If you want to have your IKEA furniture assembled properly and to last, then hire Robert and his crew. They actually know what they are doing and have all of the right tools (laser levelers, power tools and other doo-dads carpenters use). IKEA is a budget brand but with the right installation it looks like a million bucks! I could not be happier with our cabinets that are now in our new Bliss Crystals showroom in Temecula. Wow it is just spectacular and it would have been a shabby mess would we have tried to do it ourselves. There are times to call in the pros and pony up the $ to have it done right. And I'm so glad I did! Thank you to Robert and Company. Will call them again when we expand our store...

Great experience with Jaime Beach. He's very knowledgeable. We had our fence repaired. He came and gave a quote, came back on a scheduled date/time and finished the job even though it rained that afternoon. He did a fantastic job. We love the work! A true carpenter who is great at his craft.

Mike Lindsey is a superb craftsman, a hard worker, and a good guy. I couldn't recommend a carpenter more highly. We needed a fence built to replace our old one that had been damaged by a hit and run driver. We had several "fence builders" come out to talk about the job and give us an estimate. They never even called back. The excuses went on: the job was too complicated; it would entail a finish carpenter that the company didn't have; they couldn't take on the job at the time. I almost gave up, then thought to search for a carpenter instead of a fence builder. That's how we found Mike. He worked with us to create exactly what we envisioned and offered suggestions that greatly improved the look and quality of the fence. His approach and pricing strove to make the job as fair as possible for himself, for his workers, and for us. He found us the best wood possible. The skill he has shown and the care he has taken in building the fence and swinging, saloon-style gate are remarkable. At last, we will a magnificent fence that will last for years. Soon, I'll be posting photos of the finished fence and gate.

John has been my go to handyman for the past few years. He has an eye for detail and is very meticulous. Other carpenters who have seen his work have commented on the quality of his craftsmanship. He charges more than others, but it’s well worth it.

I LOVED working with Novica. He build a gorgeous 12' x 24' Ipe deck for me and it is absolutely stunning. The floating design he came up with has gotten so many compliments already and the love for his work is obvious from his attention to detail. He is also reliable and extremely passionate. Besides being an incredible carpenter Novica is also an amazing person. Not only did he go out of his way to build a gorgeous deck but he also helped me fix a disconnected dryer vent while he was out there. I really can not recommend Novica highly enough. He's a rare gem.

We hired Pedro to fix our bi-fold closet doors in two bedrooms which were broken off their rails, a couple of interior doors that no longer closed properly, and a couple of side gates that had closing mechanisms that did not work. We were amazed at Pedro's work. Not only did he know his carpentry stuff, but he was thorough, neat, and exceeded all our expectations. We have now found our carpenter for life, and will be using Pedro for other upcoming carpentry projects.

Aaron works diligently to make sure your project is completed on time and within budget. I have hired him to do several projects around my home including fixing toilets, fixing leaky pipes in the bathrooms, installing kitchen backsplash, he built an entire indoor dog run for my three dogs, installed lights outside, and fixed a few electrical outlets too. He is a master carpenter and great with wood projects. Can't recommend him enough. Quick, professional and just an overall nice guy. Hire him you will be thrilled with his work!

    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 you tip cabinet installers?

    In general, home service providers such as electricians, plumbers and contractors are professionals who don’t expect tips. They expect to do a job for you for the specific price they quoted. Of course, they may appreciate a tip for a job particularly well done or for which they’ve gone beyond what’s normally expected, such as completing the project early or under budget. Even better than a tip, it’s always appropriate to leave a positive review online after a good experience.

    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 much is custom cabinetry?

    Custom cabinets can be built for any room, including bedroom closets and built-in armoires. Measured carefully and built precisely, custom cabinetry can increase storage and beautify any room. The national average for building custom cabinets ranges from $500 to $1,200 per linear foot. The cost is highly variable because there are so many styles, colors, glazes and other options. In general, the linear footage of the cabinets, the materials used to build them, and the cost of the labor will determine the cost. Solid wood costs more than plywood and wood veneer, and costs vary among different types of wood; maple and cherry cabinets are more expensive than pine. Glass-front cabinets can cost more, as can decorative hinges, handles and door pulls, which can cost $2-$45 each; choose carefully to stay within your budget and pull off the exact look you’re going for. Some carpenters also charge for installation, on average $100 per cabinet box. Additional molding and trim, such as crown molding at the ceiling, cost an average of $70 per 8-foot section, and adding finished ends to exposed cabinets averages $100-$200.

    How much does it cost to have kitchen cabinets installed?

    In any kitchen, the cabinets are the main focus, so you want to make sure new or replacement cabinets are installed correctly. A professional carpenter can properly, securely mount new cabinets to the wall; the national average cost for this service is $7,725, although the cost varies widely depending on the type of cabinets, their material and their size, and the accessories you add. A typical fee is $70 per linear foot to remove existing cabinets and assemble and install new ones; the cost is less if you do the demolition and removal yourself. Stock cabinets are the least expensive to have installed, ranging from $75 to $400 each; semi-custom cabinets range from $150 to $900 each; and custom cabinets cost from $500 to $1,400 each. Wood cabinets are more expensive than those made from plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and finished with a laminate. Wood cabinets range in cost from $80 to $160 per linear foot. Laminate-finished cabinets cost $35 to $75 per linear foot, on average.
