"Overall, we recommend working with Sergey. Sergey helped us makeover our split San Francisco bathroom. This included a complete overhaul of the floors (new tiles), walls (slightly moving walls, insulation, drywall, painting), some plumbing, and fixtures (new tub, vanity, sink, window, fan, lights). I received quotes from 3 other contractors, and Sergey's quote was competitive, and in the end, he finished the project within the budget we discussed. Sergey is very customer focused; he's responds promptly to emails, texts, and phone calls and will talk through any question you have. Even after the bathroom was completed, he always got back to us on any questions/concerns and he addressed any follow-up touches or fixes as asked. His team also did a good job of cleaning up afterwards. The only feedback we shared with Sergey was regarding project management. He's not always on-site to oversee the project; and while his team or subcontractors were good, we felt the timing/progress and detail of some the work could have used more oversight. The project timeline went over the time we had discussed and planned for, and some work was done more hastily towards the end - which he and his team came back to address with no hassle. Overall, we still recommend working with Sergey. For both your sake, our suggestion is to be specific in your asks and expectations, and be sure to ask specific questions."

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.
