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!

Jose was professional, timely, and experienced. He came in and did an effective and honest estimate. We had him install recessed lighting and surround sound speakers. He did an excellent job covering and protecting our floors and furniture as well as cleaning up after himself. He completed excellent work. He treated our house with extreme care, as if it were his own. We couldn't be happier and will be hiring him for many more projects around our house.

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 and his crew did an awesome job. They transformed our backyard from a dirt patch with a rotted deck to a wonderful paver patio and installed a retaining wall. They always showed up promptly on time and finished quickly which was surprising for a such a big job. We will definitely be in touch for future projects!

I was very happy with him. He did an excellent job painting the interior of my home. Due to tall vaulted ceilings it was more of a job then I could do. He completed the job with much better outcome then I could have ever done. I will hire him again.

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.

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!

Brendt did a great job. He showed up on time, was very courteous and went the extra mile to make my closet door look great. Even when a few curve balls were thrown at him, he knew what to do to make the situation work. I would not hesitate to use him again for future projects.

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.

Recently worked with Charles and his team on our new house. His team was wonderful. Brendan is a joy to work with and has excellent craftsmanship. Karen, his designer is absolutely lovely and truly helped is incorporate a our wished into a reality. She brought amazing insight and ideas to the project. Our tile work in the bathroom is lovely. The small space we were working with ended up feeling spacious and airy just how we wanted. Professionalism is very important and his team demonstrated that day in and day out. They definitely took pride in their work and it shows in the final project.

Addition/mother in law unit. New upper deck and bathroom. Work is in progress, and it's going to be beautiful! The experience throughout the design phase was enjoyable. Kept with our spanish style home yet updated and modernized. We've been in our home for 15 years and look forward to earning some extra income from the attached unit. And especially excited about the new water catchment system.

Rockbilt Construction built my house from the ground up, it is beautiful! It is built on the incline of a mountain and has a view from the living room sliding doors and a walk on deck along the back of the house. Any wife would love the house and any guy would love the 3&1/2 car / RV garage with 14’ high cealings .

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.
