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.

I was truly impressed by the quality of work, professionalism, and commitment to the project at hand. I took a chance with Marty to build my deck and he shined like no other. Marty is a responsible gentleman that takes his business seriously and loves what he does. He adjusted to my needs, listened to my concerns, and most importantly showed up every single day to work hard. The finish product is amazing and quality in craftsmanship is top notch. Highly recommended… A+++++++++

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.

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!

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.

Rome was exceptionally reasonable with his pricing compared to other quotes we received, and he started at our soonest convenience. His talented crew were a pleasure to have in our home as they tackled several projects we were working on. We had Rome renovate our kitchen, wallpaper and paint our dining room, paint and renovate cabinets in our billiard room, and paint several other rooms in our home, they replaced several wood planks on our pergola and on the deck and steps that were unsafe and his wood worker went above and beyond with his amazing skills to go the extra mile with several things on the deck that needed changing or that that needed a face lift. They power washed our home and made it look new and replaced several odds and ends that had just been needing a new look. He was always willing to work around our busy schedules and eager to please. He is a very kind, pleasant presence which we appreciated as we were working with him and his crew for several weeks. They were always on time and clear about what they were doing and what they needed in order for us to prepare for different projects. We had our kitchen counters removed and a family member was going to be inheriting them, and he was even kind enough to take his time and his crews time to help transport them to the new owners vehicle which was greatly appreciated and much needed. I would go on and on about how Rome and his crew were a pleasure to work with but i dont want to fail to mention what a wonderful person he actually is and how he truly cares if you are happy with the outcome of things and the progress as well. Rome is a one of a kind find when it comes to anything having to do with your home and he will respect your home and things in it more then i have ever witnessed with any other company. He is a great man of his word and was a great find on this sight!!! We will always call Rome in the furure for anything relating to home improvement. If youre lucky enough to find him youre lucky enough!! Hopefully Rome gets to see this review so he knows how very thankful we are that we found him and were blessed enough to have him make our home everything we wanted and more!! Rome and his professional, caring crew are one of a kind, skilled and professional!!!!

Tony took the time to inspect our front porch steps, detail what needed to be replaced and what was still in good shape (saving us money), and chat with us about his business and what services he offers. He was friendly and professional - and he's dog-friendly! He replaced the rotted steps on our front porch and brought the old railings up to code, making sure they are very sturdy for my elderly mom who has two hip replacements and needs to be super careful. He did not contract this work out - he completed the entire project himself in one day. We promptly hired him again for another job.

I had Frankie and his crew finish my bathroom framing and put in a sonic tube and remove my chimney and satellite dishes. They were awesome. He even secured my old deck without even charging me !! They were friendly and punctual and clean!! They were worth every penny ,I will definitely hire them again for my future projects in my home.

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!

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.

Aduke and his team did a great job replacing the boards and stairs on my deck! He’s professional and an honest man who isn’t in this business to rip you off! While I originally booked him for my deck, he also gave me a great price to fix my driveway and completed both projects the same week! We look forward to having our deck painted by Aduke and his team in the next coming weeks and will not hesitate to book him again for our other projects.

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 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.

We truly enjoyed having CJT Development do a job for us, once he was done with the first job we decided to hired them for 2-3 more jobs that we were looking to do. We were very pleased with the work quality, we had a trench dug for outside lighting and after CJT was done he actually left the yard nicer than it was before. CJT prices were reasonable to say the least and it was worth every penny. Super excited to have them come back and start on our deck. We finally found a great company to help us check things off my "honey do list", and my husband is very willing to let them take his list from him...Thanks again CJT Development!

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.
