EBRR PROPERTY CLEANUP restored our house to beyond our expectations. Our tenant had trashed our place over several years and I was in a complete mess because of the situation that our renter had put us in. Eds group of workers were all very professional and actually completed the job ahead of schedule which was a blessing. Eddey responded immediately and I knew by his professionalism that my partner and I wanted to move forward with his company. The best part was his price was almost half vs. 1800 got junk and their competitors. You won't be disappointed by using his guys for any debris or property cleanup needs. Don't bother calling anybody else and thanks Ed for your help in this delicate situation.

Stewart did a terrific job getting our home ready to put on the market. He repaired and painted drywall, replaced light fixtures and outlets, did interior carpentry jobs, and generally did everything necessary to get the house in tip-top shape . He also rebuilt several exterior gates and stained the decks and fence. Stewart always arrived promptly and worked steadily for long days. He gave accurate estimates of how long each part of the job would take and gave good and fair advice on what needed to be done. His work was excellent, and I plan to go back to him for work in the future.

Saul and his colleague were excellent. I had a relatively small project (about 175ft of crown molding to install in two rooms), but Saul showed up on time and finished the job the same day. He also let me know of issues as they arose during the project so I could make the judgment calls on how to proceed. He was professional, courteous, timely, clean, and efficient. He is a rare find among handymen, and I would hire him again without hesitation.

Al sent us a carpenter - Mark - who was great. He was very proficient in his work - and worked basically unnoticed by us - with very little noise and almost no disturbance. He was able to quickly adjust to small difficulties (due to the backing of our cabinets), and finished his job quicker than expected. All around great experience - and would be happy to go with them again. Thanks again, to both Al and Mark!

Look no further. Juan is one of the best painters I've ever met. From the beginning of my search Juan's work and professionalism stood out among the others. As soon as I saw Juans portfolio online, I knew he was the right one for me. He is more than a painter. He's a carpenter, a handyman, and so much more. After all, that's really what folks need in a good painter. This conviction was confirmed even before I met him in person. Juan was forthright and proactive in laying out the logistics of what to expect in advance of our appointment. When he was running late for his appointment, he called to let me know. Once reviewing my project, he allowed enough time to talk with me about his style, his work, and listen to what I wanted and expected. Juan is friendly, personable, highly skilled at his trade, and very conscientious. He's a consummate professional and has very reasonable rates. He finished his job ahead of schedule and completed other tasks I asked if he could do. I am very pleased with the final results. He painted the entire interior of my home and kept a keen eye for fine detail throughout. I highly recommend Juan and encourage you to take the time to familiarize yourself with his work. Next time you need a painter, you now know who to call.

Ted completed some drywall work for me along with painting. He was an awesome handyman! I was pleased by the way in which he addressed each of my concerns regarding the work and replaced furniture and fully cleaned up after he was finished. I would definitely recommend Ted and his team to family or friends. If you have contracted for work in this area (DC metro) then you know how it can be hit or miss...Ted will not disappoint.

Mark has been a Godsend for myself and my landlord. On short (or no) notice he's been able to seamlessly complete a large variety of tasks thoroughly. He's painted, fixed others painting mistakes, assembled furniture, disassembled furniture, repaired furniture, and a plethora of other work. His work is grade A and I look forward to him doing more jobs for me.

I hired David to do drywall repair after a flood in basement. He gave a good estimate( very close to what insurance paid for). He arrived on time, kept me abreast of developments, and did an excellent job. He even came in on the 4th of July to repair a damaged corner of drywall. He is honest, trustworthy, and hardworking. He does the repairs himself, with an assistant. You can communicate your needs easily. I would definitely hire again.

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.

Do you tip cabinet installers?

In general, home service providers such as electricians, plumbers and contractors are professionals who don’t expect tips. They expect to do a job for you for the specific price they quoted. Of course, they may appreciate a tip for a job particularly well done or for which they’ve gone beyond what’s normally expected, such as completing the project early or under budget. Even better than a tip, it’s always appropriate to leave a positive review online after a good experience.

How much is custom cabinetry?

Custom cabinets can be built for any room, including bedroom closets and built-in armoires. Measured carefully and built precisely, custom cabinetry can increase storage and beautify any room. The national average for building custom cabinets ranges from $500 to $1,200 per linear foot. The cost is highly variable because there are so many styles, colors, glazes and other options. In general, the linear footage of the cabinets, the materials used to build them, and the cost of the labor will determine the cost. Solid wood costs more than plywood and wood veneer, and costs vary among different types of wood; maple and cherry cabinets are more expensive than pine. Glass-front cabinets can cost more, as can decorative hinges, handles and door pulls, which can cost $2-$45 each; choose carefully to stay within your budget and pull off the exact look you’re going for. Some carpenters also charge for installation, on average $100 per cabinet box. Additional molding and trim, such as crown molding at the ceiling, cost an average of $70 per 8-foot section, and adding finished ends to exposed cabinets averages $100-$200.

How much does it cost to have kitchen cabinets installed?

In any kitchen, the cabinets are the main focus, so you want to make sure new or replacement cabinets are installed correctly. A professional carpenter can properly, securely mount new cabinets to the wall; the national average cost for this service is $7,725, although the cost varies widely depending on the type of cabinets, their material and their size, and the accessories you add. A typical fee is $70 per linear foot to remove existing cabinets and assemble and install new ones; the cost is less if you do the demolition and removal yourself. Stock cabinets are the least expensive to have installed, ranging from $75 to $400 each; semi-custom cabinets range from $150 to $900 each; and custom cabinets cost from $500 to $1,400 each. Wood cabinets are more expensive than those made from plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and finished with a laminate. Wood cabinets range in cost from $80 to $160 per linear foot. Laminate-finished cabinets cost $35 to $75 per linear foot, on average.
