolved. He tells me "no" and that he has the same office number, which is closed, so I'll have to wait until Monday. So, I'm not getting my replacement window today and there's no one I can speak to, not even Perry - the salesman, to find out who dropped the ball. What I also don't understand is why the installer can't contact ANYONE at Krasiva, especially on a Saturday. And why would you have installers work on a day that the business is closed? Doesn't make any sense, but I do know they wasted my time. I have other windows that need to be replaced but I wanted to test my experience out with this company installing only two windows to determine if I will hire them again. I think not.UPDATE: 4/22/21Had my replacement window installed last Friday. I also received an unexpected visit from the President of the company. Greg was apologetic, genuine and sincere. He's passionate about the business, his employees and the customers they service. That left a lasting impression on me. The installers were very polite and professional. They even brought in a vacuum to clean up the area where they installed the window. When they finished you couldn't even tell they had been in house. I would recommend Krasiva and will be using their services again."See more

What is a framing contractor?

A framing contractor is an expert at creating a building’s frame, which is a vital component. It gives your building shape and structure. And a strong frame can help ensure the building’s structural integrity. In order for a major construction project to move forward, the framing must be completed.

How do I hire a framer?

First, search for top-rated framers near you on Thumbtack. Then, do the following:

  • Read their profiles and customer reviews.
  • Look at photos of past construction projects they’ve worked on.
  • Check to see if they are properly licensed and certified in your state.
  • Reach out to your top three framers and ask for cost estimates. 

After you’ve completed this research, hire a framer you believe offers fair pricing for high-quality work. Feel free to ask them a few questions before you make your decision. For example, you can ask about their process, their references, the time it takes to complete your project and more.

What type of wood is used in framing a house?

You have a few options when it comes to wood for your frame, including dimensional and engineered lumber. When it comes to wood species, you could opt for:

  • Douglas fir
  • Oak
  • Pine
  • Red cedar
  • Spruce

Ask framing contractors near you what type of lumber they recommend for your house and budget.

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.

How do you find a good carpenter?

To find a good carpenter near you, do the following:

  • Use Thumbtack to find a list of carpenters in your area.
  • Filter the list by selecting a specific carpentry service, such as general carpentry or cabinetry. 
  • Identify carpenters who have high ratings.
  • View the carpenters’ profiles and learn more about their specialties. 
  • Read their customer reviews and look at photos of their past work.

After you get a good sense of their quality of work, make sure the carpenter has the necessary credentials in your state. Then, request several cost estimates for your project(s).

What does a finish carpenter charge per hour?

On average, finish carpenters charge $60 per hour. However, this hourly rate will vary depending on where you live, the scope of the project and other factors. For a more accurate estimate, ask for price quotes from at least three finish carpenters in your area.
