Look no further. Calderon and his crew (Oscar, Roberto, & Daniel) are the answer to your hardwood flooring installation. They were simply unbelievable in the quality of work and the speed in which they did it. 1,100 sq ft in a day and a half. Calderon immediately recognized previously installed flooring was done improperly (by my handyman). They disassembled what had been done and replaced the flooring properly. I had priced baseboard from Home Depot at about $1,300 for my floors. Calderon found it for $250. He even went and picked it up at no charge. He also found some stair nose and t molding that my floor store would have to special order. In addition, they removed and hauled away carpeting from one room. Calderon's price was unbeatable, especially considering the quality of work they do. Truly a Top Pro organization. I highly recommend this team.See more

I asked Mitch to install new outlets in my bed room behind my wall-mounted TV. Mitch did a great job. He arrived on time, inspected my room, offered some advice on electricity safety for my bed room, and started to work. I had TV unmounted ahead of time. He asked me to mark where to install. He carefully listened to my concern to conceal the whole outlet to the back of TV but still to keep it by the side, in case I want to plug and unplug without un-mounting the TV. After drilling on the dry wall on the planned location, we saw a stud blocking the wiring from the top. I agreed this might not be common in newly built house but might exist in old houses. He offered a few options to work around, and their pros and cons, and moved forward along with what I want. His wiring at the attic was also very elegant, binding to the frames properly, not letting them loose in the attic (the other handyman did the loose way when he installed the bath fan for me) Speaking of price, Mitch was charged based on the type of the project, not the hour he worked. This seems more comfortable for me. Based on the quality of the job and the bill he charged me, I paid him a ~13% tip, which however is definitely optional.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.
