We wanted to replace our very old iron railing on our stairs with custom railing of both iron and wood. From the moment we contacted the company, to receiving the estimate, and then the work itself (all done by Brian specifically), the total project took about a week! Our stairs were out with the old and in with the new in just 2 days! Brian did a fantastic job with his woodwork on the stairs, as well as valued and listened to our goals. What impressed us the most was not only the quality of his work, but his professionalism! We've hired many workers on our home in the past, and Brian was the ONLY one who would keep everything around his work area clean and neat and would actually clean up ALL areas before leaving the job each visit! That was a HUGE plus for us. We can't thank Brian at Aloha Handrails enough and definitely recommend this company to everyone!

We hired Stephen to assemble IKEA furniture and I could not have been happier with his professionalism. He arrived on time and was incredibly polite, patient and meticulous about his work. I feel very lucky to have had his help and would definitely hire him for any future home projects.

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.
