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.

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.

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 was preparing my house for sale and I needed a number of repairs made to boost my sale price. I hired Mr. Paolino to rebuild and paint my front porch, repair my concrete walkway and assess and repair my roof and my chimney. All of these projects were completed on budget and within my tight time frame. They were in and out and left my property clean for my showings.

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.

DL painting did excellent work on the exterior of our house. Aside from painting the exterior, they also replaced shingles, did extensive carpentry work on our front porch and painted our garage. They worked all day long until the evening hours. Our neighbors are impressed with the finished work and we get compliments from passers-by. DL was professional, courteous and even agreed to change the color after they had primed most of the house already. I'd hire them again and I've recommended them to friends.

We had Rolland and his crew of pros build a deck for our home and it came out beautifully. Start to finish, it was everything that I asked for. We have already had a party with 20 people on the deck. Greatly increased our ability to enjoy our backyard. Would highly recommend.

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.

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.

I hired Agate & Co. to tear up, replace and stain my front porch floor. From start to finish, working with Jimmy of Agate & Co. was a great experience. Jimmy came to estimate the job and did the work himself, with one helper. His price was lower than competitors. He checked in along the way, answering questions and, when necessary, making slight revisions to the original plan. He definitely knew what he was doing and had good suggestions for how to do the job. He worked for three days, including very rainy days, to complete the job. Jimmy was exactly the guy I would have wanted someone to recommend to me.

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.

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.
