Matt is awesome! Super personable and does great work! He follows his word and can make your vision a reality. I showed him some pictures of a wedding altar I wanted to build (in order to hold vintage doors) and he executed exactly what I was looking for! I will definitely have Matt back for my next project! I highly recommend you hiring Matt for any handyman or carpentry needs.

Ricardo was our handyman while we lived in Belmont, Redwood City and even when we moved to Alamo, California. He was an excellent carpenter, handyman and Jack-of-all-trades ... always accommodating and cheerful. He was punctual, reliable and very creative in home repair challenges...always thought "outside the box". Ricardo was always a pleasure to have around while working on projects in our homes. We wish we could have taken him with us when we moved to Eagle, Idaho -- we really miss him!!!

Jasper did an excellent job of designing and building my computer desk and storage unit. On our first meeting he was able to translate the description of what I wanted into a drawing with measurements. On his next visit he confirmed the measurements and proposed workarounds for dealing with challenges such as the room's molding as well as taking a paint sample to match the color of the unit with the room. The results were better than I expected. The unit truly looks built-in with molding around the top that matches the molding in the room. Though it's a floor to ceiling unit, it does not feel overbearing due to the design, color and seamless attachment to walls and ceiling. He was easy to work with when making adjustments in order to accommodate placement of my computer equipment. When I specified what I wanted, I got exactly that. Jason is an extremely competent woodworker and very fast executor. I would highly recommend him.

When Juan and I began to negotiate the cost of the work that I needed done, he quoted me an hourly rate. I balked at this; stating that I preferred to pay by the job - and that way, he would be free to work as quickly or as slowly as he pleased. He stated to me, in a very cool and yet confident way: "Let me explain to you who I am..." He went on to talk to me about the integrity that he tries to honor; and the business that he is trying to build. He assured me that he is honorable and hard working; and that he would never charge me what he was not due. My soul felt that he should be trusted...and what an gift it has been to experience the quality of his work, his kindness, his business acumen, and the wisdom of his words. He is a licensed contractor, an honorable man, and a master of his craft.

Eddie and his crew did a great job for us. He installed the new siding on our refurbished garage. They did a great job with a lot of attention to detail. More importantly, Eddie is a union trained carpenter with a great work ethic. He was there on time and finished the job at the agreed price in less time than he thought it would take. We will definitely be looking to hire him again for some other work.

If we could give Wise Stage Remodeling more stars than 5, we would! We hired Wise Stage Remodeling to finish a very difficult and messy remodel in San Francisco (single family house). A previous contractor messed the remodel up beyond belief and left it in shambles, while we were out of town. None of the new contractors were even willing to consider taking this job and we were desperate. Sergey from Wise Stage Remodeling responded to our request via Thumbtack. He gave us a very reasonable estimate and timeframe to finish the project. Sergey and his team (especially Arthur, his carpenter, who's amazing with cabinets, doors, tiling) were extremely diligent and hardworking. They remodeled the kitchen from top to bottom, as well as finished remodeling the rest of messy unfinished projects of all levels of difficulty throughout the house. Sergey and Arthur pulled us out of a very messy situation and made the impossible possible. They were both incredibly responsive and accommodating throughout the entire construction process: hardworking, honest, and polite guys. Their attention to detail and ability to face our complex construction issues alleviated a lot of stress and pain on our part. We simply lucked out w/hiring Wise Stage Remodeling. We've been through a number of remodels with a few of our properties in San Francisco, and never had a more pleasant experience with the contractors. We would absolutely, without a doubt, recommend hiring Wise State in a heartbeat!

Sightline Builders, Inc., did a full kitchen renovation for us as well as partial renovations of the master bath and second bath. The results were fantastic. Sightline goes well beyond the norm, providing not only stellar workmanship, but also an attention to detail rarely seen today. Everyone who has viewed the renovations asks for a business card. And, we sold our home in just 7 days, thanks to the impeccable workmanship.

Overall great experience. I needed a table built and got the sense very quickly that while Mike is a master of his craft, his #1 goal is customer satisfaction, whatever the customer needs. Quality was also fantastic, we love our new table!

Brian is a fantastic contractor. He was able to see the vision we had for our living room and master bathroom and create them for us. We are so happy with the work. It has really changed our house and how enjoyable the new space is. We would highly recommend him. I don't think there is anything too challenging for Brain. He is a truly skilled carpenter and his work stellar.

I love my new kitchen that Emmery Construction and Renovation did! The job went smoothly, without any problems. It was finished under budget, under the time projected and they even had time to put in a new bathroom vanity, mirror and new light fixture in my guest toilet! I loved how John completes your job, before moving his crew onto someone else's. I had a bad experience with my last kitchen remodel with another contractor. On that previous remodel, the contractor was trying to juggle several jobs at once, and would constantly make excuses as to why he wasn't working on my job–very frustrating and it took weeks longer than he quoted me. This time, my experience was a dream come true! John even had a designer on his team, that took all of my ideas and turned them into a cohesive and beautifully finished project–better than I had ever dreamed it could be! It was a pleasure working with his whole team! I'll be calling Emmery Construction & Renovation again, as soon as I'm ready to redo my master bath! It was a GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!

Shoshana handled every aspect of my small job with professional details, accurate and timely info (when she says she’ll be there she is!) including great planning and consult time, assistance with wrangling other folks who needed to be coordinated, and no drama! I enjoyed working with a lady carpenter, I felt comfortable asking any question! I’m thrilled with the project and recommend her highly!

Mr. Doherty is super highly recommended by me!!!! The reasons are: 1. Extremely professional carpenter! To be honest, the most professional one I've ever met! (I met a lot of them!)- he made me staircase, wardrobe and fence. But what was even more professional- he fixed mistakes of previous carpenters who told me that it was absolutely impossible to make it in a different way!!!!!!!! 2. Very honest! VERY! 2. Absolutely perfect quality of his work. 3. He is very creative person. I was really pleased that he gave me some professional advice which were very practical and helpful! Thank you Mr. Doherty very much!!!!

Review by a Homeowner in Pleasant Hill, CA Project: Remodel a Kitchen Comments: I hired Bill Sass ( owner of Shamleess Design) to remodel my entire kitchen. He replaced all of the cabinets, custom made a cabinet for my refrigerator. installed a new floor, installed ceiling lights and touched up the entire kitchen such as ceiling, walls, molding, and made custom shelves in one of the cabinets. I have remodeled 3 kitchens in 3 different houses and he far exceed any of the other contractors I have worked with. He is extremely meticulous about his work. He will redo any mistakes until it is perfect. He was very friendly, courteous and extremely patient with me and he went beyond and above in meeting my expectations. Bill did all the work himself and he was fast and precise. He is by far the best contractor and carpenter I have ever had the privilege of working with. I would recommend him for any job he is capable of doing. If I could give him 10 stars, I would. He was a man of his word and he always kept me informed as to what he plans to do each day. The fees he charged was very reasonable. I would definitely hire 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 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.
