He fixed a walk in garage door which had some rot around the door jamb, installed a permanent curtain rod in the shower/tub, replaced a towel holder, replaced grout that had cracked in the bathroom, replaced cracked tile and grout in hallway and installed a ceiling fan remote in our family room. All of these jobs took about 15 hours. He knew what needed to be done and went right to work competing each job, with no time wasted. He was on time and called to let me know he was on his way. I can't find anything to complain about, quality looks great and everything is outstanding. In the future he should inform the client that a tile job will create dust The estimate he gave us was what he charged us. He told us that he has a warranty on all his work and will repair later if needed He was extremely courteous to us and to his assistant. He explained exactly what he wanted him to do and said please and thank you. Thanks Kraig and Steve!

Douglas began our relationship by being the first to respond to my search for a carpenter. He made an immediate stop for estimate. We talked about what I wanted, and he explained what he would most likely do. Our home is 95 year old bungalow so there were many termite or dry rot issues. He worked to make the repairs reasonable and use the original materials when he could, replacing only damaged sections as needed. He was punctual, and arrived early to work on the job. He worked around MY schedule since I had another contractor working on the roof one day in the middle and he used that day for other personal work. It appears he repaired or replaced all damages we discussed and the quality of work seems very good. I would have no problem in recommending Douglas to other people looking for a carpenter to do a variety of jobs at a competitive price.

> David has been our "go to" man for over 15 years. He always returns our phone calls quickly and when he does work for us we know it will be done correctly. He is a Master Carpenter, he has painted for us, he can repair or fix almost anything, he takes care of our home when we are not here-we trust him totally in everything. If something comes up that he feels he is not qualified for he doesn't hesitate to will recommend some others to us. We have never been disappointed in David.

    Not sure the above review is for real. I have used this contractor for many projects and his work is outstanding. He is very meticulous and his quality shows. He does everything! I have had him do remodeling and cabinetry. I found his prices reasonable and he got the job done when he projected to get it completed.

      Dahlke Carpentry Co. has a 5 star out of 5 star rating. Jim has completed 3 projects for us and we were completely satisfied. The work was completed within budget and on time. Having Jim as our general contractor was great as he supplied the carpenters, electrician, painter, tile, plasterer, and masons. His work was so good that 3 of our neighbors hired him to do major renovations to their homes.

      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.
