Conn rebuilt a Pergola (which is basically a massive trellis) underneath several hundred pounds of intertwined vines. The result is beautiful (see pictures below). Never in my homeowner life have I seen a complex construction project succeed all three dimensions: on time, on budget and high quality. Conn took our original idea and found ways to make it look even better. He came up with an accurate budget estimate within days. And then built it on time and without needing any oversight from me at all. He kept us apprised of progress on a daily basis. Everyone involved (my wife, painters, etc) was amazed that he kept our vines in tack and constructed such a beautiful Pergola so quickly. Conn was creative, efficient, honest and a joy to work with. I would recommend him over and over again.

I have two Pergolas and three trellis structures in my backyard that were bare redwood and needed painting. Carlos immediately came out and gave me a reasonable estimate using quality paint. The work was completed ahead of schedule and the result was exceptional! True quality workmanship along with honest integrity in all aspects! I highly recommend Carlos for all your painting needs. Me being a perfectionist can say I was extremely impressed. Thank you!!

HomeStead provided a fast quote on our open-lattice Pergola. We made some changes at the last minute and they took those in stride and completed the job early. Anthony did a great job communicating the schedule and kept the project on track. Great work and I would recommend them for any project.

I worked with Dave and his team in transforming our backyard from a wasteland to an awesome outdoor living space. He provided trees, lawn, irrigation, pavers, a beautiful custom built wooden arbor with park bench, fence lattice, crushed granite hardscape and jasmine plants. Dave does not disappear from a project and manages it with very tight communication/updates throughout. His landscape installation leads are very nice and take a lot of pride in their work. It was a pleasure and in the end we feel like we got everything we wanted at a fair and competitive price. Two thumbs up!

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.
