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!

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

Hired Jose to complete a fabric patio cover installation. He was awesome!! Came to the house to review the job, gave me a reasonable quote, and completed the job the following week. His work was excellent and quick, and although we were short material to complete, he offered to return when we get the additional material to finish up the job. Thank you so much for the excellent experience!!

I’m 47 years old and there are only 3 wood craftsman in my entire life that I’ve have been impressed with, John more than exceeded my expectations, what a treat to have a person with such knowledge and professionalism on my project. If you are looking to build a deck or have a door installed don’t do yourself the disservice of not hiring John, he will make you breathe a sigh of relief of the ease and awesomeness of his work and work ethic. Another bonus is his great attitude, as much as I will miss him when my projects are done, I’m sure he will miss my house since I had five yoga girls here complimenting his work and they all though he is an attractive manly man :) in all seriousness, I wish I found John years ago because I would have saved so much time and money doing it right. If there were 10 stars he would have 11

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!

My husband and I hired Contemporary Design Builders Inc. to build a Deck for the back of the house. His crew had the project finished in less time than expected and within budget. Carlos and his guys (Israel, Tonio, etc.) was very polite and professional. His bid was competitive. We are very happy with our new deck and look forward to working with this company again.

Sean is amazing! He's upfront and honest, friendly and motivated. I am a pretty particular person in expectations and Sean meets and exceeds them every time. He is thorough and thoughtful in his work and fair in his pricing. I feel lucky to have found Sean to help me get my new little house just the way I want it- I only hesitate to write this review for fear he becomes even busier! So far Sean has completed tasks requiring expertise in tile (bathroom and front porch), plumbing (toilet and bathroom sink), he's matched a specific baseboard and installed it, he fixed my rusted outlet, and we are in progress of planning a kitchen refacing to include the installation of a range hood fan, dishwasher, new countertops and backsplash, and updating our cabinets. He's easy to talk to and understand- he's quick and reliable. You can tell he takes pride in his work. I don't know how you find better.

Jason came out to my house on time. He was very thorough in his estimate with all of the plans that we had for both yards. Him and his crew were on time and professional the whole time. He trimmed my two trees, built a fantastic deck and laid pavers throughout the back yard. In the front yard he built a retaining wall with two columns, laid artificial turf and built me a raised planter bed. I am absolutely in love with how my yards look! I will continue to use JSJ Services for my tree trimming in the future. And I will recommend him and his crew to all my neighbors. Thank you JSJ!

Javier worked a long time on our porch, helping with the choosing of the tile and ensuring that the deck was safe. He would stay late to finish. The project took longer and was more expensive than we expected, but that's the nature of projects. In all, we are satisfied.

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!

Over the years I have renovated an 1897 home, converted a single home into 2 apartments and a gift shop and completely redone a kitchen all in Minnesota. Too bad I couldn't have had Coggins Construction do all of those jobs. Unlike past experiences, Patrick Coggins told me every day when he would show up the next and what he would do---he showed up when he said he would and did exactly as promised. He is knowledgeable, creative and his prices are very fair. His workers were efficient, everyone was neat, respectful and even nice to my obnoxious dog. I really can't say enough good things about the whole experience. I will continue to work with Coggins in the future. Thank you Patrick for the wonderful work on my patio, the new woodwork in my house and all the extra nice touches.

I hired Greg to replace a 43" piece of crown molding that was water damaged from a deck leak that was thought to have been repaired earlier. He removed the damaged section to discover the leak was never fixed and had destroyed support wood behind the wall and left black mold in that area. Instead of just patching the damaged area and replacing the molding as many would have done, he went right to the deck to get to the source of the problem. The fix was complicated, requiring creativity and a can do attitude and the experience to execute the solution. With the source of the problem eliminated, he then very expertly replaced the damaged piece. I suspect very few handy men could have accomplished this job the right way as Greg did in the shortest and least expensive way. If you need something, anything, done to full satisfaction don't hesitate to call him.

Casey has done several jobs for us over the last few years, including full inside and outside painting of our house. The outside jobs included overhang and bottom of the back wooden deck were spot on. He did a great job on new stair railing, cabinets and staining our front yard fence, including a separate area around the pool. He is prompt, efficient, clean and reliable. All of the various jobs have been done in the timeline he projects and discusses when he gives us a bid. The results are impressive and immediately improve our property value. To date there haven't been any problems with the jobs Casey has done and I don't anticipate any. If a problem were to arise, am confident that it would be handled professionally. I'm looking forward to getting our kitchen floor replaced next.

I'm writing to let you know what a wonderful job AML Leon Construction completed on my home. They replaced about 110 linear feet of damaged fascia boards, removed rotten load bearing support wood posts on my front porch and installed 6X6 new posts along with raised concrete footing. They also designed, constructed & installed a decorative grill like metal platform for my AC unit the previous plywood platform was damaged. I thought I would give you an ideal of a few jobs completed. All work was not only done professionally and in a timely fashion, also their prices were very reasonable & all material used of very high quality. I was very pleased & would highly recommend AML Leon Construction. I do plan on using them in the near future. Thank You, Mary Machado

We started out with a roof repair and a doorbell installation. Tony knows what he is doing and he does it very well. We were so pleased with his work that we have now hired him to fix the poor work done by a different handyman. He will be sanding and repainting the front door and then repairing, sanding, and repainting our deck. My only regret is that we did not find him sooner! Highly recommended!

    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.
