My deck was in bad shape. It has several spindles and deck boards that needed repair. The deck was stained many years ago - the stain was peeling and it looked awful. Harry did an excellent job repairing, power washing, and then staining it with a deck restorer stain. He was neat and cleanup along the way. What a difference! The deck looks wonderful and we are extremely happy.

I was truly impressed by the quality of work, professionalism, and commitment to the project at hand. I took a chance with Marty to build my deck and he shined like no other. Marty is a responsible gentleman that takes his business seriously and loves what he does. He adjusted to my needs, listened to my concerns, and most importantly showed up every single day to work hard. The finish product is amazing and quality in craftsmanship is top notch. Highly recommended… A+++++++++

Mario did a wonderful job and was extremely polite and responsible. After removing all the yard waste, he cleaned up my yard and deck and I didn't even ask. He was truly a joy to work with and I would highly recommend him for any work.

I gave him the task of updating my 1980's home. I needed my master bathroom completely remodeled. He remodeled my master bedroom. Removed a skylight that was leaking and closed up the roof and repaired my ceiling. Removed the fireplace and gave me a linen closet. Ripped up the carpet and installed a new hardwood flood. Painted the bedroom. .My kitchen and dinning room needed to be completely gutted, the wall removed between the rooms and combined into one large room with an island. The cabinets needed to be stripped and refinished. He removed the soffit and added crown molding on the top of the cabinets. Took the refrigerator and pantry cabinet and installed them in the wall to enlarge the kitchen even more. He even changed the entrance from the hallway into the kitchen/dinning from squared off ceiling to an archway which gave the look of a new addition to the home. He knocked out the window in the dinning room and replaced it with a sliding glass door. Built a large back deck for entertaining. Built a gazebo right next the the deck so that I can just walk onto the deck and into the hot tub in the gazebo. Poured a concrete slab.Then installed a hot tub. It looks like a new home throughout. My family and friends would walk into my home and their mouth would just drop open in disbelief. It doesn't even look like the same home. His attention to detail reflects the years of experience this man has in carpentry. When you explain what changes you would like to do to a home. He can tell you what will work and what won't. He brought to my attention that the electrical wiring was not done correctly when my home was built. So I had him correct that as well. Hiring Jacques to update my home was the best decision I ever made. Spending the money for updating and repairing my home was well spent. My home is worth a lot more thanks to Jacques. I would highly recommend him for any size job. He is a one man operation, but gets the job done like a whole crew of men. He constantly keeps the job site clean so the dust is minimal. I would not hesitate to hire this man. He is professional, knows what he is doing and can be trusted with your home.

Thorough, high quality, attention to detail, friendly, timely and excellently priced...these are just some of the qualities of Thiago Pelisson and his team! I was searching for a contractor to power wash and paint/stain house, decks and porch for my mother. She is not accustomed to hiring and as a widow and senior citizen, she was anxious about the finding/hiring process. Her house has cedar shingles, many damaged due to weather & woodpeckers! I contacted Thiago and he promptly got back to me to set up time to meet my mom & see the house to provide an estimate. My mom was SO impressed! Thiago was friendly and took time to take thorough look at the home. He listened to my mom, answered questions and gave her a great sense of comfort and confidence. He provided a detailed quote that including carpenter work, power washing, and materials at excellent price. His team arrived and they were all friendly, efficient, hard working and quality work! The prep work they did on the house to ensure paint didn't get on windows, doors, even the doorbell went WAY beyond expectations! Attention to detail was incredible - every nook was covered. Thiago came to the home twice during the project (approximately 4 days for all phases) to ensure quality. He even had carpenter return to fix area on chimney that she didn't even know had rotted - and he didn't jack up the price to have it done. The house looks great and it was a relief to trust Thiago and his crew. I've recommended him to friends, as has my mom and will hire him again without hesitation!

Jorge did a great job with the repairs to our deck. He replaced some rotting wood with new pieces and was able to match the color and structural pieces as well as could be expected given the age of the deck and paint. I appreciated his professionalism and knowledge about the process and offered specific explanations when I asked questions about the technique used for the project. I would hire Jorge again.

After speaking with several professionals and receiving several quotes, I hired Swift Water Gutters to replace my gutters. I chose Todd not only because his quote was the lowest but because he was very knowledgeable and I immediately felt at ease with him. I was not disappointed. He did excellent work and even took away old pieces of my gutters that had fallen off and were hidden away under the deck! I would highly recommend Todd without reservation to anyone looking for gutter work or any other service that he provides.

I do not even know where to start. If Bruce lived in a different time he would have been a Renaissance man. He possesses a masterful blend of artistry and intellect. The first project he did for us was to redo a simple laundry room. This entailed making templates and installing granite for a counter with a sink and a making a folding table/counter. He had to repair some sheet rock and repaint the room. The results were impressive. The second job he did was design and build a workbench for my art studio. His architectural renderings were impressive. He measured the length of my arms to insure I was able to reach the peg board behind the work bench. He thought to install a length of electrical outlets beneath the lip of the bench. The side drawers are easily opened and closed and the paper trays are large enough to hold my watercolor paper. He is extremely meticulous and his work shows this. He installed glass doors in the basement studio to allow more light to enter the area. When this wasn't sufficient, he cut through the concrete and installed a window (with molding and a sill). His masterpiece was the deck he built for us. With Bruce's skill and our artistic input he produced a showpiece deck. The three tiered deck allows for minimal visual obstruction of the woods below. He installed tiny lights on the stairs to make them safer in the evening. He thought of these. He made a portion of the deck curved to provide harmony with the landscaping. Again, his renderings were precise and impressive. He laid everything out carefully and was always thinking ahead. Our deck is magnificent. He handled all the paperwork for the permits as well. On a smaller scale Bruce hung paintings, our TV, glass doors leading to a bonus room, fixed all our leaky faucets and provided names when we needed a generator and a water softening system installed. Bruce is one of a kind in that he is masterful in so many areas and knows when to get a consult. He is prompt and ready to work hard. He put in very long hours, cleaned up and just did amazing work. I still look forward to having him finish an upstairs loft, a bathroom in our studio and build a space for a china hutch. I feel so fortunate that we found Bruce and would give him the highest of recommendations. He really is a Master of many things! He is also very easy to talk to and to work with.

Stenio and Marcelo were by far the best contractors I have hired. Great quality workmanship, courteous, and always on time. They estimated the work finished at approx 5 days, but worked long to finish a day before that to get my home in order for the thanksgiving holiday. Before I forget and their prices are very reasonable.

We're super happy we went with Kevin at Bentley paint pros. We hired Kevin to stain our deck. Kevin had great customer service and communication skills, he was patient and understanding even when I decided to change stain colors. He gave us a great quote for the job and was always punctual. We've already gotten many compliments on our back deck and front steps. His work is neat and clean. I would hire Kevin again in the future.

Joe was upfront and honest at every step during the process of building our 20x12 deck. I had four other contractors out for quotes and Joe was the only one willing to work with me to get the deck done the way I wanted it done. Even when the weather caused minor problems, Joe was patient and kept within budget. He was there on time and his crew ready to go. Refreshing after having played the contractor game a few times with bad results.

We hired Dan to stain our 2 decks. We highly recommend Dan! His work was done so well - meticulous, beautifully done and he left the work site clean at the end of every work day. We had to work around the weather and Dan kept in touch throughout the project. His price was very reasonable. The final estimate based on the site visit ended up being maybe $20 more than the one we received online. This was very fair because the deck had some finicky spots that would take a lot of time. (This is in contrast to another Thumbtack referral who more than doubled his initial online estimate.) We will definitely hire Dan hire for any future projects.

We truly enjoyed having CJT Development do a job for us, once he was done with the first job we decided to hired them for 2-3 more jobs that we were looking to do. We were very pleased with the work quality, we had a trench dug for outside lighting and after CJT was done he actually left the yard nicer than it was before. CJT prices were reasonable to say the least and it was worth every penny. Super excited to have them come back and start on our deck. We finally found a great company to help us check things off my "honey do list", and my husband is very willing to let them take his list from him...Thanks again CJT Development!

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.
