Kevin P. says, "UPDATE: So this was a one star review, but Ive amended it to 4 star. Im leaving my original review because its only right to describe the experience Ive had. Lets talk about the good: The foreman is an amazing employee. Extremely kind and caring and does great work. The quality of work is pretty good and all the things we wanted done were completed and completed in a timely manner. They did have an emergency job to attend to that extended the timelime, but they communicated that fully and kept us up to date. We're not the only client, so I understand and appreciate that. There was a mishap with lack of shoe covering and laying down tarps, but after bringing it up, they were very aware and even cleaned up some of the mud/dirt stains they caused. This I appreciated as well. The bad: Read the review below for the bad. Also, they could have done a better clean up, but i take some responsibility in that as I should have done a better walk through. Plus, I decided to take my dust-coated office into my own hands. They did an okay job cleaning up, but I was over it due to the negative experience already in regards to the computer. There was still some debris left behind, but that was my fault because I didnt look thoroughly enough. Mario did rectify the wrong doings the best he could. After posting this deeply honest review, we did have a talk and he apologized for being stubborn and accepted responsibility for the poor decision his employee had made. He did cover the repair/cleaning cost, and fortunately, nothing was damaged. Everything is good as new and even threw in a bottle of liquor. Understandably, I was infuriated. What was more infuriating that I tried to find a common ground. But he was pretty honest in genuine in trying to rectify the situation and take responsibility. In Mario's defense, he did his best to right the situation....after the fact. It leaves a sour taste in my mouth that it took a lot of back and forth and a really honest negative review to start some dialogue. ********************************************** So let’s talk about my experience. At first, everything was great. Prices were a bit high, but time wasn’t in our side and Mario as really friendly and worked with us and our budget. We needed mold removed from our ceiling in our bathroom and have an exhaust fan installed. We also wanted to fix a leak in the basement and add some doors to turn it into an income spot. Process was smooth and everything started quickly. Staff was friendly and extremely careful. They did bring some mud in (so no, they don’t have shoe covers like they state) but did clean it up and lay some sheets down afterwards prior to entering the house. The foreman was amazing and the highlight of our experience. Phenomenal work and very nice and friendly. He even threw in some extras like repainting our door and recaulking some things he didn’t have to in the bathroom. Now, let’s talk about the real issue here: the honesty and professionalism of the owner. They had brought a couple extra hands to help with the basement job. Fine. Typical. Well the room they were working on was also my office, containing my custom built computer and multi monitor set up. It’s not cheap. The least they could do was cover it up. Someone did work in there and didn’t bother covering the computer. Dust is EVERYWHERE. keyboard. Mouse. Tower. Monitors. Desk. Chair. Shelves. And not just a light layer. My computer was on and the fans sucked in the dust, getting allllllll over components. Brought it to the attention of Mario. It is his company. It is his staff. He denied any responsibility. He stated he doesn’t know where the dust came from and it can’t be from his guys. He even suggested all this dust came from outside because it was windy. Sent many pictures, which I have also attached as well, and refuses to accept any responsibility for this. You can literally see the dust everywhere. You can see where the mouse was sitting when the work was being done cause I moved the mouse and there’s a clean patch under it. He insinuated that the dust was from me. There’s no way I’m having a 2500 computer just collect that much dust. I tried to be reasonable and asked him to cover the cost of getting the computer cleaned properly. After all, it’s a result of his staff. He continuously refused and denied that the possibility of dust from the renovation. Mistakes happen. Nothing was truly damaged but my computer is filthy with all the components clogged with dust. I’m just asking to make the situation right. He never directly said it, but he insinuated that I was lying. His own staff had apologized and informed me that one of the guys was doing work and didn’t cover the desk area and that he would get things cleaned. Mario insisted that I never had that conversation and that his staff never had that conversation with me. Mind you, Mario hadn’t even come by at this point. I offered for him to come by and take a look and refused to. He even hung up on me. This is not professionalism. This is shady. This is dishonest. Literally, the dust everywhere matches the dust on the ground. I don’t understand why someone would be so adamant about something they haven’t even seen in person. I am a customer. I am paying you thousands of dollars. I’m asking you to accept responsibility for a mistake one of your staff members made and make it right. Now in his defense, he is paying for the computer, but only 100. He won’t pay anymore because he believes he’s not responsible for anything and doing it out of obligation rather than respect. This is leaving a sour taste in my mouth because of this. This is not professional. It’s like he doesn’t care about his customers. The pictures will be all the evidence anyone needs to see. Also, notice debris left on the floor after his staff left in a common area. And conveniently, that debris/dust matches the dust in the office, but still not enough evidence of wrong doing. There’s literally 5000 in electronics sitting in a room and he believes a layer of dust similar to that of a house sitting idle for 100 years is something I could do intentionally. Here’s another instance of lack of professionalism. To acquire a payment, he asked us to zelle him. Fine. Sure. It’s tracked and proof of payment so I went along. We hit a snag because the payment was too large and wouldn’t go through immediately. So I had to go out of my way and call my bank to stop the payment and then write a check. He’ll show up to collect money, and try to find ways to make more money by giving you more quotes, but he won’t show up to handle an issue his staff caused. Because he couldn’t get the money fast enough, we had to change the way we paid him. And then, he forgot he told me to cancel the zelle and write a check and proceeded to message me and ask my why is was cancelled, where I had to remind him. So, his foreman, great guy. Great work. The quality of work is okay. But professionalism and honesty of the owner? I wouldn’t deal with it again. My suggestion? Go with someone else that’s trustworthy and cares about their customers rather than just looking at us as a dollar sign."See more

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.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

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.

How do you find a good carpenter?

To find a good carpenter near you, do the following:

  • Use Thumbtack to find a list of carpenters in your area.
  • Filter the list by selecting a specific carpentry service, such as general carpentry or cabinetry. 
  • Identify carpenters who have high ratings.
  • View the carpenters’ profiles and learn more about their specialties. 
  • Read their customer reviews and look at photos of their past work.

After you get a good sense of their quality of work, make sure the carpenter has the necessary credentials in your state. Then, request several cost estimates for your project(s).

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.
