If you want to have your IKEA furniture assembled properly and to last, then hire Robert and his crew. They actually know what they are doing and have all of the right tools (laser levelers, power tools and other doo-dads carpenters use). IKEA is a budget brand but with the right installation it looks like a million bucks! I could not be happier with our cabinets that are now in our new Bliss Crystals showroom in Temecula. Wow it is just spectacular and it would have been a shabby mess would we have tried to do it ourselves. There are times to call in the pros and pony up the $ to have it done right. And I'm so glad I did! Thank you to Robert and Company. Will call them again when we expand our store...

I originally hired KC to assemble a set of office cubes in my new location. What I got was far more! I have no knowledge of cubicles and was truly losing my mind when Keith stepped in and literally saved my sanity and my office relocation. He became my Facilities Project Manager and facilitated all that was needed, from electricians (which he vetted himself and got quotes. I had to do nothing) to dealing with my onsite vendors such as IT and AT&T. Had I not found Keith i have no idea what would have happened! So truly grateful! His work was flawless, and he kept all of the other vendors on task also. I have already made plans to have him do additional work at my new space. He went so far above and beyond that it's hard to even believe. A true professional.

Mo is an amazing talented carpenter. He built me a walk in closet from scratch in 3 days. He provided the design and ideas on how to make best use of the small space I had available & I couldn’t have been happier with the results. He is very professional and precise in his work and very reasonable in pricing. I am so impressed with quality of his work that I am having him make me a custom built vanity and bookcase as well. He also installed my hardwood flooring and cabinets which were very complicated to install. I highly recommend his services. Be sure to give him advance notice though as he is extremely busy but the results are definitely worth the wait.

I hired Hugh to paint my Living & Dining rooms. I discovered that he is an artist with a designer's eye! He helped me select a classic color and the rooms look beautiful! Being experienced in the business, he helped me organize my projects and recommended an outstanding Electrician & Carpenter team who installed recessed lighting, hardwood floors, crown moulding and baseboards. In addition, he has painted my kitchen & bathroom, transforming their appearance! I am so pleased with his work! He pays attention to detail and insures that jobs are done right the first time! He is trustworthy and demonstrated leadership qualities when the teams were coordinating their work. Hugh is also a Handyman and I have a few more projects I'd like completed around the house. Of course he'll be the one I hire! His prices are very fair for the quality of work.

I needed a new fence carpenter to build a fence and add a wall inside my home that was being remodeled. The fence looked beautiful and the wall was done well so I decided to ask if they also did bathroom or kitchen remodeling work. Bill said that he had a wide range of work he could perform or manage for me so I started small and had them redo a small bathroom. The bathroom work included cabinets, bathtub, shower walls, new travertine floor and painting. After the bathroom was complete and saving up for a few weeks we moved on to the kitchen. He assisted in the design and layout with the designer. The work took several weeks but it was beautiful and was much better than the drawings. After several months of work on my home, it is perfect with there help. I can't thank them enough and will pass there info on to friends.

Bob is a fantastic Carpenter, a perfectionist and a real craftsman. He came out to fix my kitchen drawers which had broken apart, he wound up re-building them from scratch. Everything was completed on schedule and within budget, I would hire him again for anything to do with wood.

Aaron works diligently to make sure your project is completed on time and within budget. I have hired him to do several projects around my home including fixing toilets, fixing leaky pipes in the bathrooms, installing kitchen backsplash, he built an entire indoor dog run for my three dogs, installed lights outside, and fixed a few electrical outlets too. He is a master carpenter and great with wood projects. Can't recommend him enough. Quick, professional and just an overall nice guy. Hire him you will be thrilled with his work!

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.
