Cruz is by far the best guy we have found for our rat problem!! He is punctual, friendly, honest, dedicated very professional, etc. He saved our home and our sanity!! We are grateful he made time on a SUNDAY to make sure our kids live in a pest-free home. He was very thorough with our home. Wouldn't consider anyone else for this important task. After hiring him for pest control, we found out he does fencing, deck, electrical and all handyman type of work. He will definitely be called for our next home "problem."

I hired Matthew to build a redwood fence and sand/stain my rear deck. He did an excellent job. Tight cuts on all corners, close attention to all detail. And he is a really nice guy. Was flexible in scheduling and worked really quickly. I will be using Matthew for many future projects.

Milko did a fantastic job on painting the interior of our house. He provided everything that we needed, worked very carefully and efficiently got the job done in only a days. He was pleasant, responsive, on time, and very reliable - even coming back after a few weeks to do any follow on touch ups that we requested. I’d highly recommend for any paint work and consider for other jobs as well!

I hired Jasper from My Apartment Is Better Than Yours. I think they did a terrific job at a very reasonable price. I'm really pleased that I decided to go with them. I had a number of unusual carpentry tasks to complete when I moved to my new place. The windows were old and the wood was irregular and moldy, so the wood around the antique glass panels needed to be replaced. I was told those windows hadn't been opened in 40 years, but now they work perfectly and you'd never know the wood wasn't original. Also, several doorways lacked doors when I moved in, and were unusual rounded shapes cut into the stucco without doorframes. Jasper was able to make me custom doors with antique iron-wrought handles, and they look awesome. I also needed threshholds worked on, cabinets put up, new benches made for my roof deck, a custom projector and screen put in, antique chandeliers installed, a lock repaired... and I'm probably forgetting one or two things. They are in the process of putting the finishing touches on my humidor (they had to build me custom legs for it), and it's going to look spectacular. Anyway, they knocked it all out of the park. They were prompt and clean and didn't cause much of a disturbance despite all the work they were doing. They'll be my go-to for anything I need done in the future. I definitely recommend them.

I had a great experience using Victor to clear coat my deck and the wood exterior of my house. Aside from doing a great job on the project at a fair price, Victor was very responsive throughout the process and was proactive in keeping me up to date on the progress (sending me photos during the workdays of the job). I'd gladly use him again on my next painting project!

Chris did an absolutely tremendous job on our front and back Ipe decks. We had made the bad mistake of having them stained a few years back with a dark heavy stain, which was starting to flake off. Chris painstakingly sanded the existing stain off and finished the decks with Ipe Oil. They now look "like a piece of furniture". He was extremely punctual, trustworthy, a delight to work with. Could not recommend him more.

Juan and his assistant installed a security grill which was complicated by the fact that my wood door needed to be cut and re-hung to open inwards. I was thrilled, first off, that Juan was willing to do the job, since a couple other people I spoke with wanted me to buy a new door. Juan responded very quickly, answered all my questions, and was very professional and clear with his quote. His price was extremely fair, a bargain really, and he was able to accommodate my schedule and stay in touch via email. They worked very cleanly, covering the deck and floors, and tenting off the kitchen with taped plastic. The work went very quickly and smoothly. Juan needed to tweak a few things in order to make everything fit, so the finished product has some tiny flaws. Aesthetically and functionally, though, the doors are exactly what I wanted and expected for my slightly funky older home. I would definitely hire him again.

Our deck hasn't been maintained since we moved in a couple years ago and likely before that. JD & Son's Painting washed it, made stain recommendations, and painted it to make it look great again. They took great care to not get any paint on any of my property while doing so which was a challenge as this is a 2nd story deck.

I hired Renew Crew to power wash our patio, restrain our deck, and paint our exterior siding. They did and amazing job and were very responsive and professional. We just moved into a 200 year old walk up and the exterior was quite dirty. The Crew cleaned all exterior surfaces including our gutters, siding, sidewalk and brick patio, driveway and two small decks. Amazing results and clean beyond expectations. The result is that we didn't have to Paint the entire house! The cleanup was good enough to where Renew Crew will only paint one side and the rest is in good shape. Would definitely hire again!

This was a relatively simple deck repair/replacement job, but Jesse was great to work with - on time, efficient, and came in with the most reasonable and accurate estimate. When the guys did the work, the rain started to get in their way but they finished as planned and the deck looks great. It's been a long time since I had a contractor that finished on time, on budget, and cleaned everything up before they left. Even for small jobs, this has been a problem for me recently. So I am very impressed and pleased with Bay Wide - thanks Jesse! I will definitely use you guys again.

I had a great experience working with Eddie building a 250 SF deck in my backyard. I can't say enough positive things about him. His bid was very competitive yet workmanship was of the highest quality, he managed to be very responsive despite handling other jobs and he demonstrated deep expertise in his craft. I would hire him again in a heart beat and would recommend him to my friends. He finished the project on budget, on time and lets and left the job area clean after he finished.

Alex was great! We hired him to do the floor tiles in our bathroom. When that went great, he said he could do the backsplash in our kitchen. Both jobs were timely and turned out super. Next we needed help with the stairs for our back deck. Alex took on the job and also finished building out the deck, stairs and railing. He delivered on time and within budget -- two things that aren't easy to come by. We highly recommend working with Alex.

Eduardo was fantastic! He was on time, totally professional and efficient. He created a small deck and cover for my outdoor tub... worked around an odd shaped deck, created a gorgeous cover that was much better than the one I had in mind. He was friendly to have around, and I will definitely be hiring him again!

Edgar and his crew did a great job painting several rooms in our house and touching up dings in other places. They were able to accommodate our schedule and worked the weekend to do the job. His quote was reasonable and the paint results are great. The crew cleaned up nicely too. I'd recommend Baran Painting if you want good value and quality.

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.
