Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I hire a framer?

First, search for top-rated framers near you on Thumbtack. Then, do the following:

  • Read their profiles and customer reviews.
  • Look at photos of past construction projects they’ve worked on.
  • Check to see if they are properly licensed and certified in your state.
  • Reach out to your top three framers and ask for cost estimates. 

After you’ve completed this research, hire a framer you believe offers fair pricing for high-quality work. Feel free to ask them a few questions before you make your decision. For example, you can ask about their process, their references, the time it takes to complete your project and more.

What is a framing contractor?

A framing contractor is an expert at creating a building’s frame, which is a vital component. It gives your building shape and structure. And a strong frame can help ensure the building’s structural integrity. In order for a major construction project to move forward, the framing must be completed.

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.

How do you find a good carpenter?

To find a good carpenter near you, do the following:

  • Use Thumbtack to find a list of carpenters in your area.
  • Filter the list by selecting a specific carpentry service, such as general carpentry or cabinetry. 
  • Identify carpenters who have high ratings.
  • View the carpenters’ profiles and learn more about their specialties. 
  • Read their customer reviews and look at photos of their past work.

After you get a good sense of their quality of work, make sure the carpenter has the necessary credentials in your state. Then, request several cost estimates for your project(s).

Reviews for Littleton framing contractors
Kathryn P.
Zane did awesome work for us. He helped us figure out a solution to our weirdly designed basement and was quick and thorough completing the framing. He showed up promptly every morning and cleaned the basement every evening before he left. He takes great pride in his work and made sure every detail of the framing was correct. Zane is also a general contractor and he gave us tons of valuable advice regarding every other aspect of finishing our basement. Thanks, Zane!

John did an outstanding job framing my basement. I am an electrical contractor and have worked with a lot of trades people over the years. John is one of the best. His bid was fair. He showed up on time and completed the job in the time allotted. I made several changes to the original plan during the course of the job and they were handled with no problems. The quality of the work was excellent. I highly recommend John!
