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.

Having used Tom for many household repairs on a sixty year old house with profound water damage, I can't begin to say how dependable, skilled, insightful he has been with every project. He has installed windows,bathroom and dryer vents. Demolished and rebuilt my porch added a door and has done drywall for me. There is NOTHING he can't do.

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 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 a front porch overhang added to our home along with refacing of our kitchen cabinets. M&B Unlimited Construction did a very professional job in a timely manner. They are very detailed and precise with their work. They offered creative options to both projects and were very pleasant to work with. I would recommend them for any construction needs you may have.

Prompt, professional, and accommodating. VOAK worked with me to replace a 15+ year old Yankee gutter porch roof while I was out of the country, providing multiple repair options across a variety of price tiers, working with me to find the best payment method, and sharing pictures at each stage of the work process (below). Job was completed on time and on budget, even in the face a few unexpected circumstances with local officials. Beyond the skill required to complete a job on a style of roof rarely used these days, I particularly appreciate VOAK’s approach to business: a rare combination of professionalism and expertise that few contractors, even those much larger, possess. Highly recommend working with Vidmants and his team.

We hired 360 Property Care LLC to paint our front porch, back porch, and foundation. They also made a repair in the concrete of the front porch. Unlike a painting company, we were able to buy our own paint, which reduced the cost some. No scraping was offered, so my fiancee did that himself. We are happy with the result of the power washing, priming, and paint. In order to give us a way into our house, they ended up coming out four times, and after every time everything was cleaned up thoroughly. There was no paint dropped at all, including on our plants. We modified the original job some, and the adjusted price was reasonable. Just make sure to pay in cash to avoid a 4% fee.

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.

The best decision we made was to contract with Broomfield Building, LLC to convert our wood deck into a screened porch. Chris Broomfield is a professional, reliable, trustworthy, and dependable individual. We could not be happier with the results. Chris' attention to detail is impeccable. He continued to surprise us with the finishing touches along the way. He tied the gable roof into the existing structure seamlessly. He designed and installed the most beautiful barn doors for our porch. We cannot say enough about Chris and his work. We would highly recommend Broomfield Builders for your next project

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....

Heads turn when we are sitting on our front porch to admire our farmhouse built by Desiderio Construction. Each day I find something new to love about our house, from the amazing fireplace mantle designed by Johnny, to the convenience of electrical plugs located wherever I need them, to the warming fan in the Master Bath to the island in the kitchen that always has family surrounding it, to the gorgeous lighting throughout. Desiderio got us into our house and met the deadline we needed met. Meticulous attention to details, creative design, they know what is "in" and kick it up a notch--and they are just so nice and incredibly honest!

The initial spec was to prepare and paint the entire exterior of house. I added to the job spec as the high quality of work was observed. This included fixing ceiling tiles in basement playroom, replacing a sliding glass door, power-washing the roof, painting outside porch and epoxy paint garage floor and paint garage walls. It seemed that they were able to perform at the highest level of quality, anything I asked them to do. While painting was what I originally contracted for, they exhibited a very broad range of skills.

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.
