I called James at 8:15 am and he was at my house in 25 minutes! Now that's service! My husband and I needed a carpenter to install two cabinets and a counter top in our laundry room. These items had already been delivered and were sitting in our garage. What seemed like a pretty simple job turned out to be a bit more complicated. It turned out James had to make some modifications which required him to design and build an additional component on the job site. Miraculously, he accomplished this feat, and the finished product is perfection! Our laundry room looks beautiful! We are very fortunate we had James do the work. He is an excellent carpenter, very professional, very articulate, and he takes care of the surrounding areas in the home. We will be calling on him again when we need his services. He is a gem.

Jay is a pleasure to work with and far exceeded my expectations. While an experienced carpenter he can easily jump into doing a laundry list of handyman work and is very efficient with his time. Thumbs up!

I highly recommend Steve Fry for your construction needs! We had a barn door custom made just sitting at our home and in need of installation. Steve responded timely to my Thumbtack request and we made arrangements to meet within a few days. He showed up on time and was prepared to do the work. The door kit was a bit raw, but he knew exactly what to do. He was friendly, and is truly and expert in door hanging. The final product took only a few hours and it looks beautiful. Couldn't be happier. Please call Steve for your construction projects - 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.

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.

Mr. Wagner did a bang up job customizing a bed. When first I wasn't satisfied with the end product, he took it back and made it right. Great integrity and hard working carpenter with a bucket full of talent. The furniture likes like a piece of art - definitely not anything I could find in a store. I would definitely hire Mr. Wagner again.

I LOVED working with Novica. He build a gorgeous 12' x 24' Ipe deck for me and it is absolutely stunning. The floating design he came up with has gotten so many compliments already and the love for his work is obvious from his attention to detail. He is also reliable and extremely passionate. Besides being an incredible carpenter Novica is also an amazing person. Not only did he go out of his way to build a gorgeous deck but he also helped me fix a disconnected dryer vent while he was out there. I really can not recommend Novica highly enough. He's a rare gem.

We hired Pedro to fix our bi-fold closet doors in two bedrooms which were broken off their rails, a couple of interior doors that no longer closed properly, and a couple of side gates that had closing mechanisms that did not work. We were amazed at Pedro's work. Not only did he know his carpentry stuff, but he was thorough, neat, and exceeded all our expectations. We have now found our carpenter for life, and will be using Pedro for other upcoming carpentry projects.

      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.

      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.

      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.
