Ron did a wonderful job!!! I had a wooden porch in the backyard that was falling apart. Ron replaced it with a composite decking and metal railing. He made an effort to lower the cost of the project. The new porch looks amazing! I strongly recommend him!

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.

Maria removed all the popcorn ceilings in our house, sanded the ceilings, patched them, sanded again, skimmed, sanded, painted then sanded again then final coat of paint. At least that is what I observed. She probably did even more. She also patched the walls for us which was very kind. She came and worked on a Sunday at short notice too and was so friendly and positive when I felt quite bad changing the schedule on a number of occasions. So she hasn't even got to the porch addition yet. But one thing is clear I am done looking for a contractor. Maria and her team are hopefully working at this house until it is done. It's not only that she is professional and does an awesome job but she also has a fresh modern taste and gives sound advise. I am sure when she does finally get to the deck its going to be like something out of a magazine. Highly recommend her!

Mike remodeled my back porch to make it more like a cabana for the new pool & spa. Replaced siding, windows, and electrical. Installed new insulation, dry wall, ceiling fan, air conditioner, flooring and sliding glass door. Mike had great ideas that I never thought of. Turned porch from a yucky & uncomfortable storage area into a place for entertaining and relaxing. Friends and family love it as much as I do.

Came on time. Clean and professional personality. He has done a lot for me for his two different visits as a new homeowner. I made a list what I needed to be done and he performed all the required work. He went to the Hardware Store and shopped for the best materials for me. He assembled; added shelves, porch lights, grab bars; added more lightning in the garage; put up a new shower door, just name all the things you want and he will fix/repair at reasonable cost. No regret. My dad was also retired MCB 4 Seabee and he did a lot of mprovements at their house. When I saw Mr. Fred on the website, I chose him because of his experience and you only those military (Seabee can do!) . You will be happy that you hire him, Mr. Fred.

I had a porch swing built, painted and hung and Paul did an amazing job. He was on time, friendly and charged less than his estimate. I love my swing and will definitely hire them again!

Ivan did a fantastic job working on a small project in our enclosed porch/office/extra bedroom. He worked hard to make sure his work was seamlessly integrated with the work already there. He is quite skilled. Now the room is beautiful and when family started arriving this week for Thanksgiving there was some squabbling over who got to stay in the room. As soon as my parents arrived they started giving me another list of things that need to be fixed so I am sure we will be hiring him again soon.

This handyman saved me from a nightmare. An unexpected water leak required the destruction of my side yard and concrete carport by some other hired crew. The water pipes were repaired, however the carport was restored incorrectly and even left my garage door un-closeable. Their careless mistakes left behind called for big home improvements; I didn't even know where to start. Enter Craig from C&C Home Repairs! His solutions were so well thought out, not only calculating functionality but a pleasing aesthetic as well. He works cleanly, at normal times of day (not waking me up at dawn to the buzzing of a saw), and communicates clearly. I have my porch, carport and garage back in WAY better condition than before all due to his efforts!!! Thank you C&C Home Repairs!

Philip was awesome! He arrived and was very detailed in his explanation of how to fix our front porch light. We had been left with a mess from the previous home owners. Philip not only fixed the light but rewired an existing outlet that was previously installed incorrectly. He explained everything and walked me through the process. We plan to use Appleton Electric again and again.

I have known Paul for years and he is the only person we trust for our handyman needs. He is not only reasonably priced and knowledgeable, but he can fix/build/reorganize almost anything. Just to name a few projects: built a mounting block for my 17 hh horse, installed a Murphy bed plus custom headboard he designed, constructed a screen porch, exchanged countless toilets, helped me move four times, and organized my house/garage on numerous occasions. He is on time, professional, and a wonderful person to keep in your back pocket for your big or small projects.

Joel gave me an estimate based on our telephone call and a time frame which suited our needs. The day before the job, he came to the house and revised the bid to which we agreed. I had not given him the whole picture. He came the next day with his brother. They spent the whole day grinding and sanding until the porch was transformed. They patched cracks and filled holes. They put in extra time to do the job. Excellent work. Excellent work ethic.

Mark and Nick Fletcher built a front porch for my wife and I, including a ramp for ease of access. They gave me my quote exactly when they said they would (which is not always the case with contractors), and the price was reasonable. They quickly acquired materials and set to work within a few days of providing the quote. The work took a bit longer than I think they expected, but that was not their fault, because there are considerable obstacles around our home, and distractions. They compensated for it by working late, and did so without complaint or prodding from us. They dealt with a dozen dogs during construction, being underfoot, and my crazy dad distracting them constantly. The materials they selected were high-quality, and they used excellent hardware to construct the joists. No corners were cut, and the overall appearance of the porch is better than I imagined, and additionally, it is incredibly sturdy and lines up perfectly with our existing threshold to the main entrance to the house. No loose screws, no jagged edges, no stone left unturned. On top of all of that, Mark and Nick are extremely friendly, trustworthy, and they are detail oriented. Communication was excellent, and I never felt that they strayed from the original plan, other than making timely suggestions that improved my original ideas. We went a hair over budget, but again, that was not their fault. We discussed some items that I didn't even think of, but knew immediately were necessary, and we mutually agreed to go over. HIRE THESE GUYS!!! You will not be disappointed. I plan to use their services again when we get ready for a second deck, in our back yard. Thank you Mark and Nick!!!! It was absolutely a pleasure to meet you guys, and we can't wait to enjoy our deck!!!

Mr. Love was great. He installed a 3 way timmer switch for my porch light. He was quick and clean. I would recommend him. I have also used him in the past for my hardwood floor and base board and it included painting.

I hired Eddie Rose to install a granite porch for my wife and I in fall 2015. His work was very clean and reflects his many years as a professional stone mason. He also added a concrete pad and trim before we installed our artificial turf. The work he did was above par. We look forward to coming home each day to see the new look. I would hire Eddie again as he was very personable, hardworking and willing to please.

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.
