Tom built a portable deck project for me and my father, and took it upon himself to make every stage, from planning to installation, an absolute perfect example of what good carpentry is! He designed an ingenious hinging system to make the deck easier to move, and even came to my home to help me put it together! I would highly recommend Tom for any carpentry work, as the experience he provided me was professional, and the finished product he delivered was exceptional!

Nima is truly a A+ professional and did an amazing job installing a large ceiling fan onto a 12ft ceiling. He also installed some recessed lighting, dimmer, outlets. Nima is punctual and really went out of his way to make sure everything was done to my liking. I would (and have) highly recommended him to close friends and neighbors not only for his skills, but also his pleasant personality and professionalism. Thanks again Nima, I’m sure I’ll be hiring you again!

I contacted Steve to inspect the roof of my room addition due to leaks. Steve was able to come out the following day for an inspection, and he was able to give me a same day quote which was several hundred dollars below the other quotes I had received. Steve and his crew were able to complete the work the same day and although I was at work he stayed in contact with me via cell phone which included pictures. I absolutely would recommend Steve for roof repairs without hesitation. As a matter of fact, I plan to contract with him to do additional construction projects on my property. If there were six stars I would have given it to him.

Steve proved himself to be an excellent choice for me to have some home improvement work taken care. Within 10 minutes of placing my request on Thumb Tac, I had received a response from Steve with an estimate of how much it would cost to do the work site unseen. Within an hour he was onsite looking over the project; we were able to quickly negotiate a fair price to have the work done with Steve including the demolition and haul-away of a weathered wooden shed and the spa pump, heater, and other items stored within it. My primary request was to have a somewhat large, very weathered wood deck demoed and hauled away to a landfill/dump. Steve turned out to be an easy-going, personable, and exceptionally hard worker very knowledgeable in many areas of home improvement, construction and demolition. He carefully and expertly executed the demolition and haul away of the entire wood deck. – A lot of work. Steve worked his a$$ off to demo the deck and haul it away in an efficient, timely, and proper manner. As a result, I asked Steve to also provide a power wash to my house paying special attention to my very weathered front walkway pavers. Throughout the project Steve followed through on every promise and worked especially hard to bring out the best with the power washing of the pavers providing an exceptionally noticeable improvement after removing a lot of baked in dirt, grime, and fungus. There were a couple of times when Steve could not make it back to continue the work at the agreed upon time due to unexpected ‘life’ events, which I understand happens to all of us. However, even given a couple of unexpected hold-ups, he made it to the site every day, kept me in the loop with what was going on, and gave me a discount to compensate for the inconvenience and hold-up in getting to the site due to these interruptions. He went so far as to show up on a Sunday to coat and seal the newly power washed front walkway pavers. All-in-all, it was a great experience working with Steve. He was reliable, a hard worker, very proficient and knowledgeable, and very competitively priced. I look forward to having him back for other home improvements in the near future. Thanks for a great job, Steve! -Bob

Jose did a great job on our pool deck. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to pool regulations. He and his crew completed the job quicker than expected and we couldn't be more happier. We got a few quotes and he gave us a very reasonable price. We decided to go with him because we were impressed with his professionalism, knowledge and fulfilling all our requests.

My experience with Houman was awesome not only because he did it fast and less expensive then others but because he took his time too listen to what I needed exactly and did it perfect. I had him too repaint my office room and also change the lighting and some wires. The lighting In the room is perfect and there's no more issues with my light keep turning off and on. I would definitely suggest him to everyone.

John did such an excellent job on our projects. He replaced an existing porch that was nearly falling down with a beautiful, sturdy deck that we love. He was able to finish the deck in less than a week and kept the work area in a neat and orderly fashion. We’ll get so much use out of our new deck. We also needed our front door relocated. The area we were moving the door to was not square and John was able to custom fit a slab door into the existing doorway. The fit is amazing. It works better than the original front door. We would highly recommend John for any project. He was thorough, fast, neat, fairly priced and did a great job. THANKS JOHN!

Scott restored a dark and dreary antique dining-room table, a family heirloom, and revealed a a gorgeous, rich wood that now glows. No more table clothes! The work was on time and on budget, and it was well worth it.

Highly recommended! We hired Robin to build a fence and some gates for us. In addition to doing an excellent job on the initial project we ended us using him for a 5 other smaller jobs. Two of those included kitchen appliance re-installations that were extremely difficult because they had previously not been repaired or installed correctly by others. Really, this guy can fix anything! He also fixed a broken front door jam that that others said could not be repaired and must be replaced, saving us a couple thousand for a new front door. We would absolutely use him again in the future. Thanks Robin :)

I have a few rental houses, I can always depend on David to give me quality work and a fair price. What I appreciate most is his diversity, it is rare to find an individual that I would trust in my personal home as well as my rentals. I need to rely on someone who can do many things, electrical, plumbing, drywall, building decks, & roofing you name it he can do it. I've had a working relationship with David for over 20 years. He does a great job! I've posted a large tile job he did for me a few years back and it still is in Great shape. David laid a wood floor in my home as well. I've received many compliments on how beautiful it is. Strongly recommend him!

Mathew did some baseboard repairs for us and did an exemplary job. In addition to the 4 areas that we'd discussed he identified a couple additional areas and repaired them with no additional charge. After the job, Mathew called to follow up and make sure I was satisfied with the results. We look forward to working with him in the future!

John did a great job hanging our solid core doors! These were not pre-hung doors and required hinges to be morticed, set, and handle cutouts to be made. He even had to build the door jambs. He handled it like a pro! In addition to his quality work, John was prompt, friendly, and cleaned up after himself like he was never there. We will definitely use him again for future projects!

Abraham is such a great person! He met me when promised and quickly scoped my project and gave me a fair quote. I had flooding and needed drywall, baseboard and re-painting done. Abraham matched the color or paint for my home perfectly. He went out of his way to find the unique baseboard in my home and made my house look great again! I was so impressed with Abraham that I also had him replace my garbage disposal which he also executed perfectly. I had written the check for a $100 more on accident and he followed up with me because he noticed my mistake and wanted to return the cash. He is a great person and talented at any home improvement job!

Jordan as a person was very nice. His inital follow up was prompt and he spoke very highly of his attention to detail. As a first time homeowner, I know little about construction and heavily rely on the expert knowledge of others to assist with our remodel. We hired Jordan after meeting three other contractors based solely on our interaction with him. When we originally had Jordan out to our house it was for a flooring quote only. Jordan explained he also preformed landscaping work on the side so we added that to our list. Jordan did an amazing job installing the floors! The entire dynamic of the house changed because of the floors. I was very disappointed in a few other areas which is the reason for 4 stars. We do not currently live in the house although we do have a few items in place for weekend visits. Towards the end of the job Jordan said that they were mostly finished so I had gone to check out the progress. The tile work in both bathrooms is crooked. The master bath is very noticeable. In addition, my bedding was covered in dust and they had smeared grout into the carpet in my bedroom. There was also sloppy grouting and caulking done in several areas of my home. To add insult to injury his crew decided it was ok to help themselves to my kids popcicles - this actually upset me just asuch as the tile floor. Giving credit where it is due: Jordan and Tim did have my carpets cleaned, my bedding dry cleaned and I was given the option to have them rip up the bathroom floor or receive a discount from my final bill. Jordan did offer to replace the missing popcicles as well although that never did happen. The landscape looks nice as well but we asked to keep the remaining turf and that also didn't happen. I asked jordan about it and he said what was salvageable was in our shed - it wasnt. Again, I was very happy with the floors but the other items make it hard to say if I would rehire for additional projects. Nice guy but I didn't feel like our home was cared for in the way he said it would be. If you do decide to hire Jordan my recommendations would be: 1. Get a detailed breakdown of the work 2. Notate about the use of your personal items (they completely filled up both our garbage cans) 3. Inspect. Inspect. Inspect. Check every corner.

I found Chris when I was given one of his fliers by a friend who raved about his work. I only deal with licensed contractors, since I've been burned before and there's little recourse when they disappear or change their phone#, plus eventually I have a lot of work I want to get done and I want it all legit in case I need permits,etc... And licenses tell me a person has made the effort to put his time in, learn a trade, and become licensed. It's cost me more money to fix things that have been done sub-par over the years. The paint on my house trim was peeling and I could see the wood was becoming damaged in some areas, which means more money to fix rotted wood, so I was anxious to get the exterior paint done. I shopped around. Chris gave me a fair estimate, plus he was confident in his work and I saw the results at my neighbor's house. I loved that he was very respectful of my house, my yard, clean up, and his work was so clean! He gave me a head's up that some of the wood may be more damaged once he sanded the old paint. He showed me the damaged wood and gave me the option to fix it or not, which of course needed to be done. He replaced some old window sills and window frames. You can't even tell which ones he replaced! Everything matches the other windows! I couldn't be more pleased. After a few weeks I saved some money and was still so excited about the outside of my house finally getting done right that I decided to get some work done in the bathroom. My house is 90 yrs old, the interior walls have plaster not drywall, which many guys don't want to touch, but Chris said "No problem!" it's one of his specialities. He explained what's involved, wrote an estimate, and now I've got one bathroom done and it looks AWESOME! My husband is impressed. We're going to have a dinner party with friends to celebrate. Chris is a solid guy with good old fashioned work ethic. We have only great things to say about his work! After the new year we're going to save money and have a deck built so my husband can barbecue outdoors. Thumbs up times a hundred!

We had a great experience with John, starting with how responsive he was and then being here when he said he would be. Not so much the norm with others we have dealt with. We started with a deck, then another deck and ended with bathroom remodels. John always gave detailed and accurate proposals and bills and kept to the costs to what was quoted.

I would highly recommend Ron's Handyman Service. Ron showed up on time, promptly diagnosed the problem and fixed it. Everything he said went exactly as expected. I am going to have him build us a deck for us next.

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.
