Arisel was precise, on time, exceptionally professional and thorough. Great personality and clearly a master of his trade. He put together two IKEA day beds that were hugely complicated and involved - with full authority. Highly recommend.

Matt is amazing! He is friendly, responsive, and personable. He helped us replace a dilapidated fence for our home. Our fence separates a busy street and sidewalk from our yard and we didn't want everything to be exposed for too long during construction (we live in SF city). Not only did Matt do a fantastic job at a reasonable rate, he went the extra mile and got the job done within one day! Our new fence is sturdy and looks great. Matt is a very skilled craftsman. He hauled away the old fence and even came back a week later to make sure all the old junk was fully removed from our yard. Five stars. Highly recommended.

Ricardo was our handyman while we lived in Belmont, Redwood City and even when we moved to Alamo, California. He was an excellent carpenter, handyman and Jack-of-all-trades ... always accommodating and cheerful. He was punctual, reliable and very creative in home repair challenges...always thought "outside the box". Ricardo was always a pleasure to have around while working on projects in our homes. We wish we could have taken him with us when we moved to Eagle, Idaho -- we really miss him!!!

Renato and his team did a fantastic job with our master bedroom and bathroom. The paint job was very meticulous and they covered 500+ square fee in one day. I would highly recommend Hilux for a fast, cost effective paint service.

Jasper did an excellent job of designing and building my computer desk and storage unit. On our first meeting he was able to translate the description of what I wanted into a drawing with measurements. On his next visit he confirmed the measurements and proposed workarounds for dealing with challenges such as the room's molding as well as taking a paint sample to match the color of the unit with the room. The results were better than I expected. The unit truly looks built-in with molding around the top that matches the molding in the room. Though it's a floor to ceiling unit, it does not feel overbearing due to the design, color and seamless attachment to walls and ceiling. He was easy to work with when making adjustments in order to accommodate placement of my computer equipment. When I specified what I wanted, I got exactly that. Jason is an extremely competent woodworker and very fast executor. I would highly recommend him.

When Juan and I began to negotiate the cost of the work that I needed done, he quoted me an hourly rate. I balked at this; stating that I preferred to pay by the job - and that way, he would be free to work as quickly or as slowly as he pleased. He stated to me, in a very cool and yet confident way: "Let me explain to you who I am..." He went on to talk to me about the integrity that he tries to honor; and the business that he is trying to build. He assured me that he is honorable and hard working; and that he would never charge me what he was not due. My soul felt that he should be trusted...and what an gift it has been to experience the quality of his work, his kindness, his business acumen, and the wisdom of his words. He is a licensed contractor, an honorable man, and a master of his craft.

Dan was very communicative and professional. He worked with my on my busy schedule and was very accommodating. I was concerned of damage to my window frame due to a large leak. Dan inspected the window and found the issue at hand. We respected his professional opinion and followed his advice for repair. He repaired the leak on the spot. We were so impressed with Dan that we will be using him for another project. I highly recommend calling Dan for your handyman needs!

Eddie and his crew did a great job for us. He installed the new siding on our refurbished garage. They did a great job with a lot of attention to detail. More importantly, Eddie is a union trained carpenter with a great work ethic. He was there on time and finished the job at the agreed price in less time than he thought it would take. We will definitely be looking to hire him again for some other work.

My (rather large) project was closer to custom furniture making than to general carpentry, so I spent half a year looking for a woodworker on Thumbtack, Yelp, and where not. Bay Area contractor market being what it is, I found nobody willing even to look at my project. Eventually I expanded my search to carpenters and now I’m really glad that I did. Oswaldo replied promptly, came to our house to discuss the project, offered sensible suggestions and a modest price and made everything in a week, which was faster than I expected and probably at a fraction of price I would pay to a woodworker. Granted, he does not have CNC routers and other fancy tools or even a workshop (he was working in our garage), but Oswaldo has shown me that in hands of a master there is nothing a miter saw cannot do. Oh, and in the evenings our garage was always carefully vacuumed, so nobody would tell that it saw some heavy sawing during the day. I am very pleased with Oswaldo’s work and highly recommend his services.

Frank was great. He came out ahead of doing the job just to make sure the price he quoted was fair and reasonable, and then did the job when he said he would and in the time he thought it would take. Both he and his son were professional, neat, and very skilled. I'm very satisfied both with Frank as well as with Thumbtack.

If we could give Wise Stage Remodeling more stars than 5, we would! We hired Wise Stage Remodeling to finish a very difficult and messy remodel in San Francisco (single family house). A previous contractor messed the remodel up beyond belief and left it in shambles, while we were out of town. None of the new contractors were even willing to consider taking this job and we were desperate. Sergey from Wise Stage Remodeling responded to our request via Thumbtack. He gave us a very reasonable estimate and timeframe to finish the project. Sergey and his team (especially Arthur, his carpenter, who's amazing with cabinets, doors, tiling) were extremely diligent and hardworking. They remodeled the kitchen from top to bottom, as well as finished remodeling the rest of messy unfinished projects of all levels of difficulty throughout the house. Sergey and Arthur pulled us out of a very messy situation and made the impossible possible. They were both incredibly responsive and accommodating throughout the entire construction process: hardworking, honest, and polite guys. Their attention to detail and ability to face our complex construction issues alleviated a lot of stress and pain on our part. We simply lucked out w/hiring Wise Stage Remodeling. We've been through a number of remodels with a few of our properties in San Francisco, and never had a more pleasant experience with the contractors. We would absolutely, without a doubt, recommend hiring Wise State in a heartbeat!

Aaron is an excellent carpenter. He built a floating bookcase for us which fits into a nook of our study. Right from the start it has been a great experience working with Aaron. He was always on time for every visit and easily accessible via emails or on phone. We weren't sure whether we wanted a floating bookcase or just book shelves; Aaron was able to present mock up views of both and offered suggestions which finally convinced us to choose the floating book case. Even when it came to selecting the varnish for the bookcase, he wasn't convinced if the color we selected would look good so he made a trip to our house to show the sample varnish and even brought additional colors to select from. We ended up selecting a different color which looked better and blended in with our study. We were glad that Aaron had a keen eye for details. The installation went without any hitch and was done quickly. We were very impressed by Aaron's work.

I hired Mike originally to remove a deck and slider and put in french doors and a juliette balcony. Then had him do 2 4x6' windows. The work has been great and he is easy to work with. Now looking at him doing our guest bath and then the master bath. Saw his work on other projects prior to hiring and it was quality work well done. He has been responsive with email and text progress updates and his billing is spot on the quotes no surprises. Job well done so far!

I love my new kitchen that Emmery Construction and Renovation did! The job went smoothly, without any problems. It was finished under budget, under the time projected and they even had time to put in a new bathroom vanity, mirror and new light fixture in my guest toilet! I loved how John completes your job, before moving his crew onto someone else's. I had a bad experience with my last kitchen remodel with another contractor. On that previous remodel, the contractor was trying to juggle several jobs at once, and would constantly make excuses as to why he wasn't working on my job–very frustrating and it took weeks longer than he quoted me. This time, my experience was a dream come true! John even had a designer on his team, that took all of my ideas and turned them into a cohesive and beautifully finished project–better than I had ever dreamed it could be! It was a pleasure working with his whole team! I'll be calling Emmery Construction & Renovation again, as soon as I'm ready to redo my master bath! It was a GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!

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.
