David Gomes was a life-saver! Another service provider that was crawling under our deck broke a PVC pipe and water was pouring out. We had to shut down the water to the house. My wife was busy calling plumbers. David responded almost immediately to the bid request. His price was quite fair and he drove up during rush hour. He fixed the leak in a most creative way, as there was no local hardware store open. His ingenuity allowed us to turn the water back on less than 3 hours after the break occurred. I would certainly use David again.

For a home I sold they came in and quickly and professionally rebuilt and painted a deck, put in a hot water heater, put in new closet doors, and patched and painted a wall in the living room. Fast. Reasonable and Fair Priced. Professional. Doug Jones Cal BRE 00979517 Buyers Realty

It has been a pleasure to work with Gustavo. He quoted a reasonable price on pouring some piers for me, and he did everything as agreed and more. I would hire him again, definitely.

Chris did an absolutely tremendous job on our front and back Ipe decks. We had made the bad mistake of having them stained a few years back with a dark heavy stain, which was starting to flake off. Chris painstakingly sanded the existing stain off and finished the decks with Ipe Oil. They now look "like a piece of furniture". He was extremely punctual, trustworthy, a delight to work with. Could not recommend him more.

Ours was a fairly big job (1500 sq ft, 3 BR 2-1/2 BA modern condo with super high ceilings) with many details and different types of painting; exterior deck, exterior touch ups, all interior walls, kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets, closets, etc. They did it all and they did it flawlessly. Everything looks perfect and excellent pricing-wise.

Diego is very conscientious and only does the work right, even if it is more effort. When re-staining my deck, he carefully checked the condition of each deck board and replaced all that were weak. The whole deck is now good for several more years. He is a real pro and his prices are extremely fair! Diego did such a great job on my deck that I hired him to paint the entire exterior of my house. It came out absolutely beautiful. His attention to detail is amazing. He patched every board that needed it, sealed around the windows, repaired a rotten section on a beam, painted the house with three colors: base, trim and accent,and used nothing but the best material. Again, he was very professional and his price was extremely fair!

Dan was great to work with. He performed a a quick inspection and estimate - arriving at the stated time, and then did the work the next day. He repaired some structural issues with my deck, and did a bit of inside wood repair as well. He was quick and efficient, and the work was an excellent value.

We chose David and his team to tear down and replace a tired old deck, but with a new footprint. Work Quality: This was not just great workmanship, but actual craftsmanship. The detail and precision of the joints, cuts, spacing of the boards was meticulous. The fact that there are no seams, no uneven gaps, and no screws visible on top of the deck surface is amazing. Professionalism: The crew showed up each day on time! They wore company logo'd shirts and jackets and had company vehicles. Each day the sawdust and construction mess was cleaned up by sweeping or blowing, all tools were stacked and out of the way, wood was piled up neatly so the area looked clean and tidy each night before they left for the day. There were no remnants of lunch litter or water bottles scattered in the yard. They even had their own portable restroom delivered so there were no muddy boots tracking into our bathroom. That was something that indicates a concern for the workmen by the company. Happy workers are good workers. Responsiveness: We are able to discuss any questions or issues that came up during construction with the team. Since we were installing lighting in the stairs, there were some logistics involved and they were more than happy to help or provide info. Between the ability to contact David by email or text at any time, I never felt that I was out of the loop on any aspect of the project. One thing that was especially impressive was that the first rain day I received an early morning email confirming that the team would not be on site that day. That NEVER happens! I assumed they wouldn't be working but to get actual notification before the start of the day was above and beyond and very much appreciated. Value: I can say in complete honesty that this is the first project ever that we felt we got more than what we paid. The price was very fair to begin with, but the additional touches exceeded any expectations. For instance, the lack of surface screws was not something we requested or even thought to ask about. It could have been an option that was brought up as an additional charge, but it was just done, included in the original pricing. Extremely pleasant surprise! Punctuality: On time each day, and worked full days. If there was a rain day expected, it was communicated. In summary, this is a company that we can wholeheartedly recommend without any reservation. Estate Scapes will be our go-to for all things landscape or hardscape related. The entire experience was excellent. I will update with photos shortly.

Where to begin, Nick owner of Klein’s Custom Woodwork. Has serious passion for his craft. It’s rare nowadays to find good people that are into building decks, patios, wood finisings, and a craft for building anything you need for your home. I can say that I purchased a new home in Marina, Ca. Spoke to Nick about what I needed done in my empty back yard. His creative mind on what I was looking for went from a dream to a reality. He was very detailed, meticulous, and knew exactly what to do when it came to building my new patio deck. Klein’s Custom Woodwork is worth his time and craftsmanship to attention to detail. I would recommend him for any wood work you need done at home.

We had a fully overgrown small backyard with a nightmarish concrete drain dominating our our area and diminishing our enjoyment options. Victor was able to help design and subsequently build a the perfect yard extension and then integrate the drain with a perfect deck and stamped concrete patio. The efforts were fun and collaborative and workmanship exceeded expectations. All of this was completed during a busy construction season and on time. We are incredibly pleased and would recommend without reservation.

Job: replace cross beams under deck, replace foundational post that supports the garage, and fill gap in the corner of the roof to keep critters out. ER Construction came right away to do the job and provided the best solution economically. ER could stand for EXPRESS, RELIABLE! I would definitely call these guys to do more construction work in the future. Highly recommended.

We are very pleased with the repair and rebuilding of our deck as done by David Segura and his great crew. Rotted wood all was removed and replaced with fresh redwood, under-pinnings now are secure and strong and treated to keep mildew from destroying it again. The fresh new redwood deck is beautiful. We are very proud to show it off to our family and friends. We definitely will contact David again should we need similar work done, and will recommend him to friends, as well.

Working with Bruce and Cal Preserving was a great decision! The team showed up when they said and approached the job with efficiency and quality. They cleaned, sanded, and stained my yard deck, railing, and stairs all in just 3 afternoons. Pricing break down was clear on their estimate and very competitive to other contractors. I would definitely recommend and go back to using Cal Preserving for future jobs!

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.
