Bob is a detailed oriented person. He take time to make the job perfect! He is a true craftsman. I had him install a backsplash and sliding doors. I just hired him to do more repairs around the house. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends. I will post some pictures shortly.

I was looking for a Handyman on Thumbtack, after hearing from a few I decided to go with A&B... I would describe him as a master carpenter, his excellent craftsmanship, professionalism and value have earned him several other jobs that I need to have done.

Hired Bob and he was prompt, did great work and finished my project quickly. If you are looking for a handyman that is fair in price, knows what he's doing and is quick, hire Bob.

First home, first major project (totaled kitchen & total bath remodel) how exciting and scary is that! Hired Brian and Harry to do the work, not because they were the cheaper quote (they weren't), but because they had the experience, integrity and work ethic that I hold dear. They responded to my emails, texts, and photos when i was tearing down my kitchen wall and ceiling. Came to my home to see what these unknown factors I was discovering (think headaches.) Brought in their Electrician and Plumber to take a look, even before they were hired. Brian came to a Condo Assoc meeting to answer questions and reassure my neighbors of the upcoming remodel. This was not an easy remodel (are they ever?), but we stopped, consulted, evaluated the options and moved forward with each issue and there were a number of them. Many things I was sure of what I wanted, but there were a number of items i was unsure of. I felt comfortable consulting with B & H on choices I had to make, tapping into their experience/history with other projects. Very happy with my new kitchen and bath. Would hire them again and again.

We were extremely pleased with the work Brian did for us and most definitely plan to hire him again for other projects. He really knows his craft having learned at a young age from his father, who is a master carpenter. Brian's professionalism and communication skills are particularly notable. He took a lot of time with us - walking us through every step of the process. For example, we couldn't decide what color caulk to use in the bathroom, and he tested out 3 different colors to make sure we got just the one we liked. I would most definitely recommend Brian and already have more jobs in mind for him.

Teddy did a fantastic job dealing with a plumbing situation that was far worse than I initially thought. He quickly identified the problem and knew exactly how to tackle it. His rate is very reasonable compared to many others and he was also fair. When he had to go out for supplies, he did not charge me for drive time. During my time with him, I learned that, in addition to being a nice person, he’s really a Jack of All Trades. Not only is he a highly-skilled plumber, he’s also an electrician and carpenter. In fact, I’m hiring him to do some electrical work soon. I highly recommend Teddy Cook.

I have dealt with many contractors in my lifetime , however I can honestly say it was a pleasure dealing with Dan. I hired Dan to replace a deck on my home prior to putting it in the market for sale. Dan not only did an excellent job on the deck, he helped me make economical solutions to various repairs and remodel that ultimately help sale my home. What was most impressive is that Dan dealt with the constant hassle from the building department in a patient and professional manner. Most importantly the craftsmanship of the deck was so impressive that the inspector said "Your Contractor did right by you and built a deck that will outlast any deck I have seen in the past 2 years." If I was not moving out of state I would hire Dan to do any project in my house because it is not often you come across a true Master Carpenter and that is what you will get when you hire Dan.

Contractor called back promptly. Met me at the project on time. Submitted a prompt, reasonable quote. Mobilized and did the job on time. The crew is versatile. They did carpentry beyond simple repairs and masonry. They observed other small things that needed to be done and did them at no additional cost. My project was on an old Cape. Dan seemed highly qualified for historic restoration.

We were very pleased with the work Dan and his crew did on our cedar siding. He helpfully suggested we experiment with stain colors to be sure we would like the results. Our old shingles sometimes needed to be replaced and the carpentry was well done. We would highly recommend this company and would hire them again for projects. Thank you Dan & all the workers!

Glenn Scelza is a godsend. My old friend desperately needed help of a good carpenter to come and assess the benign neglect on the front of her antique home. Garage doors needed to be installed post haste, but the garage door company needed the repairs to be made first. I posted on Thumbtack and Glenn responded immediately. Glenn arrived and I could tell right away what a nice guy he is and is a seasoned carpenter/contractor. He assessed the project with a trained eye and zeroed in on what was good in terms of the construction and what looked bad to us, was very doable indeed.. He was very resourceful and made use of what could remain and shopped locally which I loved, for lumber, gutters, leaders and even found the novelty clapboard pieces to match the 1940's facade. He was very fair and open about what things would cost along with his craftsmanship which was worth every penny. I appreciate he could even work with us so late in the season even as winter weather set in. He will be present right after the holiday weekend to connect with the garage door people. When those vintage looking doors are installed the place will regain its curb appeal once again, thanks to Glenn. This guy is a keeper and I can see why is highly recommended! I add my recommendation to Thumbtack as well as our neighbors in the community. I look forward in working with Glenn on future projects. Thanks Glenn! Norm Peekskill, NY

Complete bathroom renovation. Demolition, removal, new walls, all new fixtures and tub plumbing, custom built-in cabinetry, and porcelain tile floors. Glenn and partner measured meticulously and finished everything when they said they would without damaging stair and hallway. Couldn't have asked for more for this cramped upstairs renovation in our older home.

We found Bruce on Thumbtack and this was the first time we took a quote from someone on this app. Our first impressions were great! For those who have had work done before, getting a contractor to show up on time when they say they will be there is half the battle sometimes. Bruce showed up when he said he would be there with what he needed to quote the job (again I cannot tell you how many times contractors will show up with nothing). Very professional and left a good first impression. We eventually hired him for the job of designing and building built ins around our fireplace. He based his designs of some ideas I found online, but his architectural skills of aesthetically designing the project to fit into our space were excellent and exactly what we wanted from him! The end result (which turned into a phase 2 project to again design and build an aesthetic beam and pillars separating our open floor plan and flow into the built ins he just made) was literally perfect. Matched our taste, design of the house and the craftsmen ship was some of the best I have seen. I don't like to talk cost because everyone has their own opinion on what is considered expensive however what I can say is he had 3 change orders on the whole project (one of which was a good size relatively speaking to the built in project) and he was clearly very fair and right in line with my expectations. This speaks volumes on the type of person and businessman he is. A++ contractor and will 100% be using him again in the future!

I would hire Bruce and Laura for any project I was planning. He is the rare craftsman who actually cares more about the quality of the job than you do. The job was impeccable and we have received countless compliments from neighbors, friends and other professional on what a outstanding job Bruce did. I cannot recommend him enough.

Bruce did a fantastic job on my deck job; was prompt and courteous, fairly priced, and the work was top-notch. I already hired him for another job, and will again in the future. Overall a great carpenter!

Felix, his brother and team roofed my home. I have had many contractors work at my house and these guys are by far the best. Great price, courteous crew, came early everyday, cleaned up every day worked late to get the project done quickly and most importantly the product was of high quality. They were also sure to treat my house and family with respect which you always have to worry about with many contractors. I will definitely be using them over other contractors for future projects. I recommend anyone unsure of who to use for their contracting needs to give these guys a shot. Great team and ownership.

Felix, the owner, and his crew, met my expectations and I am a very picky customer. They arrived on-time and stayed beyond 5pm to get the job done. Felix was eager to satisfy and made sure that I was completely happy. I had Hardy Plank and AZECK material installed on my back porch. I then hired him to close an exterior door and put up crown molding. Very detailed!! I highly recommend this contractor. His prices cannot be beat, trust me! I’ve been thru several carpenters who are only interested in ripping you off. Felix is more than reasonable.

We enjoyed working with Quito's Contractors for our siding project. We have an older house so, naturally, there were some bumps along the way. Felix and his team handled them in a very professional manner and still got the job done when they said they would. We would definitely recommend Quito's Contractors!

Joe is great. Totally proficient. Seems like there isn't much he can't do! I evaluated 4 offerings from thumbtack, all of them seemed very good. I ended up selecting Joe in part because he was able to do the most out of all of them- some could do part of the work but not the rest, etc. But the other reason is that I like Joe's business model. He's a sole proprietor, which to me, means the money I pay him isn't inflated in order to go towards paying for office rent or office workers, like the other companies, it goes right in his pocket. He's not cheap by any means, on par with the rest, maybe slightly lower? I guess there are advantages in working with a big company but they simply weren't clear to me during the selection process. The only down side is scheduling, but that is the issue no matter who does the job. To get the work done, well and right, it's pretty much up to the contractor to manage his workload. Joe's been great with that. It's clear he's busy, but he doesn't disappear, which is a big risk with contractors. Joe always follows up, so that's great. I highly recommend four star.

Joe's articulate, specialty, creative craftsmanship has made my house a home. With all of my intracasies, attention to detail and extensive out-of-the-box projects, Joe has always been patient and fun to work with. He takes the time to look at every angle & corner and provide guidance & advice in areas I never even thought to look. His meticulous nature and well thought-out mindset is why I would never trust another carpenter to touch my home. I've been partnering with Joe for 4 years now and have made numerous recommendations for him, and half my block has used his services to unbelievable satisfaction. I highly recommend Joe to anyone, and still have a laundry list of projects for him to complete!

I can say nothing but good things about my experience working with Chris. Initially, he kept in touch with me throughout the ordering process and delivery of the windows. He arrived promptly each day and put in a full day of work. Chris did an amazing job installing the windows. He went above and beyond what he needed to do. Some of the windows were a challenge, but he did a phenomenal job installing them. Chris was neat and cleaned up the work area each day. I would definitely recommend Chris for any construction project. A.K. Hopewell Junction

Craig was excellent. The job was to replace and install a new gable vent. He replied my job request and gave an estimate according to my job description within 30 minutes after i had submitted the job request. Initial phone call was smooth to setup appointment. Then we continued to communicate over text message. He was willing to change scheduled appointment one day ahead due to upcoming rain storm forecast. He arrived on time. Finished the job beautifully in just a little bit over an hour. This included climbing up and down the ladder 25 feet off ground multiple times to remove existing vinyl siding around the gable vent, removing existing bad gable vent, installing a new gable vent, and putting back the siding. He demonstrated excellent accuracy of workmanship skill, perfect adaptability according to existing environment and available materials, and most importantly the valuable dacades of experience backing his every decision and move. I would highly recommend him for any carpentry job.

Craig came to look at my fireplace the day after we first spoke. He measured, asked what i wanted done, and explained what he could do. He then came back to measure more exact and created the fireplace frame at his own home. He came back to bring the frame over, and installed it. Craig was reasonably priced and did beautiful work. We are beyond thrilled with the look of our fireplace now! (I haven’t decided what color to paint the frame, but he also offered to paint it for me.) Next time I need ANYTHING done, he’s the carpenter I’ll call! Thanks Craig!

I had inquired about getting my outdoor stairs repaired. The stringers were rotting away and needed to be replaced along with the treads. Essentially it was a whole new stair system. Craig was true to his word and estimates. Very reasonable pricing, clean work, super professional. I would highly recommend Craig to anyone looking for carpentry work.

We had complete wall painting plus building two large wall-to-wall library shelvings in a 3 bedroom apartment in Bronxville. The work was done quite professionally and according to our specific instructions. Mr Luis and his co-workers were prompt, very pleasant and trustworthy, and careful regarding their working areas and carpentry space; neat and clean. The cost was reasonable. For our future fixes we will most likely go back to them.

Jerry and his entire team perform outstanding work and are a pleasure to work with. I've used them for numerous projects, most recently a full renovation of a 2,300sf home. My timeline was short and they met the timing expectations and completed all aspects of the job at the highest level. I have full trust in them and the work they do. I know that they will do the work properly. Jerry is thorough in his work and always wants to make sure it is done right. He is extremely professional with me, my neighbors, and other contractors that may be involved in the project. Furthermore, he is always conscious of my costs. His estimates are thorough and completely open. I will use him for any project! Grant K. - Woodmere, NY

He has named his service Paul Best Construction Corp AND he sure lives up to that name! Paul is the best. I had three shelves built by ***another carpenter***. The issue was that when I placed them in my house I noticed that the shelves were uneven and off by an inch (much due to my incredibly uneven floors.) Anyway, Paul stepped in and saved the day. Him and his worker Edison were true creative problem solvers. They took an extreme tension to detail and made custom tweaks to the shelves as if they were fine tailors fitting a suit for the red carpet. What more can I say – Hire Paul.

I have used Dupree Carpentry many times for repairs and updates in my house. I feel that Mr. Dupree is very professional and knowledgable. He shows up on the agreed upon time and/ or is flexible and will work with your schedule. He is extremely knowledgable and has saved me ALOT!!!! of money and time. Knowing a little about the field, I have felt him to be honest and forthcoming when adding on to a job (for safety or cohesiveness of the over-all job) Ultimately I will always use Dupree Carpentry for any of my home projects no matter how big or small, and I highly recommend anyone in the tri-state area in need of an outstanding carpenter using him as well.
