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!

I had an outside hot water heater where the old door just completely fell apart and off the hinges completely. We couldn't afford to buy a custom door right now and so Bob did an amazing "MacGuyver" job and found out a way to fix up and rehang the door using the existing one-and it looks great. We also had a heavy gate that was off its hinges and he knew just what to do to get it back on track. While he was here he even tightened up the other matching gate (even without me asking-very nice). We also had a large front door hanging lantern that my husband could not get to work but Bob figured that out too. And on top of that he was extremely nice, went out of his way to make sure I was happy, and his charges were more than fair. I would definitely recommend him for so many things around the house--will for sure hire him again!

We hired Bruce to remodel and update our bathroom, kitchen and to install washer and dryer hook ups in our 1920 Colonial. The project included new electrical, new drywall, building custom cabinets and doors as well as installing new plumbing. Bruce did not disappoint and the work was excellent and exceeded our expectations. It passed inspection with no problem and we are happy that our historical house now has modern ameneties such as a dishwasher, ceiling fan, and light timers. Bruce communicated with us every step of the way and always made sure to clean the work area (since we had to live in the house during the remodel). I would highly recommend Bruce again.

This was my first experience working with Thumbtack and For U Builders. I have a small house, and in the past, many contractors have simply not returned my calls because the job was considered "too small to bother." For U Builders installed 2 new custom exterior doors on my home. From the very beginning, Brandon (scheduling) and John (owner) were very communicative -- we had to schedule around the door delivery, and they were able to fit in my project as soon as the last door arrived. Stephen (Carpenter) is amazing! He made it look so easy and was attentive to every detail -- my house was built in the 1930s, so adjustments were necessary to make everything fit. When the job was finished, there wasn't a trace of dust or debris anywhere! I am very, very happy with the results, and will definitely work with For U Builders in the future. The entire team are professional, friendly, efficient and a joy to work with! Thank you!

We recently bought a house that had an old 16x20 deck that was not up to code by any means, and was completely rotted through. We went through and got quotes from a few people on a complete rebuild as there was no saving the previous deck. Nate and Josh of Fortin & Miller Construction not only gave us the most reasonable price, but also actually listened to what we wanted and explained to us everything that needed to be done. Even with dealing with snow-pocalypse that was the whole month of march and having to add even more support posts for the building inspectors Nate and Josh we able to get this done properly and fast! We now have a beautiful and virtually indestructible deck that will probably outlive the house haha. We cannot recommend Fortin & Miller Construction enough, very professional, great communication, beautiful work, and overall really great guys!

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.

We had the pleasure of working with Mark Troiano from CJT Development to build our custom new house. He is everything you would want in your contractor. He made great suggestions and helped keep us stay within our budget. When we met with him to go over out blueprints he came back with ways we could save money and not lose the integrity of our dream home. He did an amazing job sticking to the time table that we discussed previous to starting our build. Mark does an amazing job of explaining the process of everything and stayed in constant contact with us throughout the entire project. He was always available to answer our questions whether it be in person, on the phone, text or email. Mark was always willing to help out where ever it was needed. He is hard working and honest and works with quality subcontractors. Our house came out beautiful and the quality is amazing. I would highly recommend Mark to do any project, and would hire him again in the Here is a link to our home on Houzz http://www.houzz.com/projects/1482269

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....

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.
