I had hired David Gomes to dismantle my cot and assemble it again in the bedroom. He arrived on time and brought all the tools required. He does not charge by the hour unlike other handymen/carpenters and charges only according to the effort involved in the job. His charges are very reasonable. He seemed very sincere and he helped me hang a rail in the kitchen for free. I definitely recommend him !

I had a backyard pond & statue removed. Matt and I met first to go over the job. He called to confirm he was coming at the time we had set up and arrived on time. He removed it in less time than anticipated (it was hard work as it was concrete). He went about it in a logical and methodical way and was careful not to make a giant mess in the yard, and remained mindful of the plants nearby. He made it seem so easy, I wish I had done this years ago. I learned Matt is a carpenter as well and I would definitely hire him again.

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!!!

Derrick is a consummate craftsman and finish carpenter. He installed ten interior doors for us and his work was beautiful. He is, in a word, meticulous! Thanks, Derrick, for a great job.

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.

If you are looking for someone to install hardwood floors in your home, look no further. Raul of Razo Wood Company is your man. Raul just completed installing hard wood floors throughout my 3 bedroom house in Fremont, Ca. I couldn't be more happy with his flawless craftsmanship. My floors are beautiful and the transitions from one room to another are seamless. The house looks like a new home with the newly installed wood floor. They are the highlight of my home. Not only is Raul a very talented craftsmen but I found him to be honest, hard-working, sincere and very respectful. He will go the extra mile to make sure you are happy with the results of his labor. You can't go wrong using Raul to install your new floors. He will, not doubt, impress you with his amazing work. - Pamela Y

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.

Oswaldo was amazing. Super responsive, honest, and I think that he enjoyed the work! I was concerned with seismic vulnerability of the brick veneer. I posted my existing mantle on Thumbtack, along with an idea of how I wanted the new mantle to look, and Oswaldo took care of the rest. I picked out the tile and grout, and had Oswaldo paint the walls when he was done. He even matched the crown molding and floorboards! It looks like a new room! We are requesting Oswaldo to do our bathroom.

Matt is an excellent and talented carpenter. I had a wine cellar that needed to be assembled. He responded to my project quickly providing enough detail to make a decision to hire him. Throughout the experience he was very pleasant to communicate with. He was on time and kept me updated from start to finish. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat.

The doors and windows in my house were very old. And I wanted to upgrade to my windows to double pane. I called a few carpenters/handymen and most of them either weren't interested in the job of never showed up. Until I called Dominick. He arrived on time, listened to exactly what I wanted and delivered everything he promised. It's not easy finding a good handy man these days but I will definitely recommend Dominick to my friends and family in the future.

Brian is a fantastic contractor. He was able to see the vision we had for our living room and master bathroom and create them for us. We are so happy with the work. It has really changed our house and how enjoyable the new space is. We would highly recommend him. I don't think there is anything too challenging for Brain. He is a truly skilled carpenter and his work stellar.

There are some times in life when you unexpectedly meet someone truly special, and that happened to my wife and I when we chose John to work on our home. We posted to Thumbtack just looking for a carpenter one day, met John, and ended up with a skilled builder who will be a friend for a long time. He did a kitchen addition for us, handling all the aspects from carpentry through plumbing and electrical and more. One of the most skilled builders I've ever worked with (always focused on "doing it right"), more versatile than most (over the course of our project he did engineering and on-the-fly design as well as handling all hands-on tasks), and a genuinely great guy to be around. The whole family was ready to adopt him. My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend John.

Mr. Doherty is super highly recommended by me!!!! The reasons are: 1. Extremely professional carpenter! To be honest, the most professional one I've ever met! (I met a lot of them!)- he made me staircase, wardrobe and fence. But what was even more professional- he fixed mistakes of previous carpenters who told me that it was absolutely impossible to make it in a different way!!!!!!!! 2. Very honest! VERY! 2. Absolutely perfect quality of his work. 3. He is very creative person. I was really pleased that he gave me some professional advice which were very practical and helpful! Thank you Mr. Doherty very much!!!!

    He is very creative and built a garden glass house that we both designed. He did not have to use one nail. He is a master carpenter. It is better to pay a flat fee than by the hour.

    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.
