Outstanding company from top to bottom. You can always tell when a person has chosen their job profession because they actually enjoy doing it. They came to fix a water spot on my ceiling and offered a very reasonable price. While they were there, they also decided to patch a hole in my tile and help me install a ceiling fan for free! I will always use and recommend this company for any future home repairs.

Abel is great, he was so helpful with my kitchen project. He’s very professional, on time, friendly, knowledgeable, very responsive in communication, high quality work, and charges fairly. I highly recommend him for demo, junk removal hauling, and handyman services like cabinet installation and tile work.

If you want to have your IKEA furniture assembled properly and to last, then hire Robert and his crew. They actually know what they are doing and have all of the right tools (laser levelers, power tools and other doo-dads carpenters use). IKEA is a budget brand but with the right installation it looks like a million bucks! I could not be happier with our cabinets that are now in our new Bliss Crystals showroom in Temecula. Wow it is just spectacular and it would have been a shabby mess would we have tried to do it ourselves. There are times to call in the pros and pony up the $ to have it done right. And I'm so glad I did! Thank you to Robert and Company. Will call them again when we expand our store...

Joe did some work at my home today and I couldn't be more impressed. His work was excellent. He refinished a wood banister and repaired some drywall. He was punctual, professional, friendly and did an amazing job.... Flawless. I will absolutely be using his services again.

It was a true pleasure to work with Bruce on a custom shelving project. Bruce was a true professional, was great at communicating progress, always showed up when promised and had good attention to detail. He was open to suggestions and provided nice expert advice throughout the project. In an industry full of flakes and unprofessionalism, Bruce was a very refreshing change. Looking forward to hiring Bruce for our next project (in fact we already had him help with a lighting install).

My husband and I needed a company to expand our driveway and adjust/repair sprinklers so we have full coverage because the lawn was dying. I got plenty of bids on this job. DG construction was very reasonable with their prices. David promised me they would start at 7 am the following day. Sure enough right on time the crew arrived at my home. They worked 12 hours straight to get the job done in two days. David went above and beyond to repair this tile that broke from my home and replaced the cylicone around my kitchen sink to prevent leaks. I didn't even ask for his help but he did anyways. This company is very trustworthy and honest. The job was done in a timely manner for the price agreed upon. I am definitely keeping their contact information for any future contractor needs. I highly recommend this company.

I chose to go with Eddie w/Skyline Construction and I'm so happy i did. He installed wood flooring throughout my house & built a beautiful outdoor patio cover . I have used other companies & handymen in the past but was never overly impressed with the timeline of the jobs and some were just plain unprofessional and unattentive to details. Where Eddie outshined & won my future business was his ability to solve issues as they presented themselves (like when my slab floor was very uneven after pulling out the carpet). There was no hesitation on solving it and presenting me options that stayed within our agreed budget. The detail in his work shows he has pride in what he does! My decision on writing this review and recommending Skyline is because people like Eddie are hard to come by... Hes not just looking to make an extra dollar wherever he can; he actually looked out for my bottom line and was very honest in his recommendations. Rafael Garcia La Habra, CA

Tom put a new roof on my Mom and Dad's place. We recently lost my Mom and my Dad passed away years ago. It was a difficult time for me and my siblings. Doing business with Tom was a great experience. He is a professional and his workmanship is exceptional. He met all our expectations. The price he quoted and the time it took him to accomplish it was exactly what he said it would be. He is a man of his word, I highly recommend him for any roofing needs.

Jerry was one of several who bid a job to repair masonry, stucco and paint a wall for me. I am extremely pleased that I hired him. He was punctual and polite in his responses and consistently showed up early or on time for the promised work. His work was neat and respectful of others, as well as professionally done. I definitely recommend him.

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.

Anthony’s Custom Woodworking is AMAZING. I reached out to Anthony regarding a custom blanket ladder I wanted for my living room. He went above and beyond with the design and it fit perfectly with my other decor. He went as far as to match the stain with my other wooden pieces. I reached out to him again to help sand and stain/paint pieces for my newly remodeled back yard furniture. If you need someone that is professional, creates high quality items and is affordable look no further!

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 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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
