Great experience with Jaime Beach. He's very knowledgeable. We had our fence repaired. He came and gave a quote, came back on a scheduled date/time and finished the job even though it rained that afternoon. He did a fantastic job. We love the work! A true carpenter who is great at his craft.

OMG! Amazing! Outstanding! I chose DG Construction because I needed several jobs done and I didn't want to hire multiple companies to do the work. My projects consisted of painting the entire downstairs of my 2600+ sq. ft. new home, landscaping my dirt backyard, and putting in a concrete dog run which would be separated by an iron gate that matches the builder's gate. David Gomez, the owner, came out to my home to give me a free estimate. I explained what I wanted in general, and he refined my ideas and gave me some additional ones. Like a smart shopper does, I sought out other companies for estimates so that I could make an informed decision in choosing the best company for the job. Since DG Construction was the only company that could do EVERYTHING that I wanted and the estimate was reasonable and right in the middle of the other estimates, it was my company of choice. I was very impressed with Mr. Gomez. He's young, but don't let that concern you. He's extremely knowledgeable, experienced, efficient, reliable, professional, and personable. He is an on-site boss. He was there at the beginning and end of each work day. His workers were awesome! They arrived every morning between 6:00 and 7:00 and worked throughout the day until late afternoon with only minimal breaks. At the end of the work day, the crew cleaned-up and made sure that everything was left neat and in order. Throughout the entire job, Mr. Gomez kept me informed of the progress towards completion. I appreciated the fact that Mr. Gomez was constantly mindful of my maximum budget when making suggestions to further enhance the outcome of the various projects that I had done. It was unbelievable that at the end of SIX days, all of the projects that I wanted done in addition to a few extra ones were completed! My downstairs is beautifully painted. I now have a nice dog run with a perfectly matched iron gate, and a gorgeous landscaped front and back yard. I was and am elated! The quality of the work and the timeliness are exceptional! This by far was the best and most satisfying construction/remodeling experience that I have ever had. I will definitely be calling on DG Construction for all of my future projects. I strongly recommend that you do the same. I am certain that you won't be disappointed!

John has been my go to handyman for the past few years. He has an eye for detail and is very meticulous. Other carpenters who have seen his work have commented on the quality of his craftsmanship. He charges more than others, but it’s well worth it.

Great and pleasant experience overall, and hopefully we can continue bringing him for all future need/help at our place. After a very bad experience we had with another handyman company I found here on Thumbtack (also had great reviews… why??), he was the best thing happened. He was responsive, communicative, reliable, professional, and most of all, came up with a much easier solution that would cost us less. The good reviews of him here did not let us down, two thumbs up!

I recently moved to Beverly Hills and bought a beautiful antique bed frame. The only problem with the bed frame was the open space underneath it. I have a beautiful little Bengal kitten that would have loved to have crawled under my bed and hid all day long. I considered purchasing a brand new bed frame that extended all the way to the floor to prevent my kitten from running under the bed, but thought perhaps an experienced carpenter could match the wood on the frame exactly and extend it all the way to the floor. I decided to place an ad on Thumbtack and Ricky responded to my request immediately. He did an incredible job. He responded to my request right away, offered an unbelievably inexpensive quote, and offered to come over as soon as possible to resolve the problem. He did such a wonderful job from start to finish - he not only matched the wood perfectly but made the installation seamless with the rest of my bed, which I thought would be nearly possible with an antique. I cannot emphasize what a fabulous job he did - I highly recommend him.

Pat quoted installation of our backsplash. He was on time and very professional. His quote was the lowest of three. We did not move forward with the project but if we did we would have definitely hired him. We will keep him in mind for our next project.

I had been using a good carpenter for projects around our new houses for the last 3 years and when he wasn't available recently we found Micah and I am so impressed with his work. The first project he did was this patio cover in the photos. Amazing craftsmanship, every joint and line is clean and straight, and it's sturdy and stable. The finished project, I think you'll agree, added soooo much appeal to our yard. The next project was a custom built-in bench, cabinet piece in our foyer. I hope you can see from the pictures that it's immaculate. The lines are clean, the spacing is tight, all the little details that differentiate good carpentry are present. The doors and chest top work smoothly and seamlessly. It's been two days and it's already proven to be super useful and integrate perfectly with our home decor. Highly recommend!

My parents lost their home due mud/debris flow. Empire Builders were awesome they helped my parent gather the proper permits to demolish and clear what was left of their home and did an amazing job with the rebuild. Keith Ellis made sure my parents were very active in the design and building of the new home to make sure they would be happy even with all the obstacles the city presented. Final result a beautiful, comfortable place we all call home

Full rip-out-and-replace kitchen remodel with custom cabinetry, counters, electrical, plumbing, appliances, external door/window replacements and opening up walls to adjoining rooms. Ephraim bid competitively compared to two other companies we contacted and when selected, he led a top-quality crew to complete a complex job in our home. Ephraim was adept at listening to our wants and needs and was able to take our design ideas and offer suggestions about how to execute with available materials including how much different options would cost. Good communication was always provided on paper with regard to cost changes and design plans. Our new kitchen is beautiful and gets constant compliments on the quality and design. We will definitely be calling Galvin Designer Builders for the next project!

    I’ve had work done in my home and work studio by AnD, and am always impressed. Dana is a skilled handyman and builder, and his artistic sense has contributed greatly to some design challenges I’ve had. I’ve recommended his work to friends who have all been pleased as well, and I’m sure I’ll be hiring him again.

    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.
