Matt was very professional and a good communicator. He did some minor construction on our stairs and resealed our deck, and did a great job. We would definitely hire him again.

I employed Milko to powerwash and stain my redwood deck. I found that he had all the characteristics that I look for in a contractor - punctuality, responsiveness, and professionalism. He was really concerned about making us happy, as opposed to just finishing the work and getting on with his next job. He was the first one that brought samples of finishes (not just showed us pictures). We were very pleased with his work and will use him again when we have something he can help us with

I hired Jasper from My Apartment Is Better Than Yours. I think they did a terrific job at a very reasonable price. I'm really pleased that I decided to go with them. I had a number of unusual carpentry tasks to complete when I moved to my new place. The windows were old and the wood was irregular and moldy, so the wood around the antique glass panels needed to be replaced. I was told those windows hadn't been opened in 40 years, but now they work perfectly and you'd never know the wood wasn't original. Also, several doorways lacked doors when I moved in, and were unusual rounded shapes cut into the stucco without doorframes. Jasper was able to make me custom doors with antique iron-wrought handles, and they look awesome. I also needed threshholds worked on, cabinets put up, new benches made for my roof deck, a custom projector and screen put in, antique chandeliers installed, a lock repaired... and I'm probably forgetting one or two things. They are in the process of putting the finishing touches on my humidor (they had to build me custom legs for it), and it's going to look spectacular. Anyway, they knocked it all out of the park. They were prompt and clean and didn't cause much of a disturbance despite all the work they were doing. They'll be my go-to for anything I need done in the future. I definitely recommend them.

I had a great experience using Victor to clear coat my deck and the wood exterior of my house. Aside from doing a great job on the project at a fair price, Victor was very responsive throughout the process and was proactive in keeping me up to date on the progress (sending me photos during the workdays of the job). I'd gladly use him again on my next painting project!

We had Bogdan do a bathroom renovation in our old house, which was full of little unplanned difficulties. He worked long hours, putting in lots of extra touches to make things pull together. He was always noticing details we never would have and thinking ahead to create the best options. He is a kind person and very professional. He clearly cares about his work. He also had a good network of folks to help out when he needed it. The job took longer and was more complicated than I expected and when I tally all the hours of work he put in, it was a very fair price. It is rare to find someone who cares about doing an excellent job even beyond what the customer expects. Bogdan is your man.

Eduardo and his team have decades of vast experience. Prior to forming his own business, Eduardo was in charge of the 'A-Team' for one of the highest regarded painting companies in the East Bay. We initially met when we hired his previous employer to paint the exterior of our home/ garage. Having a newborn child, we were very concerned that the paint job was handled thoughtfully by experts trained in effectively handling the homes with lead paint. Eduardo and he crew did an excellent job. Since then (nearly 11 years later) we have reached to Eduardo for: Interior paint/repairs when putting previous home on the market, move-in interior paint job for subsequent home (nearly nine years ago and still looks great!), exterior two-story duplex for my mother-in-law, wallpaper stripping, light fixture installation, plumbing work, wall patching, dry wall replacement, dry rot repair, deck repair/restoration even toilet replacement. If Eduardo can't do it, he knows someone that can (his contact assisted my mother-in-law with an emergency busted hot water heater replacement)! He does tend to book out so it's helpful plan you job in advance if you have a rigid timeline. If you are a bit flexible he can sometimes sneak in an interior job if Mother Nature isn't cooperating for his exterior jobs. He snuck in a three-day impromptu stairwell, bathroom, hallway and laundry room job for us last week, spaces that we had neglected to freshen up prior to our move in in 2009. Couldn't be happier with the results! I have recommended him countless times over the years to friends, neighbors and family and I have only heard positive feedback about him and the high quality of his work. He is professional and trustworthy. Bonus: having Eduardo and his team work in/around our home is always a pleasure as they are friendly & respectful and my kids adore 'em!

Chris did an absolutely tremendous job on our front and back Ipe decks. We had made the bad mistake of having them stained a few years back with a dark heavy stain, which was starting to flake off. Chris painstakingly sanded the existing stain off and finished the decks with Ipe Oil. They now look "like a piece of furniture". He was extremely punctual, trustworthy, a delight to work with. Could not recommend him more.

Our deck hasn't been maintained since we moved in a couple years ago and likely before that. JD & Son's Painting washed it, made stain recommendations, and painted it to make it look great again. They took great care to not get any paint on any of my property while doing so which was a challenge as this is a 2nd story deck.

Ricky and his team were awesome! They replaced dry rotted boards and posts on my deck last week. Ricky communicated with me regularly and he and his team were very conscientious, cared about doing a good job and wanted to do it right even when that meant extra boards and adding a couple of posts to make the deck stronger. They worked hard and did an excellent, quality job. They even cut the top off two decorative posts that had dry rot and fixed a section of my fence that had recently blown down. I really can't say enough good things about them! They were great and I will be hiring them to do additional work for me. I highly recommend them.

Scorpion Services provided me and my family with an amazing Trex deck. The upper deck covers a large portion of our lower deck which has made this winter season enjoyable outside. I definitely recommend Scorpion Services to anyone who is remodeling/building a deck or add on to their home.

Dan was great to work with. He performed a a quick inspection and estimate - arriving at the stated time, and then did the work the next day. He repaired some structural issues with my deck, and did a bit of inside wood repair as well. He was quick and efficient, and the work was an excellent value.

I contacted Thumbtack looking for a contractor to install some siding along the back of my house where a deck had been removed and I got a quick response from Eddie from ER Builds & Repairs. He came out, gave me a quote and a few days later returned and did a wonderful job! He was on time, quick and very reasonable. The side of the house looks as if no deck had ever been there. I highly recommend Eddie. Eloisa M.

We hired Esdras for two jobs around our house. Esdras did an entrance door step remodeling for us which required some skills to customize this project. Since he did a great job we asked him to fix our two entrance gates to the backyard and to install some improvements around the landing deck of our pool area. All the jobs were accomplished in a timely manner with attention to detail. Esdras is very punctual, easy to talk to and courteous. The pricing for the project is absolutely fair without any surprises. We will definitely hire Esdras again for one of our next projects around the house.

Eduardo was fantastic! He was on time, totally professional and efficient. He created a small deck and cover for my outdoor tub... worked around an odd shaped deck, created a gorgeous cover that was much better than the one I had in mind. He was friendly to have around, and I will definitely be hiring him again!

Sebastian and his crew were excellent for our project. We had a pretty unique request where we asked him to build a substantial retaining wall, a decorative wood wall on top of that, a back deck, and another fence. It was mostly a cosmetic, hardscaping job to disguise some strange "SF-Style" weird hillside that abuts one side of our yard. I had much of the creative vision, but Sebastian brought a ton of great ideas, and excellent execution with, what I perceive to be, top craftsmanship. I will hire him again to do more work at our place. Also, he is a very chill guy, so that helped with our pace. We are not intense (I hope), but we demanded excellent, high-end work. He used top-end materials (ipe wood) and stainless steel hardware. He really matched our style.

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.
