I am an architect, and I hired AA Cardenas Construction to rebuild a patio roof covering for my personal residence. The construction project required some thought and some careful planning by them to get the translucent roof covering to slope properly and still keep the spacing consistent across the width of the roof. They did an excellent job of adjusting on the fly to make things work perfectly. Their jobsite was neat and safe, they showed up on schedule, and the quality of the work and the attention to detail was excellent. Plus the price was very fair. I am recommending them highly.

Ralph built a deck and fence for me about a month ago and the work was absolutely great. His prices were very reaonsonable and he did the job in a very short time. By far, one of the easiest and nicest contractors to work with. I would recommend him to anyone as he finished the job on-time and the deck and fence looked great!

Gustavo and his crew (Edgar and Arman) did a great job of repairing the concrete deck around my pool. They were on-time, clean, and hardworking; not to mention doing a much better job than expected for a very fair price. I would definitely use them again if I had other jobs to do (and I think I will).

My 1300 sq ft deck refinish did not go well. They did a lot of work to power wash and prep the deck, but it just wasn't a complete job. Areas of old, worn-out finish remained over most of the deck. The new finish was applied and puddled over these areas and either formed dark, shiny areas, or just skinned over and refused to dry after more than a week. The lifetime of the finish in these areas will likely be poor. In addition, as a first "trim" operation they applied finish to the inch or so on either side of the gap between boards, then they applied finish over the boards with a roller. Unfortunately, this ended up looking pretty bad on most boards in the deck, with the edges of the boards being dark/shiny/sticky and the middle being light. Finally, some agreed upon board repair work was not done. My wife gave him the final check while I was at work so I didn't have a chance for a final inspection. My mistake. This was in no way a professional quality job. It's hard to imagine that Big League didn't know this was a mess when they finished, and they have not responded to my contact attempts to see what can be done to make this right.

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.

We needed a wooden deck and concrete patio slab demolished and hauled away. Bogdan's price was excellent and his work superb. He showed up on time, communicated information clearly and timely, and was very courteous. I was especially impressed with his clean up, he hardly left a mess and took the time to make sure there were no stray bits of concrete out on the street. I was very impressed.

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.

1 review 6/11/2017 Professional, efficient, and affordable. They also have an ingenious billing system that allowed me to control expenses and monitor day to day activities. This was critical to me as I live four hours from the project site and could not check work in person. I received daily reports on status and costs. Buying blocks of time, and paying for materials in real time, keeps the project costs from getting out of hand. My project consisted of 1. removing dry rot from leaking French doors in second floor bedroom and on balcony, 2. replacing subflooring and balcony deck, 3. removing and replacing replacing a wooden gate, 4. removing and replacing garage side door, 5. painting deck, gate, and interior molding, 6. removing French doors, and 7. hauling away debris. I will definitely hire Spectrum again!

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.

I have had Khalden do extensive deck repair work which involved splicing support beams and lateral planking into existing structures. Very involved and intricate. He did a superb job. I also had Khalden custom build a bookcase/file cabinet complex for my office that was superb. Khalden pays attention to detail and is a true craftsman.

After buying a serious fixer-upper, I hired Michael Mcguire to help with me pretty much everything. The first two projects were a a full kitchen and bathroom remodel. As a first time homeowner, he went above and beyond helping me understand my options on a budget without sacrificing quality. I was so happy with his work and level of service, I hired to him back to redo my bar and build a deck in my backyard. He is my go-to person for all future projects.

The whole process was a good experience. Kevin has a great personality and is easy to work with. Kevin took the time to explain the pros and cons for the material for deck I was requesting. After receiving the quotes for the job we arranged the start date and a few days after I had a well built and good looking deck in my backyard. Good communication, on time, on budget, good result and friendly "can do" attitude.

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.
