I had hired David Gomes to dismantle my cot and assemble it again in the bedroom. He arrived on time and brought all the tools required. He does not charge by the hour unlike other handymen/carpenters and charges only according to the effort involved in the job. His charges are very reasonable. He seemed very sincere and he helped me hang a rail in the kitchen for free. I definitely recommend him !

I am an owner/builder and have been a tradesmen all of my life and generally I work alone. I pride myself with a fit and finish second to none. On a recent remodel of my brothers apartment I needed some additional assistance to expedite the completion of the project installing Crown Molding and installing the entry door. I found Thumbtack on the net and reluctantly gave it a try, not know what might show up at my door step. Francisco and Vladimir were the first to reply to my inquiry for a carpenter. We set an initial time to meet and review my job and they arrived promptly. I told them that all of the work thus far was done by me and that the thought of having a stranger do finish work to my standard on my job, scared me. They assured me that their work would be to my satisfaction and I reluctantly said ok, when can you start? On their start date they arrived on time with all of the tools necessary to complete there tasks. I observed them working methodically and with for sight and by the days end they did not meet my expectation, they exceeded it! The work was beautiful, well thought out and executed. The best part was after explaining what I desired, I didn't need to micro manage them through the process, they just got it done on their own to perfection! I would not hesitate to hire these two fine young craftsman again, and I am sure I will. Their rates were fare, the work outstanding and they cleaned up after each days work without my asking. Need more of a reference? Email me at: geppetto1@mac.com. Give these two a chance, they will not disappoint you! John B.

Matt is an excellent and talented carpenter. I had a wine cellar that needed to be assembled. He responded to my project quickly providing enough detail to make a decision to hire him. Throughout the experience he was very pleasant to communicate with. He was on time and kept me updated from start to finish. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat.

      The finished job was excellent. Marvin estimated the job would take six work days. The job was to paint all the exterior wood and trim. The prep work took six days. One of his men was a carpenter who replaced some carved posts which had extensive water damage. The job took closer to 12 days which were consecutive. I liked the fact that his crew could do work other than painting. This way there were no delays. I did get other bids. One was $200 less but they had poor reviews. I am glad I chose Peralta Painting.

      Andrew communicates better with clients than any contractor I have ever worked with in my 63 years. We had 2 very large, window supporting trim boards which were completely rotting away, presenting a potentially dangerous situation. Andrew took on the project with enthusiasm, and a great sense of what needed to be done. He arrived promptly, got right to work, and did a fabulous job of replacing, caulking, and painting the trim. He goes above and beyond to ensure that all possible problem areas are addressed, in order to avoid mishaps. He happily took on an extra job of sealing a leaky skylight for us. He cleans up after his work, is very friendly and courteous, kept us informed about everything he was doing, and presented us with all receipts. He was even nice to our two 70 pound Labs. I couldn't have asked for a better experience with a contractor. I would highly recommend Andrew and his excellent work. My husband and I were both very impressed with this young man. It was a pleasure to have him on site. How many contractors can you say THAT about? Hire him!!

      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.
