Marco has beautifully transformed a TV alcove into a mezzanine that now overlooks our main living room. They did exactly what we asked for, and exceeded our expectations with their service. This was our first time doing a home modification and we're so thankful we had a really good and smooth experience with Motif Makers. The railing they made looked like it was done by the original builders of our townhome. They were able to match the surface of the paint and walls they created to our existing ones perfectly. He did his best to make sure my piano will fit into the space, which was my number one concern. I loved how they always clean up before they leave and how they were willing to work through some unexpected circumstances that required more of their time and effort. They even thought of barricading the work area before they left for the day to protect our little girls from any accident which we really appreciated. They did their best to contain dust and covered our entire living room with plastic so it wouldn't get so dusty, which made cleaning easier for me afterwards. Best of all, their pricing is so much more reasonable compared to the other ones we consulted. These guys' work are on a professional level and I would recommend them to anyone and probably hire them again in the future if needed.See more

We purchased our second house in San Ramon at end of 2019. The house was built in 1983 and it was vacated for two years before we bought it. So the condition was pretty bad and needed lots of upgrade works. Since then we did a LOT of research and interviewed a number of contractors. At our first meeting, Ariel spent a long time listening to our needs and answering our questions. Then he started to give us really helpful suggestions and fresh ideas we've never heard from any other contractors, which opened up our mind. included a brand new kitchen, three brand new bathrooms (one master, two full). Our remodel expanded from tearing down one wall to two two plus a couple of doorways and tearing out our 70+ year old hardwood floors in the original house. Ariel's input on tile choices and fixtures and the like really helped to streamline that selection process. We will definitely be recommending them.See more

Cabinetry, Custom Furniture Building

In high demand

I hired Yursta Construction to refinish my kitchen cabinets and paint my wall trim and door frames. The quality of the refinished cabinetry is exceptional. You would never know that these bright grey cabinets used to be dark brown. They look brand new. The painters were friendly and went out of their way to make sure I was satisfied with the job. At the end of the project, one of the employees had some trouble reattaching the cabinet doors, and I had to reattach some of them properly. I spoke with Yuri about it, and he removed the labor charge for the final day. Overall, working with Yursta Construction was an excellent experience, and I highly recommend them for their professionalism and quality.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.
