We hired Cruz to trap, proof, and clean up mice and skunk in our crawl space and garage because of all the great reviews on Thumbtack. He just finished the main job and will come back next week to do a final check. We had an extensive problem and he did an excellent job. From the first onsite consultation to all the subsequent visits, Cruz did high quality work, was professional, respected our home, and worked around our schedule. He's also flexible to meet our additional asks: He filled in some holes in our deck foundation where we had seen skunk activity after we asked him; we also just asked him to do some more clean up in one part of the garage and he says he will when he comes back next week. Lastly, he stands by his work; he stressed that if we see any more rodent droppings in the future he will come back.

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

Fantastic work! Finished a new 300 square foot deck and a new roof for us. We could not be happier. Eli came and helped us with the plans, permits from the city and everything else from start to finish. Was a great experience!

Great job! Skilled, FAST with a very professional outcome. Painted the whole interior except the ceilings, Did the extras like changing out the door molding a dog had chewed thru--I never expected that. Carefully moved all the furniture, both inside and on the deck, and put it all back according to his photos. Power washed the deck and teak furniture, painted my metal outdoor table and chairs, painted 2 of the outside walls, power washed all the cobwebs down from under the eaves (one from about 20' feet off the ground). He also can do carpentry and plumbing. I might need a gate and, if so, I will call him. Very, very enthusiastic and has a great crew.

Juan and his assistant installed a security grill which was complicated by the fact that my wood door needed to be cut and re-hung to open inwards. I was thrilled, first off, that Juan was willing to do the job, since a couple other people I spoke with wanted me to buy a new door. Juan responded very quickly, answered all my questions, and was very professional and clear with his quote. His price was extremely fair, a bargain really, and he was able to accommodate my schedule and stay in touch via email. They worked very cleanly, covering the deck and floors, and tenting off the kitchen with taped plastic. The work went very quickly and smoothly. Juan needed to tweak a few things in order to make everything fit, so the finished product has some tiny flaws. Aesthetically and functionally, though, the doors are exactly what I wanted and expected for my slightly funky older home. I would definitely hire him again.

I hired Renew Crew to power wash our patio, restrain our deck, and paint our exterior siding. They did and amazing job and were very responsive and professional. We just moved into a 200 year old walk up and the exterior was quite dirty. The Crew cleaned all exterior surfaces including our gutters, siding, sidewalk and brick patio, driveway and two small decks. Amazing results and clean beyond expectations. The result is that we didn't have to Paint the entire house! The cleanup was good enough to where Renew Crew will only paint one side and the rest is in good shape. Would definitely hire again!

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.

I hired Eddie Rodgriguez of ER Builds to build a Trex deck in my back yard. His bid was very reasonable and he provided a detailed contract. He was on-time, very professional and communicated thoroughly. The deck is outstanding and I could not be happier. I would recommend him without any reservations and I will use his services again in the future.

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!

Shaz was hired by my next door neighbor to completely renovate the exterior of their house. The whole work crew were always courteous and Shaz went out of his way to ensure I was happy with the work and any impact on my property. As time went by I could see how much care and attention Shaz puts into his projects so I didn't hesitate to hire him to replace some damaged siding on my property. All of the work was been carried out to the very highest standard and I would definitely use Shaz Construction again.* Thanks for everything Shaz, I'll miss you guys! And thanks for all the plant advice ;-) I'll let you know when we are in a position to tackle our rotten siding issue. Best wishes, Ian & Jo.

Mauricio was great. He was on time polite and did a great job on my door frame. I would certainly hire him again. He worked quickly and went beyond trying to find a door frame that fit my particular door. He even cleaned up all of the mess and left everything spotless. Thank you so much!

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.
