Ralph built a deck and fence for me about a month ago and the work was absolutely great. His prices were very reaonsonable and he did the job in a very short time. By far, one of the easiest and nicest contractors to work with. I would recommend him to anyone as he finished the job on-time and the deck and fence looked great!

Matt was very professional and a good communicator. He did some minor construction on our stairs and resealed our deck, and did a great job. We would definitely hire him again.

Hector and his team were efficient and thorough with the work I needed down on my deck. They even completed the job in less time than quoted. I would definitely hire his team again for future jobs.

Renato was very responsive to texts and emails, showed up on time, and was always friendly and professional. He and his helper did a good job with the handyman tasks we needed done. Their paint job was not perfect, which is why I'm not giving 5 stars, but overall a good experience.

I had a great experience using Victor to clear coat my deck and the wood exterior of my house. Aside from doing a great job on the project at a fair price, Victor was very responsive throughout the process and was proactive in keeping me up to date on the progress (sending me photos during the workdays of the job). I'd gladly use him again on my next painting project!

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.

These guys were outstanding. We are very picky and detail-oriented, and they met and exceeded our standards. They were incredibly easy to work with. Honest, polite, on time, flexible. The quality of the work was impeccable, and the price was very fair. They painted the exterior of my house in San Francisco, and now I have contracted them to refinish and paint my back deck. I would highly recommend Eduardo and Jose Paz's Painting

Right in time for New Years! I have a whole new kitchen, dining and living room, 2 remodeled bathrooms and a whole new backyard with a new deck, huge hot tub, and pergola. Eli and his team worked day after day and extremely hard to complete this project in the time I wanted. They did everything professionally and made my dreams come true. They took care of everything. I did not need to do anything at all, which is perfect because I wanted a company that would take care of everything. From the day I signed the contract, I knew what was going to happen weekly and always felt comfortable asking Eli or calling up the office to have any questions answered. I was never turned down or made to feel like I was being problematic (which I am sure I was!) but everyone there continued to impress me day by day with how thoughtful, kind, and clean they were. I really believe in life you get what you pay for, and with Eli and GMBC Construction, I paid and got much more then I actually paid for. The experience, and now the finished product is just fantastic. Thank you, thank you to everyone at GMBC Construction!

Thanks, Amilcar! The deck and teak outdoor furniture look amazing. After years of being tortured by the elements, you were able to bring the wood back to look new. It was a pleasure meeting you as well.

I had a great experience working with Eddie building a 250 SF deck in my backyard. I can't say enough positive things about him. His bid was very competitive yet workmanship was of the highest quality, he managed to be very responsive despite handling other jobs and he demonstrated deep expertise in his craft. I would hire him again in a heart beat and would recommend him to my friends. He finished the project on budget, on time and lets and left the job area clean after he finished.

Eduardo was fantastic! He was on time, totally professional and efficient. He created a small deck and cover for my outdoor tub... worked around an odd shaped deck, created a gorgeous cover that was much better than the one I had in mind. He was friendly to have around, and I will definitely be hiring him again!

Mauricio did a perfect job in our deck very fast and super neat and with attention to detail. He first gave us a quote, then when he came to do the job he noticed a lot more rotten parts and had to increase the scope of work, but handled everything professionaly

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.
