Ryan Witt installed patio cover for my home. It was a substantial patio 30x10 ft. Ryan did outstanding work and was extremely professional. Ryan was able to translate our request and anticipate our requirements and produce quick estimate. Ryan was also extremely flexible and able to adjust project as it evolved and was able to adjust and add the finishing touches we requested. Project turned out great. Bottom line: Ryan is 5 star contractor. I would highly recommend him to others. He works well with other tradesmen and with inspectors. Ryan delivers quality product in a timely manner at a reasonable price.

Mike did great work. I have a difficult work schedule which made scheduling work with other handymen challenging, but Mike made it happen. He did some dry wall work and tile work in my bathroom and it looks great.

Todd and Meaghan make a great team. They painted and stained exterior and interior space, helped with color selection, installed floor trim, installed MDF around closet walls, fixed some poorly done work (by my carpenter) by retrimming out ceiling joists (see picture). Family business, good value, contribute good ideas to the project, excellent at communication, and quality of work was beyond expectations. Could not be happier with the results.

It's hard to find contractors and handymen anymore who are reliable, punctual and communicate well. Kyle is one who stands above everyone else in this regard. He was in constant communication with me at all times, managed my expectations well, and arrived exactly when he said he would. His work quality was also excellent, which all made for a very positive experience for me! If you need a master craftsman for work around your home, Kyle is the best person to call.

Scott was the first to respond to our inquiry for a carpenter and showed up on time and did a good job. He installed a new door at one of our rentals properties, as the previous door was damaged by a burglary attempt. We were happy with the quality of work and thought the price was very fair. We look forward to working with him again in the future!

Simply put, I consider Don with Zigler Building Systems an Excellent General Contractor and a man of integrity… “That will handle everything and get it done.” Period. Without wasting any extra time or money. I have also been in the construction industry for a great many years. I know the drill well and understand the process. Don has a passion for attention to detail and an excellent sense of high quality workmanship. My project was substantial covering many weeks. A basement re-construction project which required all aspects of construction. I spoke with Don about the overall plan and my thoughts and considerations, he then went to work. Handling any/all day to day decisions by himself, without the need to consult with me. This was perfect as I placed my complete trust in Don and he completely delivered. I felt completely comfortable with Don in our home. I HIGHLY recommend Zigler Building Systems for ANY construction project. Consider it handled!

Tim did a nearly full remodel on my condo, updating it from the 1970's to a modern look and feel. His work included demolition, restructuring/reframing areas, dry wall, countertops, installation of a washer/dryer (plumbing and venting of it), updating of all plumbing fixtures in bathrooms and kitchen, and a ton of electrical work as well. He is a great carpenter and also very well-rounded as a maintenance guy, knowing how to do plumbing and electric repairs. Although I had to manage the project (he is not a general contractor) and our timeline got a bit behind, Tim got the work done with good results. The place looks beautiful and truly feels like a modern condo. We love it. My only criticism is the project would have gone more smoothly with better communication regarding timeline, expense and expectations. The project was massive and got a bit out of hand. I would have liked a more detailed, discussed and methodical approach to such a project. But I can't complain too much - it gone done and at a fair price. I would recommend to anyone seeking one-off repairs or needing a skilled carpenter for remodeling projects. Tim's great at what he does, very knowledgeable about all things constructioney, and a very nice guy. Thanks Tim!!

We feel very fortunate to have found KC and Heartwood Carpentry. He was able to provide carpentry services to finish a basement renovation project which included finishing doorways, hanging doors, installing custom door jambs and trim around doors and windows. We were impressed by his ability to promptly and professionally provide extremely high quality work at reasonable prices. We have decided to continue to work with Heartwood Carpentry for construction of custom built in shelving and cabinets. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a skilled carpenter able to be adaptable to any job.

Alex Smith will show up at your place when he said he was going to show up, he'll give you a mighty handshake, and then he'll get to work--and he'll work like three men. He has worked for us for over three years, so we know what we're talking about. He comes from a family of carpenters and boatbuilders, and I have to say, building is in his DNA code. He's that throw-back from another time. He's driven, he's talented, and he has a huge heart. Hire him. He'll amaze you; he already has amazed me.

We had recently purchased a home where the previous owners converted the garage into a flex room, however they kept the still functional garage door. We reached out to a few companies for estimates. Chris, owner of the Carpenters had the best quote and he seemed very knowledgable of the task. They did a phenomenal job removing the garage door and replacing it with drywall and insulation, then bricking the exterior to match the rest of our brick home. The job was completed in about 7 days. He even built custom bookshelves on the interior of the new wall. We love it!

John and Company did a fantastic job reframing the garage door opening. It was done with quality materials and workmanship. We met twice , once to discuss ideas, then right before the project began. He went over into detail with his carpenter over the plans for the final look. The work was completed in a day, and will remain solid beyond my years at the house . The quality of work in an investment into the future of my home.

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.
