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.

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 needed to make my deck smaller, we had a game plan and decided to change it up. Saved us both hours of work and it looks great. Would definitely hire over and over again as needed. Great experience.

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.

We hired Edison to repair portions of the ceilings with retaping and mudding, painting the ceiling and installing molding. They did a really good job. We look forward to hiring them to complete the molding upstairs as well as a possible bathroom project.

We had a terrific experience with For U Builders, from the very beginning when I posted on Thumbtack, to the very end when they finished the job (building us a 20 x 26 ft deck) 1/2-full week ahead of their projected completion date. Brandon was incredibly responsive (including replying to texts and emails at all hours!), John (the owner) was personable, informative, and straight-forward, and the workers (led by Shamar) arrived on time, worked hard, and left the work site tidy and neat every single night when they left. When they placed one set of stairs a little farther to the center than we wanted, we simply said so and they immediately moved them, saying "No problem! We want you to be happy!" They were pleasant, professional, and very easy to work with. And we love our deck!! We wouldn't hesitate to hire them again, or to recommend them. Thanks!!

I had my living room dry wall done along with molding and I have to tell you that I couldn't be happier. The job was done quickly but beautifully. It's like I just had an extension built on from scratch it looks that new. I'm also having a deck built this spring and I'm excited to see the finished product. I recommend the service to all.

Dave Kraus did several jobs at my home including installation of new windows, a kitchen remodel and two new decks. He always came on time and did a terrific job. We were very pleased with the quality of his work and his prices were very competitive.

I had an old rotting wood deck that I wanted to replace with composite decking, Anthony was recommended by a friend and responded to my call right away, when he arrived to give me an estimate he was courteous and professional, the job , including railing was done shortly thereafter above and beyond my expectations. Anthony also cleaned up and removed all leftover material. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner of the company himself, I will be using him again for future renovations.

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.
