They were able to turn an eye sore crumbling front porch into a majestic composite front porch. Rome has incredibly skilled people working for him and i thought that he was the most reasonably priced contractor.

Dan is a class act in every way. Extremely professional and reliable. He took care of a difficult job repairing porches on our multi-family income home. He did this amazingly fast. He was always very courteous and concerned about our happiness. I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him regularly. He holds himself accountable as a professional with a paper trail and also as a nice person.

Carlos and his team were prompt, efficient and professional. They painted our wood siding and front and back porches, including a complicated Victorian gingerbread-style porch. They also repaired some rotted window sills and added missing trim. I appreciated Carlos' clear communication throughout the project, and attention to detail. And our house looks fantastic!

Hired Alby's Masonry for repair work in August 2017. They were very cordial, professional and hard working from beginning to end. Alby and company have impeccable attention to detail and a work ethic second to none. The final result was a beautiful patio and walkway. Alby's will be our go-to for future work!

KJ did a great job painting 3 rooms and a hallway in our house that we are getting ready to put on the market. His bid was very reasonable and he stuck to it and during the course of the work he identified a few small things to add on to the project that helped with the overall impact and it did not feel like he was trying to "sell more." His team was very diligent and professional -- we've worked with other painters in the past. And we look forward to having him do work on our new house soon.

Vic did an outstanding job enclosing our porch to make it a three season room. His approach was professional and his quote reasonable. The workmanship on the interior and exterior was excellent and the final result exceeded our expectations. We wholeheartedly recommend Victor Pires Construction.

I hired Mike from Goodman Building Company last year for several projects including a kitchen remodel, converting my three seasoned porch into a larger living room and dining room, and remodeling my main bathroom. I found Mike’s company really pays attention to the small details and took pride in their work. I was very pleased with the workmanship this company provided and even more importantly I found their pricing fair. I have just again hired this company to come do some smaller jobs around the house including new exterior doors and new attic stairs.

I had a dirt pathway going from my porch to my driveway. During winter I would be slipping and sliding on icy water or mud to get to the car. Tim put down patio blocks all the way out from the porch and totally solved the problem and saved me from falling eventually. I also had uneven steps coming off porch and he shifted them so that the steps were safe. I found him to be polite, respectful, very willing to work in any way to solve the problem.

I have known Tony for approximately 15 years. During that time he has built a deck, a porch, recreated a sunroom, tiled a backsplash and multiple floors, painted various structures/rooms, built a greenhouse and most recently a custom fence with gate. He works when he says he will and always hits the agreed-upon budget. I look forward to many more years of trusted improvements to my home.

I was lucky to find Jose through a friend who had him do some work at her house. She couldn't say enough great things about him and I find myself in the same position. We first hired Jose to paint two rooms for us and he did a very neat and professional job. What impressed me most was the pride he takes in his work. One of the rooms had cut outs for two outlets which were slightly larger than the plates covering them so there were small gaps. Jose went and bought larger outlet plates (which I didn't even know they made!) to finish off the wall professionally. He also offered to replace some worn ceiling tiles "while he was already up on the ladder". It was very thoughtful of him and reflects his high work ethic. We then hired him to power wash and stain our two decks and paint the inside and outside of our screened-in porch. He did a thorough job, offering suggestions which were good ideas. Jose communicates quickly and effectively, is reliable, and gets the job done. I highly recommend him.

Long story short….this is the biggest renovation to my home AND THE MOST TROUBLE FREE. My home is about 100 years old and the front wrap around porch needed to be removed and rebuilt. Not an easy job….the footings had to be replaced, the foundation needed to be reinforced, the front of the house had to be jacked up, etc. I contacted Professional Home Builders and Design based upon the reviews found on Angie’s List. I met with several contractors. From the first meeting with the owner, Victor Rosado, I felt that he had a great deal of knowledge and experience and that he was an honest and upright person and that I would be in good hands. I was right. From day one Victor was on-site two times a day…sometimes 3 times, depending on what was going on. And, if at any time I had a question, Victor would get back to me the same day…many times within the hour…I was never ever left hanging, even about very minor issues. And he had great ideas about design, finishing touches and colors. His staff are also great…always out very early and staying until whenever needed…sometimes into the evening. They are very nice and professional and when I would pop out to see what was going on they would show me what they were working on and it was very obvious that they took great pride in their work. There was one worker who used to sing while he was working. I enjoyed listening to this and it also made me feel like he was happy working for this company. My brother and son have been watching the completion of the project and plan to contact Victor for needed renovations on their homes. I highly recommend this company and don’t believe that you’ll be disappointed. I love the finished product.

We could not be happier with Dennis's work....our house looks amazing. It is a late 1800's construction that required a complete lead abatement and restoration. Dennis and his crew stripped it down to bare wood meticulously, replaced clapboards and trim, repaired the back porch and antique garage doors, and today it is a show piece, which the Historical Society wants to include in their next house tour! Dennis was instrumental in guiding us toward the perfect color scheme and design, which admittedly was not our original idea, but in retrospect turned out perfectly....we can't thank Dennis and Pro Quality enough for all they did. Dennis goes above and beyond to get every last detail just right, and his customer's satisfaction is clearly the highest priority. A true master at what he does....

Strawbuilder LLC was recommended to me by a colleague, a neighbor, and a local professional decorator. They lived up to the recommendations. I found the job to be fairly priced, and completed in a timely manner. Strawbuilder LLC arrived on time daily, and each day before leaving the site they spent time to make sure that all materials were picked up, and that the site was spotless. Strawbuilder LLC are polite professionals with infinite patience. They were able to turn my vision into reality and I am very pleased with the results.

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.
