My experience with John Obloy and Complete Home Services was outstanding from beginning to conclusion. John is courteous, professional and takes pride in his work product. I am extremely particular and conducted research and read many reviews before deciding to hire John. I contacted John for an estimate for installation of crown molding on the first floor of my home. He immediately came to my home, took measurements and provided me with a quote for the work. We agreed upon the date for the work to be completed. John contacted me three days prior to the date to confirm the time. He and his colleague arrived early and began working immediately. The results are astonishing. With the addition of the crown molding, the first floor of my home was transformed into an elegant space. I am so pleased with the work. Fantastic job! I would definitely recommend Complete Home Services for any home repair or remodeling needs that you may have. I would definitely use their services again.

Mr. Robertson did exactly what he said he would do and did it extremely well. We are happy with the pressure washing of the deck and vinyl siding at the back of the house. The stained deck really "pops." Mark was a pleasure to work with and has a great work ethic. We plan to have him do other jobs in and around our home.

After consulting with us, Tom and his crew were able to effect some tricky repairs to our deck support posts. The newly braced supports are blended into the power washed and stained deck that TAF had to do over several rain delays to insure a good final finish. And as I'm am writing this Mr Falcone has called me to make sure we were satisfied with the work and made recommendations about moving our outdoor furniture back onto the deck. Professionals.

David has done a couple of jobs for my husband and I. He took the pieces of an old deck and built another patio deck using the existing materials. I’ve come to love the work that David does and he is now my general contractor for any work I need done around my house! I would use David over and over again and I recommend him to others.

Verified review

Joe Valentino built a raised deck on the back of my house as well as a brick patio. The development I live in requires approval and Joe went through the steps to get their approval as well as applying for all the permits for the township. He was very helpful in explaining the different type of decking material available and the costs associated with the choice I selected. He also went above and beyond safety measures. His style of construction is to build it so that it is made to last. I will be hiring Valentino to remodel my bathroom in the near future.

I cannot say enough good things about Martin and his work. He completely transformed the front of my house by removing overgrown landscaping and replacing it with a beautiful shrubs. We were talking 20 year old bushes and trees. He also sanded and stained my deck to make it look new. This was a tough task with aged wood. He was very reasonable but most importantly prompt, courteous, responsive and showed great care in every little detail. I will use only his services for the outdoors and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone.

Rich Higgins of The House Mechanix did two projects for us. The first was to install a sliding shower door that we purchased. He did a very professional job. We hired him again for a second project that included a long list of interior repairs. They included patching ceiling and wall drywall, priming and painting, and a large number of miscellaneous handyman items. We are very satisfied with his pricing and quality of work. We also found him very ethical and easy to deal with. Steve McEvoy West Chester, PA

We have a home with a wraparound deck on second floor. The issue at hand was the deck separated and dropped off from where it was attached to the back of house due to snow. From first contact the owner was very informative, professional and personable. He provided estimate and when we decided to have him return, he went above an beyond. He has truly been a pleasure while working through those difficult moments with insurance co and and a previous contractor. Whenever he said he's do something and or take care of something he deliverd a higher level then expected.

I had Ryan and his team out to complete a paint job in my living room, dining room, high foyer, and hallway. They were excellent to work with from the beginning. They were able to complete the job in a timely manner and were very professional. I liked their service so much that I have booked an additional paint project with them for my large finished basement. I also learned that they finish garages! I will be having them back to complete that as well!

I needed the ground leveled, a base built and a shed put up. They came the same day I requested a quote. I scheduled the job to be done in two weeks then had a change in my schedule and asked if they could come a week earlier which they did. They were on time, 8am and worked throughout the day until finished. They are very professional and cleaned up when finished. The cost was the price quoted, no surprise additions to the cost. I would definitely call them again for any future projects I need help with.

We had Wallace Construction finish our garage as well as rebuild our front deck. With us not being in the home all day, Larry was so good about sending pictures along the way and contacting us with any questions. I would highly recommend his company. A couple years ago they also painted our entire exterior, we used his suggestions and it turned out fantastic.

General Labor Services did a good job on a big 400 S/F deck from planning,permits,construction to clean up. Always on time and will work until the job is done from sun up to sun down. Pricing is fair and project based they offer both options of providing materials or preparing a list for your own procurement. General Labor Services provides start to finish services for all projects small to complex issues with a pricing plan that brings value to each a every client. General Labor Services is a good company to work with as they make the process easy to understand. Then go the extra mile to insure you the client are happy with the end solution.

Jason and his employee did a great job, they came and tried to get the job started even though weather was not helping they asked if it would be Ok to come back the following day (Saturday) to finish the job since weather was not on their side. I told them not to worry about it since it was a weekend Jason insisted on getting the job done on Saturday they showed up early the next morning and finished everything up. since I was at work in the morning he came to me and showed me photos of the finished work. Dirty Birds was quick to get me a estimate and to get me on their schedule would call them if I need anything else done. Prices were in line with other quotes.

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.
