David is a very nice and responsible guy. I find him on the website. He is a genius in installing doors. I need a patio door exchanged. After we talked over the phone, he set my reservation immediately. It was the next day David came to my house to measure the door size and accompanied me to choose a very nice patio door. On the day the door was delivered, David spent the whole day installing my patio door. As you know, the patio door is both large and heavy, only the skilled man can install it perfectly. David did it!! He carefully checked the strike plate and the metal piece on the jam where the door latched to make sure it is not too low or too high. David also checked the hinges to look for uneven lines. The gaps all around the door were same all the way. We can’t see any imperfection about David’s work. My patio door was finally installed beautifully. I love my patio door so much that I can’t thank David any more. The price for installing the door is very reasonable. In the end, David gave us free lubricant, paint, brushes, stain marker, etc. David also came and helped clean the patio the other day, for which I appreciated a lot. David is a responsible man for installing doors, if you have any kind of doors for installing, don’t miss such a good man.

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.

Scorpion Services did an amazing job building our deck and gazebo. We are so please they were able to complete the job in 2 days! I would highly recommend them! We plan to use their services for another few projects we have planned throughout this year. Installing grass and sprinkler system will definitely be one of the next projects.

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.

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.

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.

I hired CFI Construction to frame a new 501 sq ft building on our property to be used as a sewing studio. Today, they started and finished framing the walls, and enclosing the entire building with shear panels. Next week, when the trusses arrive, they are going to install them and install roof shearing. I learned of CFI two days ago on Thumbtack. Having observed their work today, I feel like the A team just fell out of the sky into my project. They are phenomenal in every respect. Their work, honesty, and work ethic are models for the construction industry. They have years of experience framing large projects, both residential and commercial. I was humbled that they chose to work on my project. They are not solely a framing company. They can build a building from start to finish, I just happened to hire them for framing. Having enjoyed today's experience, I'm going to use them for more phases of our project. Both the owner of the company (Steve) and one of his sons (Drew) were on site the entire day, as well as their crew of 5 framers. I wanted to write this review now, even though they still have trusses to install and the front porch to frame, because I want other users of Thumbtack to have the same benefit of a 1st class, licensed, professional construction company, as I did today. I strongly recommend that you seek out CFI Construction for your projects. They are the real deal. Thank you Steve and Drew.

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.
