Tony put in a 50 inch wall mount above a fireplace. He responded to my request quickly and professionally. He arrived early and was ready to go. Tony was funny and a pleasure to speak with while he worked. He did a supurb job and is highly recommended.

Rich responded quickly to my work request with a very reasonable quote. He worked with my wife and my schedule to find a time that worked for us, and he showed up during the time window he gave us! Once there, Rich and his co-worker were very friendly and efficient. We also got a little creative with how to complete the job so that my wife and I were 100% satisfied by the time they left (this was due to the layout of our home/awning, not anything that Rich could control). Would absolutely recommend his company's services.

I waited all summer for 3 other lawn care companies to not show for a few jobs we needed to our garden beds. I try Thumbtack and get an immediate reply AND service already completed to my delight. Three Fine Fellows. That's my nickname for Anthony's team who were so nice to me. I appreciate that and will recommend their service.

Glenn has seriously turned out to be the absolute best contractor that I have ever worked with! Ive had the opportunity to work with several others, both at my homes and at my businesses. A few contractors have been good, doing nice work for a fair price, but they were either too slow, too unreliable, or just couldn’t come up with creative ways to do things that were needed. Glenn completely remodeled a new salon for me, and built a custom color bar shelf, front desk, reclaimed beam stylist counter, and retail shelves. He worked with my budget, helping me make decisions based on the priorities, and was extremely friendly, professional, and reliable every step of the way. He went above and beyond, even facetiming with me or communicating with my husband when I was under the weather and couldn’t make it to the job site. I highly recommend him for any project, and will be using his services for every future project that I have, both in business and my home.

TAF Construction finished our patio roof and ceiling on time and budget. The weather turned quite cold for awhile but it did not deter the work from continuing. Excellent cleanup as well. We have an additional project and will use them again.

Mike was great. Our kitchen backsplash looks great, he fixed our squeaky floorboards and went above and beyond by ordering a special lock for our sliding door. I'd hire him again in a second!

Nothing but good things to say about Balco Landscapes! I had just completed two projects with separate big name contractors and the experiences were both horrible. Had I not been on home on several occasions, the work these other contractors did would have been done wrong and not to spec. So I was a bit uneasy when I realized that due to my work schedule, I would not be home for the entirety of the landscaping project with Balco. But, Balco Landscapes showed up every day, on time, and did the work they quoted. The work itself is stunning! The installed 2 flagstone patios over concrete base, a separate stacked stone retaining wall, and landscaped a garden bed horribly overgrown with weeds and planted agreed upon plants. Also planted a dogwood in the very back of the yard. Balco also pulled the necessary permits from Baltimore City (which in itself is no easy task). They quoted 2 weeks to complete the project and they finished in 1 week and 3 days. Harry and his team were nothing but courteous and professional from the moment they showed up in person to discuss design and requirements, through to the project's completion. The morning after the day in which it looked as though everything had been completed, I spoke directly with Harry to make sure they were done so I could finalize payment. Indeed they were... but Harry was already on his way to my house to shore up a joint line in one of the patios that "he wasn't happy with." I didn't ask him to do it... i didn't even recognize what he was talking about... but he came out on his own to take care of it. That is owning your workmanship. And that is respect for the homeowner. This is how working with contractors should always be!! They are already my decided choice for some additional work I'll have done in a few months. If you have landscaping needs, you'll be in good hands with Balco! A+ across the board.

I give my highest recommendation to Jake Esh and his team. Polite, professional, prompt - followed through on each and every detail of the project. The workmanship on my Trex deck is the best that I've seen. Not a single screw, fastener or flaw can be seen. The attention to detail was superb. Jake explained every option of each detail for approval prior to moving ahead with the work. He also fixed a roof leak that has been plaguing our house since we moved in - and did so at a very reasonable price. We had some good choices in deck builders as we conducted our search, but now that the project is completed we are convinced that we definitely made the right choice with Stoney Ridge Home Improvements. We'll be asking them back this spring to look at our other renovation projects we have planned.

I would like to commend Alex for his responsiveness and workmanship! He was hired to complete work left uncompleted by another contractor. Most contractors are not willing to do this. Due to an error in cabinetry on my end, he was willing to adjust his schedule and come back two laters later (allowing me time to purchase the correct cabinet) and complete the job even though it was my error that caused the delay. On the second day, he installed the correct cabinet and completed additional unfinished work left by the defaulted contractor which was not even in our original agreement. He made suggestions for (and installed) baseboard molding in a sun porch, which my client loved. He also made other suggestions to assist my client with a window seat that she was self-performing. There is still finished carpentry work remaining that needs to be performed towards the end of the project and I will definitely be calling Alex to provide those services!

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.

Michael was so easy to work with. He was flexible with our schedule, worked efficiently around our animals (we have 3), and turned out a truly amazing final product. Our backsplash looks phenomenal and was worth the time and money to have a professional come in and do the work. We would recommend his services to anyone and would be happy to use him again in the future!

Josh is outstanding in every way. We hired him to install mosaic border tile and to grout the entire kitchen floor. He is very reliable and does excellent work. He works until he gets the job done. He takes his time and is very detail oriented. We were so impressed by his work that we are trying to get on his busy schedule for future projects. Gail E 856-938-7515

Kevin did an excellent job enclosing my office to make it a bedroom, as well as fixing a minor roof issue I had. He responds to calls and emails quickly, shows up when expected, and gets the job done. He clearly take pride in his work and I will definitely keep him on my list.

Working with Jeff was excellent! He was very responsive, gave great suggestions on what we could do and talked over everything before starting so we understood what was being done and why. Our home is a 1960's brick ranch with a little bit of siding on the front porch and the sunroom out back. Jeff's team removed an old aluminum awning, replaced all our siding and cleaned up some old scallop decorations to look more modern. With all the rain we have been having, and being a smaller job, I was surprised when he called and asked if they could come on a Saturday and knock it out. We were available, they showed up in the morning and got it done in the day. The crew was very professional, friendly and honestly were so fun having around for the day. They would laugh at me every time they would catch me creeping out the window just being curious to watch what they were doing! I'm incredibly happy with the way everything came out and so excited to have things looking consistent around the house. We will certainly think about hiring Jeff and Icon again in the future.

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.
