Tom built a portable deck project for me and my father, and took it upon himself to make every stage, from planning to installation, an absolute perfect example of what good carpentry is! He designed an ingenious hinging system to make the deck easier to move, and even came to my home to help me put it together! I would highly recommend Tom for any carpentry work, as the experience he provided me was professional, and the finished product he delivered was exceptional!

Steve proved himself to be an excellent choice for me to have some home improvement work taken care. Within 10 minutes of placing my request on Thumb Tac, I had received a response from Steve with an estimate of how much it would cost to do the work site unseen. Within an hour he was onsite looking over the project; we were able to quickly negotiate a fair price to have the work done with Steve including the demolition and haul-away of a weathered wooden shed and the spa pump, heater, and other items stored within it. My primary request was to have a somewhat large, very weathered wood deck demoed and hauled away to a landfill/dump. Steve turned out to be an easy-going, personable, and exceptionally hard worker very knowledgeable in many areas of home improvement, construction and demolition. He carefully and expertly executed the demolition and haul away of the entire wood deck. – A lot of work. Steve worked his a$$ off to demo the deck and haul it away in an efficient, timely, and proper manner. As a result, I asked Steve to also provide a power wash to my house paying special attention to my very weathered front walkway pavers. Throughout the project Steve followed through on every promise and worked especially hard to bring out the best with the power washing of the pavers providing an exceptionally noticeable improvement after removing a lot of baked in dirt, grime, and fungus. There were a couple of times when Steve could not make it back to continue the work at the agreed upon time due to unexpected ‘life’ events, which I understand happens to all of us. However, even given a couple of unexpected hold-ups, he made it to the site every day, kept me in the loop with what was going on, and gave me a discount to compensate for the inconvenience and hold-up in getting to the site due to these interruptions. He went so far as to show up on a Sunday to coat and seal the newly power washed front walkway pavers. All-in-all, it was a great experience working with Steve. He was reliable, a hard worker, very proficient and knowledgeable, and very competitively priced. I look forward to having him back for other home improvements in the near future. Thanks for a great job, Steve! -Bob

Jose and his crew did an awesome job. They transformed our backyard from a dirt patch with a rotted deck to a wonderful paver patio and installed a retaining wall. They always showed up promptly on time and finished quickly which was surprising for a such a big job. We will definitely be in touch for future projects!

I have to echo the other 5 star reviews. Platinum removed and replaced rusted broken sewer pipes under my house with all new horizontal piping. A hard and dirty job but their work was truly outstanding. Then they cleaned outside drains which were clogged with roots which had been growing for years. Again, not an easy job but they kept at it until it was done. Joel, Rafael and crew were persistent and efficient. And left my house and outside areas clean. Wouldn't know they were here. Power washed and swept all outside spaces & didn't leave any debris behind. And they showed up when they said they would. Compared to the other plumbers I've had work on my house since I inherited it last year they were the best. Highly recommended!

EXCELLENT experience!! If we could give Jamie 10 stars we would! My husband and I recently bought a new home and needed a new railing installed on our 3rd story outdoor patio/deck (the existing railing had dry rot and termite damage.) While in escrow we decided to get quotes for the new railing; Jamie came over the same day as I requested service and gave us a very reasonable estimate. As soon as we received the keys to our new house Jamie got to work right away. I changed my mind a few times during the construction and he was very accommodating. In addition, we have two young children, so naturally safety is a top priority for us and Jamie made sure to triple check every bolt and even suggested ways to make the railing even safer without compromising the look of the railing. He was very efficient and finished the project in a timely manner. Throughout the entire process he was very professional, was great at communicating, and executed the project to perfection. We absolutely love the way our railing looks and are very confident in it structurely. We will definitely be using Jamie again for other carpentry projects. Do yourself a favor and hire him, you won't be disappointed!

If you are looking for someone who is honest, hardworking, and does a great job-- then Dan Herrera is your guy. He does beautiful wood work. He listens to your ideas and then puts together really nice work. The work he had done for me includes an awesome driveway gate, a complete backyard patio, baseboards and ceiling moldings and more. I highly recommend Dan to all of my friends!

Scott replaced an porch iron railing that was falling apart. We wanted to change the look with wooden fence. We gave Scott some ideas and he came up with some creative work which was much better than I would have imagined. Scott pays attention to detail and is very patient. We changed the design at one point and I could not be happier. Scott is efficient and not pushy whatsoever. We're already thinking of hiring Scott for a couple other projects. You won't be disappointed with Scott.

Our job was to demolish and replace the existing wood patio / balcony that hangs over our garage port. Thomas Lee Cloud hauled away the old one and arranged for the purchase of the wood, the painting, and the assembly of the new deck. The best part was that he knew the city codes very well so that it would pass the city inspection. Many electrical complications arose but TLC was able to solve them.

I hired Cova Construction (Martin) to redo my entire 250 square foot deck. It was a tough project, but Martin was able to do it, and it came out perfect. It came out so good, that I hired him to do my entire kitchen, which also came out perfect. I couldn't be happier; Martin is definitely the only person I will hire in the future. He answered all my questions and did even more than I expected. My wife and I couldn't be happier with selecting Cova Construction.

I found Chris when I was given one of his fliers by a friend who raved about his work. I only deal with licensed contractors, since I've been burned before and there's little recourse when they disappear or change their phone#, plus eventually I have a lot of work I want to get done and I want it all legit in case I need permits,etc... And licenses tell me a person has made the effort to put his time in, learn a trade, and become licensed. It's cost me more money to fix things that have been done sub-par over the years. The paint on my house trim was peeling and I could see the wood was becoming damaged in some areas, which means more money to fix rotted wood, so I was anxious to get the exterior paint done. I shopped around. Chris gave me a fair estimate, plus he was confident in his work and I saw the results at my neighbor's house. I loved that he was very respectful of my house, my yard, clean up, and his work was so clean! He gave me a head's up that some of the wood may be more damaged once he sanded the old paint. He showed me the damaged wood and gave me the option to fix it or not, which of course needed to be done. He replaced some old window sills and window frames. You can't even tell which ones he replaced! Everything matches the other windows! I couldn't be more pleased. After a few weeks I saved some money and was still so excited about the outside of my house finally getting done right that I decided to get some work done in the bathroom. My house is 90 yrs old, the interior walls have plaster not drywall, which many guys don't want to touch, but Chris said "No problem!" it's one of his specialities. He explained what's involved, wrote an estimate, and now I've got one bathroom done and it looks AWESOME! My husband is impressed. We're going to have a dinner party with friends to celebrate. Chris is a solid guy with good old fashioned work ethic. We have only great things to say about his work! After the new year we're going to save money and have a deck built so my husband can barbecue outdoors. Thumbs up times a hundred!

I hired Patrick and Scott Coggins Construction to build patio. They were professional, courteous, fairly priced, and cleaned up after themselves every day and were a pleasure to have in my home. They also over completed handyman projects and they were fairly priced with that as well. I highly recommend Coggins Contruction for any future projects. Their reviews and pictures are what drove to this decision and I'm glad I took it because, I will continue to use them in the future.

Scott and Victor were great to work with. We hired them to replace our first floor tile, baseboards, and paint half the interior walls. They also fixed an unexpected water leak during the tile project. Towards the end of the tile project, we decided to have them replace our patio deck and build a vegetable garden box. They were responsive, polite, showed up everyday, addressed every question and request we had. We will definitely hire them again for future projects, since they pretty much do everything.

We had just bought a new house and wanted to renovate a bedroom and bathroom that had not been permitted by the previous owner. We hired Ronald Butler and his crew because out of all the contractors we interviewed, he seemed the most knowledgeable and apt to delivering the services we were looking for. From the outset of the renovation, it was clear that our new home was going to need much more work than we anticipated. The discoveries we made when opening up walls, prompted us to change our scope of work. We were now facing new electrical, plumbing, foundation, roofing, and flooring among other things. My wife and I were nervous about the changes because of the financial ramifications, and with two small children, the impact it will have on our living conditions for the next several months. Fortunately for us, we found the right contractor. Ronald's no nonsense advice, professional guidance and expert workmanship has made this process a lot more manageable than we thought. The project included in addition to the aforementioned scope: new floor plan, new HVAC, new tankless water heater, high efficiency appliances for a new kitchen, solar tubes, new electrical sub-panels, two new bathrooms, with new tub, all new fixtures, toilets and sinks, new laundry room, energy efficient recessed lighting throughout the house, new copper piping, gas piping, new electrical conductors, recepticles and switches, new windows, interior and exterior doors, new drywall and paint, new insulation, and a new 400 square foot deck. There were many challenges throughout this project, and Ronald and his crew met and overcame each one in a timely fashion, with courtesy and professional tact. My wife and I feel very fortunate to have found Ronald. He has not only delivered us a completely renovated home, that meets all of our contemporary criteria with all the new energy efficient home options, but he has also given us peace of mind and security for us and our children in an ideal home for many years to come. ....photos coming soon.

We have had Nicolet Construction do several projects at our home over the past three years and have been extremely satisfied with all of the results. Giovann constructed a new 4-car garage shop with loft to match our existing home. This included the site preparation, forms, foundation and slab pours, framing and everything else including the roofing and finish/trim work. Giovann also poured several yards of concrete for our driveway and for a terraced exposed aggregate patio/deck by our pool; he designed and constructed a gazebo in the back yard, and a "tool shed" for the garden: created a custom fireplace mantle; and finished some interior trim work that we had not been able to get done. Giovann is not satisfied with "good enough" and takes pride in every project that he has done for us. I have no hesitation in recommending Nicolet Construction for any project you might have. You will not be disappointed!

I would highly recommend Ron's Handyman Service. Ron showed up on time, promptly diagnosed the problem and fixed it. Everything he said went exactly as expected. I am going to have him build us a deck for us next.

January 7, 2017 To whom it may concern: It is our pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for John Duhon of Duhon Construction. John was our general contractor for an extensive remodel. The remodel included removal of first-floor interior walls, relocation of the kitchen to the back of the house, addition of two bath-rooms and an upstairs bedroom, downstairs and upstairs decks, a new roof and flooring, and plumbing and rewiring. This project, which took twenty months, involved coordinating the work of different subcontractors and work crews, consulting with a structural engineer, and working with an interior designer. For work that he did not do himself, John used knowledgeable, skilled, and competent subcontractors, who conscientiously followed project specifications. He effectively coordinated and managed the work crews, who were reliable and courteous. At the end of a day, John left everything in order. A friend commented she had never known a contractor to be so tidy. John was an expert at dealing with City Hall. His familiarity with building codes and with the permitting and inspection process, kept the project on track. When a situation arose in which work was called for that had not been foreseen in the plans, John took care of it--often without charging extra. Communicating with John at the project or by phone and email, was always easy. John was generous with his time and clear in his explanations. When requests or concerns were brought to his attention--for example, when we asked for storage space under the stairs--John willingly complied. John’s services were invaluable. We recommend John Duhon as a general contractor, highly and without reservation. William and Ana Greenberg

After a phone chat, I sent Mr. Duin an e-mail outlining the projects I had in mind. I asked him to help me select those that fit into my quarterly budgets. Together we selected three that needed attention this winter. 1. stabilize a wobbly 6 foot block (gate) wall that was inches from a gas main, 2. Build a short block wall that would hold back dirt from a muddy embankment, 3. Reinforce a swaying wood fence and wrap metal posts with cedar – box style. Mr. Duin and staff did an outstanding job of listening to my needs. I was impressed with their work, quality of materials, work ethics and attention to detail. They were very pleasant to work with and I look forward to our next round of projects. I hope to include the trim/molding (with up lighting) along the ceiling of my front porch which will have to wait until early Spring – due to budget considerations.

    I hired Jorge for a deck and patio enclosure. His price was very competitive and he was very helpful and patient with the design. After two weeks he completed the deck and patio enclosure as promised. My wife and I loved his design and the workmen ship was high quality. The only observation/issue had was he did try and start to work one day at 7:00am. After a quick talked he apologized and resumed work at 9am.

    Jaime did an excellent job replacing the deck. His bid was very reasonable and finished it on time. I bought all the materials and he just did the labor but he buys other stuff needed to keep the project going. He also gave advice on improving the design of the deck. I will definitely hire him again and recommend him to relatives & friends.

    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.
