Steve proved himself to be an excellent choice for me to have some home improvement work taken care. Within 10 minutes of placing my request on Thumb Tac, I had received a response from Steve with an estimate of how much it would cost to do the work site unseen. Within an hour he was onsite looking over the project; we were able to quickly negotiate a fair price to have the work done with Steve including the demolition and haul-away of a weathered wooden shed and the spa pump, heater, and other items stored within it. My primary request was to have a somewhat large, very weathered wood deck demoed and hauled away to a landfill/dump. Steve turned out to be an easy-going, personable, and exceptionally hard worker very knowledgeable in many areas of home improvement, construction and demolition. He carefully and expertly executed the demolition and haul away of the entire wood deck. – A lot of work. Steve worked his a$$ off to demo the deck and haul it away in an efficient, timely, and proper manner. As a result, I asked Steve to also provide a power wash to my house paying special attention to my very weathered front walkway pavers. Throughout the project Steve followed through on every promise and worked especially hard to bring out the best with the power washing of the pavers providing an exceptionally noticeable improvement after removing a lot of baked in dirt, grime, and fungus. There were a couple of times when Steve could not make it back to continue the work at the agreed upon time due to unexpected ‘life’ events, which I understand happens to all of us. However, even given a couple of unexpected hold-ups, he made it to the site every day, kept me in the loop with what was going on, and gave me a discount to compensate for the inconvenience and hold-up in getting to the site due to these interruptions. He went so far as to show up on a Sunday to coat and seal the newly power washed front walkway pavers. All-in-all, it was a great experience working with Steve. He was reliable, a hard worker, very proficient and knowledgeable, and very competitively priced. I look forward to having him back for other home improvements in the near future. Thanks for a great job, Steve! -Bob

Jose did a great job on our pool deck. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to pool regulations. He and his crew completed the job quicker than expected and we couldn't be more happier. We got a few quotes and he gave us a very reasonable price. We decided to go with him because we were impressed with his professionalism, knowledge and fulfilling all our requests.

I was very happy with him. He did an excellent job painting the interior of my home. Due to tall vaulted ceilings it was more of a job then I could do. He completed the job with much better outcome then I could have ever done. I will hire him again.

EXCELLENT experience!! If we could give Jamie 10 stars we would! My husband and I recently bought a new home and needed a new railing installed on our 3rd story outdoor patio/deck (the existing railing had dry rot and termite damage.) While in escrow we decided to get quotes for the new railing; Jamie came over the same day as I requested service and gave us a very reasonable estimate. As soon as we received the keys to our new house Jamie got to work right away. I changed my mind a few times during the construction and he was very accommodating. In addition, we have two young children, so naturally safety is a top priority for us and Jamie made sure to triple check every bolt and even suggested ways to make the railing even safer without compromising the look of the railing. He was very efficient and finished the project in a timely manner. Throughout the entire process he was very professional, was great at communicating, and executed the project to perfection. We absolutely love the way our railing looks and are very confident in it structurely. We will definitely be using Jamie again for other carpentry projects. Do yourself a favor and hire him, you won't be disappointed!

Hired Jose to sand and refinish outdoor deck. He did a great job. He worked on it all day to make sure it was completely sanded down, cleaned and water sealed. Jose was reliable and was good at communicating with us. We would hire him back for other projects.

Our job was to demolish and replace the existing wood patio / balcony that hangs over our garage port. Thomas Lee Cloud hauled away the old one and arranged for the purchase of the wood, the painting, and the assembly of the new deck. The best part was that he knew the city codes very well so that it would pass the city inspection. Many electrical complications arose but TLC was able to solve them.

I hired Cova Construction (Martin) to redo my entire 250 square foot deck. It was a tough project, but Martin was able to do it, and it came out perfect. It came out so good, that I hired him to do my entire kitchen, which also came out perfect. I couldn't be happier; Martin is definitely the only person I will hire in the future. He answered all my questions and did even more than I expected. My wife and I couldn't be happier with selecting Cova Construction.

I found Chris when I was given one of his fliers by a friend who raved about his work. I only deal with licensed contractors, since I've been burned before and there's little recourse when they disappear or change their phone#, plus eventually I have a lot of work I want to get done and I want it all legit in case I need permits,etc... And licenses tell me a person has made the effort to put his time in, learn a trade, and become licensed. It's cost me more money to fix things that have been done sub-par over the years. The paint on my house trim was peeling and I could see the wood was becoming damaged in some areas, which means more money to fix rotted wood, so I was anxious to get the exterior paint done. I shopped around. Chris gave me a fair estimate, plus he was confident in his work and I saw the results at my neighbor's house. I loved that he was very respectful of my house, my yard, clean up, and his work was so clean! He gave me a head's up that some of the wood may be more damaged once he sanded the old paint. He showed me the damaged wood and gave me the option to fix it or not, which of course needed to be done. He replaced some old window sills and window frames. You can't even tell which ones he replaced! Everything matches the other windows! I couldn't be more pleased. After a few weeks I saved some money and was still so excited about the outside of my house finally getting done right that I decided to get some work done in the bathroom. My house is 90 yrs old, the interior walls have plaster not drywall, which many guys don't want to touch, but Chris said "No problem!" it's one of his specialities. He explained what's involved, wrote an estimate, and now I've got one bathroom done and it looks AWESOME! My husband is impressed. We're going to have a dinner party with friends to celebrate. Chris is a solid guy with good old fashioned work ethic. We have only great things to say about his work! After the new year we're going to save money and have a deck built so my husband can barbecue outdoors. Thumbs up times a hundred!

Scott and Victor were great to work with. We hired them to replace our first floor tile, baseboards, and paint half the interior walls. They also fixed an unexpected water leak during the tile project. Towards the end of the tile project, we decided to have them replace our patio deck and build a vegetable garden box. They were responsive, polite, showed up everyday, addressed every question and request we had. We will definitely hire them again for future projects, since they pretty much do everything.

We had just bought a new house and wanted to renovate a bedroom and bathroom that had not been permitted by the previous owner. We hired Ronald Butler and his crew because out of all the contractors we interviewed, he seemed the most knowledgeable and apt to delivering the services we were looking for. From the outset of the renovation, it was clear that our new home was going to need much more work than we anticipated. The discoveries we made when opening up walls, prompted us to change our scope of work. We were now facing new electrical, plumbing, foundation, roofing, and flooring among other things. My wife and I were nervous about the changes because of the financial ramifications, and with two small children, the impact it will have on our living conditions for the next several months. Fortunately for us, we found the right contractor. Ronald's no nonsense advice, professional guidance and expert workmanship has made this process a lot more manageable than we thought. The project included in addition to the aforementioned scope: new floor plan, new HVAC, new tankless water heater, high efficiency appliances for a new kitchen, solar tubes, new electrical sub-panels, two new bathrooms, with new tub, all new fixtures, toilets and sinks, new laundry room, energy efficient recessed lighting throughout the house, new copper piping, gas piping, new electrical conductors, recepticles and switches, new windows, interior and exterior doors, new drywall and paint, new insulation, and a new 400 square foot deck. There were many challenges throughout this project, and Ronald and his crew met and overcame each one in a timely fashion, with courtesy and professional tact. My wife and I feel very fortunate to have found Ronald. He has not only delivered us a completely renovated home, that meets all of our contemporary criteria with all the new energy efficient home options, but he has also given us peace of mind and security for us and our children in an ideal home for many years to come. ....photos coming soon.

We had a great experience with John, starting with how responsive he was and then being here when he said he would be. Not so much the norm with others we have dealt with. We started with a deck, then another deck and ended with bathroom remodels. John always gave detailed and accurate proposals and bills and kept to the costs to what was quoted.

We hired Jeff from Rick Dorn Constrution to install some kitchen cabinets in our remodel. We had cabinets picked out already and he recommended some others of better quality for less. Installation took 2 days and he cleaned up after himself. He also pointed out some other things that should be fixed on our project which was greatly appreciated. We would work with them again.

Mr. Hatfield refinished our deck. There were structural concerns and some termite damage as well as the need for sanding and staining. Mr. Hatfield did a beautiful job with both the structure and finishing. His work ethic is outstanding, working diligently and steadily to completion. His estimate of costs was detailed and his rates were fair. We highly recommend Mr. Hatfield and look forward to working with him on other projects.

Rockbilt Construction built my house from the ground up, it is beautiful! It is built on the incline of a mountain and has a view from the living room sliding doors and a walk on deck along the back of the house. Any wife would love the house and any guy would love the 3&1/2 car / RV garage with 14’ high cealings .

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.
